Just checked my mailbox..
First meeting of PLUG was held on Sunday 29 August, 1999 @ QVPL
office. ( I think there were some informal meetings happened before
that and also for about a year after that meeting at various locations
like COEP Boat Club etc.)

There are so many other confirmation messages found...

Nobody has mentioned about "Who is the Best" . Whatever the reasons
may be, the fact remains that compared to the number of people on the
list, there ar every less people attending the meetings. and I think
it is true for all the LUGs we know. Probably, people cant afford to
spend some 3 hours in a month for spending with like minded people.

/me trying to catch Aditya G. for the PLUG archives CD.
