How to help new and potential members

Example of suggested Members Map

As a new member tip toes into the world of bees, generally knowing very little other than the concept that keeping bees is very easy, they arrive at our club nights like little tiny virgins, sheepisly sitting at the rear so as not to attract attention to themselves.
Can a map be placed on a large board ( at the club nights only) showing the approx locations of other members ( with their permission ) so the new folks can actually see if any other members are close by to their address.
They could introduce themselves  as 'newbies' to the nearby member and so hopefully be invited to accompany them to monthly meetings.
This, I believe could certainly ease them into our social nights in my opinion.
See attached sample.
Just a thought to allow newcomers to network with others local to them.
