    Define "older." I joined around 01-02 and remember RC Mike from a ways back. I also drifted away a time or three since then as well....

    Where was the very first meeting?

    Was it at Emerald Bay in Bellevue?

    And we went to the Mexican place a few doors down and had Margaritas?

    If so I was there. Lol.

    I still have my membership card somewhere.

    I believe I was member # 24.

    I'll see if I can find my card and take a pic.

    I'm not an active member anymore. But I still have the Clownfish pair I started with in 2002.

    There are not a whole lot of those of us that go beyond 12 years as part of the club. I see some of us "old guys" around from time to time. Good to see old and new faces alike.

    I have not heard from him since I broke down my 180 about three years ago. He took the large fish I had over to Dustin's tank.

    I am still in the hobby. Just not active with the club. Had some health issues that made things like that difficult.

    I see your card has a line titled "RC Name". That was back before Poolkeeper decided to "blow up" RC!

    Yep, most of us didn't have a problem with the other site but all of a sudden he had a problem and moved the club forum here. Not that I have anything bad to say about R2R, I just didn't like the way it was all handled. It all worked out in the end though.

    I got banned there 2-3 times for stupid stuff. Once, I told a story (in the LOUNGE) from my high school wrestling days about having to wrestle a girl. There was one off-color word, and I used a bunch of "******" symbols, but nonetheless got banned for 30 days for obscene language. It was just getting tedious....
