 How The WBCCI Region 10 Came To Be

1955:  The Wally Byam Caravan Club International was formed in July

1964:  With the growth of the Club and the increase in the numbers of Units, a decision was made in January 1964 to create seven (7) Area Regions throughout the North American Continent.  The names of the Area Regions referred to their geographical location.  The Northwest Regional Area included Units within the states of Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming.

1964 – 1967:  During this period, the Alaska, Alberta-Saskatchewan and British Columbia Units were formed.

1967:  The seven (7) Area Regions were terminated in July 1967 and 12 Regions were created.  The Northwest Regional area became Region 10 and included the states of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Yukon Territory.

1967 – 1976:  During this period of time, six (6) new Units were chartered within Region 10, bringing the total number of Units to 12. They were the North Cascade Washington, Inland Washington, Eastern Oregon, Oregon Rogue River and Western Oregon Units.

1976 – 1991:  Region 10 membership peaked in 1977 with 1779 members.  June 1990, Region 10 had 1107 members.

1991 – present:  Region 10 now has seven (7) Units (Alberta-Saskatchewan Canada, British Columbia Canada, Idaho, Montana, North Cascade Washington, Oregon & Washington) with a membership of 650.
