I dunno, Minnie's Mate. That picture looks a hekuva lot like Massachusetts in July to me. The only difference is we'd have to add a few thousand mosquitoes under the awning here in MA.

If there are that many people around who can't sleep because of the heat and humanity, might as well have a night spot set up and let them commiserate over a cold drink. If the entertainment, or nightcap tent, is in a remote location away from the trailer/motorhome sites, would it really be that much of a nuisance to people sleeping with windows open?

WHY NOT?
Looking at just one small aspect of the 'WBCCI Nightclub' discussion, I say, "Why not put together an old-time rock & roll band?"
I have played with both the WBCCI Concert band and the WBCCI Dance Band.
They are made-up of WBCCI members who volunteer their time & talent to create a temporary, amazingly high quality, band just for the International Rally.
I love the big band sound but I also love other types of music. I grew up with 50's, 60's, & 70's Rock and love it.
I suggest this could begin as a notice to those attending of rock & roll "jam sessions". I am sure there are others in WBCCI who are accomplished in this era of music. Anyone interested would provide their own equipment and we'd see what could be assembled.
If interest, and results, merited; later years could bring arrangements similar to the WBCCI Dance Band: they rehearse daily for two weeks prior to the starting date of International Rally. I'm not suggesting this.
Just a place where we could get together, rip up some oldies, and have fun (hopefully, folks would leave the "ego" at home).
This should result in some cool after-hours (post Big Band) music for the evenings.
How much more "garage band" can you get?
I mentioned in a post, a couple of years ago, that the present WBCCI Bands had to start somewhere, so why not try it with some newer music. "Jam sessions" may be a way.
Anyway, back to the original thread.

Putting together an old time Rock and Roll band sounds great. Someone would need to volunteer to head that up and get it organized. If this year is going to be formulative jam sessions, someone would need to volunteer to get that going. It could be official or unofficial. What do you think? Would you want to head this up? If so, I'll gladly pass on the idea if you like.

Okay, for Perry what if we propose an event called something like "Night-Streamers". Have a DJ and ask them to play a little of everything: oldies (50-60's), classic rock, maybe a little disco, country and contemporary. (One member suggests she'd prefer no hip-hop or rap.) People can bring snacks to share if they want and their own drink if they like. Have it run something like 9-11 PM? I also know of a musician that might be fun, but I'm not sure of his availability.

Yea! Finally some ideas coming forward rather than the same old political mish-mash. Yes, we are all aware of the internal problems with WBCCI. Let us take the high road and put forth some really concrete suggestions to show the 'old boys' that the 'new kids' in town know how to have a good time, organize it and share it! I would bet that there is a sea of talent in the general membership of WBCCI. We are the WBCCI and we will show them. If you were to start polling the membership, I mean really take it to heart, you would find many extremely talented musicians in our ranks who would love to JAM with other members for a night of memorable music. I would bet you $1.00 that with our membership we could put together a rotating jam session of two hours (or more) of organized players which in turn would present a large musical variation for the attendees. BYOB and your dancing shoes!
