Despite a recent change in rules regarding how residents stand in line for tickets to the annual Craig Kiwanis Club play, ticket sales were not overly affected Friday, club member Jeff Corriveau said.
The tailgating tradition, which also involved residents having alcoholic beverages while they waited, came to a close this year because of concerns about potential liquor license violations.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4265, which hosted Friday’s ticket sales, contended that residents having open liquor containers on post property put the organization’s liquor license at risk.
The Kiwanis play, an annual event that lampoons community residents and events from the past year, is scheduled for March 5 and 6 at the Moffat County Fairgrounds Pavilion.
“We sold substantially about what we sold last year for original ticket sales,” Corriveau said Monday.
Craig Ford hosted a blind auction Feb. 5 for tables March 5 and 6. The Friday table sold for $500 and the Saturday table sold for $1,000, Corriveau said.
Tickets still are available for the event, ranging from individual tickets to tables of 12.
Individual tickets sell for $15, and tables sell for $180.
Residents looking to purchase tickets should call Corriveau at 824-9441 or visit Craig Ford.
