We've had 2 successful IRC meetings (Freenode's #ubuntu-connecticut) so far (you can read the highlights at the Team Wiki) and I've heard some people wanted to make it but could not. So instead of trying to organize a meeting each time on the forums where some people may not be able to get to (or get to in a timely manner) the idea is to schedule the IRC meeting to occur at a predictable time.
The above ideas are suggestions, please feel free to respond with other ideas of timing. They are not set in stone.
For example, the "Second Thursday of every month" could be changed to 1rst, 3rd, etc and could be Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday ... you get the idea.
If you have any variations on the above, post them.
