Byron bowlo pleads guilty to breaching liquor and club laws

BYRON Bay Bowling Club Ltd was prosecuted by the Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority and incurred a 'strike' under the Three Strikes disciplinary scheme after being caught breaching liquor and registered club laws.

Authority inspectors visited the club in April and were allowed entry, without being asked to sign the club register, in breach of the Registered Clubs Act.

During the inspection the inspectors observed a heavily intoxicated woman holding a drink, with club staff only intervening after the inspectors identified themselves to management.

The club was charged with one count of permitting intoxication on a licensed premise and two counts of allowing entry to a registered club without signing the register.

The club submitted that the intoxicated woman had consumed a large amount of alcohol before entering the club, and that only one glass of wine had been sold to her.

The club pleaded guilty to all three charges, was convicted in Byron Bay Court on September 13, fined a total of $1000 and ordered to pay costs of $500.
