Sounds good to me!  I was thinking along the same lines.  Maybe have a few 
presentations each meeting on what people are doing with perl in their projects, 
cool/helpful perl modules, or short tutorial workshops.  I'm interested to see 
how perl is being used by others, and show off some cool perl projects.

We could also have perl obfuscation or perl poetry contests.  Or panel 
discussions.  Or intro to perl nights for beginners.

Do these ideas seem practical?  I'd like to think so.  What do you think?  Any 
other ideas?
