Friday lunch, or any other breakfast/lunch/dinner meeting is a social event 
because it's unlikely to run across other caches in the field.  It always 
involves talking about caching and sharing stories and ideas.  That's why I go 
and sometimes "call" it.  I recommend others "call" the meal too, and count me

Precisely it is the point.

So, to be fair, there should be no chatter about who's going to lunch, deals on 
the internet (unless it's for geocaching supplies) or anything else that does 
not specifically deal with geocaching and geocaching alone. Lunch at the Greek 
church doesn't help me find a cache, so it is off-topic.
