I don't actually live in Carmarthen but I am a pretty regular attender.
I would like to suggest the Fourth Thursday of the Month. Thursday is
Curry night at the venue and was the original meeting night. Picking the
Fourth Thursday avoids the problem of clashing with Cardiff and gives
the people from the middle like me who go to both ends opportunity to
attend both. There is also a certainty of a gap between them.

Incidentally I am not convinced the rota is the actual cause of the
problem but I do agree that a regular date may be easier. It may be
actually more to do with cycles in people attending.
