We had 32 Lugger's and significant others at the Lug dinner held in San 
Francisco a couple of years back. This event was set-up to correspond with 
the LHSA Annual Meeting that year and was the largest single Lug related 
event I've attended. 
If you want a larger number of attendees from more diverse locations it 
would probably be best to schedule a Lug meet somewhere near in time and 
location of the next LHSA Fall Meet.
