Club Fever changes policies

first_imgClub Fever announced several safety policy changes following the March 1 shooting outside the club in downtown South Bend, club owner Dee Davis said last week.The shooting occurred near the intersection of Michigan and Wayne streets as a crowd of people exited Club Fever in the early morning hours of March 1, according to a report in the South Bend Tribune.In response to this incident, club owner Dee Davis said Club Fever will institute new safety and emergency policies.“We are playing a [public service announcement] every hour that we are over 50 percent capacity that informs patrons of exit locations,” Davis said. “We are also scrolling that PSA text on the video screens.”In addition to these safety policies, Davis said Club Fever plans to crack down on underage drinkers and admittance of intoxicated patrons.“We are posting signage at the entrances explaining that presenting a fraudulent ID in Indiana is a class C misdemeanor and may be punished by fines and a one year suspension of driving privileges,” Davis said.Davis said Club Fever will enforce an “increased scrutiny of false IDs.”“It’s amazing how many Notre Dame students seem to come from Connecticut,” he said.Club Fever will continue to prevent already-intoxicated patrons from entering , Davis said.“We are posting signage at the doors advising that it is against state law for us to knowingly admit visibly intoxicated persons,” he said. “If you want to get in, go easy on the pre-game.”Davis said these changes will directly affect students for whom the club is a popular destination.“The biggest effect on the students will be that we will be more vigilant about admitting intoxicated patrons,” he said. “Students tend to want to save a couple of bucks and get blasted before they arrive, and some sneak in their own booze. If we see that, they won’t be admitted that evening.”Davis said the club will also help intoxicated students make their way back home if they are not admitted into the club.“We are posting notices at each bar outlining that it is against the law to knowingly serve intoxicated patrons,” he said. “If an employee determines a patron is intoxicated, we will assist them by calling a cab, but with our multiple bars, we cannot allow them to remain in the club.”“We are posting signage at each door with phone numbers for local cab companies.” Tags: Club Fever, Dee Davislast_img read more

On Compliance: The rules governing sweepstakes

first_imgA brief overview and a practical Steve E. StorySweepstakes are increasing in popularity with credit unions as key marketing tools. But sweepstakes are highly regulated and can raise significant compliance issues. This article is designed as a very brief overview on the law governing sweepstakes.A sweepstakes is a promotional device where chance determines who wins prizes. Conversely, in a contest, skill determines who receives prizes. Unlike either a sweepstakes or contest, in a lottery, players must contribute something, usually a small sum of money, to receive a chance to win something of greater value.These distinctions matter. Different rules apply to each type of promotion.To avoid transforming a perceived sweepstakes into a contest, credit unions should not include elements of skill in a sweepstakes. Likewise, sponsors cannot require sweepstakes participants to pay anything to participate, or else they may inadvertently hold an illegal lottery instead of a sweepstakes. (Most states have criminal statutes classifying lotteries as illegal gambling). continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Tony Abbott offers married couples voucher for counselling

first_imgThe Telegraph 3 September 2013Tony Abbott, Australia’s opposition leader, plans to save and strengthen thenation’s romantic relationships by offering £120 vouchers for counselling tocouples who get engaged and those already married.The vouchers will be offered to married couples for conflict resolution or parenting classes, while engaged couples could have pre-marital counselling. The Liberal party has proposed to offer about 100,000 “relationship vouchers“ as part of a one-year trial. The vouchers would be offered to same-sex couples despite the opposition of both Mr Abbott and his party to gay marriage. Mr Abbott, a staunch Catholic and the favourite to win Australia’s election on September 7, is married with three daughters but long believed he had a “lost son” from a relationship he had while at school and university. Years later, as a federal minister, Mr Abbott was reunited with the “son”, who was then aged 27, but DNA testing later showed the child was not his.center_img The vouchers were reportedly a pet project of Mr Abbott’s Liberal party colleague, Kevin Andrews, an MP who is a strong proponent of marriage and last year authored a book called Maybe ’I do’: Modern Marriage and the Pursuit of Happiness. The book says the biggest threat facing the Western world is not climate change or radical Islam, but the “continuing breakdown of the essential structures of civil society — marriage, family and community”.last_img read more
