This would be a perfect application for a Skypecast Meeting.  A new free 
service from, It alllows moderated or unmoderated distance 
meetings on any topic, broadcast to up to 100 people, with interactive or 
non- interactive options.  I am planning to work with this free program to 
enable remote meetings of the local  radio club.   Since it is for free, as 
are many of useful skype services, it might be worth looking into.  Actually 
I can't figure out Skype's business model, as they offer  a lot for free, 
and yet don't barrage you with adverts while using their site.

If someone sets up a Skypecast, please let us know how well it works.
