On RJ, NinjaGirly13 made a post that I replied to regarding funny memories. I instantly recalled some of the various "clubs" we made for ourselves to be a part of as kids. Here is part of the post:

"There were several... a model rocket club, a club that consisted of just
us sneaking around inside the grade school during recess, when we were
supposed to be outside, etc.


But the one that tops them all had to be when I formed a club of neighborhood kids to combat the growing threat of hawks"


That club became known as "Hawkbusters".

It was formed because one day as I was walking home from the bus stop after school, I noticed a large shadow pass over me on the ground. When I looked up, there was a hawk flying really low. It inspired me to create a club to defend against these evil birds.

We never really DID anything about it. Just formed ridiculous strategies on paper that seemed really cool to us.

What clubs did you create or become a part of as a kid?

Oh, man. "Rick's Club".

I think it lasted over a year.

Rick was a raccoon puppet owned by my younger brother, and his favorite stuffed animal. We would gather our stuffed animals around and hold meetings. These mostly consisted of using the tape recorder. This one:


We would talk back and forth into the tape recorder and make the animals talk too. Points were granted for doing things that the other wanted. It quickly devolved into absurdly high numbers, and rescinding points when we weren't happy. And I would quit when my brother wouldn't do something I wanted him to. I quit the club eleventy billion times. Quitting became a sort of secondary point system, wherein quitting once was not enough retaliation, so I would say "I quite five times!" or ten times or whatever. And he would say I am not allowed to quit for the next thirty times. When I wanted to really annoy him, I would call him silly. He HATED that.

How do I join "Rick's Club"?

Also, is the first rule of "Rick's Club" that there is no "Rick's Club"?

I can't even imagine what having a third person would have been like. The possibility never crossed our minds.

As for rules, more like Calvinball than Fight Club,

In elementary myself and two other friends formed a club/secret society called the "Mouseys." It consisted us of getting paper towels and forming them into guns and running around at recess. I also remember a ritual where we all took keychains and buried them in the field.
