My buddy went back to the area already (without discs) and stopped at HBH just to, idk, talk to John I guess. He said the entire part of the deck that had the hot tub is now gone. Nothing new built though, and John was saying a storm did it? Or something? Idk.

Was the festival or tournament cancelled or both??

New Update (I spoke too soon)
I did in fact receive a check in the mail yesterday for the deposit I dropped on reserving the cabin down by chesnut. I know it's crazy to many most likely but with this, I can say, other than a 1 day double booking 1 time like 5 years ago or more, I haven't had any issues with John.

Me neither! He's never struck me as nearly as shady as some people on here portray him. He's bad at business, but not out to intentionally screw DGers over.

Johnny's dreams, words and projects have always been ahead of his wallet.

This is a fair statement but until or if he screws me over I guess I can't tell people to stay away.
I have heard rumors of him not paying or screwing over the PDGA the year they held worlds there, but again, until I have proof or until I get screwed over or someone close to me, I can't knock it.

Just a commentary on his general orientation over many years. The underlying details might take longer than the "What is Par?" thread.

Those rumors extend beyond Worlds over a decade ago.

Chuck how much does he still owe you?

While I would love to hear detail, it's not needed. If these rumors are true (which I really have no way of proving they are unless someone can say something about it) then it's a very unfortunate circumstance and I will have to think more about going to those courses and spending money there.
I just spoke for myself and my group of 8-10 at most of guys who have gone there and never had one issue with John. We had 1 guy with issues with Abby but that's a different story.
