The privileges extended to the visiting members of other clubs under such an agreement shall be determined by the agreement and, if the agreement so provides, any club which is a party to such agreement may sell, offer for sale and serve, to any person who is a member of another club which is a party to such agreement, alcoholic liquor for consumption on the licensed premises by such person and such person's family, and guests accompanying them.
