This would be great! I'm always looking for a local club. If you think you want to get something started you should check out MASI, the local aquarium club. I been in it for a while and it is great! They have a HAP program where you can earn points to get awards. There is also auction and shows. Here is a link http://www.missouriaquariumsociety.com/
. There is a big handful of plant collector in the club.
