Re: NFC: Re: Collecting and BP...ETC

Well put, I agree its only 10 bucks. I belong to so many fish clubs at the
local and national level it just doesn't matter to me where the 10-20 bucks
I spend on each one goes. To me if each club helps out one person learn
about aquatic life thats worth it to me.
