TunedIn and Cross your Legs

Here is some additional advice to folks attending the April 28 TunedIn BBYO concert at Wootton High School in Rockville.

Don't drink a lot of fluids before you enter the stadium.  Alcohol is not permitted for those under the age of 21, and as a civic engagement activity, we expect the students to obey the law. 

But - we caution you not to drink soda, juices or even water before you go.

For a crowd of 3000, estimates on various calculators indicate that an event should have approximately 20 portapotties. 

Wootton's concession stand has some facilities - we estimate that they have about six.

Wootton's budget for the event allows for $500 for portapotties.

According to, an event should have one portapotty for every 50 people, and portapotties cost $75 to $150 for a one time event.

Wootton parents and guests - do the math.  Will an additional six portapotties be enough for the crowd?  What about the politicians and the BBYO VIPs from Northern Virginia?

Nice try, Mr. Doran and Ms. Taylor.

You should let your guests know that in addition to not parking in the neighborhoods, they need to cut down on their liquids too.


  1. Oh please. Enough with the bashing of this event. You apparently have never been to football games at schools like Seneca Valley, Sherwood, or QO where the crowds reglarly reach over 2000 and at times hit the 3000 mark. All held with exactly ZERO portapotties.

    1. 3,000 people without bladders. Those football fans are awesome!

    2. I've been to those events- and they open up the school. Wootton didn't get permission of the CUPF to open up the building.

      But even if Wootton opened up the building, you'd need to bring your own toilet paper. They remove the toilet paper from the stalls when the school is in use by others.

  2. What about the kids who come drunk?

    1. They just can't pee.

  3. Kids don't go to football games drunk? Exactly how naive are you?

  4. Can't wait for the picture of Doug Gansler coming out of a porta pottie.
