TAC - Take The High Road

To All TAC Members:

Now that TAC has been formed I believe that it is time for us to take the high road and stop bashing the WBCCI.

The two clubs have different purposes. One is a camping club (TAC) and the other is a caravan / retirement club (WBCCI). Many threads have stated what Airstreamers like or don't like about the WBCCI. Those of us in the WBCCI will determine whether the value of continuing our membership in the WBCCI is worth the dues.

Our energies as TAC members should be focused on making TAC a fun camping club. We have a "clean sheet of paper" as this club is starting from scratch. Let the WBCCI do its thing and don't focus on it. Our purpose shouldn't be that of being an anti-WBCCI club but it should be that of being the most fun Airstream camping club. Let's not expend our energies on what or what not the WBCCI is doing but on what we want TAC to be doing.

TAC offers us the opportunity to be in on the ground floor of something new and exciting involving our Airstreams. There is always more positive energy and satisfaction in creating something than in destroying something.

Let's take the high road.

Hard to argue with that, although I am sure someone will.

I don't know anything about the WBCCI, but I do agree with Bluebird.
TAC is of itself and not anything else. I am proud to be a member of TAC.
I love to camp, travel, meet new and different people who share a common interest;
camping, Airstreams, and being social.
OK I'll get off the soap box now

Well put Dave. I don't think anybody is "bashing" the WBCCI or any of it's constituent units although many postings have been highly critical (and in my opinion, justifiably so) of some of the actions of the WBCCI's highest level of management, the IBT.

On a personal level I would love to become a member of my local area Unit as I understand they are a great group of people but do not see any benefits to my joining the main club and finance the IBT's losses and "stipends" in the bargain. Besides there's nothing that says you can't be a member and support both clubs if that's what you want to do.

TAC is a new entity and hopefully will be devoid of all the political nonsense and posturing that is plaguing the original club. As far as I am concerned TAC can be a run as a "benevolent dictatorship" (with emphasis on the first word). It works.

Rob, Frank and the others who have declared their independence and set up this new organization are to be commended and supported in their efforts. I am very proud to be TAC VT-1 and am looking forward to participating in TAC activities as much as time will allow.

See you round the campfire.

I really think BlueBird is RITE, in fact I personally think that any mention of those 5 letters in any TAC thread are inappropriate. Let's do our own thing and let them do thiers and never the twain shall meet. I love this group all ready.
