Default Maya Users Group (MUG?)

I'm interested in starting a Maya Users' Group in Oahu, Hawaii. Are there any Hawaii users here that might be interested? If so please email me.

I would also be interested to hear about other MUGs in different areas. Maybe some lessons learned on setting up and running such a group? Pros and cons? Actually anything on MUGs would probably be helpful.

So any MUGgers (sorry couldn't resist the pun) out there or any interested in setting up such a group?

Vladimir,
I see from the meetup site that your group was founded in oct '03. From your experience, has the group been active enough to make it worthwhile? I ask, becuase to my knowledge there isn't one here on Oahu, so I think I'll be the one to kick it off. I'm already researching a venue to hold meetings in.

I think a MUG would be a great place to network and learn form each other (similar to what we do online here on SM). Oahu doesn not seem to have a large Maya user population, or at least I haven't found where there hiding

SM has over 40,000 registered user, surely there are a couple more from Hawaii :o

[Edit] For those of you jeolous... get over it I'm only here because the Navy made go here. Plan to return to San Diego when I retire in '07.

It all seams a bit far away over in the USA, any MUGger's local to Essex in the UK. London is only an hour from where I am so that would easy enough for me to attend.

Hmmmm?

Tim,

There is a maya user group in London. I'll just get the URL...

<Please Hold>

OK, the only UK one I can find at the moment is:

Lever Dev Centre
For meeting info contact:
Mark Jones, De Montford Univ.
Phone: 44-116-257-7566
Fax: 44-116-257-7574

But Heres another to try:

AliasUserGroup

Good Luck

I think we are a little lacking in Community Groups for Maya in the UK
