hmmm ... how do we decide if they are interfering? what if different 
members have different ideas about what constitutes interfering?

and, let's say we all agree that they are interfering- what then?

kids run around and make noise by being kids. nothing wrong with that. 
but if we are actually trying to rehearse as a band, it might mean 
playing the same stuff over and over again- talking things out, and 
doing other things that tax the patience of band members to say nothing 
about kids ...

i'm happy to discuss further. but if it's up to me (it's not) i'd like 
to say kids are fine when we're at stony but not when we're inside.

this is another version of the "are we a community band issue" ...
