Thing is, IMHO, if the Club breaks even or thereabouts, then the goal of the
function has been met...if there is some other lofty "monetary goal" and
"box sales" are eroding potential profits, then you have to again ask "what

members can dine out for free somewhere, or is it for the furtherance of the
If it's the latter, then any lost "profits" in the form of box sales or
"back of the car trunk sales" seems sorta moot to me...
...just saying, unless there is consistent monetary loss in these functions,
I can see the beef here, since the seller is kinda getting a free promotion

expense...if not, I don't see the big deal (again, assuming profit is a
secondary or tertiary goal)
