Many members of the club disliked the lack of variety and togetherness at the club. Although the club still had 12 members, some members were threatening to quit because each schedule was so short and there were so few people around each table.

Whoa nice try, you could be on to something here... but not this time.
I ran it through my solution validator and if you like at seatings 7

Keep trying! I'm well behind... my method is limited to solutions up to 9 people
