Starting a Regional

I am an exchange student and had the idea of starting a new team in Germany when I come back (ready for the 2006 competition).
But attending a regional competition in the U.S. would be really expensive and probably block a lot of sponsors.
So I thought that I might have to start a regional in Germany/Europe.

Who knows what to do for this?
Also there must be some other students out there who participated in FIRST and will be outside the U.S. next year.
