Thanks everybody for your input. I REALLY appreciate it. Here is what I have boiled it down to based on all the suggestions:
Shooting a group - two rows of people
Select Aperture F stop - F4
Select ISO - 400
Meter the scene
o Use P mode and set the F stop to 4, ISO to 400 and note the shutter speed
o More accurately use a light meter and determine the shutter speed
Switch to manual mode using F4, ISO 400, and shutter speed as determined by above
Turn on the flash and set it to minus 3 either by FEC or turning the dial on the Speedlite
Take a shot
o Adjust flash for desired light
o May have to use FEL Flash Exposure Lock so camera is not fooled by a white or dark object
o Adjust shutter speed for desired background lighting
Note - use a tripod if possible - and especially if the shutter speed is less that 1/60.
