Paola Kansas and Miami County strike again???

..I was minding my own business and read the "Miami County Republic" newspaper last week. On Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009. What I saw was a declaration of breaking the Law as an advertisement. The Paola Chamber of Commerce decided to break the Law. How? They are doing a Casino Tournament with a "FORCED ENTRY FEE". That is Illegal in Kansas. I called the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission in Topeka Kansas at 1-785-296-5800 and spoke with Patrick Martin. He is the Chief Legal Council for the K.R.G.C.. I explained what I read and he contacted Amy Winterscheid. She is a Lawyer in town and one of the sponsors. She is at 1-913-294-3400. Other sponsors are, Sandy Nelson, 1-913-294-2311, Matt Winterscheid, 1-913-963-8263 and Justin Fulk, 1-913-461-4373. I know that Patrick called Amy because she was upset because I called Patrick and told me so. She changed the format and stated, "She was displeased with me". She further stated, "I should call her instead of the State from now on".

..Well, today I see they changed the advertisement. All 4 names and numbers have been removed from the advertisement, as published the week before. I am concerned that people who pay he 425.00 for the meal ticket will also be able to start the tournament at 5:30pm. Anyone who refuses to by a meal ticket will have to wait to participate in the Casino Games until those gambling finish their food. If it takes 3 hours for these people to eat and start the tournament, people outside will have 1 and 1/2 hours of play time to try to earn enough points to win the cash prizes being given at the end of the night. Those that pay a fee get 4 and 1/2 hours to earn points and those who refuse, by Law get 1 and 1/2 hours to earn points fore the cash prizes. This I find unfair if it happens. The advertisement is very vague. It seems to still force payment for Casino Game Playing.

..I will plan on being outside the event and updating what I see. I am tired of 2 sets of rules and laws. Other "NOT FOR PROFITS", Candidates and Organizations would love to have Casino Nights and Gambling Tournaments etc:.. They cannot. They are Illegal! I will up date what I see happening during the event. It is Sept 12th, 2009 in Paola Kansas, from 5:30 to 10:00 pm. It is being held at the Evergreen Events Center. Meal tickets are $25.00 single in advance and $50.00 at the door. Couple meal tickets are $40.00 in advance and $50.00 at the door. These tickets include, Heavy Hors d'oeuvres and $5,000 Casino Cash Voucher. The Paola Chamber of Commerce is at 1-913-294-4335.

..Amy Winterscheid called me and fielded some information. We will see what happens.
