I don't know if it's done at the moment, but I wouldn't mind paying subs
(say something like £10 a quarter) to contribute to events, a
half-yearly magazine, etc. that's more targeted to LUG members and
attractive to a wider audience of users? I'd like meeting people in my
area, but I'd also like to be able to meet up with people from further
afield for debates and functions, and so on.
At least something like this should bring LUGs working together a bit
