PennyRoseDad,

Welcome to Airforums! Like yourself, I voted for Richard (our unit split 50-50), but after meeting Jim at the Region 7 rally I was very impressed with him.

The historic Region 7 installation has already been discussed (off topic) on the International thread, including a picture. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f286...ml#post1188503 .

Penny Rose is a sweetie! And, I understand, never misses a happy hour. (Although she appears to have slept through the installation!)

If you have pressed jeans, maybe they hold you up while you nap. I didn't know anyone pressed jeans, wonder why they would, and maybe that turns jeans into casual slacks.

You'd have to sleep quick. This one took about five minutes.

It is obvious that you do not live in Texas. Pressed jeans are formal wear for ranchers, especially. They will be new, unfaded jeans with a crease ironed in.

And glad I don't. But here in rural Colorado it's hard to get the ranchers to wash much less wear new jeans. Ironed ones would be grounds for expulsion from the county.

I figure if the jeans are fairly clean (they don't stand up by themselves yet), they are formal enough for me. It must be a reaction to having to wear suits and ties. However, I do wash me, frequently.

Always cracks me up when the suggested dress code says "church-going-attire". At my church jeans and work shirts are commonly worn...by men AND women.

Finding Un-faded jeans in these parts is not an easy task anymore. Back in the old days having a pair of "broken in" jeans was an achievement. Straight leg red tag Levi's with no belt and a pair is Bass Docksiders with no socks were standard in my day

Now days you purchase them half worn out at cost twice the cost.

Richard will be running for the 3rd VP next year. Had the opportunity to visit with him at Sedalia and found him to be a very intellegent individual with a lot of experience working on different committees within WBCCI.

How many officers have won their position from the floor? And If Richard does not, how long would it take for him to move up in the usual chain of command?

Are there any current alternatives or initiatives to adopt or support in the WBCCI?

It will be very interesting if an individual were to state early in the selection process that he or she intends to run for office as to how the Nominating Committee will look upon that individual. Will they accept that level of volunteering or will they present another insider and openly work against that individual.

All I can suggest is if someone does intend to run that they start their campaign early enough to overcome the censorship historical presented by the BB to past individuals.

It is my understanding that the nominating committee starts looking for new officers as soon as the past international is over. I remember hearing John B. talking at the Region 12 rally in 2009 that he was being considered for 3IVP and was not sure that he wanted to put his name in. The Region 12 rally is held in October.

The nominating committee has to have the slate ready by the mid winter meeting.

I understand they are obligated to bring forward ALL qualified candidates, not just a recommendation.
