In our community there is a large outdoor mall that is very popular. On weekends there are typically a few bands playing outdoors and it is packed. On Monday nights they have the stage sitting there and no one using it. It made us think… we should use it! So we had two all-area clubs there. The first one was a hot dog eating contest, it was promoted as the North Phoenix Hot Dog High School Eating Contest. It was a ton of fun. In the Spring we did a Price is Right club where the contestants came from the audience.
To our surprise the mall people were happy to let us use it. Also it allowed some parents to check it out while not embarrassing their kids too much. We also had a lot of people asking us about YL. And yes, we did a club talk and everything. I’m sure we will do something like this again!
