No, the bunkhouse because he said at the time it was the only "cabin" available.

Yeah Jbright is from my group. I really hope he gets his refund. We have decided instead to do Mont du Lac.

Don't sign anything he gives you and don't send him money up front.

Also stay away from Abby.

The last time we were there we stayed in Honka. A few of our group were partaking in some green on the deck and the comment was made


"Do you want to get Abby? Cause thats how you get Abby." much laughter ensued as they were much more circumspect in their usage for the rest of the weekend.

Be we were also mostly chubby old dudes who are all married so she didn't really try to get her hooks in too hard.

I would say I agree, but was also told we couldn't reserve anything without sending money. I sent the money in the winter before all of this. Also to be fair as much as people say they've got screwed my John in some way, our group has literally never once had that happen in the 3-5 years we have gone there for a weekend. He typically always gives us some carts on gold and is around to bring more wood for the fires, again never had an issue.

Now that there has been an issue, very good likelyhood I will not return for a full weekend unless I decide to just show up last minute and worst case camp if no cabins are available.

I like camping more than Honka/cabins anyway. Honka is kind of gross - the only useful thing about it is a large fridge. Besides that, I would rather just camp. Other than the Infra mess in '16 and cops showing up last year, we've never had issues either, lol. Never any issues with John personally, at least.

Here's what he just told my buddy in response to "Can we camp there yet?"

"We are camping on hill. 99% in compliance. Just awaiting on some "paperwork, technical stuff". Courses all mowed up. Place looks awesome! Just not really using Chestnut yet."

Lol, 99% in compliance.

99% in compliance means not in compliance and the county will come down hard if they find out.

What the hell is with all the random quotes John puts in all his posts/messages? That always leaves me scratching my head, among many other things...

Lol that's too funny. My understanding is that John doesn't own the chestnut area what so ever so I'm sure that chestnut will most likely never be available to hbh again.

If you're curious who owns various parcels on the hill and campground, zoom into the area between Poppe Rd and County C just on the north side of Mile Rd. http://ashlandcowi.wgxtreme.com/ Roger Juaire is an investor from St. Cloud who helped John out in the early 2000s (shortly before I got involved developing those disc golf courses) by buying up much of the hill and all of the campground area. Roger's purchase happened soon after his father-in-law passed away who had been John's partner in creating the partly developed ball golf course on the hill.
