This is basically the point I was trying to make.
I want to welcome everyone into the group in the 
hopes that they may get something worthwhile out
of it.  But once we've selected a meeting time 
and place.  One of the next things we'll need to 
decide is when we want to be prepared to take an 

If we decide to meet every other week for six to 
eight months that would give us twelve to sixteen
meetings between next month and March or May. 
This will determine the pace we need to get 
through the material.

My thoughts for organizing this study group are:

 - Use the influence of CLUE to acquire materials
   for pursuing certification and sharing resources
   throughout the group.

 - Decide on what material is to be studied 
   individually between meetings.

 - Use the meetings to drill each other on the
   material for that meeting.  Possibly in pairs.
   Possibly in a round robin fashion.

 - Asking members (and maybe outside experts) who
   have experience in areas where a majority of the
   group is inexperienced to give a short talk or
   an overview of the material before we start drills.

 - Providing a network, namely this mailing list, for
   us to ask questions relevant to certification of
   other like minded individuals.

 - I'd like to see the members of this study group get
   involved with at least one installfest.  The main
   CLUE group can help out with this.  Other groups
   in the area occasionally put on installfests as well.
   I think we should all be eager to participate in
   these as a practical application of the knowledge
   necessary for certification.

I've never been involved with a study group like this 
before.  Does this seem like a reasonable approach to
the rest of you?  What are you thoughts about what I'd
like to see happen in the study group?  Is there 
something else you'd like to see?
