Hello again Mack C. I searched the Local Chapter section again & the only Canadian Chapters I can find is the one that you guys keep going on about. The not so successful Ontario chapter.
I have another question that I did not find an answer to. You say that the members must meet once a year if not more. Instead of physically being together, could we possibly all meet via Skype, or a conference call. that way we could have a National Chapter. Then as we draw more attention & add more members, we can then branch off into local regional chapters as volume permits.
Any thoughts????
I know a few guys here in B.C. that "might" be interested, I can try & contact them & feel them out about forming a National Chapter.....Feedback anyone?

I wouldn't exactly call Windsor "The Canadian Tropics" Geographically speaking Point Pelee is more southern than you are. If you are talking weather wise, the lower mainland of B.C. especially the Fraser Valley, is warmer than anywhere in southern Ontario in the winter, or summer for that matter, & I think we have a few more palm trees than you do. I think that is why we are called "Lotus Land", or maybe its the people that live here...Never have found out for sure.

I have been a member for a year and would be interested in an Ontario chapter.

The problem is logistics. If you look at the member map, there are only 5 other members within an hour drive of me.Perhaps if more members used the map, we could see where some viable meetings would be.

There is no way we could do regular meetings as an Ontario chapter, but perhaps we could have some thing like sub chapters. I already travel for a couple of "almost monthly" meetings. But they are about 150-250km round trips, which is a lot of gas and a lot of driving time. I would definitely need something that is a little closer.
