Based on what you have written, there are some details which would need to be specifically provided prior to any opinon being given in response to your inquiry. First, what type of entity is the club? Second, which state is the entity formed within? Third, what are the by-laws and/or operating agreement terms? Fourth, what are the values associated with the prizes to be given away? These are just some of the items which would require answers to before an applicable opinion could be provided to you.
The above response given is not intended to create, nor does it create an on-going duty to respond to questions. Additionally, the response does not form an attorney-client relationship, nor is it intended to be anything other than an educated opinion. It should not be relied upon as legal advice. The response given is based upon the limited facts provided by the person asking the question. To the extent additional or different facts exist, the response might possibly change.
