    Talking Camping Rule #19: No Drums/drumming/drum circles/percussion

    Upon reading the general rules for camping, there is a random rule stating: "No Drums/drumming/drum circles/percussion".

    Was there a drum circle that went out of control one year? How does a drum circle get out of control in the first place, and was anyone there to experience this, or what do you think might have happened?

    I thought this was amusing! hahaha

    There was something of the sort in 2007. Police were called, helicopters hovered, etc... at least, that's what I heard third hand. Anyone who was there, please chime in.

    That's when they ran over that girl from Mexico.

    In 2009 people stole the empty water jugs, formed a mob and ran around the campgrounds banging on them till the sun came up. It was a scene.

    from what i recall, people were raging against the machine maaaaan. totally changing the system. not content to be sheeple conforming to your systematic rules about sleep (or courtesy towards neighbors)


    or something like that, sounded pretty lame. basically idiots overreacting and cops overreacting and it just snowballed from there.

    there was a fairly entertaining thread about this before. But, yeah, gawd I hope no asshole brings a bongo to this Santa Cruz Island camping sausagefest next weekend I'm attending. It's the last thing I want to hear being trapped on an island with twelve guys for four days. I'm going to take up smoking cigarettes again being so bored.

    Does this mean my troupe of bagpipers will be unwelcome in the campground?

    no, they are welcomed for the novelty. Ten minute limit though. Just enough time for people unknowingly of scottish decent to do the nasty.

    A mid-coital bagpipe serenade always gets me hot.
