It does rain in Georgia!
LOL Would that be funny! I can just imagine if every Airstream trailer was pulled by an SOB motorhome and every Airstream Motorhome pulled an SOB trailer and then unhitched and parked!

Your Wally labeled edition would have been certain to have drawn comments. Mud fest 2002 sounds a lot like Woodstock with money.

Ah yes... I have heard about a rainy day in Georgia.

The way I read the response is that <gasp> he sounds like we do! The noive!.

I think this is the real way to look at this issue. Why would the Mandalay folks want to join an Airstream club? For the welcome? The only reason a Mandalay owner would want to join this club is because they already belong to the club and want to remain members. Think about it - without that link, new owners are not going to be joining.

IMHO. Love, Pat

Maybe the IBT should offer incentives for Mandalay owners to join WBCCI.

I think preferred parking, reimbursed mileage, and a few seats on the Board would bring in several new members.

Sorry for the ignorance...

Hello all -

Sorry for the ignorance on things on this thread - but what is the 'straw poll' running? Does this thing have a realistic chance? Or is the only way it could get through, on the 'amended motion' possibility....?

Again, sorry for any/all rehash... Thanks!

Axel

The consensus seems to be that this thing is going down in flames. But, we're all taking a cautious approach and many, including myself, will be at the delegates' meeting to watch the action.

Not lately. We are experiencing our worst drought in 50 years and it is expected to continue through September. Yesterday was a statewide day of prayer for rain for Georgia farmers. In fact, we have had a wild fire that has burned more than 500,000 acres in south Georgia/North Florida and has been burning since the end of March/early April. The rains we are having this week are the first rain of any significance that we have had this spring. It was reported this morning on the news that South Georgia farmers need 7 inches of rain over about a 5 day period just to catch up with the average for this time of year. It is pretty bad right now. Georgia farmers are particularly bad hit and are expected to be the worst hit in the country.

I really wish I could be there. Right in my backyard, too. Figuratively speaking, that is.

Silver Toy,

I was approaching this from the Mandalay Coach angle to see what the "possible-beneficiaries" of our MOTION would say about joining or not joining the WBCCI. Seems, the IBT has been touting increased membership from the Mandalay/Four Winds masses. Mandalay, for one isn't interested. FourWinds has no collective vote, since they have NO "brand" specific club. (Four Winds are all "gas-powered., they are farther down the food chain than Mandalay")

With no opposing views published in the BB, I wanted info to "Broad-Side" the IBT and their minions.

Sure would be great if you have internet from Perry to have everyone make update posts in a single thread such as news from Perry or some such title, but all would be posted as new in the WBCCI forums anyway. I am hoping many members will keep us abreast of the proceedings. I was planning on going and then pulled out because of the weather. I don't tolerate heat well whether it is the temperature or the political climate... so staying out of the kitchen on this one. At this point I have no doubt pro Airstream product will win out but I would like to hear where the chips fly.

Early on there was some interest from Don Shafer on the possibility of providing a simulcast but I think that has fallen by the wayside, probably not the image IBT would have been willing to project. You think?

I have a feeling someone from the VAC will have the technology to post the up-to-date information from Perry. If not from the VAC, then there are certainly a lot of folks from this forum that are techno-savy enough to do it. I wouldn't be surprised if Rich Luhr doesn't put info on his daily blog about it. This is such a monumental event in the history of the WBCCI that I can't imagine that somebody won't be giving us a blow-by-blow of what happens. I bet buttercup will have a transcript to post if no one else does.

It doesn't have to rain in Perry for a Mud Fest! Just think of all that grey water dumping around all those Airstreams! YUK! Let's just hope the only mud is in the eyes of IBT when their little scheme does go down in flames. the WBCCI is the one and only Airstream Club and should remain so!
