Trying to find some info on joining WBCCI myself. I have owned my 3 Vintage Airstreams for about 5 years now. I am thinking about a trip to Top of Georgia which requires a membership with WBCCI which I I had beem considering anyway and to use my Pensacola unit. Question I have is the year membership from when I join and send in my fees or by a date set by the club?

Membership is for the year and ends on December 31st. If you join after the 1st of July your membership is good for the following year. Joining now you would be paid up until the end of 2012.

Thank you Richard. Every penny counts these days so knowing that makes me feel better about getting things started sooner rather than later.

I'm glad this thread popped up again. I posted in #11 that we would try it for a year and see how it went. That year is up and we have renewed our membership. I believe we (or at least part of our family) attended every rally held by the Georgia Unit with the exception of the "Buddy Rally". The people we met at the unit level have been great. Our children (now 11 and 13) have been warmly welcomed. The unit is also growing and very active in recruiting new members. Th leadership realizes that a healthy mix of members is important to the club.

The rally this past weekend found just my 11 year old daughter and myself there from our family. It is great for me as a parent to know that she can run freely through the park when I am involved in something else, and all of the other members willingly look out for her. She spent yesterday afternoon hanging around the fire pit eating smore's with the other members while I got the trailer ready to pull out. She also said she challenged our new First Vice President to Ping Pong and won. That made her day!

I am confident that even if the dire predictions regarding International WBCCI come to pass the Georgia Unit of it will continue, and the Top of Georgia campground will still be a great place to be.

Our experience has shown this to be money well spent.

Back After a 5 Year Hiatus

Five years ago, we grew tired of the politics and me losing too much sleep trying to cope with the organizational dynamics at the unit level. We sold our Airstreams, sold the Airstream Haven, and started taking Caribbean cruises instead.
Well, we are back.
It turns out, we had given up more than we gained.
The two other volunteer boards I joined had politics and organizational dysfunction as tiresome as WBCCI.
So, we returned to WBCCI with the goal of enjoying the myriad benefits of belonging by avoiding the politics.
We hope to attain these goals by being hard-working rally supporters.
So, far we have really enjoyed the rallies.
It's great to be back.
