Hmmm.  Have you attempted to get food sponsors for the meetings?  We've
had pretty good luck doing so for the other SFPUG.

One of the things we do which is different with the other SFPUG is that
we allow some commercial presentations (i.e. dot-coms presenting their
stuff).  This both fills our calendar and makes them willing to cough up
for food a couple times a year.  Worth considering.

Also, frankly, you could ask us for more $$$.  I don't put in more
because I only get asked for $7 or $10.

Now, if you really wanted to kick off more local Perl activity, I might
suggest doing some kind of Perl Day ... a day-long miniconf here in SF.
 That might also be more palatable for TPF to sponsor.
