Someone told me that a box fan is only $10 or so. I would be willing to
donate a fan if it's less then $30, and can grab something at Walmart.
Though I don't plan to arrive at Pennsic until the Fri/Sat just before
If it really only costs $10, having it stolen wouldn't be as big a deal,
but those locking points sound great.
As for the sound/modernity issue, I'm not sure how to address that.
Personally, I would take being cool and comfortable over the annoyance of
having such an appliance. It may get more students out of the chairs,
fanning themselves, and more on the dance floor.
We could also put a cover over it for teachers who are offended by such
instruments, or hide it under a table.
The barn already has a (big) fan, fyi. I'm not sure if the musicians were
ever bothered by it.
