Dave you make some very good points. But I still prefer formal nights.

Just think, as the Country Club casual people force the lines to do away with formal nights, what will be next? Will the cutoff shorts & muscle shirt crowd then want change from casual attire?

In polls & discussions like this, I always express myself as favoring formal to prolong the inevitable.
