Yes, our club got started b/c the local brewpub really wanted to reach out and do something with local homebrewers. Our current President and Communications officer worked closely with the Head Brewer and brewpub's manager and got things rolling. I'd start by contacting the micro and see if they are willing. If not, try a local beer bar. I'd also post on other forums - AHA forum, Northern Brewer, the BN forum - anywhere you can - to drum up interest. You'll probably get interest from people who have been members of clubs before, but live closer and might want to join and/or help get you started.
There is a lot of good information on the AHA website.
