Or do what PyLadiesSF does: one umbrella group comprised of 
multiple individuals who each lead various interests using 
Python at multiple venues around the Bay Area.  Few of their 
events are speaker presentations, and most provide opportunities 
to sprint on projects, write code, learn Python programming, and 
socialize.  (Lynn Root may correct my perception if I have 
misrepresented them.)

Is BayPiggies open to holding events other than monthly speaker presentations?
