Is there any demand for a MeFi Meetup in Eastern Washington?

My life really isn't arranged to let me travel for 5 hours each way to attend one of the Portland or Seattle meetups that are held so frequently. I am curious as to whether there is enough membership and interest to bring together a meetup in Spokane, WA?
I have a potential place lined up (a billiard bar right downtown, I've already talked to the owner a bit about it), but have no idea whether there are enough involved readers east of the Cascades for it to be worthwhile even trying to put one of these things together. Plus, well, having not attended one of the established meetups in another city, I'm not even sure what one of these things entails outside of drinks, food, and maybe a little pool.
Any feedback about how to organize one of these is welcome, and I especially hope to hear from other MeFites living in the "Inland Empire" who might want to meet up!
