Has anyone done business with Glenn Patch, "The Patch Group", G.E.P. Inc., or GSI Corporation - they claim to be a high-end real estate developer/builder in Branson, MO and claim to have developed a "Harbor Village" in Bigfork, Montana. They are based in Titusville.
When checking them out I came across three lawsuits against a G.E.P., Inc./Glenn Patch-controlled company in Flathead County, Montana, arising from Glenn Patch's Bigfork-based development, "Harbor Village":
a) Smith, et al. v. Rocky Mountain Recreational Communities, LLC (#DV-06-356A)- suit for breach of contract and fraud; judgment for Smith.
b) White/Keown v. Rocky Mountain Recreational Communities, LLC (#DV-07-223A)- suit for encroachment, trespass, and fraud; judgment for White/Keown.
c) Ewing v. Rocky Mountain Recreational Communities, LLC (#DV-07-212A)- suit for breach of contract; judgment for Ewing in the amount of $1.25 Million.
This Glenn Patch-controlled entity, "Rocky Mountain", then filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy on May 3, 2010 in the Butte District of Montana - case #10-61045-RBK.
Any further info is welcome.

Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Theater will be sold on the steps of the Taney County Courthouse in Forsyth May 5, after its owner defaulted in payments of debt, according to legal notices.
Glenn E. Patch, listed in court documents as a resident of Titusville, Fla., is the owner of the theater and several other Branson properties, including the nearby Area ’57, Ramada Inn and the building that houses The Rowdy Beaver restaurant, which have also been posted for sale in legal notices.
The May 5 auction will include the theater, Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Grill, Club ’57 and the room that once housed the ’57 Heaven Auto Museum, before the collection was auctioned in 2009.
“Legends in Concert,” the tribute show that performs at the theater, is owned by an unaffiliated company and leases the space. It won’t be affected by the sale, according to general manager Jeannie Horton.
“It absolutely won’t affect us,” Horton said.“It’s a state-of-the-art theater and we’re thrilled to be here. We’re looking forward to a fabulous year.”
The Brett Family Singers, who take the American Bandstand stage for morning shows, also have a lease, Horton said.
According to records in the county assessor’s office, the entire property is valued at more than $4.2 million.
Patch is also accused of failing to pay on millions of dollars worth of promissory notes in two Greene County lawsuits filed in December of 2010.
One, begun by BankcorpSouth in Springfield, alleges that Patch, trustee of the Glenn E. Patch Revocable Trust, defaulted on a $5.2 million promissory note, of which $4.9 million is still owed. In the plaintiff’s petition, the bank’s attorney asks for the court to order the amount paid in full, along with interest and fees.
One part of this case has already been decided. The plaintiff also asks for an order preventing another defendant in the case, Morris Group II Inc., from exercising any control over the furniture, fixtures and equipment in the Ramada Inn.
The plaintiff’s attorney argues that the bank, as the note’s senior lienholder, is entitled to these items in order to recover some of the funds owed.
Court documents show Associate Circuit Judge Jason Brown ruled in favor of the plaintiff in this matter in March.
The judgment filed in the case indicates Patch has not yet been served with the suit.
The other case also concerns a default of payment by Patch on a promissory note, this time one worth close to $2.4 million. The plaintiffs allege that Patch defaulted on loan payments due in October and November.
Their petition further states that under contract stipulations, they are entitled to be paid in full the note’s remaining balance, which is more than $2 million. No hearings have been scheduled in this case, according to Missouri Case.net .
Patch, who was in the magazine industry in the ‘80s, is a well-known developer in the Tri-Lakes Area, although he has also been involved in projects across the country. He was the founder and mastermind of Murder Rock Golf and Country Club and The Communities at Branson Creek.
Patch’s company, GEP Inc., developed Branson Creek for decades before forming a partnership with McMillin Communities, of San Diego, Calif. Murder Rock is now also overseen by McMillin, according to company press releases.
Patch was also known for his collection of 66 showroom-perfect convertibles, hardtops and pickup trucks, which were displayed for three years at the ‘57 Heaven museum.
The president for GEP Inc. could not be reached for comment as of press time.

