Here in the Dallas area, we have quite a few events going on anyway. However, there are some of the higher-mileage riders that will also make every brevet in Austin, in Houston, and some of them in West Texas (Dallas, Houston, and Austin coordinate their schedules so they don't have conflicting brevets). With that in mind, if you've got another club or two within 250 miles or so, you can broaden your horizons considerably without changing how things are done locally.
On occasion, I have bright ideas about things ought to be done in the local club, and, upon suggesting them, find they have been tried in the past with negative results.
I would suggest maybe contacting the RBA Liason with RUSA and get their input on the desirability of adding another club or additional rides in the area.
Otherwise, Unterhausen has an idea with putting together some permanents. Here locally, one of us will be hosting a permanent pretty much every Saturday, and oftentimes Sundays as well, so you can pretty much ride a 200k with other people ever weekend.
