Hard to say, since MM never said exactly what he was doing, in legal terms. Just extremely vague and evasive posts. If he has or will have legal control over the property, directly or with others, that's one hurdle. (And, I agree, if he doesn't, that's probably an impossibly high hurdle).

The next hurdle is revenue, and begs the question of whether it's revenue to maintain the course, or revenue to turn a profit and/or give a return on investment. The first is much easier to imagine.

So, does MM own the place or not? If not, all his off the wall cryptic comments sound a lot like something JJ would say.

He may have negotiated a deal with other property owners there, or perhaps with future property owners.

I'm not holding my breath on that. But he wouldn't have to actually own it, to be heading up a restoration. He'd just have to know of a change of ownership, and be connected with it somehow.

Default We will prevail.

That just leaves myself and Tick on The Hill. Tick has a building up on his lot and I have something that got left for dead by JJ when we got shut down. I am not giving up, I can't. I might be worn down, but I'm not beat down. I got too much invested to surrender to a schmuck that has not much remaining in his life. They have all left him.

Well, back to work, lunch is over. SLIC. OUT!

What Slic said. But besides that. There are a lot of half truths being spouted by people here who know something but not enough to be saying things with authority. I was there the day the very first baskets were put in the ground. I have loved the possibilities of the place ever since. I bought lots there because I believe it is the best disc golf venue in the world - or can be! Things are changing for sure. There is a lot of uncertainty. Getting things straight was never going to be easy. The legal situation relating to control of the courses and also control of the individual building lots like mine is complicated and will take some time and effort to get made right. we are just getting started on the building lot issues.
So MM got sick and people start freaking out. I'm not writing off MM. He has a verbal agreement. I'm okay with giving him the time to get well and follow through - or if his deal cannot go through there's time enough to freak out then.
But like Slic said, we are not giving up.

Just a verbal agreement?

He really made it sound alot further along than that...

Perhaps the cryptic hope-inspiring posts were indeed premature.

Maybe MM should have gotten further in the process before spouting off about it. Sounds like he's done far more harm to himself than good.
