    When I was between the ages 6-12, my friends and I formed various clubs. The first one was a Ghostbusters club. My 2 best friends and I had all the gear, proton packs (I actually had the slime blower) PKE meters and traps. Rick (not his real name) was designated as Egon, I was Ray, and though he was white, Brian (not real name either) always wanted to be Winston. With only 3 of us, we never had a Peter.
    We wandered around the neighborhood investigating other kid's houses for ghosts, and we even frequented an abandoned house at the end of the block as the main source of PKE disturbances until the cops put a stop to that. We made flyers, business cards, the works. We even held weekly meetings.
    The next club was a Ninja Turtles club, but nothing really materialized since none of us knew martial arts and we damn sure couldn't have weapons. It didn't last long at all, mostly 'cause Brian didn't really care much of the Turtles. We tried to build a tree house as our lair, which has nothing to do with Ninja Turtles, but anyway, we cranked the "Coming Out Of Our Shells" cassette that I got from Pizza Hut while we attempted the tree house.
    By the time we were 11, we abandoned the Ghostbusters and Turtle clubs and formed our own version of an extraterrestrial/UFO/supernatural phenomena club after watching "Unsolved Mysteries." We never had an actual name for it so everything that had to due with the unknown was simply referred to as material for "the club." Again, business cards (Thanks to The Monster Squad) and flyers were made and we specialized in serious paranormal and extraterrestrial investigating. This actually went on until I was fourteen before it too fizzled out and we all outgrew such silly things.

    I was part of the comic book club in high school. Until one of the teachers got in my face. I knocked his ass out. He had it coming.

    We used to play a game called "the Goosebumps club", where we played ourselves trying to recapture Goosebumps stories (along side a few of our own) in their books and keep them from becoming real. Fun times.

    Didnt have a name for this club but I guess it's kind of an "Afternoon Society" Mostly consisting of my brother, sister, and cousins. Whenever it rained, we'd go into the old garage, "build" seats out of whatever we could find, I found a tire tube once and we'd put them in circle and each tell a scary story or a nightmare we had.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who had lots of TV-oriented clubs with friends while growing up. The first "official" one we had was the Duck Tales club- I was Dewey. Also at the TMNT club, The Lion King club, the MLP club... Can't forget the kitty club, too. And then the "homework" club in middle school, which was just an excuse to get into trouble after school (and copy off of each other to maintain our nerdy grade average.)

    In Kindergarten, my friends and I had an X-Men club, we all adopted an X-Men name. I was Cyclops although I wanted to be Gambit or Wolverine.

    I was part of that club too. I think I still have the old cards/membership stuff somewhere.
