We are the same as Mountain time in the USA   it's 4 PM here at this time.
Arizona does not follow Daylight times, so we are Mountain then Pacific

I'm confused. If Arizona doesn't observe DST then it uses Mountain Standard Time (GMT -7) all year. How are you Mountain then Pacific?
None of that tells us when the meetings start or how long they'll be.

Simple. Everyone else moves the clock, we don't. In the winter, we're Mountain time. In the summer, we're Pacific.

Sorry, maybe I am a bit thick but your post and the zoom links don't mention a time

It's not just you, I couldn't find any times either. I checked in a couple of times last night but was always told to wait for the host to start the meeting.

I think this could be a fun idea but for it to work we need:

1. A start time and an approximate duration or end time.
2. The timezone. In this case I would simply say, "Mountain Standard Time (GMT -7), year round".
3. It might also be fun to have a weekly topic or maybe a thread where users can suggest one.

Since this is a global forum, why don't you post times in GMT/Zulu. Exactly why it was implemented for the world's stage, no ambiguity.
