Thanks for all of the suggestions! I agree that small groups can die from lack of interest, but that large ones can't do much! That's why we want something in three decent sized groups that would meet maybe quarterly. That way it doesn't get old, you don't have to travel to often if you live a good distance away, and it would still not be toooooooo far. At most a state away. (still a good distance, but compare it to a floridian driving to west virginia) I love everyones ideas on the newsletter, and I would like anyone interested to contribute a logo, if it is just a rough draft or even an idea. Someone else could draw it, we just need a basic sketch or idea to work from! Then we could have a poll of the members. I would like to take a tally of everyone currently interested, so anyone new joining or who is already involved or interested, please email me, along with anything that you could contribute, are good at, want to suggest, or if you are interested in helping one of the three branches we are setting up. Also please give me the state, city, and branch of the SECP that you would be in! This applies to new as well as old members!!!! I will be posting this every time I feel are numbers are building up and no one can keep track of what positions are filled or not.

Kirkscoastalcarnivores- website design
Wesley- website design
heliguy- design, marketing, logo
ptfreelander- logo and design (love it)
jlechtm- nothing... yet (yes, this is a threat)
My opinions on just about everything else posted recently-
ptfreelander- love the clean logo! Good idea on having a main site and then sections for the chapters
Buster1- agree that small chapters are bad, but see top of post
Ozzy- good ideas on field trips, already posted it at Gardenweb, not much response, so I moved here.
Also, does anyone have suggestion for cities to be the headquarters of the North, South, West, and Main sections of the SECPS? Somewhere within easy reach (well, reasonable) of its people?
On the subject of web hosting, we need a name, I liked www.SECPSonline.org, does anyone else have suggestions? If not, I'm getting it!
This is to speed up the webpage design project, As I asked wesley and krkscoastalcarnivores a while ago to help! Thanks you guys!
Well, I think that's more than $0.02, more like $99, but oh well, had to get it out.
Thanks, suggestions on website names, logos, and cities for the branches are welcome!
PS (edited on)
AS for field trips, amybe in the fall. Aynone have suggestions or ideas?
