Well, First off. Please plan the Meet'n'Greets further ahead of time. 4-5 Days lead time is nowhere near enough time to insure a clear schedule for most people. I'd say at least 2 weeks notice is required.
Next, I agree that Dover is a decent spot. I don't think I'd be willing to drive any further south than that for a Meet that didn't have several hours of Scheduled Activities. My Bronco sucks up gas like a Hoover. However, now that I am inheriting a Mountaineer, who is a little better on gas, I can relax my fuel expenditures for longer trips now. But, the Mountaineer is NOT for Off-road Adventures.
Also, any Meet'n'Greets NOT in New Castle County on Weekday Work Days, will be out for me. If we have any meetings in NCC on Mon-Fri Evenings, then I can probably attend with enough notice.
Dover Meets on Saturday or Sundays with at least 2 weeks notice would be my preferance.
I agree that Dover is about as good as any for a gathering of the minds. If it's early in the day a coffee shop or diner would be good. Later would be a Dennys or something like it with some space for a small group. The ham radio club used to meet at a Pappy's pizza years ago and they usually set aside an area knowing we would be in. Days to meet, just about any day is ok by me but won't be able to meet for 3 months or so.
