There's possibilities in something like that. I think the front page needs to 
stay fairly static and give the important information, much like the current 
one. The site should stay fairly tightly structured so that meeting reports 
can be reached in a single click, as would the member list. It could work 
like some sites that have a fairly static front page, but then a blog you can 
optionally view.

I've mentioned it before, but the Hant LUG site is something like I imagine we 
would have, but perhaps ours could be more stylish ;)
