Good thread with some great ideas...and no negativity. Where's the 'like' button?!

Our unit, the Central Coast California unit, utilizes Facebook. Due to member concerns, it's a closed page for unit members only and works very well. We share experiences and photos with club members who are unable to make a rally or event. When heading out on the road, it's used to ask member input of favorite campsites, etc. I highly endorse Fb as a way to communicate with members in a timely manner.

KenSanLan....to private message (PM) a Forum member, click on the member's name for a drop down box. Good luck!

Teresa....you NEVER look dorky! Missed you at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta this year!

Dan (ddrucker) has pretty much covered club activities. We are not retired, but our kids are in college. So we are also on the weekends-only, 4-weeks-a-year plan.

The logo needs an update. It's too busy and doesn't reduce well enough to be used in the title bar. Take a look at Facebook, Microsoft, Google, and Airstream. They all have versions of their logos that are recognizable in the title bar.

I'm surprised by the number of ads. For $65+ per year, I expect not to have ads on the website.

We've met several club members on our trips, and we've only had the trailer for 3 months. Everyone has been friendly and they all like to talk about Airstreams. In particular, they like to talk about their trips and their specific trailer. Each trailer has a story. I'd like to see more of that "brand" come through in the web site. The current brand seems to be all about Wally, but Wally is gone now.

The logo where? I can no longer find the website unless it's the beta WBCCI.net, is it? That is all Google renders.

Thanks Bill. Is the WBCCI .net also an official website? I am embarrassed to say I can't keep up with what is and what is not. I wonder why the .org site does not show in the search engines...life used to be so easy... I am so confused!

Yes it is confusing having both wbcci.org and wbcci.net. But it's going to remain this way for a while longer.

wbcci.org is the where HQ and all International stuff will be hosted and posted.

wbcci.net is where all Unit and Caravan websites are hosted.

The long term goal will be to combine everything into one site with one domain name, but it's going to take time and more resources, which the ECC doesn't have currently.

Just another thought, I don't have a family of my own and am not retired yet I do not know what goes on at a Rally. What do people do besides a pot luck and park near each other - not being negative at all just curious if there are local activities pertaining to the rallies, etc. Perhaps some old iteneraries for people to look at would also help garner interest.

Don't feel alone. I'm also single, still working, and have never attended a Rally, WBCCI or otherwise. I will be attending a non-WBCCI really over the Veterans' Day weekend, and expect it to be a learning experience.

In my limited experience (2 years) the activities at rallys vary widely, depending on the type of rally, the organizers, and the location. There are rallies that have a theme or purpose, like the Vintage Airstream Club rallies during which there are seminars and presentations about various aspects of restoring and maintaining vintage units. There is an annual Christmas rally in Blanco, TX (an AIRForums rally, not WBCCI) with a gift exchange, Christmas flamingo decoration contest, etc. There's a Texas rally next year that's focused on BBQ.

Lots of rallies have an "open house" time scheduled, during which you can show off your own trailer and see what others have done with theirs without feeling like you're intruding by asking for a tour.

The big WBCCI rallies (regional ones) seem to be a bit more traditional, with lots of catered meals for all the attendees and organized events like pet shows, vendor sales/swap meets, etc. (Take that assessment with a grain of salt, I've been to exactly 1 regional rally.)

One of the best I've been to was planned by a wonderful couple who were a little frustrated that they always seemed to be busy when rallies and other big group events were scheduled, so they staged their own. It was a nice campground (Mill Creek Park Corps of Engineers facility in SE Texas) and just a fun, friendly group of people without lots of tightly planned events, but we had a great pot luck and a fun time meeting new people and getting to know them.

Yep. That's the one I'm going to over the Veterans' Day weekend. Mill Creek Park is on the shores of Sam Rayburn Lake.
