Everything is going so well with the Privateers at the Fairgrounds Arena.
Good crowds, well run facility, a local business responsibly selling alcohol while the city ran the food concession, actually making some money on hockey nights to help keep the facility open at other times for various youth and family events.
Now some faux controversy and the experts are scratching their heads (or whatever) and at the last minute Council is told the state wants solely the same entity selling booze and food....
Now that's not the case at any other festival or fair or other event where the devil's brew is served. Lots of laws are routinely winked at for the not-for-profits. Now a local business is struggling to meet a February 1 deadline.
It's enough to make your head explode.
