Great idea. I am moving to a place that also is lacking in a local club. I would talk (email) both of the clubs you mentioned and see if they can spread the word for your area, there are probably a few people who live near you and would love to stay closer to home. You can zoom in on the darksky map near you and see what areas are darker skies. Than I would contact the other groups again to get advice on how to approach the owners. Star party rules and all that stuff so no damage is done to the property. I hope it works out well for you.
