It's not premature to pick a date and place!  Do you have contact
information for any of the other interested people?  PDXPUG started with
four people.

The key for us was contacting the University, communicating through other
open source and database user groups, and being consistent!  We kept having
meetings every month, at the same time and place for three months and at
that point, we had a regular following!  Now our meetings have 10-15 people,
and we've had a couple where over 30 people came.

We don't have that, but most of the user group leads watch and post to this
mailing list. You can ask us questions any time!

Also, some of my family is in LA - Alhambra - and I could come down and give
a talk sometime for your group after SCALE.

And if you're interested in creating a "user groups operating manual", I'd
love to collaborate with you as LAPUG gets off the ground :)
