Have been converted.  I agree.

Now how about this to level off the playing field.

Limit the number of "Members"  that each club can use as a group? Then 
you dont get the "Super Groups"

So in this case mileage does not matter.

Just limit the number to a number that all seem correct.

If you have more members than you can have, then a second group is 
formed, and a third, fourth  etc.  then we even have some freindly 
localized rivalry to add into the mix. It would be almost like a sports 
team.  where each team  tries to assemble the best team possible.
