Paul Milne from Edinburgh asked about ground rules and color cards.

Here's our Ground Rules which we post at every meeting:

Address each other with compassion.
Silence means agreement.
One person speaks at a time.
No personal attacks.
Share the air time.

We use the color card system regularly and really miss it when we're in 
a situation when it's not available.  It took us a little while to get 
comfortable with the cards, but now we're fairly good with them.  I 
think your concern about how many people do you need before the color 
cards are useful is right on target.  If you have around 5 or less 
people, the cards are clumsy and unnecessary, but when you get up around 
10 or more people they really help control the traffic in a useful way.
