Ron Senek went to a Utah train club meeting and was surprised at how few in the club ever went online to any train forums, or did not have a computer at all, and this is the club that Shad is a member of! However many GR guys there are, I think only a small fraction are online.
I would agree with that. As much as I have promoted MLS to our club of about 40 members over the past 10 years, I think only 3 of us really use it. And in general, I think those of us that are on-line have such a huge advantage when it comes to information about our hobby (latest news, problem solving, etc).
I think it is going to take at least another 10 years before clubs are made up entirely of folks that are truly comfortable using computers.
