I just had a minute to set and read what you wrote. I respect your position and I will discuss this with you in person next week. I don't have a local unit.I cannot in good conscience support a unit half way across the country. So I will remain doing what we are doing.CAMPING, with no dues or fees to worry about.
See ya the 31st.

Good Luck
Grtwht,

Glad that you are finding the forums helpful. I wonder if you saw this thread a little ways down the page http://www.airforums.com/forums/f286...t-53777-2.html

Sounds like the Kentucky Unit is quite active--their current Unit president just joined AirForums to help out someone with questions about the unit.

They also have a very active web site at Kentucky

See you down the road,
Nuvi

Oh ?
Where did you learn that?
IMHO that is wrong and misinformative. I do not have the constitution at hand in this location but years of precedent have made the above statement false even if the actual amendment was so limited.
I am always ready to learn though so please explain.

I do certainly agree that there are no 1st amendment rights to allow or protect speech on a private stage such as this forum.

on EDIT:
OK I found it in my desk drawer after all
1st Amendment to US Constitution
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Laura - While I like your saying, another, similar saying from the 1960's says "If your not part of the solution, you are a part of the problem" .

I like both, and thanks for your approach to effecting change within the Club .

So Ralph had his children very late in life is what you are saying?????

Good for you Laura for stepping up and doing what you can to help move the club through some difficult times. With enough people willing to get involved and nudge and cajole the club onto a new path there's a good chance it will come out of this current situation stronger and more attuned to what todays Airstreamers want in a club.

Take care,
Barry

Laura,

This is the only thread I have read in this grouping. After meeting you at Madison, and enjoying a few rounds of "Pee Wee Killers", I'm glad to see someone that is just starting out in the WBCCI and the Airstream World that has the wisdom that you have.

Keep on Airstreaming, keep on believing.

Best,

Pee Wee

Thank You Dale! It was great to meet you and have the chance to listen to your stories of your many trips. It means so much to me that everyone....well almost everyone supports me and my feelings on the club. Your mom did an outstanding job developing this club! I hope we can keep her hardwork and vision alive!

Leo, how did you miss it? Tim was the one making them, they did a toll on all of us one night!

It wasn't a Pee Wee Killer, it was a Purple Assassin and I am happy to report that I did not Kill Pee Wee (but I was worried I may have come close with the first one). The joke started that I killed Pee Wee by alcohol poisoning! Good thing he built up his tolerance levels enough to come back the next night for another sample.

Pee Wee - I'll shake one up for you any time! You know how to find me. Cheers...

I don't know if the WBCCI forum site is having a hiccup or if I have been hit! If I am not a registered member and have never made a post how and why is my IP address banned? Or am I just getting schizo???

Carol,

Maybe your reputation precedes you

Hard to make sense of a lot of things over there.

You can say that again!

What I wonder is, was Charlie a willing accomplice in Greg's takeover of the site, or was he simply taken in?

Good question! Charlie seems to be a willing participant.

I've asked to be removed from the forum... I got sick of Greg (Cortez - Super administrator) using his moderation powers to manipulate the forum content to conceal that he has a commercial interest in links concealed as forum feature buttons all over the site.

That forum is in no way an official forum operated for the benefit of the club members. It's just a dictator with an agenda... given total control so that the WBCCI could save a few bucks.

Oh the agony of it all...................

Me too. I have been blocked from the site....presumably because I commented on my low regard for the administration.....and his commercial affiliation being used on the site. BoooooHoooo.

You just joined the banned? I wonder how many WBCCI banned members there are now? That certainly appears counterproductive to member retention or recruitment.

Thumbs down

Their trick is that in the user agreement they have a clause stating that any challenge of a moderator is to be done off the forum via PM. They are using this to delete posts when you post a comment that conflicts with one posted by the moderator. This allows Cortez... the "super admin" and concealed commercial vendor to post any misinformation or commercial links he wants. If you point that out, your post gets deleted. The whole site just serves as his own commercial propaganda site and Charlie Burke is backing him up on it.

I have been a registered user on the WBCCI Forums for several weeks now. I look at it daily and have posted a number of times. I'm keeping an open mind about it, but it is moving very slowly, and is kind of a snoozer due to lack of participation. The WBCCI Forum averages only about 5 posts per day.

Even though I am quite active on Airforums, they haven't banned me or anything there, and I use the same screen name on both.

There was a thread recently on the WBCCI Forum about the creation of a Cyber Unit in the club. it got a few posts, then died from lack of interest. If that thread had been here, there would have been 500 posts to it.

Most of the posts on the WBCCI Forum are by a core group of about a half dozen people. If they can't generate more interest, it will quitely pass into history.
