Quote from: TheSkyHornet on July 19, 2019, 06:04:19 pmThursdays has worked extremely well for us. We have the ability to use the meeting night in the same fashion as any other meeting night without the impact of a lot of holidays (Thanksgiving is typically our own known "have to cancel" week of the year)--No Monday holidays to worry about. And what's nice is the fact that, because we meet 6:30-9pm and have some level of exhaustion by the end of the night, we can all go into Friday as our one last day of the week to get through, then enjoy the weekend. We can have as many back-to-back weekend activities that we can offer, whether at the unit level or higher echelon that are open for invite, without worrying about scrapping valuable meeting time. Sundays were terrible. Low morale; low turnout of seniors and cadets. If we had a weekend activity, we had to cancel the meeting, which meant we had to realign when we would do testing, Character Development, PT, whatever needed. It was just an absolute mess. What was really ironic with the whole thing was that I was really pushing people to test changing the meeting night, and the response I would get in return was "We always met on Sundays." When I asked how people felt about moving the meeting day, they said "Well, I always felt like weekends were terrible to meet." Then why didn't you move it? The answer: "We didn't know who would leave and who would stay." I know of a number of units that meet on weekends, and they have the same story. I also know of a number of units that meet on Tuesdays and Wednesdays that seem very successful. Never heard of a unit that meets on a Friday. Monday meets seem to be fairly dead from what I've seen, and it doesn't seem to be common in our area.

Definitely keep us posted in the long run as to how this works out.

Plus the weekend may still be wearing off. Quote from: Angus on August 20, 2019, 07:11:59 pmSaturdays seem to work quite while. First unit I've heard of that meets on a Saturday. What's the usual head count for a Saturday?
