	I was one of the people involved in starting Mass GTUG but it is proving to be too Boston-centric. I can never make it out to meetings. GTUGs, in general are a wonderful idea, not only to keep up on new technology releases, but also to encourage local networking.

	I have a reliable location for meetings accessible to I-91 making it convenient for most of the Pioneer Valley and the Berkshires. With the Five Colleges right near by, I should be able achieve high attendance at least 9 months out of the year.

	Looks like I need help getting the word out. So, whether you are seeing this on my site, FaceBook, LinkedIn, LiveJournal, Twitter, Buzz, or anywhere else, please get in touch if you have any ideas or if you have time to help me get this going.
