This sounds like an extraordinarily complicated solution for a simple problem.

Alternative: Post lunch announcements to the Chicago.pm chatter list.
With a reasonable subject ("Let's do lunch!") I won't even open it.
Assuming it hits at the same time as a bunch of other messages I'm
archiving unread, it's not even any additional work for me ("Select
all" -> "Archive").

Trying to create a separate group with a separate list just for the
occasional lunch email seems like overengineering to me.
