I've actually decided to remove my hat from the ring.

The clases were never monthly. After we saw the response, we tried to
make it happen, though. But you'd be amazed at how hard it is to find a
-reliable- space to hold meetings that fits all of our requirements.
When we thought we finally had one, IBM pulled the rug out from under us
and told us we'd have to pay somewhere around $200 for every time we
used their space. Another space fell through do to one of our members
being laid off, and the SAS space is one we would only allowed to use
once a year. Please, don't think for a moment we haven't tried to get
the classes going again. Everyone on the steering committee has been
involved in the effort. Sometimes things just don't come together. But
why don't you run for the steering committee and fix it? Alternatively,
the steering committee doesn't -have- to be the ones organizing the
classes. A TriLUG member could step forward and take over.
