    Lets see if we can rally some people from the other boards and put something together, sooner the better for me, I have been thinking this for some time, I think it would be sweet.

    When I lived in Minnesota we had a several meetups and used a yahoo group for the online organization(and they still do).

    So I set this up: arkansastfs : Arkansas Transformer Fans

    You can view/post messages there or sign up to receive messages posted there in your email and post messages by emailing to: arkansastfs@yahoogroups.com

    What the MN group did for meetups was meetup either at someone's place or a restaurant(or some coffee-shop-type places that had separate meeting rooms), and we'd eat/hang out and talk/show/trade/watch TFs, see someone's collection if we met at their place, and then go on toy hunts to nearby stores.

    If we met in Russellville, anyone know a place we could meet?

    If people wanted to come to Little Rock I could host a meeting at my place(unless the group suddenly gets huge).

    But nobody is allowed to strip at my place! Oh... wait, you mean go see strippers. :wink:

    Well, seeing as how I live there, I have a few suggestions, we might be big, we are no where near as big as Conway, Little Rock, Fort Smith or Fayetteville. There are meeting rooms at places like Western Sizzlin...that's about the only place I can think of like that at the moment. (I'm running on fumes :p )

    ...and we only have 1 Wal-Mart and 1 K-Mart. No Target (yet anyway) or TRUs.

    I live in Joplin, MO but I'm more than willing to travel to like say Fayetteville, AR or Springdale or Rogers or somewhere in that area.

    Well to be honest once money starting getting tight and I had to sell the biggest and baddest piece in my collection (100% complete Fort. Max) I kind of lost the want to keep collecting TF. I'm still very intersted in them and keep up with everything but when I sold that it was like selling one of my kids as it was not only the gem of my collection but it was a gift from a family member. I've since started collecting the new GI JOE stuff though as I find it a nice replacement.

    Little Rock is a 3 hour 1 way trip for me. I understand that their are a lot of people all over the state interested in TFs. What if we had regional groups that met once or twice a month, then a big meet for all the groups once a year? If there was a group in NW AR, I would join in a second. I don't have anyone to discuss TFs with at the moment. It would be fun to show off my collection and see what others have.
