    Just read the latest reefkeeping and it had a club showcase of MARS. No big deal, they got a RC club forum :D However it said it was the "largest club in Northern California" which had me wondering... no way it's bigger than BAR, they also mentioned a little over 100 members. So I looked at the members tab here, counted them up, and have 176 members that have the Current BAR member/BOD/Admin flag... I think we need to write to RK to get them to correct that oversight! :D

    it would be interesting to know what "members" means, does it mean ppl who have ever paid dues, or current due paid members, etc

    The article was writen by their former or current prez. not RC..

    To me, size doen't really matter, what the goal is is more important.

    Absolutely! We should be happy that they are a large active club, it's a good sign.

    Yeah I wasn't disputing what MARS has done, I was simply curious about the whole "being the largest" bit if it was just bragging, or unknown information.. Hell they've done a WMC, BAR? Ehhh but then again I think they only have 100 or so members because most of them died working the event :D

    Either way, I was not, nor am not trying to turn this into a "we got more posts than you" us vs them competition.

    Does it true that everytime they have the WMC, they lose some good people??

    I wasn't aware they lost anyone on the first go around so I can't say really :) I can say there are a lot of people with big hearts in MARS though :)
