amount of insurance required, with a minimum of $500,000 in public liability insurance for reservations or
events that include the consumption of alcoholic beverages that are not open to the public (invited guests

due to the anticipated number of participants, the nature of the event and activities involved and the physical
characteristics of the proposed site. If the event or reservation that includes the consumption of alcoholic
beverages and is open to the public with more than fifty (50) participants the minimum public liability
insurance required is 1 million per occurrence, 2 million aggregate. Such insurance shall name on the policy
