Default CT brewers - where do you buy bulk grain? Group buy?

Last time, I bought a 55# bag of 2-row from the LHBS, but I'd like to get a better deal than that. Anyone doing group buys in CT?

Thanks

Good questions all. Maybe Poobah can point the way while I engage in some research.

I have to dig out the paperwork but it's like $35-$40 a bag from North Country Malt.

If you guys can move some grain to the eastern part of the state, it appears 1 or 2 of you are, I'd be interested even though I'm in RI.
