I subscribe to the AberLUG mailing list (Aberdeen) and I've found it 
quite useful. I've met up with a few people 1:1, but I don't attend the 
AberLUG meetings: A 'geekfest' sounds a rather judgmental! I've found 
AberLUG members friendly, and willing to help anyone learn about Linux.

I guess it's about making contact with like-minded people. I think far 
more people read the LUG lists than attend LUG meetings. However, the 
LUG meetings are what some Linux people want, so each to their own :-)

Best wishes,
