Name That Unit...

While at the Rocky Mountain Vintage Airstream Club Rally in Creede, CO, I discussed our proposal to charter a new unit with Tom Collier, the incoming 3d VP of WBCCI. He was supportive but certain that the unit's name must include the name of a state. Sure enough, it's a bylaw:

Names of Units All names will be geographical in nature and will represent a geographical area other than a state. The official name of the Unit must also include the name of the State in which most of its members retain residence, but no Unit shall be assigned any exclusive territory.

Can we name it

After 4 states instead of just one?

But I cannot seem to make a viable word out of the four abbreviations.

How about the NewMCoAzKs

Looks like we bumped into each other Shari. Hi!

Yours sounds better than mine. There was one I thought we couldn't use....

The official name of the unit may include the state, but if you look at the rally listing in the Blue Beret, the names used there do not have the state included.

What happens if the demographics of the unit change over time and "most of the members" now reside in a different state than when the unit began, is it necessary to change the name or does it just apply on formation?

AZCOKANEMUTA - sounds like a Navajo or Hohokam name. All states represented and in alphabetical order. Still too much. How can you abbreviate a set of abbreviations?

Just so we don't get hung up on this requirement, how about;
NM & Greater SW Camping Unit

Just call it "The NM AIR Unit".
Then put blue numbers on your trailer that correspond to your Airstream Forums number as in:
http://www.airforums.com/forum...ber-25357.html

Ken Levan, you are AIR # 10224...it is on your profile page.

Four Corners Camping Unit

How 'bout the "New Aztahco" unit? Or "Newaz Tahco" unit, which suggests some frightening images.

The rule seems to recognize a difference between the unit name which "will be geographical in nature and will represent a geographical area other than a state" and "The official name of the Unit [which] must also include the name of the State in which most of its members retain residence..."

For the informal unit name, I like "Four Corners Camping Unit", or even briefer just the the "Four Corners Unit", which is geographical in nature and is an area other than a state. The "official name" can include, or add, the state name "New Mexcio" assuming you guys can rally a charter majority from there . So, it officially becomes the "New Mexico Four Corners Camping Unit", a mouthful that appears only in official documents.

The "d/c/a/" [doing camping as] name would be the shorter "Four Corners Camping Unit" (or "Four Corners Unit" for those who prefer meetings ) which succinctly says it all and is rich in possible variations: 4CCU, 4CU, 4(Cx2)U, The Square Campers, The 4Square Campers, the 4SquareU's, etc., etc.

"Southwest" is so vague and large that it becomes geographically nondistinct. "Four Corners" is geographically distinct and connotes the southwest to those in the know yet is unusual enough to rasie a question from those unfamiliar with that intersection which, upon explanation, again connotes the southwest but as a point instead of a blob.

Here's some raw material for designing a Unit Decal:



which seems to capture visually the goals of this proposed new unit.

Fred,

I like it, but I am still upset about you missing the Salem International.

Hi Bill:

Sorry to have missed meeting you there too, but it just wasn't in the fuel tank. A 2 days' long drive each way from Denver to spend 10 days hanging around for 4 days worth of events was too much expense and time away for this self-underemployed 'Streamer. So other than our just completed Rocky Mt. VAC Rally, its mostly virtural camping and on line rallying for me this year. I'll feel more adventurous and frisky when diesel drops from $3.29 a gallon.

Seems to me that the rules would allow "Great Southwest Desert region"

Yes you did, and I ponted out a few exceptions. In my opinion the rule needs to be changed.
