The March 1, 2008 Noon Luncheon at Fat Boys Restaurant in Mooresville was a great success! Our Club’s attendance was 54 including one guest and three new members. This appears to be our largest turn-out in recent history for a luncheon meeting. We were sorry to have missed so many people, but are thankful for the familiar and the new faces we shared lunch and talk with.
Bob Clark encouraged all members interested in upcoming rallies to start now arranging their reservations for the respective rallies. The exception is to wait until May 1st for Virginia Highland Haven Airstream Park as they are not open until then. If you want to join Carolinas Unit of NC for our Ocean Lakes Myrtle Beach rally in November please email Bob Clark as soon as possible to obtain one of the few remaining spots for this great rally location. The rates are only $31/night and Bob has the reservation sheets for our Club’s allotted spaces for the Ocean Lakes rally.
Rick Rorie presented a final draft of the flag design for the club’s vote, and the flag was unanimously approved for submission by Jim Cocke to Region 3 Leadership. Our Club will not plan to write or consider any orders until approval from WBCCI International Board. Ray Moser posed an excellent question on the purpose of the flag — this flag will, upon approval by WBCCI, become an optional flag for any member of Carolinas Unit to fly. Members of WBCCI should attend to the Flag requirements and etiquette presented in the WBCCI Blue Book (available on line and from your officers). Past officers could elect to fly their Past Officer flag or, like any member, could fly the Unit flag instead of a Past Officer flag.
