Not to knock anyone on the MAST committee, but for the number of hobbyists in the GTA, membership and meetings should be much larger than 20 people. There is a lot of work to do when heading up an organization like this.

If we ever want to host MACNA we have a lot of work to do.....

well, want needs to be done? i guess wed need a meeting place, and a website, and someone to make cards for the club members. would we need to be registered with something? i bet a lot of members of this forum would join! wed also have big metting turnouts due to the fact that T.O. is so big.

It's not exactly that easy, yes maybe to get going but what keeps people coming back....

Meeting Location
Special Guests
DIY Workshops
Topics of Discussion
Sponsorship
Monthly Newsletter
Website
Establish a Constitution
Elect the Executives
Financial Statements
Membership Fees

These are just a few things that come to mind.

ok so...toronto doesnt have a club because were a bunch of lazy asses?

or do we all work too much to even think about turning our beloved hobby into somewhat of a...a job?

i think it could be beneficial to toronto. the city is always looking for more tourism hot spots and things for visitors and inhabitants to do. (spend money) im sure, if we had smart enough ppl working on this, we could get a grant from the government of some sort. if we started something on endangered fish, or building a large aquarium, or inspiring more buying and selling in and around T.O.

maybe im alone in the thought, but it would be lots of fun! headaches of course are a given, but fun would be included too. not to get all "well make toronto better" or anything, but I think we could add something to Toronto, that may actually effect the city in a positive way.

theres got to be some big wig out there whos into aquariums, maybe he/shed help us out...???

I always like to hold smallish meet and greets.. they always went well I am usually shy at first which is why I have issues with getting more done. I hope to be able to do it a few times again this year
