Is anyone based in the 4 states area? I am in Joplin. It would be cool to have a break out group from this club. Perhaps we can carpool to club meetings and auctions in Kansas city?
I think it is a great idea to roadtrip to events. Things that are 4-6 hours make for great fishy conversation. We have taking a lot of excursions down near Joplin and other parts of Southern Missouri to go collecting fish. We go about every other year. Plus we often roadtrip to Rogers for the NWAAS events and the MASI events in St. Louis.
We'd be happy to place a section on our website where you could post Joplin events if you want.
But getting a nice forum is a huge blessing for sure. It's too bad everyone is so tied to facebook. It really hurts the communication for fish clubs. I use facebook all the time, but I prefer forums as it is much easier to find threads and specific topics on the forum.
