I am not quite sure 2 locations on the same street 3 blocks apart and on opposite side of the street constitutes sharing and address. Jackson Center is small but the post office has some standards they operate with.

Other than a few pictures of past Presidents of WBCCI hanging on the wall as you enter the Airstream plant I don't think there is any current relationship between the 2 corporations.

ON to new business:

Lets set some parameters, it seems inevitable.
Re-badged Thor motorhomes as Airstreams or any other Class A Coach.

For current WBCCI members in good standing currently owning trailer or motorhome.
No past WBCCI members wanting to rejoin in a re-badged THOR or other Class A coach.
New re-badged THOR/other Class A WBCCI member to be treated as current affilate Unit member.
NO Voting privledges
NO officer positons, must resign upon purchasing re-badged coach
NO membership issued to Used purchaser to join WBCCI when re-badged coach is re-sold.

Just a few thoughts.

Headquarters has said that a transcript should be out by the 16th of July. I think we will have to call to get it.

One could clearly get the impression you want to take the Goodies away from the current leadership.

Naaah, where did you ever get that impression? They say their current Class A motorhomes are too old and costly to maintain. They say, its all about fun, friends and fellowship. So, let's allow them a new motorhome. These are just a few tiny restrictions, not a bother, 'cause they will have a new coach.
Is this unfair?

Well, if you look at the link for Thor, the addresses and PO Boxes are the same for Thor and Airstream, that's all I'm sayin'.

I definitely think some parameters would have to be set up too. But I'm going to go with if it's okay for some then it's ok for all. As one person pointed out what if further down the road he will need to move from a trailer to a motorhome. It shouldn't matter what the reason, who you are or what you own or when this happens. It's either OK or it's not. KISS Also there is nothing about a sob that makes it an Airstream with or without a badge. If non-Airstreams are going to be allowed into the club then all should be allowed into the club. I agree with making a separate associate membership with no voting and no holding office and a parking area designated for associates. We already have segregated parking at the Internationals according to presidents row, VAC, pets, generators, caravans...um presidents row is not to be that caravan area either, no sobs in the front places, to the rear of the concourse, just like Tin Can Tourists.

Just tell me what is it about non Airstream owners that want to be in an Airstream club anyway? I guess for practical purposes those types have moved on from loving Airstreams a long long time ago. Why should those types be the Airstream leaders? Makes absolutely no sense. If it's about their friends wont their friends still see them anymore if they aren't in the club?

Lets look at an example of allowing none Airstreamers into an Airstream only system.

Traveler Rest in Fl. used to be an All Airstream Resort. Several years back during the last recession the attendance started to drop off. A vote was take to allow None Airstream unit in and to allow them to purchase lots. The Resort is now close to 75/25 and a major distinction is becoming apparent. The None Airstreamers are not the type that volunteer towards to support of the Resort activities, clubs, planning, the Snack Shop, and set up and clean up of activities in the hall. They prefer to enjoy the comforts without the work. Travelers Rest is still functioning but as the ratio increases in favor of None Airstreamers the Resort will deteriorate or cost will increase to offset the reduction in volunteerism.

Now that said there are quite a number of PIPs and other current Leaders that winter at Travelers Rest. After they get their SOBs which side will they support? Maybe Gold Row Seating in the hall Saturday night without the expectation of having to help put the chairs away after the show.

An interesting twist from someone that was in attendance at the IBT meeting. This was posted on my units Group Site.

Quote
I was at the meeting, at International, when Larry Huddle promoted the
motorhome idea again.

He made it very clear that Thor would be happy to make an "Airstream"
badged Mandalay.....

Very clear!

He said anytime that the WBCCI members want one they will start turning
them out....

There was a smattering of applause.
End Quote

Looks like the STUDY will be short and sweet, or a quoted above VERY CLEAR

Mandalay is willing to put Airstream writing on a Mandalay body? Perhaps... But isn't that kind of tacky? Apparently anything for a buck these days. Airstream will you really allow your brand to be besmirched like that? There goes our values and the neighborhood. Wait where's the awards? Give these people a hand and the Airstream chairman too. I'd say it might just be perfect for those who enjoy special recognition. Where's that spotlight? This is silly. Just give 'em a big "A" and let them wear it!

Why are they not archiving the broadcast of the meeting, as they said they would, do we know?

I attended the Larry Huttle presentation. My notes and recollection indicate that he presented an OPTION for the Club that would involve Re-Badging a Damon / Four Winds (now merged) Motorhome as an Airstream IF the club made a significant commitment. Airstream is NOT producing Class As and these motorhomes would not be Airstream products.

My impression from his suggestion is that the Club had been asking for an option, not that Larry Huttle and Airstream wanted to re-badge Damon / Four Winds products.

The Club is for owners of products manufactured by Airstream, Inc. This change would require a revision to the Constitution. 2/3 of members must agree. I can't believe they are asking again for the 3rd time in 4 years.
