In previous posts I read that it is illegal to charge to particapate. but has anyone thought about this idea?
instead of just hosting rockband night, what if we put on a tournament.
Would this be illegal to charge to enter a tournament?
I've been in the planning stages of putting together some guidelines for a multi bar tournament series with a huge cash payout for the winners.
I'm having a hard time believing it's ilegal to pay to enter a tournament. Or should I say to charge a fee to enter.
This thread is what I've been looking for as far as people interested in a nationwide organization of rockband and GHWT promoters.
but I guess the first order of business would be the the legal aspects. I operate a free Poker league which operates in bars weekly. For the poker I can not charge to play because poker is considered gambling. The bars pay to host the tournaments. I was hoping to add this promotion to my list of bar promotions.
could someone explain why it is illegal to charge to enter a tournament?
I would think it was no differnt than bowling, darts, or pool which all have huge tournaments and all charge to enter.
Please reply if you have knowledge of the legal aspects here.
