@Rainstorm77:  The contract wording seems like legalese, which I’m not fluent in so you would need another bee for that. 

I’m much more worried about the combative manager.  I’ve flat out avoided any vendor like that, and my life has been so much better.  I would consider a resort with a more pleasant staff if that’s an option.

I would find another place. I think I personally would feel uneasy about that. Some other Bees with more experience with this kind of thing, may have a different opinion.

@Rainstorm77:  I probably wouldn’t sign with them if I didn’t like the GM in the little interaction I’d had with him thus far.  

Those 2 clauses are in our contract too.  We didn’t think it was a big deal, I think the wording is slightly different on the damages – I think its due to our party or our guests that we’re responsible.  

And the noise clause doesn’t state that we’ll have to pay for any compensation to other guests, just that we can be charged under the contract for excessive noise. 

We did have other things that had to be worked out.  We’re on our third version of the contract (mostly it was things we’d been quoted that hadn’t been discounted properly, or the dates for various payments were different than originally agreed upon, their numbers in the quote were off, etc.)  We are signing (tonight!) with those 2 clauses.  Is there any way you can negotiate with them if you still want that venue?  Ie: suggest a change in the wording in order to make it clearer?
