Thanks Steve, I can't wait to see you at the next rally! Bring the trailer and we'll have a workshop "See Steve Restore His Trailer" What that would amount to is a bunch of us sitting in our chairs providing restoration guidance while handing you your next drink. We could be moved to getting a tool or two that you might need too!

In reality there are many things that I learned during the restoration of my 3 vintage Airstreams at our rallies that helped me put them back together. Matter of fact it was at a WI Unit rally that I discovered my 68. We (the 4 of us) were using a 61 Tradewind when a member came up to me and said I needed a bigger trailer for the kids and that he had just what I needed. A week later I pulled the Sovereign home and have had it ever since, that was almost 9 years ago now. It was a great find that would have never happened if I had not been a WBCCI member, just another benefit of the club.

Also I will note that a WBCCI member is never alone, you will be amazed at the help on and off the road this group can provide!

Ed

I guess I’m Stumping again

Ed,

Everyone should familiarize themselves with your great statement and never forget it, and pass it on. "...a WBCCI member is never alone..." Amen.

Hey a rally flier telling the membership of Region 7 why they need to vote for me! I need to get to work! A flier is needed! I need art work, I need to call my brother the art major, I need to call my publicist, I need help……………!

Hey, Ed,

In all seriousness (totally out of sync with this thread--sorry about that), you only need to convince three people--the nominating committee. They're going to pick the next VP.

Good luck,
Nuvi

Nuvite hit the nail square on the head. Convince at least two of the committee members and you are as good as elected. Include in your oral interview comments some of the attributes listed in post #4.

A lot of preparation and Good luck will follow.

Leo,

Don't sell Joan Lahr short. She's put an equal or greater effort into WI unit and Region 7 activities, just not VAC. She is probably better known in Region 7 outside of Wisconsin than Ed is. Truthfully, it's a tough call. I count them both as good friends.

See you down the road,
Nuvi

That is exactly the point. We are lucky enough to have 2 individuals who I believe can do a good job. Even though the committee is supposed to pick one, I want the membership to have the informations pertaining to both candidates. I will be glad to work either of them.

Thanks Pete!


John is right, Joan is a great candidate; she is very interested in the well being of the club. I like Joan and Mike very much and they have done a lot to help the WI Unit in the last few years and would represent the Region very well. Matter of fact she would probably represent the Region’s wishes better than I would. With that said I think that at the IBT level she brings to the table status quo where I want change, dramatic change. Joan likes the traditional club; I want a more progressive approach to the future. Joan will work with in the system; I will try to change that system.
In truth either of us would serve the Region well.
Ed

You don't know how close to home that lands. I only live about 30 miles from all the places he talks about in his show. He was a DJ our at St Johns college many years ago when he picked up a lot of his material. We even have the "Lake Wobegone bike trail" out here.

Hi, Pete,

Can you give us some idea when the nominating committee will render a verdict?

I read the bylaws and it looks like you are supposed to present a ballot to the units by the end of January, but maybe you will be ready to announce sooner?

Thanks,
Nuvi

No promises as to when, but I expect we will have it done well before January 1. Also the MN unit voted to have the election for the VP done with a mail ballot which will include both candidates responses to our questions.
