Hi Russ & Charles:

We must remember however that about 80% of the world's population lives east 
of the Mississippi River. :))   That's a pretty big economic base to work 
within, from a sheer numbers game.

In my opinion we have too many fragmented organizations out west all trying 
to survive with small numbers and pockets of members, and nobody seems to be 
doing anything on a grand scale except for the once a year Jubilee in 

Just my opinion however from observation.
