President's Corner

As the November issue arrives, many of us are completing our Airstream camping season. Rigs in Canada and the northern portion of the U.S. are getting ready for winter storage. We look back on a busy season of travel, rallies, and caravans with fond memories. We hope each of you had a memorable camping season with Airstream friends.

However, many people living in the north travel south (called “snow birds”) to places like Florida, Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and California and spend the winter in their Airstreams. I want to remind you to take a look at the Airstream calendar in the Blue Beret for the many rallies and events that are provided by our southern clubs/units. They occur all winter long.

In January, we will conduct our Mid-Winter IBT in Robertsdale, AL on January 21-25, 2019. Robertsdale is close to the Gulf Coast; therefore there is a lot to see and do in the area. The deadline for registration is December 15, 2018.

One last thing to consider – “Have I paid my dues for 2019?” If you have already renewed your membership, thank you. If not, the preferable way to pay is via the WBCCI website: www.wbcci.org. Click on the “Renew Online Today” button. This link will go directly to the renewal form. You will want to register/renew soon to make sure your name appears in the January 2019 WBCCI Membership Directory.

As this year comes to an end, Karen and I wish each of you to have a wonderful holiday season. We hope you all have time to enjoy the many blessings we have with families and friends.
