Scripting group

I was wondering if there is a group of like-minded coders in the southeastern United States that meet to help each other with scripting problems or to just have a beer and laugh about the week. If there isn’t any yet I would be interested in starting such a group. P.M. me if you are interested or if you know of any groups and their meeting times. I would be interested in joining if they have room for a mostly confused but optimistically eager student.
