July 4th Parade, Bozeman, Unit Floats
 
If your unit is planning to enter a float in the 4th of July Parade at Bozeman, 2008, you might want to check out the rules that were sent to Unit Presidents for such a float. Rule #8 is very interesting.

Who are these people????

Jim,

Don't hold us in suspense, what is rule #8?

Since there will be a Color Guard with the Canadian, Mexican and US flags, there will be no US flags allowed on floats.:sad:

Just makes you want to enter a float, doesn't it?

Who are these people???:angry:

What are they thinking???:angry:


Now............Who's going to Bozeman???

Jim,

Well, you are correct, a very patriotic parade. I guess that Bozeman will be just a stop on the way from the Tetons and Yellowstone to Glacier. My US flag will fly proud in the VAC setion.

A 4th of July parade with only one US flag allowed? I have never heard of such a thing. Next they will be saying we can not wear red white and blue as our clothing theme. Whoever made this rule should be exiled.

Do I hear pirate flags fluttering ... ?

Hi Jim:

Happy New Year to you and Lynn! This new rule obviously is a subtle way of encouraging parade participants to fly on their floats the pirate flags that the WBCCI senior officers love so much. So happy Fourth of July .... AARRRRGGGGHHHHH!

Thanks Fred

Lynn and I will most likely spend July 4th on our front porch watching the parade in our little town of Walnut Grove, CA (700 people).

4th of July Parade in Boseman
 
This from an org. that doesn't allow POW or Military flags. What a suprise!

I don't believe there is such a rule, who in the world would not allow the American flag to be flown on a 4th of July floot?

I don't believe there are any people left by 4th of July. At the 2 past Internationals I have attended ia huge exodus empties out long before the end of the rally and our independence day. Good luck finding services, kind of like vacuuming up shop while you are still at the table eating.

No USA Flags on the 4th?????
 
All I can say is "What the H---?" First they only want us to follow the Blue Book flag rules, then they say no USA flags on the 4th, next they will tell me I'm not allowed to go to the 4th fireworks display!

I think every parade float should show up with all kinds of flags flying!

Me I'm going to Bozeman with my NEW 5 flag holder on the 68 flying a new range of flags every day! US, Canada, Mexico, WI, Past Presidents, VAC, WBCCI, Airstream, Packers, Cleveland Indians, POW-MIA, US Army, and what ever else I can find to fly. Come join me and fight "Flag Flying" WBCCI oppression! Its a MOVEMENT!

This whole thing sounds like a communist plot!

I still don't believe there is such a rule, however, if there is I'm not sure what it says about the wbcci ! This is America and the 4th of July stands for our independence and alot of what I believe in our country today. So, IF there is such a rule shame on our leaders. I will even go so far as to ask them to check their patritisium and count me out.

Ed Emerick 01-29-2008 07:48 PM

Another Bailer
 
Why is it when the WBCCI starts some kind of crap that people want to bail on the club? Is it just too hard to fight for what is right anymore?

Those of you that read this stuff about the WBCCI that seems just too crazy and run in the other direction need to help us. Stand and fight these nuts,(oh now I will get hate email because I called the leadership of the WBCCI "nuts")

but they are............................................... ..:brows:

Allen H 01-29-2008 07:57 PM

Ed, I think you have a good point, all my life I have fought for what I think is right. Are these guys worth the fight?

Ed Emerick 01-29-2008 08:11 PM

Fight
 
I think they are NOT worth fighting for, they ( the leadership that needs to go) but the club is worth fighting for. We need to take a stand and let them know that they can't keep doing stupid things. The leadership needs to be called out every time they do something dumb. I don't plan on going anywhere, but the leadership of the WBCCI needs to know that they can't keep doing these odd things and think that we are going to stand by and take it.

Join the WBCCI and change the future of the club.

Me, I am going to build a float with USA flags! (Why do I see an Animal House flash back?)

59 GlobTro 01-29-2008 08:14 PM

We want this flag!
 
This is the only guy in a beret that I ever really liked! Michael, can you make some flags like this????:wally:

OK, Ed you make a good point, I will start by protesting to my unit and region Pres. However, I still have a hard time believing ruke 8 is for real. I will check it out first.

Ed Emerick 01-29-2008 08:44 PM

The Fight is On!
 
Thanks, and I'll let my Region and Unit Pres know that the rule stinks as well.

I want one of those Wally flags too!

Jim Foster 01-29-2008 09:59 PM

To be clear.....

By all means. Check with your Unit President. He must have recieved a copy of the parade rules. Whether he read them or not is another issue. Our President read the rules and plans to print them in our next unit news letter.

Remember....Rule #8.....It is ONLY on 4th of July Parade floats that you may not fly the US flag. I know of no other time at the Bozeman Rally that it is not allowed.
However, it smells just the same as if the had prohibited the flag alltogether.

And Ed....You are right. It's not "the club". It's a few people at the top who do not appear to be too smart. It is they who must be fought and replaced. I hope that the membership is all made aware of this unpatriotic rule, and the names of those who came up with it.

Our unit plans no float in the parade, but if it did, you can bet your sweet Airstream it would have US flags on it. We, as other units, have X-Army, Marine, Air Force and Navy people. When this all comes out, I'm sure there will be more than a few upset people.
