Non-profit private clubs and country clubs - In order to qualify for this exception, the club must satisfy all of the following criteria:
Right. Which he doesn't.
a) The club isn't operated by the members. I've never seen GCB's financials, have you?
b) GCB also isn't a non-profit. I dunno if GCB makes a profit or not, but I know the goal is to! And I seriously doubt he's re-incorported under G.S. C55A to be a non-profit, just to appease the ~25% of the population that does smoke.
Seems to me it will all come down to whether the state puts forth the resources to enforce the ban.
Why wouldn't they? On the 3rd+ offense they start collecting $200. And the general public will be doing the "inspections" for them by registering complaints. It's a win-win for the Health Department.
