Volunteer 'newbies' wanted - test the site layout

I've been trying hard to make it simpler for someone arriving on the front page of Rum Ration to work out what it is and where to go to get to the core of it. Those being "unofficial, friendly, humourous, RM, RN community" and the forums, but I have my concerns about how well I've done it in places. Trouble is I've run out of innocents to test it on.

Could anyone with a spare un-RR-aware relative / friend hanging around please point them at the site with a loose question 'what's this all about?', watch over the shoulder and and see where they end up, how they got there and what their initial reaction was?

Thanks for your help.
