I see "it"

as a snowball of opportunuity, goodwill on our part to make our club what we want it to be... and if a greiveance comes out of good will, then so be it... but if people that "make grievances" are reading it, I don't think that's Paul's intention... it's the cool eye patch in the goody bag

Paul,I think this could be a great idea.I like the suggestion that it has something to do that is kid related.
I'm sure as the thread progresses there will be several more ideas and suggestions to consider.
Overall if done correctly it could be great exposure for the Forums.

Great idea, but if you want to sponsor something that doesn't already exist at an International then you will have to get someone to be in charge of it, organize it, and get the volunteers to run it.

My gut reaction is that they will reject your offer.

However its still worth $25.00 to me to see if.

A, They will agree.

B, You can get an Airforums eyepatch in the goodie bag.

There are more ways than one to affect change.

Paul is just full of great ideas, I love it!

Rob
The sponsorship is a good fresh idea, Rob's idea is a great idea for anyone trying to convince their family that the International could actually be fun. Sign me up for Rob's idea, my kids would have a ball!!!!

On a serious note... if you are not happy with the course the ship is sailing you have three choices;
A) follow the set course and hope for the best.
B) Talk a bunch of stuff about how bad it is and how it could be better, but do nothing to actually influence a change.
C) Take the helm and sail the ship where you want it.

Interesting Idea

I generally like the idea but suspect headquarters may not be accepting of the name - Pirates...

I'll give some thought to contributing since I believe the club does need a shake up. Along those lines I think it's appropriate that we lobby the club for a virtual unit. I suggested this in person at the member share meeting in Perry, I subsequently sent a letter to the president (last year) and have now sent an email to the 2020 committee recommending a virtual unit.

A virtual unit could be a nationwide (perhaps worldwide) means of participating. I think it would capture a large number of MALs and would capture an untapped portion of Airforums members. I think it's an idea whose time has come. We are in the 21st century after all and there are plenty of organizations and social networks that are entirely virtual. I realize some would not join because their anonymity (sp?) would be compromised.

VIRTUAL UNIT - what do you think?

I don't want to hijack the Pirates thread since it is a conversation worth having (and if accepted, I would be willing to throw some dollars towards) but --

nvestysly -- you should start a fresh thread titled -

"VIRTUAL UNIT - what do you think?"

its a concept that has legs and w-a-a-a-a-y past due!

For practical purposes virtual units already exist. WDCU has members all over North America (maybe the world). As I recall dues are only a buck (much less than the MAL surcharge) and you can keep track of unit activities and vote online. Ditto the Four Corners Unit.

Cheers,

Why?

So why would I want to give $$$ to support a meeting or White tux event? To support old WBCCI activities that don't draw new members?????

I may be a little thick but I don't get it.
Now if you were asking for $$$ to support entertainment like the Eagles or some other band or big name entertainer then I'm in. But to fund a meeting or dinner, hell that's what my rally fees should cover.
