I am a bit confused as to what the citizens would rather have in there neighborhood when it comes to clubs.
We venture into the lifestyle on occasion. This is what we always find to be the case;
By virtue of the nature of there lifestyle, excess drinking is considered a big No No, and is rarely tolerated. This seems especially true for the guys. The same holds true for drugs, another No No. And prostitutes, why would any of the patrons see the need for them if the company of a nice couple or single can be had with just a pleasant smile and some small talk.
No folks, People with bad social and drinking habits are shunned pretty quickly and asked not to return. This is typically the case in or out of the clubs.
I'm thinking the desenters are just ill-informed as to the clientel typical of these clubs.
So here is a question to the uninformed:
Did you circulate such a petition when the old occupants started getting roudy and throwing stuff in the parking lot....or is that the crowd you feel comfortable with ??
PS.
Please excuse any spelling mistakes.

Interesting - all the posts disapeared!

Really was unfair reporting last night - Channel 10 keeps getting deeper and deeper in shite!

They talked about the high level of activity on this board quoting two posts against - and one in favor, which was really not typical of the answers, just a quip about not knowing about the club before. I didn't count the replies - and certainly there was some repetition from certain individuals - but it appeard that the majority of the posts were in favor of the club - 10 to 1 at least!

I wonder why an impartial news organization would stoop so low as to delete (or otherwise censor) the previous postings that I read here earlier and I also contributed a posting myself. I have followed this story from the beginning and would normally have applauded Channel 10 for maintaining a somewhat impartial position...however when certain posting in favor of Club Elite have disappeared Well Your objectivity comes into question!!

Actually, there are now about 3 forums at least. One for each story it appears, which will prove awfully confusing to some of the religious nuts.

There is ONE WAY TO LIVE--MINE.

There is ONE GOD--MINE.

THERE IS ONE FORUM--heh,... what the hell?!!!

It will be interesting to see what happens this weekend - i'm thinking the place is going to be packed from all the publicity - if not just from the pure curious neigbors. The club so far has grown on word of mouth. Four days of prime time news coverage - you could never buy!

As they say "...call me a bastard - just spell my name right!"

Are you all on crack?!!! It is NOT safe sex...condoms CANNOT prevent STDs when engaging in oral sex. As for the moron attorney - if this is not adult oriented - you would be able to bring children there...I THINK NOT. As for 10News, I don't care if 1,000,000 lustful idiots wanted it open, you should never change your story line to accommodate sex addicts.
How can you by definition be in a committed relationship and have any partner you lust after. That is not a relationship. You folks NEED to be committed. There is something so beautiful about making love to your spouse but when you take sex and pervert it into something as nasty as orgies - you need to get help.

citizen concerned I am not sure what you think you know, but I would rather have a swingers culb next door to me than a bar where people get drunk and cause trouble.

as for ( Two Cents ) you need to know what you are talking about before you open your mouth.( or write to a forum ) We personally do not have orgies, but my wife and I do like to add a little spice to our life from time to time. If you don't want to see this then don't go inside any swingers club. If you drive past most adult clubs you will see nude girls or some sex acts going on, but I have never seen anything like that outside of the swingers clubs in Tampa or Port Richie

I feel sorry for some people who go around and show there ignorance, by talking about things they know nothing about. The group of swingers that we know are D / D free and use protection to stay that way. Also CE is a bottle club but that does not mean that everyone who goes there is drinking. We go there to meet people not to drink.
So again citizen concerned I am sorry for your lack of information.

Off topic? It seems people are taling about religon. That certainly seems off topic to me. what does someone's personal belief or non belief about god have to do about people having a club behind closed doors doing what they want.
