My point is that that these "micro LUGs" would be like satellites to the
main regional LUG -- the idea being to increase the takeup of GNU/Linux
and Free Software generally using a very local buddy system, which would
then feed into an enriched regional LUG. 

Asking people with a possible/vague interest to travel 30-45 minutes to
a KLUG meeting with experts can be intimidating (no matter how they
friendly they are!). If you make the access **local**, then the entry
point will be lower and the uptake _should_ be higher.

On the point of a dedicated training location, I'd be interested in that
as well.

I'll give the FLUG a test flight anyways and see how it goes!! 

cheers, Jake
