Not a single person attended. I initiated this at the request of two of our local residents who proclaimed a strong interest in forming a club. They chose the time and the location. I made up flyers, paid for a TV ad, made sure the local extension office was informed. So it wasn't for a lack of awareness.
This is a really interesting area, with some truly eccentric personalities. There are some super independent people here and that may be one of the factors. Don't know.
