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...
