Exclamation TBKP

These events are attended by folks who wish to be there!

Obviously, paying a fee to attend is a pretty good indication that these folks are looking forward to sitting down and meting new people.

I dont think that the WBCCI has EVER dragged someone who wished to be by theirselves to a WBCCI event. ( but I bet that all have been invited and welcomed)


Get real man!

funny thing: just came back from the rally in Burlington. We stayed for a couple of nights at a local campground, and met a couple of other streamers from new england. We told them how we were brand new Wally club members, and the discussion very quicky turned to the geriatric demographics of the wally club....pretty much the same conversation we're having here. So it must be a pretty wide-spread sentiment. LOL!! anyway, one guy I was talking to told me that the New England unit was now headed up by all younger folks....they don't get into the old-fashioned stuff...they just want to go camping. So, it may all depend on your local unit.

as far as the rally itself went...it was an interesting site. and yeah...almost ALL old folks. we stuck out like a sore thumb, pushing a baby carriage around. Baby Jack (10 weeks old) turned out to be quite an ice-breaker, though...lots of attention from all the grandparents. He was quite a hit.

I will say that everyone was very nice, and very friendly.

WBCCI participation

Greetings Chuck!

I concur with the statement that each local unit is unique, and it is those differences that can be directly related to membership satisfaction. One of the reasons that I continue my membership in the Wisconsin unit even after moving to Illinois is that their activities are spread out about the state so there is a tremendous variety of activities to choose from.

WBCCI-SCCU

Okay, I am going to go out on a limb and say..........

Come and join the South Carolina Coastal Unit!

Our unit is very diversified and a fun group of people who are very active in the WBCCI.

It sounds like some of the units are a little boring and I am sorry to hear that but you can ALL come to our unit and see how different it is.

I know that the "Fred's" would maybe not like to be louded out but I am fortunate to have two members in my unit that are very distinguised in Airstream circles and their spouses just the same.

Fred Bothman has restored more airstreams than most of us commoners on this forum, (no disrespect Andy R.) and the infamous "Phred Says" Fred Etttline who both hang out here once in awhile.

Those who spend a lot of time on this forum know of my participation in this site and I still can say.............

I AM PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF THE WBCCI!!!!!!!!!!!

Anniversary

Since this thread was generated on my experience at my first WBCCI event, I thought it would be good time to raise the subject again. This thread has been visited and replied to with many facets, opinion, and thoughts. It is best if reviewed from the beginning of the thread.

Well it has been a year since my first WBCCI event and I am going back again. The SC State Rally is next week and I am looking forward to welcoming the new members.

Come one come all and join the WBCCI.

Well, I had about 90 days since my last post to reconsider my thoughts on the subject....and I've concluded that I still haven't changed my mind on this one in any way. Plus, the new membeship that I got free will expire shortly and the new coach won't come with another freebie, so..........I suppose this is my stop.......

If the numbers are so offensive and you dislike the local club and the international WBCCI club WHY did you buy an Aitstream???

Maybe you would enjoy another brand.

Hurst,

I think you are confused. As far as I know the two are completely different subjects (owning an Airstream and belonging to an Airstream club).

My thought is that simply joining an Airstream club is not by any means a condition of owning an Airstream.

To me there is a heck of a lot more to owning an Airstream then joining "a club" none of which I think I need to qualify here.....

Eric,
Why not come to the International Airstream Rally in Lansing, MI in July 2004? And check out all the Airstreams with numbers. Some old , some new, and some on top of old numbers.

Membership in WBCCI provides access to many years of Airstreaming and RV experience.

We bought our Airstream because we liked the trailer. At the time we didn't even know Wally's club was still alive.....actually I am not certain they are "alive" here in southern AZ....the unit was dissolved just this last year.

We were sort of surprised to read in the BLUE BERET of the activities--caravans and rallys that are held. These activities don't fit in with our schedule and travel habits .

Please do not tell me that we should not have bought an Airstream.....am already a little discouraged with the loss of value blue book wise.....however, the State of AZ seems to value my trailer highly as referenced by my licensing fees. AND we like our Airstream.

Hurst,

I'll really think about it. The next midwest rally and my personal vacation time might all fit into that date and I might give it the WBCCI another look see if it fits into the overall game plan.

The numbers aren't really my main issue with WBCCI....

Regards,

Eric
