WBCCI participation

Greetings Jack and John!

I understand and share your concern about the limited life of the WBCCI numbers, but there is another good reason for displaying the numbers as per the manual - - at least when attending the larger rallies or the International Rally. These numbers are critical in finding your rig in case of emergency - - medical or family. Without these numbers being prominently displayed where expected, emergency help could be delayed. The Scooter Patrol at the International Rally depends upon these numbers to find your rig for delivery of important messages, and these numbers would also be a big part of locating your rig in the event of a medical emergency or family emergency.

I have gotten in the habbit of replacing my numbers every other year as a part of the routine winterization process. I was reminded of the importance of these numbers at my first International when it was pointed out that one of my numbers was installed backwards - - it made my number look like 6E59 rather than 6359 - - a mistake on my part due to a fear of heights I had installed the 3 backward in my haste to get an unpleasant job done. My regular servicing dealer has taken care of the last two number changes when the winterization was completed.

Kevin

when wbcci pays for my clear coat i will post my numbers . my last trip to the ruths convinced me that i dont need anything posted on my coach skin. i have my wbcci no posted in my rear window. as for the international they assign your parking space and they know where you are parking. as for a flag i have never flown one and no one has said a word to me . the last international i attended not even a third of the units had flags flying. to make a long story short if you dont want to do something no one can make you do it . so dont worry be happy ...

Family Friendly?

Sorry, this may be a dumb question, but how family friendly is the WBCII and VAC? We have 3 kids all under 13, we all enjoy camping, and yes all 3 kids are nuts, absolutely nuts for A/S's and old trailers. That's what the kids do whenever we go anywhere is try to spot trailers in yards and stuff. Anyways we are curious as to whether it might be something we could partake in and be welcome or do we have to wait until we're retired and fit the stereotype? (no offense) How many of you actually travel with kids and what have your experiences been?

Thanks,

Jason

Kids and stuff

Greetings,
I am the one who started this thread and since has it carried on so long I thought that I might ring in here.

I am going to my first local Chapter rally this weekend.
We are taking our oldest son who is eight.

The reason we are taking him has lot to do with how receptive and friendly the people were at my first state rally which was the suject of this first post in this thread.

One thing I say very positively, the folks at the State Rally were VERY friendly.

The reason I started this thread was to gain some insight and or etiquette of attending a rally. Especially the Alcohol. We wanted to know if we were to expect the religous influence so strong that they would pressure us to be in their following, ( this did not happen, just trying to prevent it.) Kind of like the person that walks up to you in the parking lot and asks you to come to their church or listen to their take on religion. If you know what I mean.

We are already active in a church and we like it in small doses. Our son attends a private religous school and he enjoys all of the fun including the religous activities.

There are many opinions posted within this thread. I am going to follow the advice of the thread and attend another rally or three to feel it out real good.

So I say, ("gather up the kids and were goin' campin!" Go to a rally and have a good time and let the kids run with our kids and others and dont worry about being judged. The working class is steadily moving into the WBCCI and the rules and enviroment will evolve with the changing of the guard.

(sorry for the long wind),


Smily

I guess a better question would be, do the kids stay occupied? I'm not looking for someone to entertain them, but is there things the whole family can participate in, together? I've never been to a rally, so I have no idea what goes on or any activities that might happen, forgive my ignorance

Games for all

Yes there were games for the kids. The games for the adults are very simple games and the children are allowed to participate and compete amongst themselves if so desired.

I took my sons bicycle and he hung around the campground visiting others and doing that kid thing.

There were other children there to play with and they did just that.

We got to spend good quality time together going hiking and taking in some local sites.

I am by no means an authority on rallies but I think the kids should go along and make the best of it. I recommend bringing a game or two that your children can share with other kid campers.

I am certain that the rally would allow anyone to create and organize their own version of child occupational events.

As they say in the WBCCI. "This is your WBCCI".
