sometimes it is interesting how things do not go as planned. Often you can think you are doing the right thing only to find you have been stabbed in the back.

Sometimes when we are looking at the tube and checking out the the movies, we come across a really, really bad one. We watch it because these movies are usually, unintentionally, funny. It's kind of relaxing and we can read the newspaper or a book at the same time. It is multitasking.

This disaster is not as funny, although it's a pretty bad production. For those of you with a history with the WBCCI, it is probably not funny at all. It is the never ending train wreck, or speaking about bad movies, "2012", but everybody dies.

It appears hard to predict what the WBCCI will do next because most of us aren't that devious or dishonest. Most of us try to live up to our word. But it appears the best way to understand the WBCCI is to think of the worst thing they can do next, double it and then expect something like that. It is not cynicism, it is reality.

But I hear the world is going to end in 2 1/2 hours, and if not, Dec. 21, 2012, so who cares?

Where is Bob? Oh he probably made a deal... Drat it all, and I had to be a naysayer. Oh well, perhaps we should reevaluate the regions one more time. I do believe the number of the Executive Committee remains whole though.

Drat! The world didn't end. That was our best chance of ending this thread.

Nope In WI

We had our Unit Spring Rally this weekend.

We voted NOPE, not going to support it.

WBCCI needs to expend this energy into making the club more progressive and the International Rally more appealing. Changing the Constitution...... not the way to do it according to our Unit.

Northern Illinois, (65 members) held our Spring Rally this weekend. Northern Illinois votes 88%, (57 votes) to not approve adopting the Revised Constitution as published. Twelve percent, of the members attending, voted to adopt the new Constitution. That would be 8 votes. After the election, the Region 5 president, who attended, said that result was similar to the other units rallies she had attended this spring. Region 5 has approximatively 300 members.

She is not attempt to sway the vote in any way but listened and helped provide some official printed copies of the Proposed Revised Constitution and copies of the Denver amendment to the present Constitution, allowing the delegates to review the Bylaws and void those that were unconstitutional or not in the best interest of the club. It was approved unanimously. We will have to have our president send our approval vote into Jackson Center.

She also provided copies of the Bylaws revision that will be voted on by the IBT and asked for our thoughts on it, so she could consider our wishes when she casts her vote.

The Region 3 proposal would allow the Region officers to be recycled though the offices if no one else steps forward. They would not be allowed to run for consecutive terms. This proposal was also unanimously approved. She thanked us for our input.

I don't know if Nova is having a spring meeting or a vote or a discussion about the new constitution of any kind. I have posted on the forum without reply! YIKES! I was hoping the newest internet based unit would be communicating and interacting often on the internet, but communications remain nonexistent for the most part. I was hoping for a WDCU or HOT or 4CU type of unit in my own locality, but rallies, meetings and communications are much more limited. If I remain a WBCCI member next year it will definitely be as a MAL. What news of other units? How are they voting? Are units working on revisions or choosing to vote the revision down cold or just failing to address the matter? I wonder what anyone gets for their $65.00 and rising for the International taxation without representation when units require little to nothing for the fun fellowship and adventure experience. Sooner or later members have begun refusing to fund the grandiose spending of the leadership and realizing the tether is only a means to fund the great American Tour for the retired elite supported by the average members' dues without commensurate value for themselves in return.

The Denver Motion, aka Forrest's Motion we learned has been sent out for all Units to read. Had a very nice Tin Can Tourist Rally over the weekend.

Time will tell

It will be fascinating to see if the “New Constitution” vote scheduled for this year’s delegates meeting at the International Rally will be held based on the information posted by “Nuvite-F” and the members representing the “Revision Committee”.

The representing Revision Committee member wrote on the May 19 (6:50am):

“Awaiting final approval on the form (actually a Worksheet) along with a few other items of great interest”

To then have Nuvite-F write at May 19 (7:26pm):

“Now suddenly we have the unofficial word that's all been thrown out, not gonna vote this year, and there is some new bunch of paperwork coming out”

Normally over the past eight months or so if “anyone” posted anything the Revision Committee did not think was 100% correct in their eyes, the members representing the Revision Committee members would have posted something in less than 2-4 hours along the lines of:

“That is mis-information”, “You are just being a naysayer”, “You don’t understand”, etc… etc… etc…

It’s now been slightly over three days since the above was posted with “NO” response from the Revision Committee members saying that it is “NOT TRUE” or “That’s not exactly correct”.

Looks like there is a very good chance either a couple of things have happened.

1. Those pushing it have figured out it’s a non-starter this year, so there’s a need to reel the hook back in and change/sweeten the bait for us fish.

2. Maybe Don S. was able to prove his point that this whole thing was done outside of the current WBCCI Constitution, thus making it illegal in accordance to the current set of Bylaws

3. They have figured out the way the Revision Committee has been representing itself has not gone over well with much of the membership and are now keeping the “DL” (Down Low)

With just under a month before many start heading to the great International Rally to cast their votes, it will be interesting to read the posts by the Revision Committee over the next 30 days.

Let’s just hope if the New Constitution is not voted on this year, they will take the lead from the MOHO issue and wait five years before bringing up the subject again. Or better yet, just pass the Forrest Amendment and then we won’t have to worry about re-writing the WBCCI Constitution in the first place.

Time will tell,

Or they have enough smoke

Could the real answer be that they have used up enough time so that the current IP can get out of office without a lawsuit? The thing has no chance and they know it, job completed lets move on to another waste of time......

Let me correct any misunderstanding that may exist here--I did not post any new information, just quoted an earlier post by Jim & Chris from Colorado. I have not heard anything whatsoever about this rumored change of direction from anywhere other than this forum.
