this place is getting pathetic...... not renewing my membership because they wont give the members what they want. WE could of or should have had a say in who the new caretaker was but they THE BOARD left it up to the board members. As far as I am concerned the caretaker takes care of the members not the board... hey I guess thats why they got rid of Joey...he was more about taking care of the members and their every need than bending over and kissing the board members asses....needs to be some changes at the CLUB so it is more for the members than just for the board members and their friends. I just want to see the NEW caretaker do what Joey did for the CLUB. Im not interested in spending my money on dues that will go to pay for health insurance for a couple over the hill cigerette smoking back stabbers, that cant keep the pool open or their own business going.

well said. now, how long will it be before they find THIS feed and eliminate it too so that others can't read the views of real members? Just another way of keeping our mouths shut and our opinions unheard.

Cheryl is not a board member and had nothing to do with it....it was the BS person on the board and getting proxy votes from people that were not there and didnt tell them what it was for......although cheryl is friends with BS and joeys ex wife and Im sure that they all got together and plotted against joey to do this.....I guess its just a coincidence that the NEW caretaker has equipment to do the sewer project that needs to be done and Im sure it will cost the club for the work.......even if someone else bids the job lower I will bet money on it that the NEW caretaker will get the job.........mmmmm...isent that called something like conflecting intrest...??????

Where have you people been? The FMC club has been ruled by a clique of people with a host of pathologies for quite some time. Start with a President that threatens old people and is shill for the King Maker and his cabal of idiots, questionable contracts and deals for their friends and relatives and it goes downhill from there. Joey, a perfect example for all of the above, was useful until he wasn't, then gone. Many others have been stabbed in the back and lied about long before Joey.

It's not like this is a new thing. And when attempts were made to involve the general membership and dump these clowns, no one showed up. When the King Maker threatened board members with "evidence" about those board members and was called out to produce it,he could not. Hell, his own father in law called him out and he could still not produce any "evidence" of the "wrong doing" of those he publicly accused. When he walked around the club wearing a gun, nobody said anything. And the board sat there and let him do it. He even accused another member of child pornography with no proof, and the board sat there and let him do it.

There were, and probably still are, meetings before the actual meeting to determine what the clique would do and who they would get next. My only hope is that they are now turning on themselves. The only thing would have been work keeping my membership would be to watch them eat each other which someday they will.

What should have been a great place for fun is now the personal fiefdom of a clique of narcissistic people with severe insecurity and just plain mean streaks. Soon the place will close down as more of you see the light and leave that place and it collapses from mis-management and paranoid behavior. I hope I am in town to watch the sheriff chain the front gate closed and wave as some of the sociopaths tow their trailers out.

You can say what you want about the whole board but I stand behind Gary Lacy and Tim Stone...I believe they are upstanding people and trust them to do the right thing, but that is only two votes against the rest of the board. I do believe the McClues and the Sovines are behind alot the the drama that goes on there and that something needs to be done about it. I am sill a member till may and Im sure I wont be allowed to renew my membership because of the hell i have raised about this shit. I dont believe for a minute that the people that gave BS their proxy votes to get rid of Joey know what they were voting on. I will find another place to do my deer hunting and fishing that is not being over ran by two faced back stabbing assholes. you know who you are....so again I tell you to grow a pair and stop letting your wives carry them around in their purses.

Well said, Angry Member, but I wouldn't turn my back on Tim and Gary either. And nothing will be done until the membership gets to a meeting, and they never will.

Where your proof? Sounds like a lot of allegations to me. I was thinking about joining the club this year but its people like you that make me reconsider. I thought fmc was a family club where families can have a good time. If you have an issue with the way things are ran maybe you should step up be more active member. It seems really childish with some of the comments made. How could you specifically call people out and try to trash their name and reputation. It's very coward like and your words fall on deaf ears. People don't want talkers. They want walkers. So stop talking and be more involved. After all it's a family club so think about the children. Grow up.

