I live in the Carthage area (ZIP 13619).
I have discoverd in my 12+ years in NY (Upstate) that the state is Hugh.
If we were to start a chapter called NY than I think we may need to have subordinate satalite type groups.
This way we can consolidate the different areas members and supply reports and issues to the main chapter that are spacific to geographical location.
this would creat a very good chapter with great details and member support powerful enough to influence legislation and convenience for the chapters members wanting to travel the state.