I am not surprised about this when it comes to Glenn Patch. His company in Branson, Dick Clark's American Bandstand employed illegals and he was taken to court over that.

He also lost a Missouri Department of Labor case where the Dick Clark Grill paid 27 employees under the minimum wages.

Dick Clark under the Managing Partner Chris Lucchi ignored American workers over cheap illegal ones. They also fired two employees that were complaining about the situation in 2007

I worked for Glenn Patch in 1988-1989 as a sales person for Computer Shopper. Glenn took good care of everyone in the company. He was the kindest most generous boss I have ever known. I know he was taken advantage of by people he trusted. The company growth was exponential in those days and he made sure everyone benefited from his good fortune.
I believe he put his trust in the wrong people and he was bamboozled!
I wish Mr. Patch the best!

Bank of America, N. A v. Glenn E. Patch TrustIN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI SOUTHWESTERN DIVISION
BANK OF AMERICA, N. A., PLAINTIFF,
v.
GLENN E. PATCH TRUST, GLENN E. PATCH TRUSTEE, GLENN E. PATCH,
DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Richard E. Dorr, Judge United States District Court
ORDER Before the Court is Plaintiff Bank of America, N.A.'s Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. 11).For the reasons below, the Court GRANTS the Motion.
BACKGROUND
Plaintiff Bank of America, N.A ("Plaintiff") filed this action against Defendants Glenn E. Patch Trust u/a dated May 2, 2005, as amended ("Trust"), and Glenn E. Patch ("Patch") as trustee and in his individual capacity (collectively referred to as "Defendants") to recover on loans extended by Plaintiff to the Trust. The Trust entered into a loan transaction with Plaintiff which resulted in the issuance of a Loan Agreement, an Amended and Restated Deed of Trust Note A ("Note A"), and a Second Amended and Restated Deed of Trust Note B ("Note B"). After Defendants failed to pay the amounts due under Note A and Note B, Plaintiff filed its Complaint (Doc. 1) against Defendants, which contains two counts. Count I is asserted against the Trust and Patch as trustee to recover on Note A and Note B. Count II is asserted against Patch in his individual capacity as a guarantor on the loan transaction, because Patch signed a Continuing and Unconditional Guaranty ("Guaranty") for the entire amount owed under the loans.
Plaintiff seeks to recover $5,860,523.25 in principal under Note A in addition to interest and fees amounting to a total of $6,298,907.43, plus interest at a per diem rate of $1099.17 and $250,791.76 in principal under Note B in addition to interest and fees amounting to a total of $298,894.89, plus interest at a per diem rate of $1,180.79. Plaintiff also seeks to recover attorneys' fees and expenses totaling $30,516.58.
DISCUSSION
Plaintiff also moves for summary judgment on Count II, asserted against Patch in his individual capacity, for recovery under the Guaranty. In order for Plaintiff to recover under the Guaranty, Plaintiff must show 1) Patch executed a guaranty 2) that he unconditionally delivered to Plaintiff, 3) Plaintiff loaned money to the Trust in reliance on the guaranty and 4) the guaranty covers the amount that is "currently due and ow[ed]" by the Trust to Plaintiff. ITT Commercial Fin. Corp. v. Mid-Am. Marine Supply Corp., 854 S.W.2d 371, 382 (Mo. 1993). Plaintiff has again attached the necessary documents demonstrating that an unconditionally delivered guaranty was signed by Patch, Plaintiff relied on the guaranty before loaning money to the Trust and that there is a current amount due and owed to Plaintiff that the guaranty covers.
Defendants raise only one argument in opposition to an entry of summary ment.
CONCLUSION
For the reasons above, Plaintiff is entitled to an entry of summary judgment in its favor on Counts I and II. As such, the Court ORDERS the Clerk of the Court to enter summary judgment against Glenn E. Patch Trust u/a dated May 2, 2005, as amended and Glenn E. Patch as trustee under Count I and against Glenn E. Patch in his individual capacity under Count II, for:$6,298,907.43, plus interest at a per diem rate of $1099.17 under Note A; and $298,894.89, plus interest at a per diem rate of $1,180.79 under Note B; and attorney's fees and expenses in the amount of $30,516.58.
IT IS SO ORDERED.

