I would definitely agree with Dan. It's hard work running and more hands
do help. I had always looked to get more local groups running which
helps with local numbers, then when they need help KLUG on a county wide
basis can dip into a larger pool for help. It's a hard balance, it took
quite a few years of constant digging at the members to reach the
current level and Colin and Dan have done a wonderful job keeping the
pace going. I think FLUG could now be the next stage in KLUG's life. If
we can support a smaller group and it works out (and there has been a
constant need for a presence in that corner of Kent), that could be a
template for more local groups.
