This is probably the final straw in my decision to renew.

OK Ed. You have had your joke, now tell us what really is going on. This can't be true. From the just when you think you have heard it all department.

BTW this is my thrid attempt at a post. I deleated the fist two.

Any club that does not serve the members will either change or die. So this must be what the members want. I see decline followed by rebirth when new members take leadership.

I suggest alternative formal wear. Here is Estancia a nice set of Dickies coveralls would fit the bill. They're unisex too! Add a well broken in cowboy hat and boots and voila! It should also work in Bozeman.

You know maybe the Guys would wear the dresses and the gals wear the tux? Think that would get the message across?

All I can say is WOW!!! I find it hard to believe that the new president would do something like this at a time when the club is on thin ice. The last thing that our leaders should do is further separate themselves from the rank and file. Our new president must be on some type of strong medication to dream up something this arrogant. It is almost sadly comical.

I intend to remain a member of WBCCI, so that I can help foster change. If we can get the one member/one vote in place, the bozos will be out of office in short order.

Ed, do you have any confirmation of the actual contents of the email?
I have some comments, but would like to verify what it said, before I launch into a tirade, only to find out someone's leg is being severely pulled.

Good day everyone! Well this is just one of the reasons I am running for Regional Office as a 'Newbie'. Yes we have been members for only three years and when I see something that isn't working I will try and help fix it. Heck, I did not wear a tux at our Airstream Wedding!
