Default Gauging interest in starting new club

I would like to see if there is enough interest in starting a northern Indiana large scale/live steam club. Thinking of a Round Robin format for meetings but open to other ideas. I would like to have a focus on live steam operation with battery power for between steam operation. I have ran on Jim Sanders portable layout, which is a nice layout but has no scenery. Its like many here in the USA feel that scenery and live steam wont mix. Just watch videos of the 16mm ng groups portable layout, it has scenery just like an HO/OO layout would and they are mostly live steam operation. Focus, theme of the layout(if any) can be decided later. I would like to show others that live steam in G scale can be more than just running in circles, many times at a high rate of speed. I myself live in Kokomo, about an hour north of the Indy metro area. If I had the income after finaly getting my own pair of live steamers, I would buy the Michigan groups portable layout/trailer as a starting point and rework it with scenery. Mike
