International Election

Monday, March 9th, 2009

The International club officers are elected at the International Rally in June each year.  The election takes place at the Delegates’ Meeting, at which, the Unit delegates vote the will of the unit’s members.  The unit members vote for the officers at a local unit rally and instruct their delegate how to vote.   Any proposed amendments to the International Constitution are also presented to the unit members at the business meeting and the delegate is instructed how to cast their ballots at the Delegates’ meeting at the International Rally.

March 7th Luncheon at White Pines State Park

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

Seventeen die-hard members came through driving rains to attend. Small group conversations centered about the upcoming camping season, the state of the economy, and how it is affecting the RV industry. Monaco, the country’s 4th largest RV manufacturer, declared bankruptcy this week. Fleetwood pulled out of the making travel trailers 3/12/09. This month, the Blue Beret reported Airstream lost 5 dealerships. Thor loaned Camping World $10 million and now some Camping World’s will be approved by Airstream to do some repairs.

Picturesque White Pines Lodge and Log Cabin Village were built as a CCC project during the last great 30’s depression. Torrents of water, causing rapids in the river ford near the park entrance, prevented us from exploring most of the park.
