Also, if there isn't already a group, starting a LUG is easy.
Here are the steps:
1. Find one or more people who wants to join a LUG.
2. Get together.
3. Declare yourself a LUG.
4. Get together as often as you feel like.
5. Argue over a LUG name and what form of LUG government you will use.
Of course, the more people you gather, the more likely your LUG will last. I hope you find some people in your area you can get together with. Joining (or creating) a LUG is cool thing.
