ALL RIGHT FORREST!
As and ex-military man, I too resent all this formality and fluff. We are a camping club for god sakes. Like the saying goes(your Airstream may be superior, but you are not) applies to the WBCCI.

What was I thinking ???

I visited the Airstream 'Mystic Springs Campground' outside of Pensacola, Fla today and was impressed with the people and the grounds. I expressed an interest in joining their Unit, but not in joining the International Organization again. They asked why I wouldn't be interested in the Int Club, and I told them of this new requirement, and that I am not interested in those kind of rules. They welcomed me to complete an application for membership and I met some great new airstreamers!

Maybe when the Int Org can't pay the power bill on the building in Jackson Center, they'll get the message.

Liked the "Tradition" link 2AIR, and it really made me think.

What it made me think was this: if the WBCCI mobilizes to defend Jackson Center against the combined forces of Mandalay, Fleetwood, and Jayco, get me a flag: I'm in. I'll even dig out my old BDU's for a day or two.

Short of that... I lost interest in that sort of pomp the day I got my DD214.

Tuxedo Installation

Our Unit held their Installation of Officers last Saturday. The choice between Hawaiian shirt and suit was easy, I didn't want to disrespect the members' tradition in our unit. The choice between tuxedo and suit was more difficult. The tux is fun to wear, I look damned good in it, and I never get to wear it. I chose the suit anyway. Tradition.

The tux would not have mocked the club's tradition, may have created fun memories for attendees, and I would have enjoyed it. It would not have harmed anyone or anything. And, in a way, I wouldn't mind having added to the 'conversation' about displaying formal clothing in a camping club's ceremonies.

Okay, okay, I know -- the difference is, I wasn't telling anyone else to wear one if I did. I would have made the choice for me only. Still I considered just doing it. You know, send the picture into Blue Beret and all that stuff.

Now I'll never know what it would have been like. Oh well, let's go make a cup of tea and forget what I was talking about . . . it wasn't memorable.
