      Dog House did close and Rum Bum wasn’t even open when the incident occurred near to their place.

      But keep up with your tin foil hat theories .

    A community sports club does not need to equate with a having a bar and being a focal point for unlawful behavior. If such problems cannot be curtailed there is no justification for the bar to continue to operate. Clearly something needs to change. The 24 hour closure has not yielded desired result in the past.
