Was at an event at the club on Saturday and was very disappointed with the shape of the club. We have been renting the use of the shelters for the past 5 years and have never had a problem. This time the restrooms were a mess and the trash cans at the shelters were full of trash. We have always had hayrides when we were there before and no one came and offered us rides this time. No sure we will use the facilities again. No happy with the changes!!! Were is Joey the caretaker? he was always there for us to ask questions and to offer help.

We were at the same event, and my children went up to the house to ask about hayrides and were told by a very rude lady at the house the 'WE DONT DO THAT ANYMORE' very rude

Joey was asked to leave.....why? Because he decided to get divorced. The opinions of his personal life were evidently way more important to the board members than your happiness and experience as a member. He never, never, never would have let your gathering be ruined by dirty facilities, rudeness and disappointed children. Go to a board meeting, express your disappointment. Probably won't get you anywhere, but maybe when enough people complain they will start to listen....
Board members,WAKE UP!!!

This last year I have heard more complaints about the club than ever before,alot of them from close friends. I have been following the posts on topix and most of them are the usual "let's trash fmc" bandwagon folks. I know the club is run as a business but I think that you folks have forgotten that your jobs are to keep the club members happy as well as keeping the lights on. Being a former board member I know that the board has the clubs best interest at heart and I know that you can't please everyone. The comments that I read about rudeness and condition of the grounds and rifle range I have heard from several members. I am no longer a camper or member or very dedicated volunteer at the club. If any board member or committee chair person is following this thread please take what I am writing as a heads up. I am not trying to trash the club or any of its members The club was a great place to go several years ago but it looks to me like it's headed down the wrong path like it was five or six years ago.

Knew things would get like this. They should have seen it coming when they let that bunch take over the club. You made your bed board members and now you are going to have to sleep in it. Maybe there are some new herbs in the foodplots for the deer this year. Lets hope the kids dont find them.

We didn't join this year. In talking with someone I was told I should have been receiving ballots to vote each year. Not once in 6 years did I receive one. I did receive my member card. Found that funny. I had also heard Cheryl had to step down due to a conflict of interest when the caretaker change took place but I see she's still over the pool. :0/ very fishy.

Funny Fishy? That sounds like alot of the stuff that goes on there. We also gave up on the place this summer. I am sure they will find other stupid 'RICH' people that do not care about how the club is ran as long as they have a place to go. Some of us have to pull together enought money for our memberships out of our meager earnings and care about how our money is spent. As far as the pool being ran by Cheryl, I am pretty sure that Brenda S is the pool manager this summer but I am also pretty sure that she will be having Cheryl watch over it for her and still draw a check for it. The whole place is going to shat. We will see if they fill up their memberships this year. Its funny the 4-5 years ago before this bunch started running the club that there was a waiting list to get a membership and now for the past 3 years there has been openings all year. Something has to be done and I do not think it will be done with this BOARD in place. Stand up members, YOU are the only ones that can make a differance.

A neighbor of ours was out using the playground and had lunch by the pool. Said a chainsaw was left around the house and other cables. Not safe when it's usually busy out there and tons of kids. Said the grass was half mowed. Glad I left.

I am so glad I left to. Heard the place is out of control. I bet the pool is not even open today. There are threads on here, st albans, charleston and winfield topix to. Not alot of people happy about this crap.

The place has gone to hell according to many people not only here, but on FB pages where the people are clearly identified, as well as in just general talk about town. Sorry board members, you screwed this one up badly. Enjoy your with your numerous complaints,.decreased membership, and crappy employees.

i have to agree. Used to be a great place. Major mistakes and bad decisions over the last year have made it just another good ole boys club where only a select few enjoy themselves. The pool is disgusting, gets worse every year. Don't waste your money.

I worry if there is a mentally unstable person over the rifle range what could happen if the person got their hands on a firearm.
