Hey everyone. @Lew Ladwig has been sending me areas where he knows about an existing IFFC patrol, and I have been setting them up with a generic name "[Location] Patrol" to start. A few things to note:

1. Some areas are very big and it may make sense to set up more than one patrol. We've already done this with Pennsylvania, for example. If you want to set up another patrol so you can organize activities in your general area, just let me know and we can get it done! It's up to you.

2. Patrol names: If you have an official club name (like Colorado Flat Fender Club instead of Colorado Patrol), just let me know and I can change it. This applies to countries as well: if you'd rather have the name be "Nippon" instead of "Japan," just let me know.

3. Prefixes: I've created "Prefixes" which are short tags for each patrol. The idea behind these is to provide quick understanding of location. Again, these can be changed at your request. Guideline: "Colorado" is a much better prefix than "CFFC" -- the first one provides instant meaning, whereas the second one requires a person to understand jargon that a newcomer won't understand.
This is what the prefix looks like:

4. For each patrol, we have created 2 "forums" to start:
  • Events / Activities / Calendar (for planning stuff)
  • General Chat (for everything else)

If your patrol wants some additional forums added to your patrol area, just let me know what the name should be, and I can create it.

Note: We'd prefer to keep the Tech Chat and For Sale sections separate from the patrols since these things are of interest to everyone!

Hello Otto or Lew, can we have another patrol in Virginia for the group of us around the metro area? Call it NoVa Patrol?
