No ridicule here, Ken, though I can think of a site or two where that would be expected -- I've encountered a couple of LHSA members, and they seem helpful, knowledgeable, and dedicated to collector type issues. They evidently swing some influence with Leica too. I'm not a member, so I don't know what response is normal.
This reminds me of joining the American Legion a few years ago. I get the national and state publications, but not a peep yet out of the local lodge about their meetings or other activities. I went up there once to see what's up, and all I found was a few folks whiling away the afternoon in the bar. Not really my style...
Didn't see a bulletin board either, oh well.
Good luck, Ken, and I expect you'll hear from them eventually. Maybe the magazine is bimonthly or something.
