This is a frequent question we get.

My recommendation is to start small and light.  Don't attempt to
replicate other user groups in scale.

Start with a mailing list, and get the word out locally.  Let it grow as
it gains recognition.  Once you have a few regulars around, get together
informally, but keep the stakes low.

Don't set high expectations

Don't build out some crazy infrastructure, you're not Netflix

Don't build out some top-heavy organizational structures, you're not there.

And keep it fun.
