I am chairman of one here in Ireland and I love it. You can make friends and learn so much. We meet once a week but I know most clubs starting out only meet once a month for a meeting or training evening and once or twice a month for outings.
It is just a thought and was it to happen, I would love to join and maybe pass on some of my limited knowledge. I am sure in these times some bar would give a room or an area to people that would meet up and even if it was only to have coffee, they would get something back from it.
Here is my website www.bigjoephotos.ue
My Flickr account is http://www.flickr.com/photos/bigjoephotos/

I will be over from December 22nd to January 1st.
What do people think.
