I think between using the Ubuntu-Au system and the fact that most LUGs  
will probably feature one to five or so members that would be up for  
attending a face-to-face meet-up, the issue of finding a date should  
be rather straightforward. Once a data has been decided, finding a  
time is a relative non-issue.

Now, to find a place? :)
