The Parade Rules have been changed. New rule listed below.

American and Canadian flags or other National flags may be tastefully displayed and will be no larger than 3 x 5 feet, the size of the Color Guard flags that lead the parade. Audience members will be expected to uncover and stand only for the Color Guard flags as they pass in review.

Yeah, and what are they going to do if you violate the rules? Make you buy a Four Winds motorhome?

Klattu,

Dynamite paint job! But you don't need to worry about getting kicked out of the parade. . . 'cos a truck is not a flag. . .

Besides. . . it looks like the Powers That Be liberalized that rule.

Cheers,
Gort

Yes, they have lifted the ban on flags on 4th of July floats at the International in Bozeman. It was a very unpopular rule which caused bad feelings among many WBCCI members. It's nice that they have changed that rule, but it never should have seen the light of day in the first place. Haven't these people ever seen a 4th of July parade in small town America?

Silly rules like this one can be deal breakers.

Please remember that this is a camping club. I have enough people telling me what to do at work. There are a lot of differant personalitys at this type of gathering. I will say one thing, im not going to $5 a gallon for fuel to travel 1200 miles one way, and be worried about how i need to fly my flags. Its my rig, my cassa. I hope everyone has a good time, I know Me and mine will. Safe travels. Dan #7803

Sometimes all we need to do is point out a problem and it gets fixed, not immediately start throwing rocks. Obviously, whoever drafted the rules didn't think them through before they were published. This should have been caught in review, but stuff happens. Nevertheless, it's fixed now.

See you in Bozeman,

Randy

I am not a WBCCI member and I don't play one on TV.

But I have been a Boy Scout, Scoutmaster, and Military Honor Guard member. And anyone who has read the Boy Scout Manual has read a chapter on proper display of the US Flag. The original rule was proper flag ettiquette according to what people used to be considerd respectful display of the flag.
There is absoultly nothing wrong (in my opinion FWIW) with displaying a flag flying from a vehicle or marching ahead of a unit, but tacking it on a float or wrapping your scurfey little dog in it and not allowing the tail to fly free is not respectful. (the free tail flapping in the wind symbolizes our freedoms!) Thats what bunting is for. The Flag is not clothing or decoration, It is the symbol of our Country, and the blood we have spilled protecting our freedoms and rights!
Proper respect requires you to stand, uncover and salute Old Glory when it passes, something I rarely see happen any longer, and I miss seeing.

Eric

Who are these people????
I guess they let the rule run wild as I saw flags.

That's as it should be.

Sorry we couldn't be there this year Ed, but had issues with Lynn's 99 year old father.

Wanted to go to VAC in Colorado again, but they moved it too far into August. We willl be elsewhere.

Cheers

Clif is OK. It's care-giver issues. We must make sure about all of that before we go far away. We had to move him. Think all is OK now. We think we will be able to go north on our annual six week kite flying vacation.
