How many interested to setup a planted aquarium club in Chicagoland?
I moved from Cali to Chicagoland earlier this year and has been looking forward to find out good interest and local clubs focused on aqascaping and planted tanks but have not been able to find a whole lot of activity at a group/club level over here, may be weather, economy, work pressure or whatever but that's my initial impression.
That said, I would like to meet up with local enthusiast in this hobby (and focused on planted tanks specifically) and see if we can setup a club here.
It is a big endeavor and I have no idea what to do, but I am thinking that we can probably meet up at a local pub or starbucks, talk thru it and see where it goes...baby steps you know. May be discuss our interests and experiences (planted tank and outside) and see what kind of mix we can make out of ourselves and how much we can commit ourselves towards setting up a club.
Any interested candidates? I am in nw suburbs and my work life is pretty eratic (including weekends) but I am willing to give it a try. If there are individuals out there, please PM me or reply to this post. I'll contact you and see what we can do.
