    We have meetings once a month with awesome raffles.

    Our club sponsor stores have a private section on our forum where specials can be posted for members only. We run contests every month.

    We occassionally do club trips and store after hour events.

    CTARS members get into our conference an hour early as well.

    It's worth the $20 a year!

    Our home base is Manchester,CT. We maintain a tank at a children's museum in exchange for a meeting space.

    Occassionally, we will move them around the state.

    And our big event, Fragtoberfest is in East Windsor in October. It's worth the trip and the hotel offers a discount for staying over night as well

    I find that on an average visit to any of the sponsor shops, I save enough to cover the cost of membership.

    I'll call that worth the price of admission!

    Ever talk to any of the RI shops? I see MA that's why I ask. I'm pretty much on the border of RI/CT myself.
