I think that a really good thing can often be recognized by the fact that there's a group of attorneys intervening.

We continue to look forward to attending the 'someone that started something very special that we all LOVE' Birthday Bash. By any name, it'll be a great time. We appreciate the whole idea and especially the personal effort and sacrifices each of the hosts are investing.

Thanks,

Roy and Marie

You could call it the "the rhymes with Holly Siam Birthday Bash".

Regardless of what you name it, it sounds like it'll be a great time. I'm very envious of all who will be attending.

Now Rob, if you had named Bradon the name you wanted ( Wally Byam Baker) there would be no problem! You can certainly have a birthday bash for your own son.

Could Rob have his name legally changed? Then he could name the event after himself!

As the plan has always been... It will be a great time! The name and the website was only to show our support for a man of which we hold in great regard. Unfortunately he has been gone for nearly half a century and the folks left in charge are more interested in wielding their power than honoring the man who made it all possible. (sorry for the grumbling, Frank)

From the beginning this event has been out the people that will attend... and the people that wish they could attend... since we plan do do it again, bigger and better for 2011.

This will be the highlight of the summer for the Klohn family and we can't wait to share our enjoyment with all of you.

Go ahead and make it bigger

Guys, it's February. You're planning the rally in June. Why can't you enlarge it? If it won't fit on Rob's farm, then move it. It's five months away. No need to wait for 2011. If you want it bigger, do it now!

Heck, if you do that, I might even bring my spawn-of-the-devil AVION to it (said it was open to anyone with a shiny silver trailer...). I appreciate Wally too, ya know!

see ya 'round,

Name ???

How about ROZO Caravan Club ?? Maybe even "International" added.

Most of us would agree to the "KISS" principle.

Jim, If you were ever to come to Bakers Acres you would understand why we want to have it there. The three hundred mile view makes it so worth the sacrifice. The real issue in increasing the numbers is being able to deliver what we promise. If all goes well, 2011 will be much larger. Avions are very welcome by the way.

all the positive PMs and "thanks" have been very uplifting. Thank you all for your support.

If there is any interest, I will be guiding a fishing trip on the Chenango River. No canoes needed, we'll be driving to within 100 yards of the river at about 5 different fishing holes. These are good spots, too. I've spent 30 years fishing this river and I can (almost) guarantee success. Pike, walleye, and trout will be the targeted species but we may get into the carp as well. While I don't eat carp, there is nothing like fighting a 15 pound carp on a light trout rig!

Rats I'd like to have been able to attend ESPECIALLY if it offends someone at IBT that I do go to outside rallies. I am definitely going to sign up for Alumaplaoosa - and refrain from contributing to any financial success of the International.

You've asked that this thread not turn into a bashing of the WBCCI so I'll try to stay helpful

HOWEVER....

Is it possible that there might be a "misunderstanding" by current WBCCI leadership due to cerebral fossilization of decades long term exposure to IBT politics - and that the owners of AIRSTREAM INC. might have just as much a claim to use Wally's name, image, etc. as the WBCCI says it has?

A mere assertion that "we own Wally's name" doesn't mean that the WBCCI actually DOES own it... it means that they have paid someone with a law degree to write a letter. The WBCCI may have some right to the name and image, but clearly it's not exclusive. Airstream DOES use Wally's image, name and likeness in it's website, advertising, etc. Every book about Airstreams or silver trailers mentions Wally - and I'll have to check, but I don't think any of those authors got PERMISSION to use it from the WBCCI. I'd also say that PeeWee could equally well assert the right to use his relative's name in any rally he wanted to attend or support. I know PeeWee wants to see the WBCCI continue, and I sympathize. I even say I yearn to see leadership which wants to serve the MEMBERS rather than just suck every last dollar out of the treasury before they go for the long dirt nap. The letter, while too small to be read easily, is presumptuous on more than one level and shows the IBT's usual care and concern for it's membership's welfare and rights.

You know what, tomorrow I'm going to Hancock Fabrics and I'm going to buy some silver lame cloth, and make a six section silver beret (sectioned like a baseball cap). I'll use round silver sequins as decorative rivets to draw attention to the seams on the sections. Once I get a model I like I'll GIVE away the pattern, the directions and the "right" to make a riveted beret. Argosy owners could do one in cream and bronze without rivets.
