    There were some of these a few years ago, they were fun to go to and swap frags at. What happened to them?

    It's one thing to arrange trades/sale or pay forward some frags at a meeting, but to organize a mini swap is another level. Won't happen unless someone wants to put in the work.

    Doing mini frag swaps in addition to normal meetings like tankguy suggests seems like the easiest way. Still leaves the issue of people stepping up to organize normal meetings...

    I'm not sure how regimented you guys like to be with your frag swaps since I'm new to the club, but if it isn't very complicated (self-organizing) then it's easy to host. The more rules, the more likely only the guy who made up the rules wants to host.

    I'd be happy to host meetings in the future but I figure I need to go to at least 1 meeting first lol. Plus I live in Walnut Creek which I know most of you feel like is the end of the Earth :)
