Solaris Users Groups?

I have an idea to start a Solaris Users Group in Budapest. There are probably dozens of such clubs around the world, so please share with me any thoughts that slip into your mind:)

I'm thinking on:

    having a regular monthly meeting with presentations on deeper technical subjects (zero marketing slides)
    holding an "installfest" of Solaris 10 for notebooks and PCs (Solaris 10 is free, remember?)
    pizza and beer party afterwards:)

The guys at www.sunfreeware.hu seem to like the idea. I still have some connections in the dormitory I used to live at before graduation, so getting a larger room to accomodate a few dozen people should be easy (I've helped setting up a Sun ONE student center there two years ago, and we're sponsoring the Karoly Simonyi Specialty Dormitory (named after ex-Microsoft Charles Simonyi's father) with Sun equipments and software licenses).

I hope to have more details by next week:)

BTW: does the word "specialty dormitory" exist in English? What do you call a self-study group that specilizes in certain subject and has strict rules and structure? I've tried searching for a term that could describe the Hungarian word Szakkollegium (meaning special + dormitory) but found none...

Comments:

Also, may be it is interesting to talk about other Sun technologies, like Sun Gridengine, JXTA, NetBeans, and of course OpenOffice (but I guess everyone knows OOo). They all run on Solaris, and users may find them useful :)
