Jack, I don't know the situation with your local unit, but after not hearing from ours for a couple of years, and with them never changing their meetings to other than work days, we made the same decision last year not to renew in WBCCI. We'd been MALs before that, but let ourselves be talked into joining a unit at a region rally. At the last minute last year, we changed our mind and renewed to maintain access to WBCCI parks.

This year, we renewed with the Pensacola unit (my home town) because we hope to retire down there some day and want to help them continue Mystic Springs park. In retrospect, we should've done it years ago, and would rather give them the unit fee than give it to WBCCI as a MAL.

I'm sure you've thought this through, but I'll just offer you certainly aren't the only one making that decision.

Jack,

Hate to see ya go. I would like the chance to talk you into staying and joining the WDCU. We have members all over the USA, all biz/voting are done online. Our age group is the following, 30% 35-50yrs, 40% 50-65yrs, 30 over 65yrs. We have rallies up and down the east coast. Matt Worner in NM is talking about having a WDCU rally out west. Over the past couple of months, we've had a bunch of people join from the left coast, from CA, CO, NM, OR, TX and AZ. I will even make this offer. If you pay your WBCCI dues, I'll pay your WDCU Unit dues (There only $1.00). Who knows, maybe we could have a WDCU West Coast Sub-Unit. Well, what ya say?? Please!!

Well I did the local unit's web site and I served as a trustee. Bottom line with the job here at the Convention Center, my rally time has been severely limited. Secondly we attempted to do some informal rallies last year. One I sponsored and the other was done by another forums member who also is a member of the unit. Bottom line both had miserable attendance. The exisitng membership obviously wants to stay traditional and at this point most of the new members that joined during my 4 years quit after their first year. Bottom line they have lost membership, and the local unit continues its decline. Unless things change I truly expect that the unit will fail within the next 5-10 years.

Yes there are a few folks who are unhappy that I'm leaving but I just don't have the time to devote. I don't go to the International, I don't caravan, and I've only done two rallies this year with the unit both of which were the informal ones. I can put my dues towards something that will give me more enjoyment.

Who knows I may come back, but to be honest, losses of members will change WBCCI....one way or the other. I just don't want the bulk of my $$ funding the International as it runs today.

Jack
