We do sort of cheat with the numbers, there's a significant number of
people in that ~1500 who arn't in Victoria, just like there's quite a
few Melbournians on the SLUG lists.
Still, probably over 50% of the members are in Melbourne or the suburbs.

I'd say thar 70% is about right for us as well (except for the high-draw
meetings). Back when we where in the Telstra auditorium in Melbourne's
CBD we hit 100 fairly regularly, our numbers are slowly moving back up
from the big hit we took moving to Trinity College at Melbourne Uni.
