Each volunteer must wear their wristband (given to them at check in) at all times while working in a booth. Any volunteer in a booth without the proper wristband received from the Volunteer Check-In area will be asked to leave the booth. When your shift is over, you must remove your wristband and give it to your Booth Captain. It is the Booth Captains responsibility to ensure that the beer booth is operating in the most efficient manner. This may require him/her to move workers from one job to another.

It is the Booth Captain’s responsibility also to designate which job a particular worker will perform and to ensure that the most responsible workers are responsible for beverage tickets.
G. TRAINING OF WORKERS
It is the Booth Captain’s responsibility to train each worker and especially, for the workers responsible for beverage tickets, to ensure that each worker is performing his/her responsibilities properly. Be sure the beer pourers are instructed that each beer should have approximately one-half inch of foam. Any worker who is unable to perform his/her responsibilities should be assessed. If the worker is intoxicated, they should be instructed to leave the booth immediately. If the worker is physically unable to work, they should be given another task or released.

1. As stated previously, all beer Booth Captains and workers must be at least 21 years of age.
2. Each beer booth worker is responsible for determining the age of each customer. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL AN INDIVIDUAL UNDER THE AGE OF 21 BE SERVED ALCOHOL. This requirement is extremely important to your workers since anyone who actually serves alcohol to a minor can be held criminally liable. Therefore, instruct all of your workers that if they are in doubt as to the age of a particular customer, to require proper identification before serving alcohol.
3. ID Check: Each worker must ensure that each customer is 21 years of age or older.

Proper identification shall be required of all customers where there is any doubt. Proper identification includes driver’s license or state ID with photo (make sure the photo matches the patron). The cash control volunteers selling the beverage tickets will put a wristband on each age verified customer. It is the cash control volunteers responsibility to place the wristbands on a customer’s wrist. However, if a customer purchased a beverage ticket and did not receive a wristband there will be wristbands in the beverage booths. Please verify the customer is of the legal drinking age and wristband them before serving their beverage. Wristbands must be properly applied to prevent transfer to another person. There will be a different color wristband each night.
4. If you are aware of any minor consuming alcohol, even if you did not serve alcohol to that minor, you should contact the nearest police officer immediately.
5. Please read carefully the attached sections of the Ohio Liquor Laws regarding the serving of alcoholic beverages to minors. PLEASE DO NOT JEOPARDIZE YOURSELF, YOUR ORGANIZATION OR THE ENSHRINEMENT FESTIVAL. BE SAFE…CHECK FIRST. Any complaints by patrons should be handled courteously.

Because your organization is assisting in the dispensing of alcoholic beverages, awareness of and compliance with the Ohio liquor laws is necessary. Please thoroughly familiarize yourself with the below points. We all have a responsibility to ensure compliance with Ohio liquor laws. The Department of Liquor Control typically sends inspectors to events such as ours to ensure such compliance. If any of the Ohio liquor laws are violated, both you and your organization could be held responsible.
The major points of Ohio’s liquor laws are as follows:
1. No person under the age of twenty-one (21) shall purchase beer or any other intoxicating liquor. Please note that this law does make any reference to whether you had knowledge that the person was under twenty-one (21) or not. Therefore, you must act very carefully to ensure that any customer is twenty-one (21) years of age or older.
2. No person under the age of twenty-one (21) shall order, pay for, share the cost of, or attempt to purchase any beer or consume any beer either from a sealed or unsealed container or by the glass or possess any beer in any public or private place.
3. No person shall knowingly furnish any false information as to the name, age, or other identification of any person under the age of twenty-one (21) years of age for the purpose of obtaining or with the intent to obtain beer for a person under twenty-one (21) years of age by purchase or by gift.
4. No person under the age of twenty-one (21) shall knowingly show or give false information concerning his name, age, or other identification for the purpose of purchasing or otherwise obtaining beer from any place in the state where beer is sold under a permit issued by the Department of Liquor Control.
5. Every place in the state where beer is sold shall display at all times in a prominent place on the premises a printed card which shall be furnished by the Department of Liquor Control which shall read substantially as follows:
WARNING TO PERSONS UNDER AGE
If you are under the age of twenty-one (21) under the statutes of the State of Ohio, if you order, pay for, share the cost of, or attempt to purchase, or possess or consume beer or intoxicating liquor in any public place or furnish false information as to name, age, or other identification, you are subject to a fine of up to One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) or imprisonment up to six (6) months or both.
6. Whoever is found in violation of paragraph 1 shall be fined not less than Twenty-Five Dollars ($25.00) and no more than One Hundred Dollars ($100.00). Whoever violates paragraphs 2, 3, or 4 shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree.
In summary, failure to comply with the liquor laws can result in severe consequences. As a result, exercise great caution when serving customers. In virtually every case, you should obtain proper identification. Proper identification is defined as a driver’s or commercial driver’s license. Proper identification also includes an identification card issued by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles or a Deputy Registrar pursuant to Section 4507.51 of the Ohio Revised Code. Additionally, you may also accept a temporary identification card issued pursuant to Section 4507.51. Please note that these temporary identification cards have expiration dates on them and are invalid after the expiration date. An invalid temporary identification card is NOT sufficient identification. Identification cards are issued to people who either do not have a driver’s license or who lose their driver’s license. If a customer who has been asked for identification cannot produce one of the forms of identification defined above, you should not serve that person an alcoholic beverage.
Once you obtain a proper form of identification as defined above, you must determine the true age of the person buying the alcoholic beverage by checking the identification presented. You must also compare the description of the person in the identification card with the appearance of the buyer. Finally, you must ensure that the identification presented has not been altered in any way. If you conclude that the person is under age, or that the identification card relates to someone other than the person presenting it, or that the identification card has been altered in any way, you should not sell that person alcoholic beverages.
If you have any questions concerning the above, please contact a member of the Canton Kickoff Celebration Committee as soon as possible.
EMERGENCY MEDICAL PROCEDURES FOR CANTON KICKOFF CELEBRATION
During the hours of the Canton Kickoff Celebration there will be a Paramedic Unit stationed on the corner of 4th and Court Avenue. The Paramedic Unit will be able to carry out Advance Life Support Techniques. These stations will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
If someone becomes ill at your location, contact any law enforcement officer, fire official or committee member and they will radio for communications to contact Medics to respond to your location. For minor injuries with your staff or the public and there would be no danger to them to walk to the Paramedic Unit location, that is acceptable. DO NOT walk people to the emergency care vehicles if they should feel weak or faint. Keep them at that location and call for the teams to care for the person. If care is needed, 911 should be called; (if using a cell phone, in order to save valuable time, ask for “Canton City Fire”).
Thank you for your cooperation.
