With the current temps in the US at an alarming high, our dance hall has been running hot, with their one A/C unit cooling to 75-78 degrees while dancing. We keep it pretty windy, with lots of fans (quietest ones in the hall are small Lasko units and louder ones in the back).
That being said, at what point do you cancel the dance because of heat? Dancers are already complaining and all we can do is keep it windy. Of course, we could cut our losses if minimum capacity of dancers are not coming because of the heat. In the past & at another hall, we used to cancel all of August because of heat, but I don't know how you can make that call because you really don't know how it will feel (or how many dancers will attend) until you get there.

We are starting to collect pictures and copy for performers coming to play
for our dances. I imagine that someday soon, we may start collecting
videos. These assets come to us in a variety of forms - docs, pictures,
links to web sites, text pasted into an email. Is there anyone who has any
experience handling such materials who can advise a good way to organize
We have a club Google Apps subscription, so Drive would appear attractive
initially. However, we've had trouble figuring out how to organize
materials in Drive in a way that shares the organization. In addition, we
need a way to find the materials that have been stored.
