Customer Question

We are having a barrel race at a private facility. There are competitors we are banning based on previous conduct at other barrel races.
They are challenging us saying it is their "right" to compete

They are incorrect. They do not have a right to compete in your privately run contest. You could offer them a privilege to do so but there is no right and there is no way that they can compel you to allow them to enter and there is no way that they could sue you successfully for damages.

there is no jurisdiction in the right to work act or anything along those lines? This group of people are full on trouble makers which is why we don't want them anywhere near our event. They threaten every barrel race they go to that they are going to get lawyers involved. I feel that they are just bullying people and everyone is too scared to stand up to them. I just don't want to stand up to them and then get sued. We are not sanctioned with any race organization for this exact reason, so that we can keep the trouble makers out and make it an enjoyable event for everyone else.

There is no lawyer that is going to tell them they should sue. That is utter nonsense as they do not have a legal right to participate in this event.
