SOCIAL QUARTERS RULES
This has always been the policy of the Moose International but not enforced as well as it should have been:

The front door will be closed unless staffed by a Moose Member or an Officer. Membership card access is required.

The House Committee will be enforcing this rule.

* ONLY MEMBERS IN GOOD STANDING (NOT IN ARREARS) MAY PURCHASE ALCOHOL.
* GUESTS MAY NOT PURCHASE ALCOHOL.
* FOR LODGES THAT HAVE THEIR OWN GAMING LICENSES THIS ALSO TRUE FOR PULL TABS AND BINGO.
*THERE IS NO GAMING, WAGERING, OR SPORTS BETTING AUTHORIZED IN THE SOCIAL QUARTERS AT ANY TIME WITH EXCEPTION OF BINGO AT LODGE 1088 IS PLAYED WITH STATE PERMIT AND DISPENSATION FROM MOOSE INTL AS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC WITH ALCOHOL.
*GUESTS ARE ALLOWED ONLY TWO VISITS (non bingo) BEFORE THEY ARE REQUIRED TO FILL OUT A MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION.
* FOR ALCOHOL PURCHASES YOU MUST SHOW YOUR MEMBERSHIP CARD ON THE FIRST DRINK TO THE SERVER.
*If you are not current in your dues you will not be allowed to participate in Moose Horseshoe, Golf, Bowling, and Dart Leagues until your dues are paid current.

CHECK POLICY - Only members may write a check at the Lodge. The maximum allowable amount is $50.00 per Family (Husband/Wife). One check will only be accepted per day.

Why is this being done now?
1) If you go to any other Moose Lodge you are required to present your card to the server or pull-tab sellers. We should be no different.

2) Some members will not pay their dues because their membership card has meant little in terms of access.

PLEASE BE KIND TO THE SERVER. This is not their call as they are only doing what they are directed to by the House Committee and Moose International's Territorial Manager. We have asked the servers to use common sense in enforcing this.

We ask for your cooperation in this issue.

Reminder, we do not accept Business checks other than rentals or donations, 3rd party checks, or money orders.
With thanks,
The House Committee
