How has your involvement with a club or organization enhanced your hobby experience?

Here are some answers sent in from our E-Newsletter readers

The smartest decision I made was to join the Charlotte Coin Club years ago. There’s a huge amount of knowledge among the members that they are always willing to share. Plus, there are always some good deals available for purchase.

Club and organization involvement nowadays, is an untapped treasure in the hobby. People convince themselves they don’t need clubs because they can find information online. But, they don’t know what they are missing. Lifelong friendships, education from lifelong collectors, people who have been there and done that in the hobby for the past 30, 40 even 50 years to name a few. One generation passing on their interest and knowledge to another. That is how club and hobby involvement has enhanced my hobby experience, and it can do the same for others as well.
