Hello all. We started a club about a year ago, not necessarily qrp, but
ham radio in general.
My interest in ham radio was regaining after a big slump.
Well, to make a long story short, I met several (anonymous people)
that were interested in building qrp rigs as was I.

We had building sessions with qrp rigs as the basis, we copied several
designs and brought them to the club, we brought copies of Danny's catalog
etc. A lot of people were having fun. Interest by other people was sprouting
and other non qrp projects were showing up. Everything was great..
but there were certain parties that apparantly despised the qrp stuff, and
suggested things like "we do projects that people want to do" instead of that
same old qrp stuff. When it was suggested that they come up with a group
project, they always seem to come up with an excuse not to do it.
My question is for all of you with some club experience..

1. Is it time to break off the qrp sector and go solo?

2. Is this just one of those things that is common with all clubs,
        and I should just ignore it?

3. Why are there jerks in this hobby, I thought that the 20 wpm test was
        a pretty good filter.. :-) That's a joke guys..
