    Great point, when I first started I felt the same way. It took me a really long time to get the courage to make it to my first meeting but once I did I was able to go to more and meet more people, and from that I have realized there are a lot of great people in the club.

    I am actually having a meeting (first one at my house,kind of nervous to see how it goes actually) in big lake on march 5th, which is fairly close to you. If you are nervous like me I would be more than willing to meet you somewhere publicly (or you could stop by and take a look at the tank without a bunch of other people) next weekend or sometime this week, we could talk and then if you were to come to my meeting you would at least know one person?

    This offer goes out to anyone who would like to take me up on it, as I know how tough it can be to get to that first meeting.

    Thank you that is very kind of you. I have been thinking about coming to your meeting since it is close compared to most of the others. Just getting a kind of personal invite makes me feel alot more welcome and as the date comes closer I can see if I can fit it around my work schedule.

    1st meetings can be intimidating, I totally remember my 1st meeting and understand your feelings. That's partly why we do the round the room so that people can put faces to names and get a conversation going.

    As far as meetings at stores - our LFS are welcome to host a meeting - the store has to sign up to host though.

    It's pretty hard for me to make a meeting, so I did the supporter option. Does that make me a member or just give me access to the classifieds? Also as a supported am I eligible for contests and giveaways? Those usually say members, so I wasn't sure. Thanks in advance for clarification. So far just having access to the classifies I've been able to score a few things at good prices and meet a couple other folks too.

    A member is someone who attended a meeting, you are a supporter. Basically the same rights in the club except voting at the business meeting. And yes, you are eligible for any giveaway or contest the club puts on.

    With the new change to the forum the subscription / supporter location has slightly changed.

    Click your User Name in the upper right corner.
    Then Account Upgrades

    Then you can choose 1 year - $30 or 2 years - $50.

    Same question. Papypal says my money was sent. How long does it take for supporter status to become acknowledged and to get access?

    Just sent in my $50 for a supporter. Never know when I would be able to make a meeting but I will still do my best. On my way to getting back into the hobby. Can't wait to start.

    Thank you admins for keeping an eye out for members that have paid but not been updated while y'all figure out why they are not auto updated after paying.

    Members - if you paid for a membership but still cannot see the classifieds forums - please post here

    On a side, I remember waiting to host a meeting for years... that was a mistake! Hosting is the best.
