    Most of the early Dunkers were also members of The Minneapolis Athletic Club, so it made sense to schedule meetings there. Meetings were held at the Athletic Club until a change in the management structure in 1999. Meetings alternated between the Athletic Club and the Minneapolis Club that year, and meetings moved exclusively to the the Minneapolis Club in 2000 when the Athletic Club closed for renovations.

    Unlike later meetings, the first meetings were informal breakfasts where the members were able to engage the guests in conversation. The Physician was expected to present a "Eulogy," to which the guest would respond. That format gave way to today's introduction / remarks / questions system. In the mid 1950s no guests were permitted.

    The breakfasts began at 7:45 and were not to go beyond 8:45. The Coaching Staff didn't know how many meetings they were going to be able to schedule in a year, but prospective members were told that they were expected to attend a minimum of three meetings per year. In order to take attendance, each member was asked to sign in on an oversized sheet.

    The featured guests were photographed, and those photos were attached to the of the sign-in sheets over he guest's signatures. Over the years the organization collected hundreds of signatures which would become highly valued in later years.

    The first season, consisting of six meetings, stretched from December 1948 to the end of 1949. Topics included professional baseball, college and professional basketball, the Ice Follies, boxing and University of Minnesota football. The most meetings ever in a season was 22 in 2005.

    Since 1990 the group has set a target of approximately 18 meetings per year.
