Re: Seriously guys?
If you started it at 7 PM it would hard for the whole 'contest' part to take place, since a lot of key parts (including some of the band members) can't be on-site until later. Plus, a lot of the participants have jobs, too, and can't get out there until later. It was kicked around quite a bit. Plus BM likes to show sports at that time.
Case in point, I just got home from it. It's 1:27 AM. Even if I had a job with fixed hours, say 8-5 or 9-5, I could still knock out right now and get six hours of sleep. Plus, I personally don't drink when I am there. I drive to and from that party and just as a word of warning, MPD is out like flies in that area, and half of them are in unmarked vehicles, including an Audi A4, i.e. not just CVPI's with low-profile kits.
I'm not saying go out every week to it. I do because I'm paid to show up. But it's something different put on by a friend of ours, and it's worth the visit for sure. Heck, it's the only party in town where the guest can participate in it somehow.
