I've never met Forrest nor Patrice (offline) and more than likely will never have that honor. As others have said - what a sad loss.

Will the power hungry big guys at the top of the WBCCI notice his departure, or care at all? Silly question. Just one less well educated moderate voice advocating for change within the Club - to the advantage of members. Simply put, this huge loss to our Club only amounts to one less voice for them to keep on their lawyer's damn warning list. Butt - I do firmly do believe that "what goes around comes around". It may take some time, but one day their comeuppance will smash their inflated egos.

Rant is now over, for now.

I love that old time rock & roll.

Wow, it seems like there is so much that I as a simple WBCCI member just simply do not know about and/or understand. A lot of the BS I do hear about reminds me so much of the Masonic infighting I have been dealing with for years. Generally, it comes down to people want the grandeur and respect they feel everyone before them had... but oftentimes don't realize that times have changed and the current membership (younger and not taken with how things were done before) doesn't care for the same things.

Anyway, I love my Airstream moho, I love my family, I love my country, and I just want to enjoy all of them together as much as I can....

Will the WBCCI help me do that? I don't know after looking at the schedule for the upcoming Int'l Rally.

Unhappy Shame on Me

So far as I know I am the only Rick Davis in the club.
There was another one here in Jamestown and it did get interesting when he died a few years ago
Sorry Rick, I certainly stand corrected. (and a little embarrassed).
I thought that Past Prez Shari Davis' hub Rod had also been prez and I mistakenly also mixed the name Rick & Rod. (or is it Rob?)
If all that wasn't bad enough I violated my self imposed rule to not again comment on anything Wally-club or it's offsprings' (VAC) since I do not belong to either.

Wow! An independent VAC would be great. Like minded individuals doing what they love without pomp and circumstance. Can anyone imagine an international rally parking scheme with SOB's in the mix -two armed camps. I still get mad about last years Gillette International VAC parking/parade joke. VAC INDEPENDENCE NOW.
