Yacht Club Complies With Liquor Law

Information provided to the Barrington Town Council on Monday by the BAY Team about yacht club employees apparently was outdated.

The Barrington Yacht Club is in compliance with the town’s liquor-training requirements for servers, according to Bob Manchester, commodore of the club.

Manchester provided the following statement on Friday afternoon after he confirmed the club's compliance with Town Manager Peter DeAngelis Jr. earlier in the day:

“Statements were made at the November 5th Barrington Town Council meeting suggesting that a number of establishments, including the Barrington Yacht Club, were not in compliance with certain liquor training requirements. As it relates to the Yacht Club, the statement was not true.

“All current employees requiring training, whose names were provided to the Town Clerk’s office as required, had received such training as of Monday, November 5th. Apparently the BAY Team representative who reported to the council had an outdated employee list and, therefore, thought individuals no longer employed by the Club had not received training.

The Barrington Yacht Club takes its responsibility to comply with state regulations and local ordinances very seriously and supports the work the BAY Team is doing.”

The Commodore spaketh: “All current employees requiring training, whose names were provided to the Town Clerk’s office as required, had received such training as of Monday, November 5th. Apparently the BAY Team representative who reported to the council had an outdated employee list and, therefore, thought individuals no longer employed by the Club had not received training." This may be one of the most elliptical statements ever issued by a Yacht Club Commodore in any boat basin anywhere. "The BAY Team representative ... thought individuals no longer employed by the Club had not received training"? I don't mean to ruffle the commodore's epaulets, but this isn't not clear and it's not rubbish up with which we shall not put. What the Commodore should have said is that the Barrington Yacht Club recognizes and agrees that proper training of the servers is ESSENTIAL because some of the patrons of the Barrington Yacht Club are so old that they fart actual dust particles. We now return to our regular programming, already in progress.

DOUBLE ENTENDRE: ambiguity of meaning arising from language that lends itself to more than one interpretation. Example: We are wasting valueless time here.
