Default KCBS rules: need some help defining this one

We just completed our 5th KCBS competition in Herman, Mo. and have to say we had a blast getting 3 walks. We have been trying to learn the rules along the way and stay "in bounds" but I am having a hard time defining what this rule actually means.
CAUSES FOR DISQUALIFICATION & EVICTION (of a team, its members and/or guests):
A. Excessive use of alcoholic beverages.
B. Serving alcoholic beverages to the general public.
A. I dont have much of a problem with that one, it's B. that I need some help on. Since our first competition I have told our friends and guests that come to see us and visit that we can not serve them alcohol from our coolers. This was really hard in Herman with the wine, Jack, Margaritas, and Fat Tire abounding. To me it just makes it hard to have a good time with them especially at events where they are not selling and won't let the general public bring it on site.

So are friends and guests to your cooking site considered "general public"? What do they really mean by that statement?
Your help, comments, and suggestions are much appreciated.

i think by serve they may mean selling to the public. Not invited guests drinking your beer for free.

I remember reading that rule, I remember forgetting that rule about 2 seconds after reading it. I suggest the same. Arn't your visitors really members of your team anyway? According to rule two, Each team shall consist of a chief cook and as many assistants as the chief cook deems necessary.

I think the local police would deal with someone actually selling alcohol in a Park or public place. If that's what they mean then there would be no "real" limitations.

I think the spirit of the rule is not to just give it away or sell it. I do not consider friends and family general public.

Decatur - I am from Decatur, born in St Mary's but lived most of my kid life in a country house just outside of Macon. Have a ton of family over there. DO you know any Fortners or Obriens?

Nope I don't think I know either family. Wish I did though. I have lived in the Soy City all of my life. Just now getting out and telling the rest of the World about our little town, thru BBQ.

If yo know them they are your friends not general public. This has always been my rule to follow. I have met people at some contests who instantly become my friends and no longer fall into that public category. Make sense?

It's a RULE!!! AKA DISCLAIMER. Take it for what it's worth . It would be difficult to enforce.

I guess they'll have to DQ every team at the Royal this weekend. Either that or send the 115,000 spectators home without a drop. That'll go over well.
