"Can we, as a country, all agree

FEBRUARY A.C.E. NEWS
 
ON THE ORGANIZATIONAL FRONT
 
Our recent meeting on January 7th at Boogie Woogie's restaurant downtown saw presentation of all organization documents showing ACE as a legitimate non-profit agency in the State of Oregon. Other documents presented to ACE members were copies of the legal briefs filed by ACE legal team to start the long process of fighting restrictive legislation aimed at restricting our industry and reducing it's profitability. How many of you out their can stay in business with lower revenue than you now make? My suspicions say not a lot of you. The meeting saw election of ACE officials. They are as follows;
 
Claude Decorsi - President
Rick Kalles - Vice President
Christopher Lloyd Baron - Secretary
Augustina Mourelatos - Treasurer
Sheena "The Super Hotty" - Party Consultant
 
Our number one goal set at the meeting is the development of an ACE membership benefits package. Once developed and agreed upon, ACE members will set out two or three days a month to visit every non-member adult business seeking your membership in this organization dedicated to protecting you. Our benefits package will include at least one fundraising event in your business designed to raise cash for ACE legal battles and increase revenue in your business. Done correctly, your membership fee may be returned to you by the profits of your fundraiser making your admission to ACE free & fun!
 
ACE members are encouraged to send at least one delegate to each meeting. Each meeting provides a chance to share information on legal issues, recent law enforcement contact as well as the chance to network with other adult industry owners & managers. I have seen a number of fences mended over our post-meeting cocktail socials.
 
 
ON THE LEGAL FRONT
 
Both the legal briefs filed in response to the new distance laws in Nyssa, Oregon and the ridiculous "lewd behavior" (no self-touching of breasts etc.) pending in Multonomah & Washington Counties are in for a long haul. It could be up to a year before see rulings on these by the courts involved. Should the court uphold either one (or god forbid-both) you could start seeing some really stupid laws being enacted. For most of you barely hanging on financially- you will probably be put out of business. That simple. For the rest, constant law enforcement harassment will become the norm. Our most immediate goal is to raise the money for legal injunctions to prevent law enforcement ticketing until the legal issues are resolved. Our fundraising parties are one way to accomplish this.
 
What can I do?
 
Simple. Get involved. Entertainers with special skills/shows are needed to donate performances at our monthly ACE sponsored parties (see below for next party). Fire performers, well-known local entertainers are needed to perform and attend these fun events. Theme shows are especially welcome. Call the numbers below to see what you can do. Remember, you stand to lose the most by this restrictive legislation.
