    I thought I saw a post about this on the forum but couldn't find it and I heard this mentioned on NPR today too. I looked it up and found the video of the recent incident, but I also discovered that back in 1985 there was a guy named Wilbur Snapp (since passed away) got thrown out for doing the same thing. History repeating itself...

      I used to be an umpire. Not present in the amateur rules, but in the professional book there is a paragraph about ejecting the organist. The sample given is if the organist plays, "Three Blind Mice".
      I know it's been a good practice session when I pause for a quick break, return and the room has a faint odor of Hammond oil in the air that only occurs when the console has been running for hours & hours.
