The era of brick & mortar clubs has been in continuous decline, ever since the late 1990s. When the internet got more and more ingrained in culture (forums, FB, social media, blogs, etc....), then people stopped getting off their #sses to attend 1x per month meetings.

They/we now get our socializing from the comfort of our living room. Eg.: show & tell, tech-talk, meeting up with other locals, object IDs, etc.... Clubs only exist in the largest cities these days. And even then-so, with declining membership. The internet made us all lazy.

Clubs: R.I.P.

You can check the member club list to find clubs here in Texas. I know many have suspended in person meetings while this um, pandemic is going on. Check out the Texas treasure show for this year that will be located in Canton. It's usually a great event.

Hope this helps...

What is your definition of north Texas? Texas is big.

This may not be your idea of a north Texas club but it works in Georgia.