I have done business with The Patch Group, and have know Glenn's president Tim Mahoney for many years. I have never had anything but a pleasurable relationship in every regard. Any developer of note will have occasional lawsuits filed, that's the nature of the business. However, please note that the Dick Clark situation in Branson is a long story and Glenn's side is very understandable -- the foreclosure was a direct result of the banking meltdown and difficulties in rolling notes that were well protected by existing equity. I would never hesitate to do business with Glenn or Tim at any time.

the Ramada hotel on 76 Country Boulevard, as well as the venue formerly known as Area ’57, are under new ownership and management and have reopened for the 2011 season.

The properties, which are on the same lot that also includes the building leased by the Rowdy Beaver Restaurant and Tavern, were foreclosed upon when former owner Glenn E. Patch defaulted on payments, according to legal notices posted near the time of the sale.

Mr. Shortt, you do realize that what you posted here is slander and Chris Lucchi and an outright lie. No matter what nationality was hired (including Russians) they were all paid the same (including you) There was not 1 single person fired over complaining about the situitation. There was 1 person fired for making a threat to beat another worker so badly that that worker would end up in the hospital. If I am not mistaken, that same fired person spent a few years in prison for attempted murder among other things. If anyone would like to see all the lawsuits Mr Shortt has started AND LOST against Dick Clarks, Glenn Patch and Chris Lucchi among others, just google Matthew Shortt lawsuit.
Hold you tongue Matthew, it has gotten you in serious trouble in the past. By the way, how come you left Branson? Do you ever talk to your sister anymore?

Legends in Concert,” one of Branson’s longest-running live tribute shows, has signed a multi-year contract with the new owner of Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Theater, it was announced Friday.

Such an ending was not a foregone conclusion, despite the management of the show’s continued enthusiasm for the venue it has headlined since 2009.

Earlier this year, the former owner of the property, Glenn E. Patch, reportedly defaulted on payments, and the theater, along with the nearby Area ’57, Ramada Inn and the building that houses the Rowdy Beaver, were foreclosed and sold in two separate auctions.

“Legends” general manager Jeannie Horton said at the time that her show had a lease and its season would not be affected by the sale. But, presumably, whether or not the show chose to re-up with the venue would depend largely on what direction the property’s new owner chose to take it.

According to a press release, the theater has been purchased by Jim D. Morris, head of Morris Oil Co. Inc. As we reported back in June, Morris also bought the theater’s neighboring lot, which contains Area ’57, th

Does anyone know the present whereabouts of this infamous Mr. Patch, his faithful sidekick Mr. Mahoney, and his ever-present book-doctorer Ms. Porter?

There was a posting on the Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club's website about Mr. Patch's purchase of a new boat...so much for being broke.

Your help is most appreciated!

Actually found were three lawsuits against a G.E.P., Inc.-controlled company and real estate developer in Flathead County, Montana, arising from Glenn Patch's Bigfork-based development, "Harbor Village":
a) Smith, et al. v. Rocky Mountain Recreational Communities, LLC (#DV-06-356A)- suit for breach of contract and fraud; judgment for Smith.
b) White/Keown v. Rocky Mountain Recreational Communities, LLC (#DV-07-223A)- suit for encroachment, trespass, and fraud; judgment for White/Keown.
c) Ewing v. Rocky Mountain Recreational Communities, LLC (#DV-07-212A)- suit for breach of contract; judgment for Ewing in the amount of $1.25 Million.
This Glenn Patch-controlled entity, "Rocky Mountain", then filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy on May 3, 2010 in the Butte District of Montana - case #10-61045-RBK.
Hope this helps explain my concerns about doing business and/or buying a home from a community developed by these folks.

I know Glenn Patch and have done business with him. Reading this has made me quite sad as when I met him he spoke of the Bandstand and 57 Heaven with such joy. I agree with the people that know him. He is very kind and generous. He worked hard for the money he made. I know he took a financial hit in the recession as the real estate market plummeted. So many did. He would have paid anything to keep his properties in Branson I am sure, as he was so proud. It is sad to hear people slander Mr. Patch in his misfortunes. I have faith that he will get it all back. He is a very smart businessman and I would do business with him any day.
