I've had a few pm's in regards to the availability of local chapter forums of TKF. Let me clear up a few of these...

TKF has 15 local chapter scattered around the Great State of Texas and beyond. These forums, although "hidden" from normal traffic are available to anyone who has an interest in joining in with other "local" anglers to plan meetings, trips, get-togethers, and other "local" business. You can pull down the list of chapters by clicking on the "Chapters" button in the lighter menu bar above each forum page. When you click on that list, you should be able to find a local chapter very close to you. The advantage to these being "hidden" is so that chapters can conduct their business in relative privacy and to keep spammers from causing havoc. No one is excluded from joining a chapter unless he/she has already had problems on other forums. All they require is that you click on "Join this chapter" which sends a request to join to the moderator of that chapter forum. Once he gets the request, he can activate your membership. Then, when you open up the TKF Index page, your local chapter will appear as one of the regular options. You can then keep up with "local" news and conditions and join your buddies for trips to YOUR local waters. But, if you don't send that request to that chapter moderator, he can't activate your membership. He can't do it over the phone or with an email.
I hope this clears up some of your questions about open or closed forums/chapters.
Thanks

Perhaps I'm missing this? Don't see a "Chapter" option at all on the page? (I'm logged in)

Jory,

Click on "User Control Panel" and once on the page, near the left side, click on "usergroups". The next page will show all of the chapters.

Just purchased a 2010 Hobie Mirage Pro Angler can't wait to do some fishing. Today met some true fishermen from Beaumont they were extremely good people and very helpful with my other tools I purchased. Thanks and Jared from Austin Canoe and Kayak had great customer service skills.

Maybe it's too early, but I can't see a "join this Chapter" to click on!
