I belong(ed) to a conservancy which followed Roberts Rules, and it really helped keep things on track sometimes.
I have been thinking about starting up a club in my town, if there is enough interest. But I'm not sure I want to get into anything TOO organized. But it would be nice to share some equipment, knowledge on occasion.
I'm not the first guy who fell in love with a woman that he met at a restaurant who turned out to be the daughter of a kidnapped scientist, only to lose her to her childhood lover who she last saw on a deserted island, who then turned out fifteen years later to be the leader of the French underground.
