2. If each member is alphabetically assigned a number from 1-50, use the first seven applicable numbers to pick the subjects. Roll a die to pick the starting point in the series.

4. Since there are only 50 possible subjects, numbers > 50 do not make sense. (Or possibly you could subtract 50, if that number is chosen.)

The alphabetical order is merely to assign numbers to the members.

The role of the die to pick the starting number makes the designation more random.
