	Website. Http://www.aquabid.com run by the good folks from Fish
Link Central. Conducts auctions online.

Yes, you can get the form from the website. Fees are very little $10 per
year which you can pay from the website via credit card. Initiation rites
involve using dip nets and sienes and occasionally canoe paddles in
imaginative ways. There is no secret handshake that I know of but we can
make one up just for you. <grin>

I like it. We have about thirty people participating right now. I have one
tank for over a year and starting work on another. 

Feel free to start one up in Missouri.
