Me too Roger! But guess just how many of us are WBCCI and even Metro Detroit unit members as well as Rivettes? We've been cross "bread" in the corn fields of Michigan and Ohio over pot luck for a while now. Our lines are pretty blurry and it just isn't because we like to drink together...or is it? We're very inclusive. We'll let in anybody... just bring beer. And instead of any Grievance Committees we have the Rudy Strike Team to take down our adversaries and we don't even have to take the time to hold a mock hearing before administering "justice. " It seems the numbers are increasing. The forum rallies and attendance outnumber the sanctioned club events. There are even former members who set aside the flags and the badges to just have fun and camp with the very same individuals but under a freer and equal venue. We all park together interspersed, motorhomes, old and new Airstreams perhaps even an SOB from local or afar, including Canada, without division, rank or intraclubs. Just imagine, a thing like that spreading. Who'd be left paying their dues (and homage) to the IBT's and volunteers' freebies and travel perks????

This thread is rapidly becoming the same as this thread: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f286...for-44657.html
Which mean two threads about the same thing... starting to forget where I'm at...

Seems they should be on the WBCCI forums... where WBCCI folks can comment on it and maybe do something about it...

I find myself commenting on the innate unfairness of it all without knowing what "the other side has to say". Well now, that's inherently unfair, isn't it?

I'm back at thinking "the heck with it... gonna just put my AIR # in blue on my 'Stream." Blue's as good as red and without the political issues 'cause we ain't go no stinkin' rules & dress code! Besides, the forums has "forums ralley's", too.
IMHO

I just learned that one unit is taking a stand on this issue.

They are withholding ALL 2009 WBCCI renewals and new
applications for the time being,
pending the outcome of the appeal before moving forward.

Point of clarification

I am missing something; I understand that Bob's letter stirred up the brown shirts at the IBT but I have not read about Leo. I realize he's at the heart of save wally but what official decree has come down on him?

I really get a kick out of these old timers thumping their chest and going for quality versus quantity. If the club is running in the red, how do they expect to balance the books by reducing the ranks?

One other question, do you have to be a WBCCI member to be in the VAC?

Regards,

D

Gosh 2Air, you aren't THE mad hatter????

But come to think of it, all these many riddles and stories, until we become so insulted with the IBT that we leave, we could claim that this is the craziest assemblage we have ever been part of. I feel like we are getting so small, just the membership numbers.

Who accidentally knocks over the jury box as they stand in alarm? Who argues with the Kings and Queens over the ridiculous proceedings, eventually refusing to hold their tongue? The familiar shout "Off with their heads!" but they are is unafraid, calling them out as just a pack of cards.

Maybe what you really need is to stop by Metro's Vineyard Rally next month. Wagon wheel parking, Texas Barbecue, smoked trailerside for 4+ hours. The vineyard tours, the wine tasting, the welcome baskets, the stargazing, the campfires, the drumming sessions. God (oops), sounds awful doesn't it?

__
Joined the Tidewater unit my first year as an Airstreamer. Nice people. Primary reason for dropping out was work. BUT they DID hold an hour church service on sunday morning, they DID have a fairly regimented meals, and when I invited one couple to see my CCD and offered them a glass of wine, why they acted like I'd just fed a baby to a shark! I don't know whether the whole club was "dry" at that point or whether they were primative Baptist or what. I was so put aback by their reaction that I actually quietly pulled up stakes and left a few hours early.

I imagine that even the Tidewater unit has loosened up as there were a couple of younger members there, and I've met several members from the New England and the D.C. units - and wow, talk about a night and day difference! I'll probably rejoin next year, but it will definitely be the DC unit.

Cross-fertilization IS already going on and will only increase over time. For most people change is painful and is to be avoided at all cost. For others, everything new is better. The truth is usually in the middle way.

BTW... random thought, Where in the heck did the expression "has a stick up his butt" come from and why does it indicate someone is uncompromising or immovable? (Oh snap... I literally just thought of an answer - Vlad the Impaler, i.e. historical Dracula). Well off to wikipedia to double check that.

Nah - it's much simpler than that.

Stick up the butt = unable to bend = inflexible, rigid

The one that has me puzzlin' to this day is the expression "It's blowin' like stink". Now where did THAT come from?

Don't know where it came from, probably out on the farm somewhere... and the stink coming from the same place as where the stick was stuck...

The WBCCI is far from broke. Lots of money in the bank for International officer's expenses and to waste on the Blue Beanie. The only issue with membership is the International. They want more people to attend, in their four winds.

But the way there is nothing stopping a group of people from starting a vintage aluminum club. And there is nothing stopping someone from belonging to both or three or what ever.

Hello, the WBCCI and its management is worthless. An organization that chooses to take action against an individual who is simply exercising his First Amendment Right does not deserve to be in existance. The entire management structure needs to be purged of the brain dead individuals who choose to take action against a member who proffers facts they do not want or like to hear. These are exactly the type of people who should not be in any way involved in the management of any organization.
