I'm continually amazed at how their garbage doesn't stink yet they are solely responsible for every bit of controversy this club has had over the last two years.

No, Leo. You are wrong. It is the "vocal minority" I am sure.

...not that there's anything wrong with that!

I guess I come from the camp of "Who Cares?"

Is 1st Lady, Gent, Mate something that really needs to be legislated?

At least they had some lively debate amongst each other.

I guess there's hope afterall.

One Region VP made a good point that using First Mate across the board is more welcoming to everyone, and I think he had a subtle but good point there. I like the fact that it eliminates distinctions between all types of couples. I'm all for fewer, not more, distinctions between members in the WBCCI. This is a small but positive step.

AARRGGGGHH,
OK, I agree completely with the First Lady (was OK in 1953) and the First Gentleman thing, but First Mate? Well then, we can trade in our Red Jackets for Puffy Shirts and Eye patches!

One problem they brought up was that "First Gentleman" would not fit on a badge.

If they would have adopted "First Gentleman" the IBT would still be in session now trying to figure out what a font is.....

When we get to the point where we label only the person elected to office and not the entire family (ie first granddaughter, 2nd son, first dog, 3rd parakeet) we will be making a little progress. Until then----

If spouses / significant others / etc. were referred to as WALLYS and STELLAS or RICKYS and LUCYS there wouldn't be a problem with the badges.

Meeting Info

WOW, the youth were out past curfew, that's one of the reasons I took my kids to these rallies! They could be with friends in a controlled environment that was safe and be on their own for some time after dark. They need time away from adults, you try to spend 3 or 4 weeks in 30 ft with 2 teens and not let them have some freedom.

On the dope smoking, come back to 30 feet and I will know right now if that was going on in my house. Hey grand ma and grand pa wake up and smell the dope! (If that is really what was going on) I have spent 9 years with the youth of the WBCCI and unless this is very different group than the last 9 years, I have a hard time believing that was going on.



The WBCCI youth program is one of the best I have ever seen.

What time was curfew? Were they expected to be in their trailers after curfew, or could they be "with" a group of people, youth and adults, socializing?

And another thing.... where could they get to that would give them ANY cover for that activity? Wake up and smell the..... is exactly right, no way that is going on with out being smelled. Not to mention the evidence of the physical effects left that you can spot easily . So, if it was rampant, it should have been obvious to more than a "few" folks.

Just my 2 cents....



Oh, I just thought of something.... Are you sure it wasn't the Adults "partying"?

When I heard the person report this I think that it was someone who had gotten up on the wrong side of the gacho that morning. Some older folks feel threatened when they are around a group of young people. I only mentioned this earlier as part of the lighter side of the club.
