I guess this is why Justin's response is so shocking. We've never given money to someone lacking so much integrity that we have to resort to belittling tactics to get him to step up and even be accountable.
I suspect there will be ironclad written terms from now on, at least to the directors that we haven't tested yet.
I completely understand. I was told by several people that at the country cup, Gordy handed him a check and said it was a donation. I heard it was kind of a big presentation
. I don't know for sure cause I couldn't quite make that one. Now I'm sure that if he did say this, that he mistakenly said it, but I don't know how Justin would know this. He obviously didn't mean to say it.. I am hoping that Justin will repay whatever he can. The club needs the resources as we move forward.
Written terms should be given whenever money is lent. This is in case legal action needs to be sought. A written agreement is between two party's, the SDGA and one other person. The agreement that was written to lend money to the USDGC reps would not hold water in court. Lucky for us, we lent money to good people who will pay us back!
