I like to require and record visitor ID, and name tags.

I've had folks over at least 10 different times ( all AVS Forum members or my home theater customers ) and I've never had a problem.

A nice thorough pat down then a cavity search.

You do the security wand first though, right? No reason to get into a pat down unless the wand picks something up.

Remind me to never attend your G2G, or at least not without dinner and a movie first.

I think a best practice is to vet guests- check their AVS credentials/time on AVS, and perhaps meet potential guests at other G2G's in your area/within driving distance prior to hosting and inviting them to your place.

Probably not the best idea to simply post "I'm having a g2g on xx/yy/zz" and allow anyone who sees on the web to come.

Another good practice is to ask for AVS/other forum members to send a PM and ask for a spot, i.e. a private/semi-private invite list.
You want to retain veto power in a relatively polite way.

Agree with you here.

I held a gtg at my home May-2011, and I have 3 kids then ages 9/7/5.
Spring HEMI Meet - Saturday May 14th

The coordination was done here AVS, but invites and home directions only via PM or email.
It ended up loads of fun, and made friendships that continue to this day.

Nope, did not do a background check, check any offender list, etc.
I believe in the good in people.... still do.
This sums it up: “A stranger is just a friend I haven't met yet.”

Since then, I've let 9-10 people check out my HT one at at time when they ask via PM.
I like to talk to them on the phone, and get a gut feel for them, vet them out.

All have been truly positive exchanges in info and making new friends.
