Good Sam has over one million members and up to 4,000 attend their big rally. Therefore the cost of entertainment is spread over a much larger number of participants and the cost per participant is lower. There is no mystery in those calculations. If we could get our attendance at the International back to 3,000+, like it was years ago, we could afford better entertainment and our per member rally cost could be kept lower. With the diminished attractiveness (to our average member) of the International we will not accomplish this goal. We only had 11% of our members attend the Gillette rally.

Lets see if I got this right. Good Sam with 4,000 attendees at a rally can afford good entertainment. The Birthday Bash with 84 attending rigs can afford entertainment, Antsey McClain, that our 1st VPs wife says is too expensive. Am I missing something here?

Someone had better get off the dime and do something soon. The Bash is scheduled for the same time as the International next year. At a lesser cost and better entertainment, great food, and cut off jeans where are you going to be on the 4th of July?

This Club, in its down hill run, has reached the military crest of the hill. That means the descent gets steeper from here on.

1st vice president's wife is setting financial priorities and making entertainment decisions for the club. We have a million bucks in the bank drawing less than 1% interest, but she thinks investing in good entertainment is not worth it to her. I am glad we have so many good experienced successful business people determining what is best for the club. (sarcasm)

And we know that most attendees are either 4 weeks or 4 days perhaps. Inequity? Yeah!!! Not only can we expect to pay more for electricity that we didn't want but we can fund all the perks that do not trickle down to mere members and still forego quality entertainment for more generic geriatric entertainment of trios, comedians spouting senior humor, and gospel singers. Aside from the Vintage Open House there is not much of a draw for anyone who isn't on the special receiving end of galas and tours and hospitality gifts and free parking for a month.

We did have to bootleg our own refreshments

A members share idea implimented by the Communication Liason Committee Chair along with meeting simulcasts. That was an action committee. Hope we will see more ideas implimented in the future.

Professional Event Planner- Meaning:

“Event planners organize a party, retreat, sales conference and meetings Event planners have the ability to organize events that will leave the invited guests happy and satisfied”


FYI- The WBCCI had just that at one time in the not so distant past.

Anyone know who??

I’ll give you a hint, their wife keeps things running.

First one that gets it, I’ll pay the "Unit" dues to become a WDCU member or Associate Member. (It’s only a buck)

Funny when that person went away, trouble started with the International Rally.

Hey that's not fair, you ask the question when I am out celebrating our son and daughter in law's anniversary and also finding out that their first child will be a boy. Give me a chance next time, I know the answer.

We shared our family oriented fun and they shared their music and their company. Grant was a big hit with the teens girls and Ansty spread his good cheer through out the day besides the music around the campfire... BTW, he is a fantastic artist in addition to his music.

I can't say we made $120 a trailer on the Bash... heck, we only charged about that for the whole event including full breakfast every morning, a great steak dinner on Saturday, Fireworks that rivaled any local displays and of course Antsy McClain.

One area of change needed is communication to that end, I would invite and welcome meaningful discussions here (or Pm or email) with your ideas or concerns.
Hi, Bob,

I thought it might be useful to bump this thread, which gives some background of your involvement with the Constitution and Bylaws Committee (CBL).

The report of the CBL is absent from the Mid-Winter IBT Agenda published on the WBCCI web site. Given its importance, in view of the wholesale rewriting of the Bylaws—and since you yourself emphasize the need for communication above—I wonder if you plan to publish the CBL report before the Mid Winter IBT?

Section 7 of the Bylaws requires standing committees, of which CBL is one, to provide semiannual reports no later than May 1 (for the International) and December 1 (for the Mid-Winter IBT).

Quote:
All standing committee chairmen shall file a half-yearly report to Headquarters for presentation to the IBT. The deadline shall be no later than December 1 and May 1 of each year.
Or does the CBL just re-write the Bylaws, not comply with them?
.
