What do people think about a mini buy/ swap / sell at each meeting too.
Like setup a couple of tables up the back for members to use ?

Subject: [MLB-WIRELESS] General Meetings
I want to kick off a discussion about our General Meetings. I think
we've had some good meetings lately - I'm wondering if people can
suggest what we're doing right and what needs improvement?
Any comments are welcome, in particular about:
* Is the discussion content interesting? I've been doing some
talks lately - are the more experienced members happy with this or would
you like to see more advanced stuff in the mix?
* Is the format and naming of the "meeting" appropriate? It has been
billed as a "General Meeting", but I feel that the regular monthly
meetings aren't really formal Meetings as such but are more social and
informational gatherings. We obviously don't need to have official
meetings every month
- we just don't have official business to take care of every month. And
the word "meeting" to new people may evoke images of official minuted
meetings that don't really represent what our monthly meetings are
* How should we announce the meetings? We are going to start sending
out an automatic monthly reminder email to all registered site users
(that haven't opted out), to give notice of meetings. Should we send
this email a month, a week, a day before? Currently we've been
averaging a mailing-list-only announcement a week before, and a mass
email on the morning of the meeting.
* Anything else we should be or not be doing at our meetings/events?
The next meeting / info night is on Friday 11th May, 7pm, Hawthorn Scout
