A swingers’ group’s plan for an event at a local gentlemen’s club has drawn the attention of municipal officials who say it may violate local regulations.

Strip Club Takeover (SCTO), a group that organizes get-togethers at such clubs for swinging couples and others, has rented Club Champagne on Crown Point Road for a Dec. 3 event. An Internet announcement of the “December 3 Takeover,” as it is dubbed, seemed to indicate what is planned may cross the line as far as local officials are concerned.

Both West Deptford Township Administrator Eric Campo and police Chief Craig Mangano said Tuesday they and others must determine whether the “Takeover” should be allowed, provided organizers don’t cancel it themselves.

“We’re in the process of reviewing that with the police department and the zoning office,” Campo said.

The announcement for the event was emailed by a source to the Times, Campo and others.

“SCTO is here to give you exactly what you want ... food, BYO, strippers and SEX all under one roof!” it said in part.

“You must be on the guest list to enter the door,” it said elsewhere, adding that “it is imperative that we all make sure to keep this hush hush!”

SCTO also told potential guests of hotel reservation discounts connected to the event.

Tickets to the Takeover, scheduled for 8 to 11 p.m., are $60 per couple and $40 per single female.

Several exotic dancers are also scheduled for the Takeover, the announcement said.

While Champagne — surrounded by the oil tanks of the shuttered Sunoco refinery — is BYOB, SCTO warned guests, “If you are bringing hard liquor, please be discreet in how you carry it to the door.”

Campo said he, Mangano and others are reviewing a January 2009 state Superior Court Law Division order regulating what is allowed inside the club.

“It governs what activities can take place within,” Campo said. “There are limitations. And we need to investigate whether there are violations. At face value, there may be.” ...
