We would like to set some facts straight.
Kids' Night was last Saturday, July 12. Aumiller did not donate any money or prizes. We also had a sandwich sale as a fundraiser and Foust's wife, owner of Rhonda's Country Cookin', refused to buy any sandwiches because she was not asked to make them. Talk about being childish!
As for the bathrooms, they are very nice and were in definite need of being repaired. We greatly appreciate what Aumiller and his crew did. However, they are not completed yet, and there are some problems that need fixed. The ladies' room attendant has to carry a bucket full of water in order for the one toilet to flush. The stonework on the front has not been done either. We have no problem with him wanting to do the lights, but we would like the first job completed before starting another big project. He has started the lights as you could see on Saturday, and they did make a big difference.
As for the Renninger contract, we as a board have the right to vote and decide on whom gets the contract. The Renninger's got the contract. The board voted on $600 or 25%, whichever is greater. The Renninger's have the right to decide who gets to open.
As for the racing part, not everything can be blamed on the president. We have officials around the track. The decision was agreed upon by several officials. Not just one person makes a call.
The finances at Port Royal are much better than in the Graybill era. We are definitely not skimming off the top. Have you seen the economy lately? We can only do so much when we are trying to pull ourselves out of a hole from previous members' mistakes (over 10 years ago).
If you have any questions or complaints, try going to the president or other members in a calm manner. Yelling and screaming usually does not get a person anywhere. Also, know your facts before you start badmouthing!
