Also check and see just where the unit meets and how far you would need to travel for the monthly or quarterly meetings ... that's what has confused our joining ... cost vs benefit analysis.

Carol,

You may remember that was done a couple of years ago, with these dueling threads, "Bravo WBCCI" and "Good Bye WBCCI"

There are more options to attend rallies than every before, and surely more to come. As things evolve, clubs are forming to meet specific needs or groups. There are vintage clubs, air forum rallies and meet ups, The Airstreamers Club or TAC, Military Veterans Clubs, WBCCI Clubs and also professional touring companies. It all depends on what you are looking for. You also need to discover exactly how important membership in a club is to your enjoyment of your Airstream product. For many, rallies are a minor component and most of their use is on their own and they like the independence. Some never ever attend rallies. For others about the only time they use their trailer is to go on a rally. Try different things and figure out exactly what suits you.

If/when we buy an Airstream we'll consider joining WBCCI. Most likely we'll join for a year and see what sort of benefit we get for our $100 (or so). As several others have said, there are all sorts of clubs one can join, so finding those that fit our lifestyle is something that will take some research. Those that we elect not to join are not necessarily bad, just not for us.

Last spring we visited the Branson Rally for a couple of hours and were warmly welcomed. We had planned to visit the Sedalia Rally this summer, but that may or may not happen due to some family events that may change our summer plans a bit. If we get to attend I have no doubt that we will be warmly welcomed there, too, although not eligible to attend most of the activities.

WBCCI isn't for every Airstream owner, and every owner needs to make his or her own decision about it. Telling someone not to join without knowing the people and their interests seems a bit strange.

I sent my membership application in today. I figured why not go ahead and join. If I find that it is not for me, no big deal I just won’t renew. Times are changing and membership driven organizations have to change with them or get left in the dust. After all the controversy recently it seems that the new leadership is really trying to make some meaningful changes to bring the club more in line with the wishes of many of the members and reaching out to Airstream owners that are not members. I get this impression from reading the current “Blue Beret”. I still don’t get the “caravan” appeal, it is not for me. Sounds way too organized for my taste. But, that may change one of these days and I might have to give one a try after my second retirement this time next year.

That's great! I'm glad you gave them a shot and no matter the national politics, we all,have one common denominator... Lots of aluminum!

Glad to hear you enjoyed your time with the Denver unit - that's how I got to know the members of the OR Unit...attended breakfasts & rallies for the day until our AS was ready for her debut. Have a fantastic time on your AS Adventures!!

Enjoy

Anna, I am just finding this thread as I have been inactive on Airforums for some time now. So happy you are enjoying the Denver Unit. Congratulations.

We joined WBCCI in 1995, when we were 39/42, with a young son and have been members ever since. The club and our unit have gone through much change. We've gone with it and been catalysts for some changes. It's been a great experience and we have wonderful friends. At times we've been involved up to our necks and other times we've been off to the sides, depending on our other life demands.

We can't wait to start the camping seasont this year! Have fun.
