Last night a group who typically run a contest opposite the beach namedropped the beach's late co-owner to get people over.
That was very low IMHO. We've made a point at Bacchus to simply put out RFL kiosks & promote the fight against cancer. Not grandstanding. Those who know, know, and those who don't may be giving in memory or honor of someone they know...
...Or in the hopes that someday in the future someone will live longer or cancer free from what we've done.
So these people, who have consistently made our Sundays a bit thin - and they have every right to do so - actually had the nerve to post in RFL group chat that they were dedicating their contest to the man who co-owned Bacchus. That's not right.
First: low. If they knew who he was they'd have known he was captain of RFL Team Bacchus and was on the group list for the beach. Don't exploit the death of someone you don't know to dis them and their memory and their family. Second: it's a fishing contest. This means they profit from it and so do 7seas with the sale of bait and rods etc. And the fishing contest pot. You cannot promote in RFL unless ALL purchases go towards RFL via RFL vendors and kiosks.
I gave their hostess a talking to. I'm no holier than thou type, but when the beach regulars are missing by a half and they single out one of our owners to draw people away from us and additional people to boot, well that's just sick.
Don't try to get attention or show yourself as some big deal by stepping on someone's grave. Or creating a hardship - on any level - for their surviving family members. If it isn't a personal friend of yours or a direct relative or a celebrity you're doing this for, then stfu.
