Thumbs up No close E. Tn. clubs, wanna start one?

Hi every one,
Live in Cosby (E. Tn.) and there are no clubs close by, even with Ripley's Aquarium right here in Gatlinburg, and I would love to get something set up locally with like quarterly meetings or something. Going to post an ad on Craigslist and see what I can come up with. Doing light research on it now but am very serious and want this to happen very badly. My little town does not have much in the way of plants or fish for serious enthusiasts.

If anyone on here is interested friend me on here or something and maybe we can work together to make this happen.

Hi, I'm interested. There is a local saltwater club, the East Tennessee Reef Club (ETRC: www.easttnreefclub.com), but nothing for FW/Planted. I don't have much time to dedicate to helping lead the organization, but would surely participate.

Ty mac, I appreciate that. There have been hardly any responses but I feel confident that we can get something going. I will be going to my lfs tomorrow and put out some flyers and things and see if that will do any good. I do have a Craigslist ad up and plan on doing something through Facebook as well as Yahoo groups and any other thing I can figure out to do. I personally know a few people that would attend but, for me, that's not enough. I want lots of members. I will send you updates whenever there are some from this forum.

Would be glad to have you, and would be awesome to have some web-design help!! I know very little, my wife knows a little more and actually setup a decent Myspace page, so any help would definitely be appreciated. I tried my hand at making a not-for-profit Facebook page and got lost before I could get the initial setup done Will probably get deleted as it is really bad, so maybe we can get together some day and try to get something set up on there. Don't forget to stop by the Yahoo group ETnAC and join there as this will most likely be the online meeting place for the future club. Oh, and lets post some things in here on each others pages and get our names out there!! When a member posts on your page be sure to go and return the favor. It will be appreciated.

Good idea, Tony my daughter is a great graphics designer and can make esialy nice website. I'm decent designer but my daughter's photoshop is on the professional level. (she's a digital media student and is one of the tops in her class). yes proud parent. A good website will help. Anything that can get the name out there. Probably eventually could get a chatroom also so all can join and discuss. I just posted some pics on the yahoo group. Excited.

The banner was awesome and am anxiously waiting on our new domain name and website. I am sure these things will help us accomplish what we intend to accomplish, thank you so much.
