It's been a long time since I compiled nerdy statistics.

The current incarnation of the Tolkien Discussion Group has had 55 meetings since September 16, 2009.
Average attendance in Valarindë was 5.5 people per session.

We have a solid core of 7 people who each have an average attendance of 40% or better (some much better) since they started coming.

A total of 58 people have visited, averaging slightly more than one new person per session.
A decent number of those come back:
17 people (29%) attended 3 or more sessions
11 people (19%) attended 8 or more sessions

Since moving to Alqualondë (2 sessions so far), attendance has averaged 10 people per session, with 3 new people each time!
