Here, here. BLUG is a great example of how a LUG should operate. Little
formalities or drama, just a simple e-mail list and well attended monthly
meetings to discuss Linux and FOSS.
If someone needs an outlet to expend energy and learn along the way he/she
should look for an open source project that is in need of contributors.
Time there will be much better spent for all involved.
