Hey, I'm supposed to catch nuances when I'm low on nicotine (quit three months ago, but still ...) and caffeine?

In our family the morning pot of coffee is referred to as Life Giving Fluid. . .

Jerries newsletter

ACTIONS COMPLETED...
• On August 26, 2008 on behalf of the
International Executive Committee, I published
and distributed, “Presidents Comments on
WBCCI & Grievances” to the same individuals
for this ‘Review’. It was also posted on the
Club’s Web Site; Forums; 2020 Committee. It
was encouraging to see our Members providing
positive recommendations, comments, and facts
after this posting. What is unbelievable and
shocking are the unprovoked attacks on these
members by a very minority number of
Members. Is it no wonder our Members,
especially Club officers, are reluctant to make
comments on the forums?
• The International Executive Committee held a
meeting as a requirement of Article V in the
WBCCI Bylaws. A few WBCCI members have
asked me to overturn a decision of this
Executive Committee Meeting which would
violate the WBCCI Constitution and Bylaws
just because of a decision they did not like, even
to the point of threats and boycotts. My hope is
that in my next month’s ‘Review’ there will be a
positive outcome of this pending issue.

Gosh there is an unbelieavable and shocking amount of unprovoked attacks. It sounds like the same we have been hearing since the name change issue to the exact word. They have that memorized don't they? "A very minority" would that be the same vocal minority that did not want a name change or sobs in the club and now Bob and Leo exonerated? You know the ones that are only quantity and should be eliminated. But that doesn't sound harsh now does it? it's like forshadowing in Mac Beth something spooky feels like its going to happen.

I guess not renewing or attending the International is to the point of threats and boycotts. It sure sounds much more dramatic and malevolent when the IP speaks of protestors though, doesn't it? As is you did not have a right to criticize how well they perform their duties on your behalf and enlist and retain members or get the club back into the green. All of a sudden the goal is over 1500 Airstreams at the International? It's been dropping every year but they are thinking it might change? Why? Maybe that's how many they need to pay for what they will definitely be spending whether the members come or not, so that's a good way to choose a number to make a goal.

Honestly I have read no such attacks in those recent threads, have you? But it certainly sets the stage for heads to roll should they need to discipline any further. Bite your tongues, and be wary. Tread lightly for they carry a big stick. Gotta love 'em, who the heck else would you want to represent your interests in a fun club? Bless their hearts they have earned it. Ah to spend time in the golden years...silence is golden.

Internet users are entitled to Anonymity on the Internet, in fact there is case law on the issue.

Perhaps Mr. Larson wishes to inhibit that right.

Since Leo's charges were based on what he allegedly posted on the Internet. Jim Franklin may file a grievance if he thinks your violating the ethics in what you post.

Jerry should make it clear that any post will not be used to file any sort of a complaint against the poster.
Any suspicions about his motives aside, those with smallish children are often quite reluctant to reveal any information which may potentially assist a predator.
Like names and a way to track back to addresses.

The name thing is a non-starter.

WBCCI Is Worthless

Hello, the WBBCI and its management is worthless. An organization that chooses to take action against an individual who is simply exercising his First Amendment Right does not deserve to be in existance. The entire management structure needs to be purged of the brain dead individuals who choose to take action against a member who proffers facts they do not want or like to hear. These are exactly the type of people who should not be in any way involved in the management of any organization.

I can only speak for myself. The man was a marketing genius WAY ahead of his time.

He should be included in every university Marketing major's course work. His formation of the club garnered so much free publicity and helped create the iconic status that the Airstreams have today.

Just my opinion though....

Jim

My friend said last week at the campground, it's an RV, not a religion. She made me laugh too. It was so unexpected.

Oh yeah, Wally and Stella knew and and Pee Wee knows a lot about promotion and image! Good stuff. Can't hear and see enough of it. That's what keeps me in the club, it's history. Too bad the WBCCI chooses to keep the wrong parts of what is old, and not the essence of what made the vibrant years.

Wow!!!...I know there are kinks in the system but dam, these are more then kinks. These are weak links that need to be changed. I would give up my presidency of the Metro Detroit Unit, if it would help the old farts to get of there butts and see the world does need a change to stay alive. I do not think I will be renewing my membership when it comes due...Sorry WBCCI, you lose.

Yeah... but don't try to tell the WBCCI that.
They'll excommunicate you.


The nuns told me that means "burn in H-E-double hockey sticks forever"

Paula,

Actually, the elders of the WBCCI do not venerate Wally. To name just one example, they refused to seat Wally's nearest living relative, Dale (Pee Wee) Schwamborn as 4CU delegate at Bozeman because he did not have the correct class of membership. (His membership is honorary--you have to be a due-paying member to serve as a delegate.)

We know who the elders of the WBCCI worship, don't we. . .

If they aren't careful, the IBT will be asking, "For whom the bell tolls?" and the answer will be, "it tolls for the IBT!"

Unfortunately, the way the system works, you can't get rid of them.

As Henny Youngman would say, "take my IBT, please."

The IBT, "you can't live with them and you can't kill them."

You can get rid of them. Just refuse to pay the dues. The club fails and maybe a new club will reemerge. That's what I did after just being a member for one year. After listening to last years meetings in Georgia it was obvious the IBT hadn't a clue. And I could not justify the majority of my dues going to the IBT and not the local unit.
