Do NOT, I repeat, DO NOT, stay at home! That stunning display of tuxedoship screams to be shared... I say wear it proudly!

And as for no response from the folks planning to wear the real ones, I don't think there will be one.

Has anyone else noticed that there are NO posts from a region or international officer on this forum? And on the WBCCI forum, only Dona, the IBT secretary posts. I've been waiting days for an official response to rally passes in Bozeman and have gotten 2 responses from other members. But nothing from our club officers.... We know they are told what to wear, now it appears they are told when (not) to speak.

You da ShacksMAN

Doug,

I see you are getting ready for our install rally in Oct. Did you get the email with the details from Stuart? It was his idea and he heading up the project.

18th International Rally

I'm posting two pictures of the Officer Installation from the 18th International Rally in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. The year, 1975.

Just picture thoughts of the meaning of the WBCCI installations of the past.

Yes, that would be funny. But mocking the IBT will only distance them from the body of the members even more than they are now. There would be an attitude of "they don't appreciate what we do enough to respect our installation ceremony so why should we respect their wishes for the club in the future." Maybe that is why they are so out of touch with the body of members now; maybe they have been dis'd in the past and feel burnt by the experience. Remember, some of these offices have taken 12-14 years to reach so if it happened in the past, those wounds may not have healed within the club.

It would be one thing if the IBT were asking all members to attend and wear dinner jackets and evening gowns, but they aren't. They are asking the IBT only to wear them to a closed event. The least the body of members can do is respect this one event for them and let them do what they collectively decide to do for their special ceremony and not make a big disrespectful deal about it! My only concern is if they are getting reimbursed for the tux rental and gown rentals. If not, then what's the harm. Installation of a new leadership team is a big deal and is a formal occasion for a club the size of the WBCCI. It just happens to be a camping club instead of another type of fraternal organization.

I guess it boils down ot who cares? Pee Wee showed that this is not the first time they have treated this as a formal event. I like to dress up also on the occasion, I took a tux (or a "smoking") to Brasil and Colombia.

Are the people that are belittling this even members? What has anyone here done to make this a better place, other then to complaIN THAT THE 35 DOLLAR A YEAR membership is to expensive? I guess all of the good will and volunteer spririt has no value to some posters. That is fine, but why do people waste there breath to bitch on an internet forum? It sounds and is, so petty.

Ok, my plane is leaving, I am new to teh WBCCI and will probably only be here for a year, but I hope to leave something in it better for my time.

Happy trails and se you in Mexico if I can swing it!

Michael

I've been a member for about 10 years. We have also been a member of the laison group to input ideas to improve the club, unit club officers, vintage club officer and all around active participants. One of the repeating concerns from new and existing members is the formality of certain club activities in today's casual world. Is it a major issue?? No, but an issue that can easily modified by our leadership. At last year's installation, Don Shafer toned down the dress from ultra formal by foregoing the tuxedos. I thought we were moving in the right direction! wrong.....

As for the cost of the tuxedos, I believe the officers provide their own. But I am not sure. And since there is NO participation in any forum from any officer, we can only guess who shoulders the cost. And since rally fees provide the facility for the fancy shindig and the "pre-glow" dinner, we are actually subsidizing this event.

I say if it's going to be formal, we all dress and have a grand old 1960's style night of dancing and cocktails. A nightclub atmosphere with tables and toned down lighting! Tables of hors d'oeuvrers, byob, and lets have a celebration!!

I can wear anything I want (as long as my wife says it's okay)

I can dance all night long (as long as my heart says it's okay)

I can party with the best of them (until my wife gets tired of me making a dang fool of myself and sends me to bed)

Yep, I can even complain about all the stuff I don't like on this here forum (until my wife sees it and then makes me take it all back so as she puts it people can live their lives the way they want to live them and not the way I think they should )

So, my new official spouse approved response to this thread is "let the IBT members wear the tux if they wish" and I, in turn, will wear what I think is appropriate (okay, what my wife thinks I should wear that's appropriate).

Drat, and I thought I was my own man (or that's what my wife's been telling me, anyway )

Barry
