Had a look at the crows board and one of their posters quoted something from the council without a link and then next post listed the 4 non negotiables and the first wasThey could apply for a temporary liquor license each week there's a game on
Surely they would be no objection to this
I assume the Uni clubs operate as non-profit organizations, you'd think it would be a very different story for a large corporate entity like an AFL club.Had a look at the crows board and one of their posters quoted something from the council without a link and then next post listed the 4 non negotiables and the first was
That isn't what the ACC CEO Mark Goldstone is quoted as saying in today's Tsier story linked above said. He said - "Firstly, no licensed facility in the parklands."
- No permanent licensed facility in the parklands
They are 2 different things. The crows don't need a permanent licence but it would be better than a temporary one or limited one, say only for game days when the team plays in SA or interstate or exhibition match overseas and for special club functions eg Player sponsor night.
It will be a **** fight but they will probably get a temporary / limited licence.
Adelaide Uni Footy Club and Cricket Club are on the parklands at Uni Oval 500m from AO, and about 5 years ago when they built the new lights and extended the Long Room, they obtained a temporary/limited liquor licence to open the bar on game day, 1 training night per week and for special club functions like photo day. If they have a temporary/limited liquor licence on the parklands, I can't see how the crows can't get one.
All AFL, SANFL, WAFL etc clubs plus AFL, SANFL, WAFL etc organisations have a not for profit income tax exemption under the Income Tax Assessment Act, so they will be treated as a not for profit organisation by the liquor licencing commission.I assume the Uni clubs operate as non-profit organizations, you'd think it would be a very different story for a large corporate entity like an AFL club.
The script is in.“In my discussions with the Adelaide Football Club, I have also made it clear that there will be non-negotiables surrounding any proposal,” Mr Goldstone told the meeting.
“Firstly, no licensed facility in the parklands, no increase in footprint beyond the size of the current facility and no significant change to the public’s access.”
There will be a **** fight about this. This is probably the biggest demand by crows supporters on their club to get a facility. Surely the council wont be able to stop them setting up the equivalent of the Port club that can hold a few hundred people there to buy a meal and drink.
These opportunities are great for port fans to sit back and realise how **** a coach Ken Hinkley is*. Pyke is a slightly above average coach and Ken ain’t fit to tie Pyke’s shoelaces.Tomorrow night will be everything Round 4 at AO should have been.
