Could you consider a section that people could post links to makers clubs perhaps organized by country/province/state/city?

First computer 1959. Retired from my own computer company 2004.
Hardware - Expert in 1401, and 360, fairly knowledge in PC plus numerous MPU's and MCU's
Major Languages - Machine language, 360 Macro Assembler, Intel Assembler, PL/I and PL1, Pascal, Basic, C plus numerous job control and scripting languages.
Sure you can learn to be a programmer, it will take the same amount of time for me to learn to be a Doctor.

Personally, I have no issue with your request at all, but in my opinion... I don't see a hell of a lot of traffic embracing that (your) position.

What do you hope to achieve?

Cheers

@frogandtoad Personally I hope to learn of clubs in my general vicinity, and others may also want that.

I think that is a cracking idea. A  directory by topic/interest would be great.

@ronbentley1 I have recently been planning a move in about 18 months and find it difficult to locate this kind of information. Either there are no clubs or it isn't documented where I was looking so I thought this would be a good spot.

@zander  

if you are requesting a special section then you will probably need to address your request to Bill or he may miss your post.   If you just want to set up your own title under existing sections then of course just start a new post in what you deem the appropriate section.

But I would observe that whilst the forum has over 3,500 worldwide members the number of those actively reading and replying to posts is much smaller and many will probably only visit on an infrequent basis.  Thus the chances or someone submitting a maker club in your desired part of the world would, I think, be rather slim.   I think your best bet could be to make a post that specifically asks if anyone knows of a maker club where you may be moving to.  

So where are you planning to go?  Port Royal, Naples seems to have some nice retirement properties.  It looks a nice place to have your butler bring you a cold beer as you lounge by the waterfront. 🍺.  (or your guests, but mine would be a warm pint of bitter, thanks)

@byron Thanks for the information. I didn't realize the forum was so small and obviously global. Now that you mention it, I do notice a lot of posts from the same people with infrequent new people chiming in. I will take your advice and make a location specific post when we move.

I have been retired since 911 (forced) but not moving out of Canada. Our next move will probably be to North Bay Ontario about Sep 2023.

@robotbuilder In some cases you may be dealing with software, electronics, and hardware as I am with my arduino cloud controlled electric water valve.
