Whoa! Cubs out of control!

Something happened tonight that caught me completely off guard. I guess it
would be prudent to let you in on the history of our den to complete the
picture. As some of you may remember the previous DL was rather lacking in
commitment and didn't procure a meeting place. The first 4 meetings were
held outside in a local park and were not structured at all, very little was
accomplished. Just before we swapped ADL & DL positions he managed to find
us a temporary meeting place above a local bowling alley. The 3 meetings at
the alley went just fine.
We finally attained a permanent meeting place from our sponsor, the local
elementary school. The first meeting there was tonight in the cafeteria. It
seemed as though the second they entered the cafeteria it was yell, scream,
run and just plain play time. Quite frankly I was flabbergasted at the
change. It seemed the second they lost interest or weren't being directly
talked to it was back to play time. The ol' conduct candle didn't burn very
Has anyone else experience such a metamorphosis?? Has anyone found that some
locations work better than others for meetings? Our previous meeting place
was much smaller room, maybe 12' by 20', this place is easily 30' by 50'.
I'm hoping it is due mostly to the change and that things will settle down.
Any advise, prodding or sympathic story will be greatly appreciated.
