Yes - it's true. But really, it's not a bad thing! The board decided several years ago that the MOA should not eliminate a potential rally site from consideration, if Beer-Garden sales might not be a part of the contract. These days, many of the bigger facilities have existing contracts with concessionaires. It seemed foolish to NOT consider a site, for this reason alone.
SO: here is what I posted in the other thread:
Billings Metrapark has a contract with the Breakfast Exchange Club for all beer sales. Everyone you see working in the Beer Garden will be local VOLUNTEERS, raising money for their local charities and social needs. I hope everyone at the rally supports them generously.
From their WEB PAGE:
The Breakfast Exchange Club, a Montana Not-for-Profit corporation, chartered by the National Exchange Club, commits its membership resources, in a collective and cohesive fashion, to creating a more sustainable community through:
1. Support of social needs and problems, with a special emphasis on youth.
It goes on from there, but you get the idea. These guys are great, and passionate for their cause. This is a winner for everyone.
