Sounds similar to what I (we) are doing.  We make showing and critiquing
work an excuse for a get-together.  Used to be just the guys, but now the
wives and SOs come too.  And it's much more fun!  One of the gals has become
a good B&W printer herself so she's kind of a dual member.  And my wife owns
a gallery and loves to see new work.  She carries the work of all 5 of us.

I like your method as well, in that you get to see the work of many more
photographers, spread out in locations and can spend some time with the
prints to get past first impressions.  Got to be patient, though, waitin' on
the postman.

I had no idea that you were involved with the analyzer until your recent
post where you included the URL.   I'll have to take a closer look next time
we meet over at his place.  I want to see how the display relates to the
OM-4s.
