I might like to hear from some of the fighters. In the past, they've liked
having the musicians nearby. This year (I think for the first time), none of
the fighters came to me to say they enjoyed it. Maybe they're just used to
it, so didn't think to mention it. :) I'm not sure. But it might be worth
asking around a bit.
In the past, we haven't met in the RUSH area because we're such a
disturbance to the other classes. I think it makes sense for us to be away
from the other RUSH classes. I'd like to be in a spot where we can add to
the ambiance for people. (Noontime singing works ok in the RUSH area because
there are no other classes during that hour.)
I can also see an argument for having music near the Broken Harp. It's worth
discussing, I think.
