I've been a huge fan and a supporter of all things Ghostbusters for some time now. I've been trying to become a part of a group, but I was unable to get involved with two groups because some of the members of these groups have held unnecessary grudges against me of which I have no control over.
I live in the state of Florida, and no one has claimed the name of Florida Ghostbusters that I'm aware of. I'd like to create this group to not only represent all the groups of Florida, but to allow people like me who aren't in groups to join and feel welcome. My idea is to allow anyone in the state of Florida to join, even if they're in other groups. I'd like to have a broad range for members all over the state to get involved in events or fundraisers/charities that other members can't reach to represent the group, and to help in any way that they can. My main goal is to get all Ghostbusters of Florida involved in this where they otherwise may feel they're out of reach. I'd like to focus solely on fundraisers, charities, events for the kids, etc. Anything that will be beneficial to everyone, whether financially or for just simple enjoyment.
Where I need advice is that some have told me that creating a group by the name of "Florida Ghostbusters" would be a bad idea because it would be too "broad". I've also been told that my group idea is pointless, as other groups are apparently more important and the state of Florida doesn't require an additional one. The thing is, my idea is to include everyone in the state of Florida, not limit the group to a few people. I want to make the group as large as I can.
So what I'd like to get advice for is whether or not I should implement this idea? I've got a few people interested, and if I make this a reality, I'd personally invite all groups to join.
What do you guys think?
