Bar License

    Wednesday 28 June 2006 was an unremarkable day except for one thing. AQSC finally got its long awaited new bar license.
Since the licensing laws were changed and we started hearing about what it would take, and cost, to apply for a new license, it has taken the best part of two years.
    Even after submission we were promised 'the certificate' by August 2005. That slipped to October 2005 and even then we only received a preliminary certificate. No mention of that in the application instructions.
    Eight months and three telephone calls later it arrived, five pages of it, all of which have to be displayed in the club house. I'm currently shopping for cheap certificate frames. You never know I might even get them hung up by the end of the year.
