Wanted to pm you but your mailbox is full. Would you please clear some space? Thanks
TexGal referred to "PM", so I think she meant here on APC.TexGal, to whom are you speaking? All of us in the club? I e-mailed Nikolay today and had no response, but my Inbox at APC is only half-full.

I don't want to come across as negative, but we need to find a way to revitalize the club. A few years ago I hosted a meeting and my living room was full, maybe 20 or so people. Many meetings back then had a lot of members present.
At recent meetings that I've attended, there were only about 4 to 8 people. And we didn't have a MetroPlex meeting in May or June.
I'd like to open a discussion of how we can get things ramped up again.
Well, I always figure that when things are slow it is time for some sort of shakeup. What's been happening has contributed to the slowness. That's not a statement toward the club, but just a general notion.May we had a trip to San Marcos as the meeting which I think no one made it apart from Niko
Last month meeting, we could not find a host for it.
Since I joined the club we had the same amount of people show for meetings. I believe at most we were 10. What I have seen is that members do not check APC. I am not sure who is in charge of the website and broadcasting and announcement through e-mail to all the members.
I do like Cheryl suggestion for this month:
what do you suggest?
Good ideas.Since I've just joined not long ago and can't make the Sat meetings I'm not sure what you've tried. Some suggestions to increase participation:
1.Each member donate equipment, fish, shrimp, substrate,etc. from which to do a random drawing each month. I understand that you do swap plants at each meeting. If yall are like me you have a fish box with stuff that you don't use, extra light, filter, etc. If you raise shrimp that could be a donation....
2. Bring a cd with pxs of your tanks. We'd have a time where we show the each person's tank, issues etc.
ALSO: I would be glad to host a meeting at my place. It can be any other time but Friday night sundown to Sat night sundown.
