Apologies if this is getting redundant but I think all of your efforts to establish a young birders club are extremely admirable. Im not sure if I still qualify as a "youngbirder" but i've been birding in Connecticut since I was a child and have had the pleasure of birding with many members of this list. Ive had a fantastic crew of local mentors and expirience with other young birder organizations and i would love to help facilitate such an organization in my home state.
Thanks to all,
