Re: “AAS Figure-drawing Program

Chris is an excellent teacher! The classes are fun, well paced and offer inspiration beyond the physical page of your drawing. I highly recommend it either for your one time respite from the mundane, or a routine practice that I can only liken to a form yoga for your brain.

Re: “What If Festival

I had no idea this event was taking place today, that is until I noticed the street closed signs and began following the detour signs.

I am curious if this event was advertised at all or if any really. I ask this only because I heard nothing over the radio and I do not watch TV but I am on social networks and I do not recall hearing of this exciting event.

I would love to attend next year but I will more and likely forget unless I am reminded or hear something to trigger that memory. So if the event is advertised I would appreciate being pointed in the right direction so that my 4 children and I may attend.

Thank you,
Michelle

Re: “Public Free Day

My kids and I had a wonderful during August's free day. The docents were engaging and friendly. I was surprised and pleased by what I found. I like the direction the FAC is going. I found a lot of great work on the walls that previous directors kept locked up in the archives, such as Sargent's "The Count", paintings by Fechin, JF Carlson's work and more. I hope more good work comes up from the basement.

Re: “Charity Poker Tournament

Q: What makes a poker tournament legal or illegal?

A: The main distinction is whether the poker being played is considered “gambling.” For “gambling” to occur, three elements must be present: consideration, chance, and reward. These elements are sometimes expressed as “payment, luck, and prize.” The first level of inquiry, then, is whether all three of these components are present, because by eliminating any one of them, the activity would not meet the definition of “gambling” as set forth in Colorado law.

For example, if the consideration component is eliminated and no fee, buy-in or other money is required or solicited from the participants in a poker tournament, then prizes may be awarded to the player(s) who perform well in the tournament. This is how several organized poker tournaments are able to operate legally outside the three gaming towns. On the other hand, if an organization charges a donation, fee or other buy-in for a poker tournament or other event, then it cannot legally distribute prizes based upon who wins or plays well in the tournament or event. Such organization could legally conduct a drawing, door prize or raffle as long as the prizes are randomly awarded and are not tied to success in the tournament or event. Likewise, the organization could legally conduct the tournament for the pure entertainment value alone. By disconnecting the prize from the risk element of the poker or other event, such activity would arguably not meet the definition of gambling.

If all three elements are present, the activity is considered “gambling” and can only be conducted in the context of “social gambling” as previously defined.

Q: Are “charitable” poker tournaments allowed?

A: A misconception exists that if a poker tournament is for charity, or the prizes are donated, the charity could charge for the event. Such an event would still be illegal under Colorado law because the three elements of gambling listed above are present. Although the Colorado General Assembly approved a charitable gambling exception in the liquor code in 1979, it was repealed in 1983 because of the explosion of “charity” events, enforcement issues and problems encountered with the money actually going to the charities.

SO looking froward to this!

Re: “Evergreen Cemetery Guided Lantern Tour

I went on the tour last month and thought that it was worth every bit of the $10 to attend. The guide was very knowledgable and very informative and I learned so much more about Colorado Springs in that 2 hours than I had known in the last ten years. The Evergreen Society did a great job putting this tour together!

Definitely worth checking out. The volunteers were friendly and knowledgeable, and the post is a great place to connect with other vets. It's the oldest and friendliest post in town :)
