OK, time for a compromise. I think this sums it up. Of course those who like wearing those funny hats may object but it's them that made me think of it.

Wally's Airstream Carnival Club International.

WACCI for short. Got to have that sticker....
I crack me up....

I fully concur that the club doesn't do enough for working/younger members. They could be the life blood of tomorrow. I'm sorry that you decided not stay a member, since only people like you who participate and try to bring about the changes necessary to meet your needs as well as others will the club survive.

Club Name Change

Changing the name of the club will not solve the clubs membership problems. The club of the future requires a continuation of the things that have made the club successful in the past, ie WE WERE A CARAVAN CLUB and now seem to be only a rally club which has caravan's. Most of all we must meet the needs of new/younger/working members. If we don't then as our present OLD members, ie 55 plus, pass on the club will become smaller and smaller.

I responded to this before, but to add, it is unfortinate that you decided not to renew, after apparently not attending a rally. There will never be activities for working parents with children if they never attend an event. Why schedule an activity if there is no demand, create the demand and then complain if it doesn't happen.

Billevans,
