I'm also nowhere near you, being on the opposite side of Sydney than Wollongong. I'm also not aware of any other gamers in your area.
Have you tried putting up notices in the 'Gong GW store? We did this for my club (Newcastle store, not 'gong), and got a few people in that way.
Have you tried joining Wargamerau (another board like this one, but closer to home.) and looking for new blood there.
The other issue could be the PCYC thing. My club used to be a PCYC club, but we couldn't get new blood because we were REQUIRED to charge them a years' membership to PCYC just so they could step in the door, on top of any meeting fees (for the hire of our hall). We've moved to the Rugby supporters club close by (across the road from the PCYC) and have had several new people join as a result.
Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?