Really Jake I think its you that needs to spend a few years there as a member and then say something, until you are a member there you dont know what you are talking about....go ahead and join and find out how far you get.iT IS A GREAT PLACE OR SHOULD i SAY WAS A GREAT PLACE..I have spent the past 5 years as a member and its been great. They have hired a caretaker that has no experiance at care taking and his wife cant even keep the pool open most of the summer...the care taker is taking care of a sportsmans club and is not even a hunter..as a matter of fact he is appalled at the thought of killing something....Im sure hes not the perfect person for the job.....or not even close....there was a caretaker from another property that interviewed and was not even considered..way more qualified but didnt get the job. Doesnt own the equipment to do the sewer job???...duhhhhh.

Not a member, always thought the place was a hole many years ago. Why people pay to do anything there is beyond me.

salt dog you dont have a clue either ...the place is not a hole for the past 6 years the grounds have been well taken care of, the deer population is up and the lakes are always full of fish.....the problem is just started in the past year...they have gottin rid of the best caretaker they have ever had, voted in board members that stab members and employees in the back and run the club for they own agendas........we will see how thing go this summer when the caretaker is to busy with his own business to keep the grass mowed the weeds cut and help the members. But Im sure he will get his buddies on the board to help him........

The trick is to just show up and do whatever. No one's ever said anything to me. Pay money? Haaahahahaha

I have said nothing here that cannot be verified by people that were there. FMC was a good place with good people until the present clique lead by the King Maker and his expendable flunkies. There are no friends there any more, people are expendable and good for what you can only get out of them. It will be end of the place because this kind of behavior and mental problems only have one end- ruin.

You have encroaching development out there. Place will be sold off a few years from now to make room for more houses. I went to a few family get togethers out there. Half the time the pool was closed, in the middle of the summer, when people wanted to use it most. The playground was always in disrepair. While I never used any of their ranges, I was told by several people that it was so busy and over run that the money to shoot up there wasn't worth the trouble. I did also attempt to fish there, it decided to rain that day so barely got any action with the fish. Most of my time out there was in the 90's though, so maybe they did take better care of it, but I highly doubt it. The astronomical insurance on the place will likely aid in it's demise.

<quoted text> Gosh it sounds like you have a hard on for the old caretaker. The new caretaker hasn't even had a chance yet to prove himself. I'm glad to know that you can predict the future and know somebody's work ethic before you have seen them work. I always seen the new caretaker help the old one cut grass and keep up the grounds. Not to mention all the work he has done out there. To be honest the club would look like crap if it wasn't for the new caretaker volunteering his time to make the club better. What volunteering have you done? What difference have any of you made?
I have spent many a day out there working right along side both the new and the old caretakers together and if you call sitting on your backhoe moving a little dirt with it while 5 others are on the ground shoveling it working then so be it...I was right there in the ditch with Joey and several other people sweating our asses off and out in the rain while he sat in his back hoe smoking cigerittes one after another and drinking coffee by the quart...Im not angry nor do I have a hard on for the old caretaker..I just wish they world have either hired the caretaker that had experiance as a caretaker or let the members have a say so about who got let go and who got hired, rather than a friend of most the board members..and I dont know if you have noticed but 9 out of 10 of all the comments on here are from people that are pretty pissed off at the place and you dont see many deffending the club or the decisions that the board has made...mmm we will see how things go over the next year, seems like there are alot of people giving up their memberships over all this drama........

Most "hirings" at the club are just railroads. I know that Joey was going to get hired months before he did. That was also a "friends of the right people" deal too. The former caretaker had to go, according to some people and his successor was hand selected. There was a hiring process and it was a joke and Joey was supposed to compete for his job when his contract was up, but that never happened either. I gather that what I thought would happened DID indeed happen and that a certain person got the caretaker job as I knew he would. Joey only lasted as long as he was useful and when Diane left the picture, the women powers that be decided he was gone. And he was. These people are not that subtle and not that smart. They have just never been opposed by enough concerned people. And apparently, are still not. They will get theirs, karma is a bitch.
