Guys, I am in Southern Colorado and will not attend any meeting set 
up. No matter how you cut in a core group of people who live close 
enough together are going to need to get together physically and form 
the PCHS, there will be paper work to fill out and decisions to make 
to get this off the ground that you can not get done on-line. I was 
in of the forming of the Pueblo (Colorado) Locomotive & Rail 
Historical Society and there is no way it could have been done excpet 
by getting together and doing it.

Gee.....I thought that I had said that earlier this week.... :-) That's
why I proposed creating the second mailing list to use for that
purpose. With people on this list from New York to Ohio to Colorado and
even Ft. St. John, BC, we're never going to find a place that suits
everybody. Even if we did somehow agree on a place, I'm not sure how
many people you would get to attend, simply because of either distance
or family or other commitments.

I can't do it right away, but I could investigate the possibility of
seeing if I can add a chat room to my web server that we could use.
More on that later....

However, since I'm pretty swamped with stuff, I'm going to hold off on
creating the second mailing list for now. Use this list for the time
being to discuss PCHS matters, although if everything else gets
drowned out or I start getting complaints, we will have to move PCHS
discussions to their own list. 

Also, I can create page on my web server for holding texts of documents
or scans of papers that will invariably get created during the process
of forming a society.

Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled discussions.....
