Without wishing to open old debates, that predate my involvement with I think the description on the website is a bit confusing - as 
the OP has demonstrated.  It is easy to latch on to the word Wednesday 
without seeing the "day after". OK - I am dyslexic and don't read 
everything properly.

It would be clearer (IMHO) if it said something like "We meet on 
Thursday with date between 2 and 8 of the month".
