Caution: Another Shamless Plug For the Oct. Rally!!!!

This October Rally is geared toward youth BUT the activities planned are AGELESS!!!
Treasure Hunting/Geocaching if we have time, bonfires, storytellers at Adams Farm with a discount in usual cost from the generous owners of Adams farm. Costumes, pumpkin carving, decorations, a large pavillion for us to use. All sites with electric and water.

Any member of the club AND the forum is welcome as guests. I'm hoping some Canadian forum members who have replied to this thread will consider coming!!!!

Let's Get this Thread Back on Topic...

This thread is supposed to be devoted to wailing, moaning, and discontent. Somehow we have let it drift back to feelgood discussions of beautiful campgrounds and enjoyable rally activities. Even rgesch, the thread's author, has been subverted into describing the "ageless" possibilities of a WBCCI rally. This thread has been hijacked. Where is the outrage?

Astute observation. that is exactly what we've done...diffused a bomb, and turned it into a bouquet.

focus on the good; not the frumpy old buzz-kills that give wally a bad name. Ignore them, and they'll go away.
You can't make Wally's club fun by quitting.
repeat after me:
we have fun when we're just camping....
we have fun when we're just camping....
we have fun when we're just camping...

MAL-Content

Okay, yes you are right, I guess I'm a very positive person so I find myself by nature pulling myself out of the muck even when I started it in the first place.

I still am considering starting my own MAL-Content Club where I just host gatherings, camp do what I want and anyone can come.

There is nothing in the BB that says I can't.

Actually instead of Renegade Rallies that don't fit the mold like the NEU does I think I will start hosting MAL-Content rallies. What do you guys think about that?

A chance meeting with you in a snowy campground in March is the reason I have my red numbers (on plexiglass). If you leave , they win , and then who will guide me .



P.S. Yes ,this is a guilt trip

Memphis Malcontents???

We are a group of 2 streaming families in the Memphis area with new toys. We don't know if we are Mal's or not, just know we want to go camping, have campfires, drink adult beverages and laugh a lot. Sometimes we get a little loud and there is never a dull moment. We would love to have some other folks join us; Mal's, WBCCI's, VAC's or whatever. If you can stand us we know we can stand you! Anybody up for the challenge?

Greg

Me too, me too.

I want to join in with rgesch on the WBCCI MALcontent Club guilt trips, er, get-togethers. We'll code name it just camping and no one will suspect that it's really, um, just camping. And we'll toast the camper who breaks the most rules and if anyone wants to bring along some whining and outrage that's okay too. We'll just use them to practice Yuki's handy hints on the exorcism of "crabs" and give out pointers and tips to get through the 5-step program.

My wife calls me an incurable optimist. Four more than four years I would look forward to the next rally or unit activity, only to be subject of gossip or criticism for trying to break out of the stifling routine. One time it was because we left the rally location to spend the day hiking and sightseeing in the mountains surrounding Telluride, CO. ( Harumph! You didn't attend the business meeting) Another time we refused to wear our yellow vests. (Harumph! You aren't showing unit spirit) Another time We donated a case of Two Buck Chuck to the potluck dinner (Harumph! You have open wine bottles on the table).
That's why I will be a MAL-content (contented MAL?) next year.

We have rallies where that is the actual theme! (personally, I could do without the "themes"...but if yer gonna have one, this is as good as any! )

The only "Haurmph!" you'll get from us is if you forget to bring a cork screw!
