The best story on the WBCCI International. Thanks so much 2air! More, please...well, a lot more? How much will the book cost! Anxious to hear about the experience at Silver Falls.
This is what WBCCI should value and protect. An important part of history. ...I think of all the oral histories that we missed with the first WBCCI members...And I think their pictures must be somewhere about...
Thanks for documenting this experience for all Airstreamers to enjoy. I like the 2air perspective.
Anita

This is a great thread 2air nice coverage you’re on a roll... So who is the health chic?.. Did they really kick her to the curb? Would have liked to have seen her flags....with flowers like that on the AS...I think the BC Buds flag would have been looked upon unfavorably by the 'management'. Likely Airstream for a Jolly Roger flag too..

hello beret watchers and wearers......

finally got a decent web connection,
so i can start to bring this thread to a conclusion....

really the sub-stories are THE stories
from my view at the international
and there are many many more that could be covered.....
but won't be.....
perhaps another year and
another rabbit hole.....

i did love the signs and variety of committees
that it apparently takes to make an international happen....

here is a sign/room with multiple committee functions.....
and apparently folks were racin' in so fast.....
they needed a speed limit?

cheers

the teen queens live on!

perhaps the most sane event,
at the international
IS the teen queen contest....

think about it,
years ago some anxious mothers....
needed something 2 keep the young girls occupied
and a way to keep an 'eye' on these same young girls.....
without being too obvious.....

so perhaps the teen queen contest was born?
2-4 hours each day of practice
rehersals
and adult supervision.....
shared my the moms.

i'm reminded of my youth camping....
when boy scouts
and girl scouts.....
were camped on opposite banks of the river.....
they thought it kept us appart...
when in reality the river became 'the' meeting place.....
remember?

so i did have several contestants for teen queen
ready and willing to pose wearing THE beret.....
but just as we were about to shoot pix....
the adult supervision appeared....
and wisked them away.....

i did manage however to catch the girls,
hanging with the boys......
on stage
and playing a game of coed ball.....
using a shoe for a bat
and a wad of socks.....
as the ball....

ya just can't keep the teens underwraps forever.....
thank goodness

2air'

Let me tell ya 'bout the birds and the bees
And the flowers and the trees
And the moon up above
And a thing called "Love"

Let me tell ya 'bout the stars in the sky
And a girl and a guy
And the way they could kiss
On a night like this

When I look into your big brown eyes
It's so very plain to see
That it's time you learned about the facts of life
Starting from A to Z

Let me tell ya 'bout the birds and the bees
And the flowers and the trees
And the moon up above
And a thing called "Love" (Yeah!)

When I look into your big brown eyes
It's so very plain to see
That it's time you learned about the facts of life
Starting from A to Z

Let me tell ya 'bout the birds and the bees
And the flowers and the trees
And the moon up above
And a thing called "Love"

Let me tell ya 'bout the birds and the bees
And the flowers and the trees
And the birds and the bees
And the flowers and the trees
'bout the birds and the bees....

there is a great thread goin'
on the silver falls rally
it was a fine time
with fine folks, food, dogs, beer and so on......

i'll post a comment or 2 in that thread soon......

but here is the international rally connection.....

we gathered at silver falls on saturday july 1
i had said my goodbyes to my best neighbors
in the 30 amp/dog/dirt road sections.......

by sunday afternoon,
at least 5 groups
had driven up 2 silver falls
and into the group campground.....
2 visit us......
jordandvm and his lady
were expected and natually arrived.....

so too did 2 cars of folks camped on exactly my row.....
in 30amp/dog/dirt......
out of 1100 airstreamers.
with only 20 or so on my row......
what are the odds?

this friendly couple were in an original bambi.....
and clearly members of the rbcci......
note the jewelry....he is an officer now!

he also plays in the wbcci band.....
a trombone player (they are the shifty ones)

he told us that
another band member
was flying the jolly rogers
like me......
and he was asked to take it down......
but not me......
perhaps my guard turkey......
kept the flag protocol committee.....
at bay.......

anyway these folks were absolutely fun.....

while the other car load of 'officals' that visited us......
wouldn't let me take a picture.....
so i've subbed a shot of my attack turkey....
in fact.....
3 of them,
wouldn't even get out of the car
they claimed to have wandered into our camping area....
by accident......yea right

perhaps they were taking down wb numbers for next year?

cheers
