My area (northern Colorado) has an excellent Linux Users Group (NCLUG).
There's a great bunch of guys there.  Unfortunately, they're very
Linux-centric.  I'm kinda the resident BSD Unix heretic -- which is fine
most of the time, but once in a while I'd like to be able to discuss
stuff with people who primarily use BSD Unix systems instead of
Linux-based systems.

Unfortunately, there isn't a single Colorado BSD Users Group in Colorado
that I can find.  The closest I've been able to find mention of online at
all is Laramie, Wyoming -- LWFUG, or "Laramie, Wyoming Freenix Users
Group".  Their website seems to have become a domain squatter's portal
site, though.

So . . . does anyone here have any suggestions for how I might go about
finding BSD Unix users somewhat local to me?  Since there isn't a group
already that I can find, I wonder if there are enough people interested
in such a thing in this area to build a users group.  Any suggestions for
how to go about finding fellow BSD Unix users in my area would be
appreciated, I'm sure.

I would put an add in the local newspaper and ask if there are any BSD users around.
That is exactly how the Tucson Free Unix Group started  a  decade  ago.
Unfortunately since then TFUG has become increasingly dominated by Linux users and Windows converts
(who maybe run Ubuntu on a small partition or via VMware).

As in your case that was fine for a while but at some point it became increasingly difficult for both sides to tolerate each other so I voluntarily sized all my activity in the group. The timing coincide with my decision to switch to OpenBSD:-) I do know of two other BSD users on TFUG (one NetBSD and another younger member is using FreeBSD) as well as few Solaris users but I didn't stay in touch with them.


P. S. There is a very strong local BSD group in Phoenix but they are much to far away from Tucson that I could participate in their activity.
