I think that's an excellent idea.  Set up a page somewhere, make it look
good, put interesting content there, show that it's easy to maintain and
that you (or someone else) is willing to do so, and _then_ talk about
hosting and making it the clug.org.au site.  The idea of having it being
mostly static-looking but with freshly updated content is good, too.

An organisation like CLUG will probably be able to get free hosting by
begging from a Linux-friendly local ISP.  (That's how PLUG got its
current set-up: the colo machine was built and donated to us by a
member, and we approached ISPs until we found one willing to give us a
bunch of IP addresses and some space in their rack.)

I get a "not found" page there. :-(
