What do you like about WBCCI?

I'm collecting some information to help with the PR for our club. What do you like about the WBCCI? I'll start: I love my Oregon Unit! I've never been part of a more diverse, fun, funny, friendly and supportive group of folks in my life. I also love the American history of the club, and carrying forward a small piece of Wally Byam's dream. You?

I like that our unit here in Georgia has been very welcoming, and is actively recruiting new members. The rally's are packed with activity. Most appealing is that the unit is looking forward with optimism and not simply coasting on the past.

I like the resources available in the membership. You need something, someone will have it. Need to gain knowledge in an area, the group will give it. Need help, more people will offer than you can possibly thank. This is such a diverse group with many many skills and they love to tell you where to go!

I like the great folks I've met in my 6 years. In my Unit, at the International, at the Florida State Rally, Region 3 Rallies, .....

People make it well worth the dues!

We're probably like most because we really enjoy the folks in our unit. We enjoy going to the rallys, visiting with everyone, the activities, meeting new friends, sharing ideas and experiences and going new places. IMHO the WBCCI part of it is secondary to the unit, but we've only been in the club a few years.

We thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the 4 Corners Unit. Without WBCCI we would never have had the opportunity to meet these special people. To us it is well worth the entry fee to get to meet so many great people. We also have met a ton of folks in the Pacific North West of OR, WA and BC . We can attest that membership has its advantages. So many fun things to participate in, so many caring people with a common love of camping, making new friends, and the single common denominator is an Airstream with WBCCI membership.

We have only been on one caravan and that was to Alaska in 08 but it was fantastic, I loved every minute of it. The leaders worked so hard to make sure everyone got the most from the trip. I also like that we have camped with several units when we travel and at every single one we were welcomed with open arms. We see a rally listed, make a call to see if it is ok to show up and everytime it was "absolutely, love to have you." Have enjoyed each and every one.

We are both still working, so the National Caravans aren't within reach, yet. We have now put together 5 Unit Caravans. We have a great time with great folks and see things we wouldn't otherwise see!

There really are opportunities of all sorts in the club!

It goes without saying, the people are great. I also love being a part of the entire Airstream nation. It is a special place. At rallies, take or leave what you want.
