MAL member first - cause we could not find anyone to take our money from the home Unit -

They all Returned from south - so we transfered the membership to the Ontario Unit, once they realized they had members wanting to join

Did not fit the Unit -changed to MAL again

Could not vote - ticked off as we pay two separate memberships to retain two separate RED numbers for our specific year of the two vintage trailers we own - yep call us eccentric who cares.....

Wanted our rightly entitled vote so we joined the WDCU unit....

Now we are forced to play the by-law game with our membership so that we do not get soaked for two full memberships every year. We rotate our memberships so that they lapse per year - as the number can not be reassigned for two years - so until WBCCI establishes valued added service to its members then we shall exercise the rights within the Constitution. What would it take to have affiliate numbers with the same family name - not rocket science - they list multiple caravan numbers so no big deal in a directory.

Why are we still members - for the VERY expensive Red numbers and the history of the Airstream and NOTHING else these past 4 years. of which we have paid $140.00 2 years!!

We hope to participate in a few of the WDCU events this coming year. and will be running with number 1963 - next year we will be 1961 and will continue this way until the cows come home or we sell one of them and then we will have to start over again and pay the 140 for two numbers Has this club not heard of "Family" membership concept -just a family of Airstreams instead

Everything will be alright in the end. If it is not alright now, then it is not the end.

I have sat on the side, occasionally visiting these forums. The thread that is going on here seems to be too usual in these on-line forums. They seem to be expressions of dissatifaction with organizations by individuals who are articulate ---so articulate that they fail to see that they are unhappy because they do not put forth any effort. (They eat the food but criticize the cooks). I think they would be much happier if they could bring themselves to participate and undertake the chores and pleasures of helping to run Units. The WBCCI is a club of people--not metal. Come into the kitchen--you may find you like it!!!!

I don't agree with your statement.

I have been a member of a unit for three years and have actively participated in the unit. The unit structure is not us for reasons I don't want to detail here. I don't want to get into WBCCI bashing.

I started this thread to see if there are benefits in being a MAL beyond participating in caravans to help me decide my future course of action; nothing more, nothing less.
