I was a new owner this past year and renewed my membership. Granted those national caravans are a little long and pricey for us still working stiffs. The MN unit has shorter rallys and caravans during our camping season April to Oct. (about 1 month). I am actually going to be leading a 3 day caravan next August. I figured if the organization is going to fit my needs I had to get in and lead. Please get a hold of me if you would like to discuss or get more info.
Joining WBCCI is the best move I have made in a long time. Like you, I actively participate actively in every organization I join. I am currently a trustee of the unit and I have voluntarily created a website
for the unit using my own free web space.
Granted, the big caravans are out of the reach of many still-working folks, but I will probably never take one of those long caravans. Out unit has 6 short rallys a year plus there is a region 9 rally. The average distance is probably 125 miles each way because Texas is a big place. Most of these rallys are 4 to 5 days and we charge only for the days in attendance; parking is ordinarily discounted and food is prorated.
The rally schedule is already posted for next year on our website
. It shouldn't be impossible for many still-working persons to schedule vacation time in order to participate.
Our unit won an outstanding unit award this year and I am proud that one of the rating factors was the website that I had created.
