I really try to work out the schedule with some things in mind. For example,
- minimum travel distances in January and reasonable travel distances the other months.
- dining with maximum number of different folks
- no more than twice with any one participant (other than spouses of course)
I’m sure there is a simpler way, but my system as it has evolved is illustrated below.
So, if you see some problem or oversight, please just forgive me and proceed to enjoy.
