I agree with William, we need to encourage drilling before practice and even when practice has begun but the club is still getting organized.

What sort of drills would be appropriate? Press drills? Maybe some other types of drills? I'd like it if someone could actually show me some good solo drills to do at home (getting offtopic though).

Ringen is also a good idea. I actually do want to learn some ringen for the sake of ringen. Garret really did a number on me when he took me to the mat in a grapple.

I know some gripping and upper grappling drills the Other William taught us (OW was our Ringen scholar at my last club). They're a good warmup and good overall practice.

Surely.

They're very simple really. Two partners stand opposite one another, and grip the crook of the opponent's elbow with a V formed by thumb and the rest of the hand. Then they take turns pushing at eachother and breaking the grips with over and under twists of the arms. I'll demonstrate specifics next time, but the principle should be simple enough.

This builds up upper body strength, speed of reaction, a sense of balance, is a friendly enough contest - it goes back and forth without a clear 'winner' so it avoids the "dangit I'm losing" phenomenon. It seems very limited, but it's a foundational premise to all wrestling - control of grips, distance, and balance.

Sounds like a good plan Will, usually we do just kind of stand around but I think thats because a lot of us who get there early don't know too many drills that we can do solo or w/o weapons.

Not a problem!

I really wasn't aiming to criticize anyone. We just have so little time together that I want to help make it as productive for everyone as possible.

Sorry , missed this at first. Yes, feel free to organize a meaningful use of that time if you're there by yourselves (what yuo did last time was great, from what I saw of it). The same goes for other members reading this thread: guys, use your time if you get there early! That extra training time adds up fast.

How many times do I have to tell you? Don't talk about the casualties in public!

Our casualties would've ended up baked into a pie anyway a'la Sweeney Todd's girlfriend.
