I am in Wellington, Stephen is near Palmerston North. There are a few others elsewhere I think.

I work on Leksah in my spare time.

The last couple of times I have visited my parents in (who live in Palmerston North), Stephen and I have got together for what we jokingly refer to as NZHac or the NZHUG. Our next trip to Palmy will be late August I think.

There is an Erlang users group here in Wellington (organised by Lenz) and I attend when I can, there has not been a meeting in some time.  It's really more of a FP group in a way as others that attending are not all Erlang users (but most use or would like to use a functional language of some sort).  I think if we changed the name to the Wellington FP Users Group or something we might get more interest (especially if we catered to people interested in learning Scala and F#).
