FWIW, I think that is a terrible idea. The fortnightly meeting
has been a success and continues to get support. I think it
should remain our main focus.
While it's true that some members say the Saturday meetings are

successful, which is yet to be demonstrated -- there should be
no plans to drop one of the normal meetings just because we have
this new shiny thing to play with.
