Okay, I see by Aingeal's follow-up that quite a few of us somehow misunderstood the goal of this proposed change. If the concern is not litigation but public health department scrutiny, why does anyone believe this will ever happen?
Has any SCA function ever been subjected to a public health inspection?

If we're really concerned that someone will get sick from bad water or bad oranges handed out by our waterbearers, what makes you think the scenario described here protects the SCA? Any decent litigator will point out that, by funding the supplies, the group tacitly approved the waterbearing activity. The very existence of this email from the treasurer clearly demonstrates that the corporation is attempting to insulate itself from an activity that it, too, approves. So, removing the official status of the waterbearers and relabeling their moneys accomplishes nothing.> > Your damned if you do and damned if you don't.
