    Thanks to Dipsy Doodle Doo, here's the area we cover:

    The Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) is a 13-county region in the U.S. state of Georgia, and is also considered to include five to eight counties in South Carolina. The term was coined in 1950 by C.C. McCollum, the winner of a $250 contest held by The Augusta Chronicle to generate the best name for the area. Today the acronym is so commonly used that the full name is not known to all residents. The region is located on and named after the Savannah River, which forms the border between the two states. The largest cities within the CSRA are Augusta, Georgia and Aiken, South Carolina.
    As of the 2010 American Community Survey from the U.S. Census Bureau, the CSRA had a total population of 709,433, and the six-county Augusta-Richmond County Metropolitan Statistical Area (at the center of the CSRA) had a population of 543,738, making it the second largest in the State of Georgia.

    GREAT IDEA!!! I was just thinking of starting one for us since a lot of us have showed up recently. I put up the flyer for our SC swap on irmo this Saturday. I put it up at the tractor supply on Bobby Jones and talked to the mgr there and he was interested in having one too. Said a few people have already asked him about it.
