"The Crucible is dedicated to providing a safe gathering space for all of our members and their
guests. In an effort to provide our community with the safest space possible, beginning March 1,
2018, The Crucible application process for all new memberships and all membership renewals
will include an ID search of the public US Department of Justice and the DC Metropolitan Police
Department registered sex offenders database. Additionally, all non-member guests requesting
admission to events at The Crucible must present a valid government-issued photo ID which
includes date of birth, and guest entries will be checked against these databases as well. Should
you be unable to present current, valid ID, you will not be granted access to The Crucible. No
exceptions will be made in this regard. Anyone who is registered on these databases will be
denied membership and/or entry to The Crucible. We appreciate your patience as we add this
important step to our membership and admission process."
