Take a look at what Sean put together. He had the same idea as you for a forum and website. Personally, I think we could use this forum effectively, especially if Tx sets up the state forums.

One thing about dues: I'd be hesitant to collect dues until we know this thing is gonna work out and last. Especially considering there's gonna be some people who have dealt with prior clubs who might not be as optimistic.

Thedude00, you're a yr older than me. Where'd you go to highschool? I'm assuming you've been a Staten Islander for your entire life so it's a possibility we know eachother.

It is exciting to see a thread started today gaining so much momentum.

For starters, I want to show you guys something I've developed, with the help of Phil. The name of the group we were interested in starting is called "Pour Standards." We managed to secure the web address roughly a month ago (http://www.pourstandards.com), and I began developing a website for it. In addition to the website, we installed forum boards that we could begin using once we're all ready. The logo was designed by myself.

thedude00 has some pretty great suggestions. What is everyone's schedule for the end of February, beginning of March? I'm free pretty much everyday after 5pm, and available all day on Sat and Sun. Let's meet up soon and get this ball rolling.

everything just ideas. Dues is the last think i am worry about. I want to set up a club that people know that is going to be there, a club where we share the love of the hobby. Would like to see some thing a little more set up then just a group of guys getting together once in a while shooting **** about beer. There was a great club in vegas meeting,website,event and so on. Every meeting or newsletter or event you learned something and had a great time doing it. Want to see something like that out here

Sean i was born on Staten island lived in dogan hills for 16 years went to PS52 and IS2 then moved to Las Vegas for high schools years some of collage then move back to the island. What schools did you go to.

The site you have set up looks great love the logo like i said in my last post think a club forum is a great idea you on the same page as me

Everything i posted was just some ideas, some stuff i would like to see in a club i think with some work and time we could have a great club on SI may not be easy but i am willing to put the time in. Any time after 5pm works for me M-F. S-S anytime just let me know


Loving see this idea gaining so much momentum.

One more thing like to add if everyone has a web cam and has a google account they have something call hang outs that a big group of people can get together on maybe if we all cant get together in person in the next couple weeks we could use this to get the ball rolling

Presidents day is next week, and I know a lot of offices are closed. Short notice but to grab a few drinks and bang out some of these details might not be a bad idea.

Mikey and Sonny, what are your thoughts?
