As a first time host of a meeting, I have a couple of questions.
Is there anything a gracious host needs to do or provide or is the open door sufficient?
If the meeting starts at 1:00, when should I expect the early birds to start knocking on the door?

The key is to make it easy on yourself, LOL. Designate a good place for people to put the snacks and drinks they will bring. Also designate a suitable place for the plant swap, which can be messy and wet. I find that a good sized table on the patio or porch is a great place for the swap, and others have used their garages.

What people really like to do at meetings in a member's home is to look at aquaria and ask questions about what they see.

Hey Michael,

Would you mind making the minutes as sticky?

Thanks,

Brad
