Of course!

http://linuxmafia.com/bale/  links to
http://linuxmafia.com/bale/#bafugberk , which links to
http://www.bafug.org/ , which links to

...where one learns that the Berkeley meetings are on 4th Thursdays,
7:30 PM.

Of course, if you trust my BALE page, you can stop at Step 2, because
the info is there, too.  ;->

(Notice that a similar chain of links from http://linuxmafia.com/bale/
takes you to BUUG's pages.)

As I was saying, the main thing to be careful of is to _always_ visibly
be there at your advertised events.  That is, have somebody reliably there,
early, to make sure people see a BUUG table when they drop in.
Seriously, when people hear on the Net about a previously unfamiliar
group's event, they'll show up once to see if it's real.  If nobody's
there, they typically will have a hard time believing the group still
exists, for future events.
