That is do able I would think. Someone should contact the Madison group and see what they think. Maybe they could be the southern group and we could create a new northern one? Hydrophtye (a Madisonian) is a part of it I believe.

How about a SW, a SE, and a N? With one big meeting/plant swap once a year for at least the SE and N, if Madison (SW) doesn't want to join?

If you decide to have your club in the Kenosha/Milwaukee area, I would not mind the drive from Gurnee, IL if I would be welcome? I would love to get more involved in the plant world to go along with my discus.

I want to know everything about aquarium plants and how take care of them from the experts opions.

Yeah, Gurnee's not too far away, maybe hour and a half at most. If it's convenient for you, why not?

And we most certainly are not experts, but we are learning Right now, we can only make the tiniest scratch in the surface.

I think we should shoot for about 25 members state wide before we can really get things going. How many do we have so far?

That's great that you guys are forming a union. How nice of your governor to allow that.

I'd like to dub this a politically neutral club, if you all don't mind. Means we stay out of it, no opinions one way or the other, no endorsement of political ideas/candidates/bills/etc. Fish and politics are simply separate. Agreement?

Any ideas on how to spread the idea of a club around?

^ Sorry! I'm not bashing you, but similar items would come up in the future anyhow, so better to address it now, and have 'an ounce of prevention'. I was meaning to say something about neutrality before; I should have already. Again, my apologies.

Jake, do you want me to ask on APC about whether Wisconsin wants a club? And maybe print out a small sheet with (the club's) email on it (leave it at fish stores) to see if people in WI would be interested in a club? (I think that no matter what we do, it'll be small to start, and it'll be easier to recruit if we actually have a club going on than take a sort of poll about whether people would be interested to join)

Sure! I am a member there as well, so I could probably help out. I am leaving TPT soon, so I will not be able to talk about this here. I agree that we will have to start small. Not sure how we are going to go about our first meeting if we are so spread apart. I know that I will not be able to drive far, as I don't have a car or a license. (Yet!)

Hey, welcome to TPT, DMent! Fancy meetin' you here

You just stick in ideas whenever. I'm a believer in bouncing ideas off one another until something works, and works well, and fresh input is a big help. Any rational ideas will be considered, logic helps, along with any useful tidbits of information (like right now, we're looking at legalities. You can suggest names too)
