Dear editor, For more than 10 years, I have been a patron of Nashville North. It truly did have the best line dancing in the province, the best sized dance floor and the most welcoming and safe environment I have ever seen in a bar. In those 10 years I never once seen an intoxicated person out of control. The bouncers kept the floor clear and the bar area safe. It was a good time, every time. Patrons were friendly, respectful, helpful to each other with the dancing. It was extremely rare to see conflict anywhere in the bar. I met my wife at Nashville North and we have been married for almost nine years. Nashville North to us was good clean fun. A time to go and get away from the pressures of the week and just have fun. One of the best things about Nashville North is it brought all age groups together. And we came together like a family...teaching each other how to dance, laughing with strangers, tripping over someone else's feet, getting those last few steps by following someone else from a dance you've been trying to learn for months, meeting new people from 19 and up to their 70s! We met people from all over Ontario there, from other provinces, the US, and even a few stars came to hang out. Toby Keith stopped in one night to enjoy the scene and signed a few autographs. Did you know that a movie was filmed in our country bar as well? This bar was truly the "Nashville" of the North. How could it be forced to close its doors? Nashville North had a loyal and fun loving country community, that now has nowhere to gather. It is a shame that we have lost this wonderful place. There truly, isn't another place like it. The recognition for our town, the stress relief for people and the great fun on the dance floor is something that is needed. Nashville North is a true loss and we will miss talking, laughing, but most of all dancing, at the greatest country bar in Ontario! We request that the Alcohol and Gambing Commission of Ontario (AGCO) reconsider its decision and reopen our home away from home-- Nashville North. Bruce and Deanna White, Georgetown (Editor's note: The AGCO revoked Nashville North's liquor licence. The decision to close Nashville North was made by its owners.)
