It's the weekend of the IBT meeting and I've got my fingers crossed. Hopefully we will find out by Tuesday the decision from the IBT on our 4 Corners Unit charter. I personally want to thank all who have voiced their support for our efforts and am hopeful this will become an innovative unit within WBCCI.

Um.... probably a dumb question... If the FCU becomes an official unit in WBCCI, do you have to allow only WBCCI members at rallys. We'll be on our first one this spring and don't know if we'll "fit in". We're not usually group joiners.

thx

Mike

Think of FCU as "inclusive" in spirit and not "exclusive".

do you have to allow only WBCCI members at rallys

Hi Mike,
As one of the initial organizers of the FCU movement, I suggest you stop by and check us out.
If you don't care for us then don't come back. If you do like us, you are welcome to join us.
I don't see any problem either way.

Didn't mean to offend. The group of folks attending the rally seems a lot like us. I was just wondering if WBCCI approved status put restrictions on who can play with you all.

Theoretically yes. Insurance reasons as one excuse. Others are extremely important but don't seem to be acceptable to many on these forums.

Practically, it depends upon how and where the rally is conducted.

Brad,
I'm fine. We're looking forward to Cottonwood... just 90 min up the road. We've been planning a trip to Dead Horse Ranch. Donna and I have trailered a lot with horse trailers while in the Quarter Horse game - she was a trainer. We've been taking little trips around the state to get all of the essentials in order for trailer camping. The forum has been the best resource for "how to's".

Thanks for letting us tag along with you...

Mike

restrictions on who can play

Mike,
Sorry, perhaps I didn't express myself very well. What I meant was, you are in charge of what you would like to do. You are more than welcome to come. One of the underlying motiations for forming a new unit was wanting to get away from too many rules/restrictions, too much formality, etc. Sorry if my last post sounded unfriendly, it was not intended.

If the Charter is not approved, I say we adopt the suggestion that has been forwarded for photo rallies (rallys looks better to me, but I was never a strong speller), eg, someone says "let's gather at so-and-so on date such-and-such". (notwithstanding previous comments about liability, etc.) This is the right group of people and we ought not let something as [silly small inconsequential bureaucratic stiffling] get in the way of a like-minded getting together.

hi richard,

thanks for hosting this upcoming rally at dead horse. sorry about the weather this past weekend @ 29 palms in so. calif. 19, is pretty cold for us... great that we got such support from the arizona folks. you guys rock, and the californians hope that we can be there for you as well.

you know that check i sent you, could you hold on to it for an extra week or so? i'm a little short.

couple questions that i meant to ask you, but you know, as the offical twentynine palms rally greeter, the time just flew. who knew?

is there a dress code for the pot luck? as you know at twentynine palms, it was black tie and stictly enforced. may i lower the unit's standards and dress western? how do you feel about this?

who is the official greeter for this rally? i'd like to prepare a little something special.

sorry to be so full of questions.... i'll make this as brief as possible.

would you know where the nearest Naval Air Station is in regards to dead horse? i'm thinking of having my TV & AS forward deployed. say within 30 min.s or less, i'm not into a long drive. although i have use of a Hercules C130 so a short landing strip, either dirt or hard top would work in a pinch.

last question, at twentynine palms this last weekend we had organized a group for looting ancient indian burial grounds. anything close by? have you got someone working on this activity?

thanks in advance,

kevbo

kevbo,
You crack me up! BTW, you did not greet us at 29 Palms! I guess because of the weather your pilot was flying IFR (I Follow Roads) and caused you to miss some of the earlier arrivals.

Greeters will be my wife Jan and I, but mostly Jan.

The C130 thing is going to be a tough one. No runways to support such an operation in the area. Have you been HALO certified?

Pot Luck attire. It was great seeing everyone in black tie at the Palms, but this is Arizona! We tend to be a bit more kicked back on such things. The theme for the weekend is "It's Optional". Dress acordingly

Lootin. If you don't mind, I'll let you run with that one. Tuzigoot National Monument is just down the road from the park and should offer you what you seek..
Quote:
Tuzigoot is an ancient village or pueblo built by a culture known as the Sinagua. The pueblo consisted of 110 rooms including second and third story structures. The first buildings were built around A.D. 1000. The Sinagua were agriculturalists with trade connections that spanned hundreds of miles. The people left the area around 1400. The site is currently comprised of 42 acres.
