Default Regional Groups question.

A question, probably for the moderators.

The forum offers a Groups facility.

Would it be appropriate to establish an Australian Group?

I'm thinking about a shortcut to establish where we Australians all live, where we have purchased stuff, what Guilds, Mens Sheds, Woodwork Clubs we frequent, and who knows what else might be interesting.

So, how should groups work on this forum, and would regional interests be an appropriate application?

Tks,
C ya.
Clemo.

Clemo, I set up Routerforums Detroit so local members could find each other easily. We make sawdust together and attend special events as a group. A national level group is possible if enough people express interest. You might discuss this with James, he lives in Casula, NSW.

To give Mike an idea of the numbers, how many members are within 80 ks of Liverpool....

James
Sydney, Australia
.

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

Default Lets not limit ourselves.

I'd like to hear from any members in Aus.

If there are regional concentrations, like Sydney, Melb, Bris or Perth etc then we can find each other when we know who we are.

I'm at Batemans Bay, South Coast of N.S.W., so anyone in the ACT, Illawarra, Monaro or on the South Coast?


Tks for replies so far,
C ya,
Clemo.

Anything is possible Phil. It requires someone willing to take the added chores of organizing a list of members and setting up events. Keep in mind that we want the interaction to continue in the regular forums; sharing thoughts and methods world wide benefits everyone.
