Yup!  there'a a good doc on how to do a key signing party online somewhere
(don't remember anything about it though).

Found the link: http://www.cryptnet.net/fdp/crypto/gpg-party.html

 - Something like submit names and finger prints to a central person.
 - Each attendee gets a printout of the whole list at the party (via the
   CP), and brings their own key information themselves.
 - One at a time, each person reads their known-good fingerprint for all
   to verify against the compiled list, and checkoff "fingerprint good".
 - People line up, then one end of the line starts back down the line,
   while every other participant stands with their forms of ID in front of
 - As they go, each person checks off on their printout list that the
   forms of ID match the person, checking off "ID good".
 - Everyone goes home and signs keys, sending them to the person and/or a
   public key server - for those with both checks satisfied.

 - this gets the checking done quickly, and lets the signing not take up
   the whole evening.

This lets people not worry about bringing their private keys (or laptops)
with them...  which has inherant security risks.
