That would be the general problem. People show up to events, but no
one really wants to organize them. It's always been that way for the
team. The problem is I don't want to do it either anymore.

That's the way LoCo teams are made. Yes, there are teams that split up
the loco into subteams, but that requires even more leaders; our team
hardly has one as it is. I've had people from North Jersey say they
wanted to do this (one started out saying he wanted to /start/ a new
jersey team!), but they didn't follow through.

I have a membership roster, but no idea of the dedication of said
members -- ie are they actually going to do stuff, or did they just
add the loco team like they'd add a facebook group? Usually, it's been
the latter. And no, no idea of the location.
