Bartenders will be working themselves to the bone (many work 12-18 hour shifts on Picnic Day) for practically minimum wage. If the bartenders of Davis were looking at little-to-no tips on Picnic Day as a result of a wristband system, no one would be getting anywhere near the service they want. It also encourages people to drink more because they'll have absolutely no way of keeping track of what they've "paid" for. Credit card receipts or cash help many drinkers keep track. Many students take cash with them to the bars and when they're out, they're out. On top of that, some bars (like Bernardo's) have a specific draw while others (like Bistro) do massive amounts of business due to their size. There would be no way to fairly distribute money between bars.

No bracelet means no access to a bar for you. This helps to limit the amount of drinking problems at bars, increases the capitol available to pay for increased law enforcement and makes it easy to see who is legit and who is not right off the bat.

Sure there is a lot of drinking on campus, but Picnic Day is not merely a huge party. It is the annual open house for the campus. Alot of prospective students come to visit on Picnic Day and indeed more than a few decide to come because they get a good feel of the campus from Picnic Day. Other than the CoHo, Unitrans and the commercial units, Picnic Day is the most efficient ASUCD event/program. When you consider how much money other ASUCD units such as Entertainment Council or various programmatic commissions gets (over $70,000 for EC) and the number of people who attend those events they pale in comparison. Picnic Day only gets around $15K-$20K from ASUCD to put on a campus-wide event that more than 100,000 people attend. That's pretty good. Also, for those who are very "socially-oriented", Picnic Day is a great way to showcase the university and a great recruiting tool. Additionally, considering that the event has jumped from 50,000 to 100,000 in a relatively short period of time and has resulted in a rising costs to put on the event, ASUCD funding for Picnic Day barely keeps up with the increase in inflation. It is not for a lack of money. Other units, which affect far less people have been created (and sometimes disbanded) or given larger budgets in a significantly short time in comparison to Picnic Day . Although this certainly raises another issue that I do not wish to debate here, but just purely as an example Lobby Corp which was created in 2002 has gone from a budget of $6,000 to a budget of over $25,000 in just a few years. In addition, ASUCD does not even pay for a majority of the cost and they are always talking about how they want everything student-run. As you can tell, I am very passionate about this particular topic. So I hope that ASUCD stops giving Picnic Day so much trash and recognizes the benefit of Picnic Day.

There might be other options, such as the city's noise ordinance, public endangerment, or any existing law that makes illegal behavior, well, illegal. Do we know what the arrests on picnic day were actually for? Were the problems caused by alcohol, or were people just using it as an excuse to behave badly regardless? --["Users/IDoNotExist"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Picnic Dayhttp://daviswiki.org/Picnic_Day2010-04-25 12:58:10CovertProfessor <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Picnic Day<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 70: </td> <td> Line 70: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ --["Users/CovertProfessor"] I had similar thoughts to ["Users/hankim"].

People have gone great lengths and risked much to get drunk in the past, a little ordinance limiting sales probably would not stop people from getting drunk before noon. At most, it might allow more minors to get some alcohol (bars and stores will not sell to minors, but people do hand out booze pretty carelessly).</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Picnic Dayhttp://daviswiki.org/Picnic_Day2010-04-25 10:51:44WilliamLewiswhat the petition is really about <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Picnic Day<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 54: </td> <td> Line 54: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> On April 21, the Sacramento Bee reported that campus and community leaders are considering canceling UC Davis' annual Picnic Day due to the high number of arrests and mayhem during ["Picnic Day 2010"].

Sure there is a lot of drinking on campus, but Picnic Day is not merely a huge party. It is the annual open house for the campus. Alot of prospective students come to visit on Picnic Day and indeed more than a few decide to come because they get a good feel of the campus from Picnic Day. Other than the CoHo, Unitrans and the commercial units, Picnic Day is the most efficient ASUCD event/program. When you consider how much money other ASUCD units such as Entertainment Council or various programmatic commissions gets (over $70,000 for EC) and the number of people who attend those events they pale in comparison. Picnic Day only gets around $15K-$20K from ASUCD to put on a campus-wide event that more than 100,000 people attend. That's pretty good. Also, for those who are very "socially-oriented", Picnic Day is a great way to showcase the university and a great recruiting tool. Additionally, considering that the event has jumped from 50,000 to 100,000 in a relatively short period of time and has resulted in a rising costs to put on the event, ASUCD funding for Picnic Day barely keeps up with the increase in inflation. It is not for a lack of money. Other units, which affect far less people have been created (and sometimes disbanded) or given larger budgets in a significantly short time in comparison to Picnic Day . Although this certainly raises another issue that I do not wish to debate here, but just purely as an example Lobby Corp which was created in 2002 has gone from a budget of $6,000 to a budget of over $25,000 in just a few years. In addition, ASUCD does not even pay for a majority of the cost and they are always talking about how they want everything student-run. As you can tell, I am very passionate about this particular topic. So I hope that ASUCD stops giving Picnic Day so much trash and recognizes the benefit of Picnic Day. Picnic Day is THE oldest ASUCD unit and it will outlast everything else.

The student board is supervised by a SPAC advisor. When I worked for Picnic Day, our Chairwoman seemed to deal with ASUCD for some financial business, hiring personnel, and to fight over office space with other ASUCD units. The majority of our support came from SPAC, Student Affairs, and various other departments including the Alumni Association and the Chancellor's Office. At the time Picnic Day was the unwanted step-child of the ASUCD Senate &amp; Executive Office who completely missed the point of the open house concept and wanted to cut Picnic Day because it wasn't "a money maker". This issue seems to come up in various forms every other year or so depending on the slate in power.<br> + <br> + FYI - Picnic Day is called the largest student run event in the nation because, as far was anyone knows, it is the largest student run one-day open house event in the U.S. When it's sunny Picnic Day attracts between 50,000-60,000 visitors to campus. It'd be kinda cool if someone could scientifically confirm both the "largest student run event" claim and estimate the number of visitors to the next event.<br> + <br> + I don't know why it says that the City of Davis co-sponsors Picnic Day. The city doesn't contribute any money, man power, or help with the planning of the event outside of granting permits.
