          I think people are going to need a little more than that too help you out, I mean you could start a local gathering for a specific reason at a McDonalds once a month without needing any government info...I'm assuming your looking for more than that though.

            Just as Hymesdesign stated, unfortunately you don't give enough detail for community members to give you specific answers.

             


            I recommend you start by defining the theme, focus, and uniqueness of your club. Then, research the market to check for competition and size / demographics of your potential customer base. You should create a business plan, which will help guide your research and define the amount of money you need to get your business going.

             


            Most lending institutions want to see a business plan so they know if they lend you money, you have a detailed idea how you are going to turn that investment into more money.
