    • Ideas
      • We could have "booths" or tables that new people visit and ask questions and we demo stuff for.
        • Definitely not enough room for this to happen. --strages 05:56, 15 July 2008 (CDT)
      • We could have talks every hour on the hour that go into more detail
        • This won't work due to the sporadic nature of people showing up for an open house type event and how long they stay. --strages 05:56, 15 July 2008 (CDT)
      • Have brochures available for the taking
      • Donation bucket
      • Have a list detailing what it takes to become a member and what is available as a non member
