I would hope that really it's just going to come down to common sense.  A LUG
of one is amusing but hardly likely to get any air time with LA; if the Broome
LUG with 50 occasional attendees but no formal committee knocked on their door
I'm sure they'd be forthcoming.

Have fun,

Paul, speaking as a person who organises events for a LUG with no formal
membership or committee.
