I'd agree with this.  A friend of mine came to a LUG meeting a couple of 
months back, his poor girlfriend was bored to years by all the geek talk.

I guess a non-geeky meeting maybe where folks could show things that 
they'd be interested in would be good.  I'm trying to think of it from a 
non-geek perspective, such as a coffee morning type thing where you can 
maybe share tips etc.  I guess I'd have to speak to some non-geeks and 
get their opinions as I could be really wrong :-)
