330Re: [West Constables] RE: March Crown update
- Mar 12, 2004We don't. We are not Police Officers, we can't ask for ID. Those
SERVING alcohol can & should ask for ID- on the basis of "No ID - no
booze"- but thay can't do anything else to enforce it. We- that is
to say SCA inc, or the Kingdom of the West- are NOT (I hope)
actually 'serving" alcohol- doing so would be a legal nitemare.
Private parties have very limited legal responsibility, and thus we
allow them to serve booze- but only if THEY check ID's. Private
parties could also say "no ID, no entrance". If we, as the KoW- take
on the responsibilty of checking ID- that means if anything bad
happens alcohol-wise- then WE are legally respsonsible. As it is- we
have no legal responsibility. This is why our Legal experts have
said a resounding NO!! to the idea of *US* issueing "over 21" ID
bracelets or stamps, etc.
Sorry, but I'd call the Society Lawyer before I did this.
