Here you go, but as with an all volunteer club it is not always kept up to date. Once you make a function or two you will be on the email chain.

Thanks John! I love the pic with the TWIN TOWERS still standing in the background!!!
So, the association is DFW based? No chapters in Houston Metro Area or did I miss something?

Pretty much in DFW but we try to help the other clubs as well. There was one in Houston but I do not know the health of it. The hill Country club is doing well.

I can try and keep you informed of the clubs activities. Best way to join is to come to one of the functions.

Landrover I do not know the details but the Houston group

http://houstonaquariumsociety.org/

Is having some sort of auction at the American Legion Post 490 tomorrow. Doors open at 10. Bidding starts at 11. It is to help raise some money for the FOTAS show this year in Houston. The big show will be in October but I have no details on it.

Okay this is what he texted back to me:
It is a non-toxic water seal.
Minimum of 6 coats.
Soak the antlers in hydrogen peroxide for a day.
Sand the antlers before applying the water seal.
