I have toyed with how to promote it and I'm currently leaning towards 
the idea of promoting as a LUG within the linux community and as 
something more general to the wider public. Then run it as something 
fairly flexible with a FOSS bias. I don't think anything I organise 
would be PI/kids orientated. The venue I currently have in mind is a 
pub. Though I would be thrilled if someone else were to pick up on that 
and perhaps run something side by side.

The pub I have in mind has a second bar that would be suitable for use, 
free wifi and we should be able to plug in. So I suspect we would meet 
in the downstairs bar and move up if the numbers warranted it. Starting 
off as purely social but I'd hope that as we got some regulars there 
they may bring their interests and talents to it and we may find a more 
hands on agenda.
