In my experience, the correct person is the person that does things. I
have in my time attempted to breathe life back into Milton Keynes lug
and Brighton LUG, to varying degrees. You don't need to be the Lugmaster
to do that.

In the case of Brighton LUG, I pretty much announce that I'm going to be
in a pub at a certain time and date and let the natural draw of geeks
and alcohol do the rest. Every LUG meet I've been to has had some
alcohol involved at some point.
