LCB VISIT

LCB VISIT

THANKFULLY, ONE OF OUR DEAR FRIENDS ANONYMOUSLY CALLED THE LCB CONCERNED THAT WE WERE ILLEGALLY SERVING NON-MEMBERS. WE WERE SERVING NON-MEMBERS DURING OUR, WHAT WE THOUGHT, LEGALLY SPONSORED SUMMER CONCERT SERIES. UNFORTUNATELY, THE LCB HADN’T INTERPRETED THE AMBIGUOUS GUIDELINES THE SAME WAY WE HAVE THE PAST FEW YEARS AND DETERMINED THAT THIS PRACTICE WAS UNACCEPTABLE. SO, WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK THIS CONCERNED FRIEND FOR KEEPING US IN COMPLIANCE.

SO, IF YOU ARE UNAWARE WITH THE PROCESS, WHEN THE LCB FOLLOWS UP ON A COMPLAINT THEY COME TO THE CLUB, UNANNOUNCED, AND CONDUCT AN INSPECTION TO INSURE YOU ARE IN COMPLIANCE WITH ALL ASPECTS OF YOUR OPERATION. I ALWAYS, AND STILL, MAINTAIN OUR CLUB IS OPERATED IN COMPLIANCE TO THE BEST OF OUR UNDERSTANDING. AGAIN, THERE IS A LOT OF AMBIGUITY WITH THESE LAWS AND REGULATIONS AND THEY CHANGE QUITE OFTEN. SO, THE OFFICERS SCHEDULE A FOLLOW-UP WHERE THEY REQUEST ALL OF OUR RECORDS INCLUDING MEETING MINUTES, BYLAWS, ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION, HEALTH INSPECTION, LIQUOR LICENSE AND RECEIPTS, ALL FINANCIAL INFO AND SOME OTHER THINGS.

FORTUNATELY, WE RUN A CLEAN OPERATION. HOWEVER, THEY HAD SOME FINDINGS, OR LEARNINGS, THAT WILL ALTER HOW WE OPERATE THE CLUB. THE FOLLOWING LIST SOME OF THE ISSUES:

  1. OUR WEEKLY DRAWING WAS DEEMED ILLEGAL AND IS DISCONTINUED
  2. OUR DICE GAME WAS DEEMED ILLEGAL AND IS DISCONTINUED
  3. OUR SPONSORSHIP FOR OUR SUMMER CONCERT SERIES DOES NOT FIT INTO THEIR INTERPRETATION OF SPONSORSHIP. THEREFORE, FROM 9/11/19 GOING FORWARD, OUR EVENTS, UNLESS PUBLISHED OTHERWISE, WILL BE FOR MEMBERS AND THEIR GUEST ONLY!
  4. APPLICANT’S FOR NEW MEMBERSHIP MAY ENTER CLUB EVENTS WITH RECEIPT , HOWEVER, THEY MUST SIGN IN AND MAY NOT PURCHASE ALCOHOL. THEY MAY CONSUME ALCOHOL PURCHASED BY A MEMBER.
  5. WE NEED TO PERFORM BACKGROUND CHECKS ON APPLICANTS TO ENSURE THEY ARE OF GOOD MORAL STANDING
  6. ALL MEMBERS NEED TO CARRY MEMBERSHIP CARDS ON THEIR PERSON DURING ALL TIMES.
  7. BASKETS OF BOOZE, OR BOOZE OF ANY TYPE, CAN NOT BE GIVEN AS RAFFLE PRIZES.
  8. CURRENTLY, OUR CHRISTKINDL NACHT AUCTION CANNOT BE A LIVE AUCTION AND NEEDS TO BE A RAFFLE OF SORTS?
  9. NEED TO CARD ALL MEMBERS AT THE BAR.
  10. MEN’S SOCCER NEEDS TO SUPPLY US WITH ROSTER OF OPPOSING TEAM. THOSE MEMBERS MAY PURCHASE ALCOHOL AFTER THE GAME. THEIR FAMILY/FRIENDS CAN NOT!
