When PLUG West started, we kicked it off with a beer night at a local pub
to see who was interested.  Something like a quarterly social meeting might
work if you don't think the NE area has enough of a base to sustain a 
regular group.

The hardest part is keeping a steady stream of speakers.  We've been 
rotating many of our volunteers through all three of the existing groups,
and stretching them to a fourth might wear them a little thin.

If you manage to drum up enough interest (and enough people who will
actually attend), I'd recommend not going for monthly, at least at first.
PLUG North used to meet bi-monthly, so you could try that route.

If you try to form a regular group, make sure you have one person who is
committed to making sure the meetings happen and won't flag when badgering
everyone to volunteer to speak.

Speaking of which...we need a November speaker for PLUG West.  Anyone
working on something interesting that they'd like to present?
