    Tokens is normally an easy get out clause.

    If any of you guys can run with this idea it would be great. I think that trying to get this organised officially right now would be near impossible :D

    Other people seem to have better contacts than me to get this together, but I will do if no-one else fancies it. I am a trained barman after all!

    Tokens system is what they used on the Malvern Challenge/Sun Run scouting events for leaders and 18+s.

    50p a token, which were a bit o paper wiv sommat printed on it. 4 tokens got youse a pint of Doom bar, if memory serves.

    Don't want to rain on anyones parade BUT swapping tokens that have been paid for,for beer IS still charging for alcohol albeit indirectly .
    Besides even IF you gave it away you'd still need a licence to consume it .

    Not for a second saying don't do it BUT whoever is organising it needs to do so knowing the score .

    Private party with a donations pot IS a slightly different thing (Though that's still a grey area ;-)

    The whole bull**** around organising events is a pain in the arse ....AND can put paid to a lot of fun
    BUT the person that IS organising it stands to be in a heap of doo doo IF anything was to go titsy .

    We are lucky in that we tend to use a couple of venues that cover us with their balanke PL insurance ...as that's another ball ache .
    We did run a couple of events at a disused quarry using a disclaimer system BUT after finding out that legally the disclaimers were more use as toilet roll
    We went off the idea lol.

    As I say don't want to rain on anyones parade BUT .......

    I think the way they were doing it at the one I went to was that we were buying raffle tickets, and every ticket won a pint. Or something like that.

    They'd need a licence for gambling then .....
    Trust me I've looked into just about every loop hole .

    Councils don't like folks having fun ....AND the government don't like missing out on tax for anything .

    Strictly speaking even a pint for a donation needs a chariddy collection licence .

    Just to be sure that people are aware. We have a had an issue with seating and tables with the organisers so we need people to bring their own chairs as a minimum.
    We are trying to get as many tables as possible but any extras will help massively.

    I think we have a pasting table we can bring. I also have a couple of folding trestles if there is a spare door or boards available.

    I've asked Sarah to pick up a table from Decathlon, the folding ones are pretty cheap there and will need one for my trip anyways.
