You could start a South Bay club and I would join since I live in San Pedro. There is no need to be disappointed, just be willing to put the time and work into what it takes. I am a member of SCAPE yet never attended a monthly meeting due to scheduling conflicts.
You could consider hosting a mini-meeting at your home and local SCAPE members could/would attend.
After 50 years I do a lot of things right, but still get things wrong
