Sorry fishpond, got distracted in that last post and didn't get the chance to tell you about the club! It is the East Tennessee Aquatic Club, of which I am President and Founder, and we concentrate on freshwater fish-keeping. We are, of course, an online community and regularly get together through our website as well as our forums and chatroom. This is our place to share and talk about our hobby, seek advice for our problems through research and/or experiences, and to also share our experiences with other like-minded hobbyists. We also will be doing face to face meetings in the East Tennessee area, where we will also have a swap-n-shop. The meetings have not started yet due to our club being so new, but I am working on starting them up really soon. We have grown tremendously since our inception a few months ago, and I can see some really great things happening in the freshwater hobby here in East Tennessee and I am proud to be a part of it.
The $10 registration fee is for 1 year, and is also a limited-time offer so it will not last forever. This fee gives you access to our online community and frees you to browse our website for information and to post about you own experiences. You will also gain access to our online contests and/or events, and also to our club meetings and swap-n-shops.
Hope this helps, and hope to see you over there before this limited-time offer has ended.
Thanks and have a good day.
As far as the trading goes, I ship in a small flat-rate box but could never fill one up right now. Maybe in a week or so, you never know. As soon as I do I will pm you and let you know what I have and we'll go from there. We could meet somewhere to exchange stuff, but it would probably be cheaper to mail a package. A small flat-rate is only $5 and neither of us could drive cheaper than that, so I think it would be cheaper that way.
