Dear friends, distinguished associates, and fellow rally attendees...
Given the reshuffling of events (Laser show on Saturday instead of Friday), we are attempting to properly evaluate the ROI (return on investment) of bringing our "tools of music" for Friday evening's festivities.
Last year, the overall gathering on Friday was a bit
as attendees arrived/ate/left, which was somewhat understandable given the varying time of check-in for attendees. From the band's perspective, we would not care to have a repeat.
While the pavillion is still reserved for an 8:00 "gathering" on Friday, our site is quite centrally located in the midst of the rest of the units and conveniently located next to the playground.
From a logistical point of view, it would be much less trouble to set up between our site and the playground compared to lugging everything up to the pavillion (especially if rally attendees would rather not take the walk).
We have a volume knob which works both ways, so sound (or too much) need not be a problem. Bring a chair and your favorite snack/beverage and enjoy the music.
If enough people prefer the pavillion, we can go ahead as planned. But if a laid back evening around the fire is preferable, this is less work for us.
YOUR THOUGHTS PLEASE!!!!!
