WBCCI dress code change?

Can't stand the thought of a red sportscoat?

Refuse to wear a blue beret?

The WBCCI website now offers WBCCI Polo shirts and baseball caps.

Some say "No big deal."

Some say "The modernization has begun."

Others say "Where's the rasta beret!"

By the masses wearing Polos and ball caps to the International and rallies the traditional uniform and formality of the club that so many find offputting is relaxed. Clearly this is not the solution to all of the problems but it's a step.

This sounds much more like a camping club.

Everything starts with that first step forward. This is good.

Beret??

Funny you can't even buy a Blue Beret on the WBCCI store site! Just a standard baseball cap!

Not on the clothing part but elsewhere you can.

Dress like a camping club and people will act like it's a camping club.

Sounds great! As mentioned a positive step to hopefully dress down the officers and not because membership needed dressing up! (Just kidding) Good to see change coming.

Flip flops sometime not the best

Flip flops are ok for some places but sneakers might be better for camping in tall grass. I just noticed this warning about the Walmart brand which some people are alergic to. They had a recall on those in the stores but alot got out.

I just want to point out - in all fairness, I have never seen anyone dressed formally at a rally. All of the WB rallys I have been to have been very friendly casual affairs.

who says they changed the "code"? just because they're selling polo shirts doesn't mean anything, other than "you can buy a polo shirt".

(though, I agree...they should; just sayin, I don't think they have).

I agree with you Chuck, I'm not convinced that the dress code for Interational and Region Officers has changed. I think what is available on the WBBCI website is just stuff members can purchase to display their club pride.

The NEU has an online club store too: NEU2007Store

Here is where New England Unit members can purchase items with our new NEU logo. Our members get to display their unit pride and the NEU gets a dollar or two per purchase.

When in office and at all WBCCI functions that are holding business meeting the Executives that held the "status" of yesteryear in high regard "dressed up".

This is not an unusual occurrence in many National and International Organizations.

But society changes and is changing - everything is slacker less ridged but for reasons. Practicality and expense being the important factors. But ridicule also plays an important role in change

Seriously fashion has changed. Back in the day - a tie and jacket were fashionable - as was smoking.

In the sporting world all wear uniforms to identify your "team" - when taking office - it is nice to see your officers - so that you can target them. For questions and compliments that is.....

But as I got further into the Club - it was pretty easy to see who the officers are - They are usually the ones in the best rally parking spots up front and with the most flags - and quite possibly the best looking trailers - well that is what I noticed at the OU.

All about IMAGE - but what can an IMAGE do to grow the Club??????

Losen the tie - roll up the sleeves and take the wool beret off during the summer to let the brain breath a bit and let that innovative progressive thinking in.

Hey if any one wants to give their blue Beret away I'll take it....

So I can wear it at my very first International Rally during the Concourse Judging. Either standing in front of my nicely restored vintage Trailer or my brand new Airstream paying respects to its history...
