We tried organizing the FLA builders with the Model Car Builders of Florida club last year (maybe year before). We had a couple dozen people doing an online thing and a few members met each other face to face. The club, sadly, was going nowhere. Fortunately, we were able to organize the Florida Auto & Scale Trucks (FAST) club and we're going strong.

I'm in Naples, too. Since I started this thread, I guess I better step up to the plate. We should at least get an initial meeting together and discuss whether it's worthwhile. Mike - if you have a list of people and their locations, maybe you could tell us what's a midway point between us all.

Hey. I work the graveyard shift but I could do meetings if they're local. I'm off on Wednesdays & Thursdays. Paradise Hobbies in Ft. Myers has a pretty decent selection of supplies and they can order kits as well.
