A maxim: there is nothing worthwhile at all in the world that was ever done by more than thirty people. As soon as there are thirty people gathered together for any given purpose you have a Nazi party rally. That's not literally true. It's what I believe is termed a hyperbole. People sitting on stickily beer-splattered floors pretending to row a boat whilst singing tunelessly along to Rod Stewart's "Sailing"; people raising tatooed arms in unity whilst bellowing "Who are ya?" repeatedly; people line dancing, these are the things that are done when people assemble en masse.
