To identify it as being in WA, how about WA Great Southern LUG 

If you are considering incorporation, from memory, a minimum of 5 
members is required, to institute incorporation (see 
, and the text under the heading "Eligibility for incorporation").

If sufficient interest exists, for a LUG as described, I think it is a 
great idea.

It could also help "spread the message", in the Great Southern area, 
including the possibility of getting local governments and businesses, 
to switch to Linux, to cut costs (and increase computer system security 
and reliability), and this would all be enhanced, by having a specific 
LUG, local to the area, with listed support professionals.

The message above, does not indicate whether a separate mailing list 
would be wanted, or whether the members of WAGSLUG (?) would simply be, 
or, continue to be, members of this list. Either or both options, should 
be workable and useful.
