Yeah. They are a good bunch. I have attended a couple of of GLLUG, well, one
GLLUG, one Lonix and had a good time having never met anyone there before.

I had never considered that. I have no clue to be honest about what women
would want out of a LUG meeting. We have a few women who regularly attend
our LUG meets, and it would be great if we knew if there's anything specific
We have a questionaire which we are preparing and hopefully we can get some
info from the members about what they want.
