They don't have meetings. Rather, they conduct tastings from time to time (some very large, some smaller). All you have to do is pay up the initial membership fee and you're all set. In addition to being invited to tastings, you have access to their limited bottlings, some of which are fabulous. As to the cigars, they usually hand out a cigar sampler at thei big tastings. If I recall correctly, at the last tasting I received a Romeo et Julieta churchill, a Trinidad (maybe a lonsdale) and a rubusto (maybe Don Diego).
