Bob Hall, LLC and Anheuser Busch, working together with the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office, Maryland State Police, the Calvert Alliance Against Substance Abuse and the Calvert and St. Mary’s Counties Community Traffic Safety Programs are sponsoring a Designated Driver program to be held during the annual opening of the Tiki Bar.  The program will run Friday, April 25th and Saturday, April 26th from noon to 10:00 p.m. 

The first 150 designated drivers who register will receive a free Tiki Bar T-shirt.  Every designated driver will win an instant prize from a long list that includes Major League Baseball (Orioles and Nationals) tickets, Tiki Bar and Grill SGT BBQ gift certificates, can coolies, sunglasses, coolers, beach tables, and folding chairs.  Designated drivers will sign a pledge card, which will be entered into a drawing for four grand prizes.  This year’s first prize package is valued at $500 and consists of cash, gift cards and a one night stay at Holiday Inn Solomons.  Prizes two, three and four range from $350 to $50 in cash and gift cards.  The registration booth is located near the Tiki Bar entrance.

Sheriff Mike Evans will draw the grand prize tickets during a ceremony at the Sheriff’s Office on Monday, April 28th at 1:00 in the afternoon. The public is invited to attend.

The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office and Maryland State Police, as well as law enforcement from neighboring jurisdictions, will be conducting DUI saturation patrols throughout the weekend as part of Maryland’s “Checkpoint Strikeforce - Over the Limit, Under Arrest” campaign.  These enforcement efforts are funded through the State Highway Administration’s Maryland Highway Safety Office and will continue throughout the spring and summer months.  Areas where a high number of DUI arrests or crashes have occurred in the past will be targeted for enforcement efforts.
