Why are some chapters more active than others....

I don't know. In all of the years I have been with FTE, I still don't have an answer to that question.

Not one that is understandable in terms of what was done right or wrong.

Some places just don't seem to have people that post here, others do. And there is no rhyme or reason to it, apparently.

It is a thing I have not understood, and puzzles me to this day.

Fall/Winter is usually busier than spring/summer.

You know when you see a formation of geese flying and one line of the "V" is longer than the other? I could never figure out why until a wise old hunter explained it to me. It's cuz there are more geese in the longer line.

I check into the VA chapter about twice a month. There's maybe one or two new threads.

The other chapters are probably busier because there are more people in those areas...

Moved from GC. I think this would be a great topic for General Chapter Discussion. Since it hasn't had a new post since August 21st.

Try to take charge and start posting. Try to stir things up. Thats what a few of us have done in the Louisiana chapter and it is starting to pick up. we have had 3 sucessful meets in the last few months. They have been small but it is a start. The longest walk always starts with the first step. We have a long way to go in the Louisiana chapter but we have already come a long way.

<--Speaks the truth!

...then there are the few that have had thier leadership kind-of slip between the cracks and disappear into lala land....
....Then you have the few newbies... (like mine) that are still squaring up to the newer/existing members and always trying to recruit more...

And speaking for this newbie, my #1 right now is recruiting. I know there are a bunch of people here from Nebraska, I just have to get ahold of them.

It seems sometimes like you have to find the button that activates a given areas "FUN METERS". Sometimes it's very hard to find...

Sometimes I've wondered if a deer hunting G2G would light up TN, but I'm just not set up for it.

I know they have truck/tractor pulls around here when it's warm, so I think I'll shoot for a g2g at one of those next year. A couple of the guys are pullers, so I should be able to get a few people there.
