What's been done in the past?

Over on the WBCCI website, under International Rally, Hints For First Timers, paragraph 15, there is a discussion of what to wear. The suggestion is that we bring "Church Clothes". Am I to assume Church Clothes would be appropriate for more formal events such as installations etc.? I can only assume by "Church Clothes" the writer means coat and tie, even though many of us don't dress this way in the Summertime any longer. Does the new President, from year to year dictate or suggest what dress will be appropriate for his inaugural? As a newbie in WBCCI I need guidance.

A bit more concerning to me, is the fact that there are functions held within the club that not all members, whom undoubtly fund said functions, are not "invited" to.

Depends on your Church what "Church Clothes" you wear.

While I don't think tuxes are appropriate for a camping club event...this whole thing only applies to the IBT members particiapting in the ceremony. We're talking less than 25 people here folks...not the entire rally attendee list. It's the folks up on the stage....

I too think it's a step in the wrong direction...but it's not a deal-breaker in my book.

There are lots of dinners, events & gatherings that are invitation only at International: Unit Presidents Dinner, Region events, IntraClub events, Unit events, etc. - all are invitation only, not open to everybody and are at added cost per person to the rally fee. Maybe sometimes, the Unit/Region/IntraClub picks up the tab but the ones I have attended you pay your own way for your own meal.

This whole thread points out the many challenges WBCCI faces. Clearly transformation is needed or the organization will continue to die off as it's older ( governing ) members do. Remember, those in power never give it up willingly.
Maybe this organization needs to split into two factions. Those who need structure and formality. And, those who just want to get together with their camping friends and whoop it up.

No bingo for me.........Tom

I understand specfic region events, and other events you mentioned, may not be of particular interest to all, but the installation of the leadership of the entire club in private seems odd.

Makes one think, "What exactly are they up to in there?"

I have not yet attented an International, but intend to travel to the Region 6 rally in LA next month. We also plan to travel to Bozeman, provided we like what we see.

The installation ceremony is not private - it's open to all to attend. All members are invited - although in my estimation, less than 50% rally attendees do. Only those IBT members on stage are being asked to dress for the occasion.

Just like a Unit, IntraClub or Region event...I imagine there are IBT events that are private...I wouldn't know, I've not been invited. The installation ceremony is not one of the private ones though...I've been to three of them.

I see. Pardon the mistake on my part. I derived from an earlier post in this thread that not all members were "invited" to the installation of the IBT. Thank You for clearing up this entire situation.

No problem...sometimes these things take on a life of their own!
