starting a REI club from scratch

Hey guys,

I know this topic has been discussed before so I’m going to hit the archives but in the meantime if anyone who hasn’t posted (or has before) about this subject I would like to hear how you started a club, structured it, how has it evolved, how did you market, what ads you ran, etc. I’m off to the archives,


Hey Nate,

I haven’t personally started one, but a local HomeVestors group just put one together recently in my area by using to set it up. In less than a month there are already 125 members who have registered on-line and a meeting I attend this past Tuesday had about 60 people show up.
