Case study: Acacia and TKE invite the entire Greek community over to their house in early April. They make it a BYOB event and will provide hamburgers, hotdogs, and peanuts for all the guests. Guest are forwarded an invitation and informed about the 6-pack rule. During the event they have a volleyball tournament in the yard. People are talking, playing yard games, and eating food. There are 4 sober monitors checking people in, distributing the beers (brought by attendees), running the volley ball game, and watching the house. Everyone’s having a great time until…..Give one scenario and list how itcould have been prevented.
A TKE is found on the porch passed out. No one knows how he got drunk when he only brought 6 beers. While having the event outside was fun, there was no way to control who came to or leftt the party. (Member was sneaking off to his room for pulls)Scenario 1
The volleyball games gets intense and one person spikes the ball into someone else’s face. They have reconstructive surgery and sue the chapter to pay for the operation. Despite having insurance, your rates go up, because there was no liability release form for active events.Scenario 2
An Acacian gets serve burns the face after a freshman unknown to the group drops their beer into the grill putting out the flame. Worried about getting in trouble they leave without telling anyone. When it was restarted the built of gas causes a minor explosion. The combination of alcohol and flames caused an innocent person to get hurt. Plus the grill could have malfunctioned at anytime.Scenario 3 (30 min)
