[Purdue-pm] Meeting Ideas? Both Micro and Macro

As a remote member I thought I'd add my 2 cents.

I joined the group because I because I'm interested in expanding my knowledge of Perl and keeping track of any really special events at Purdue (such as Stallman's visit).
I made my living with Perl at AT&T and still freelance - so my fundamental reason is financial.

I'd be interested in attending meetings online and occasionally coming to Lafayette (90 minute drive).  I might even be able to do a presentation on some subject (although I'm pretty much a plodder).

After hours meetings about Perl would probably need more than beer to attract people - maybe a Schwartz visit?

I think the Purdue group could attract people from across the state (because of it's connection to Purdue).

How have other Perl Mongers groups dealt with this problem?
