There are only 630,000 visitors in 2010 to Fiji according to Fijis Economic Development Office. A close examination into the financial projections will prove one thing – NO CASINO anywhere in the world can repay a $290 millionn debt load based on a small tourist market. No one really believes a destination casino that keeps nearly 100% of the money coming in is the answer to Fijis emerging economy???

From reading previous replies local residents have been unsupportive of this current plan. One significant danger was recently expressed by a local reisident of Fiji :“How long does Bainimarama think he is gonna be in power, these investors should relise that once there is a change in government that the casino will be closed down. They should be told your investment is doomed to failure.”

It’s a kooky concept sold to a group of unsuspecting Snoqualmie Tribal leaders. Seller beware.

Residents of FIJI: Please take the time to read the open letter sent from the Snoqualmie Tribal Chief to Larry Claunch. Here is the link http://www.snoqualmiehereditarychiefs.com

There are a couple of important references in this document that should cement the true state of tribal fighting in the Snoqualmie Tribe.
On page two "the clandestine manueuver by the invalid council and the rogue and opportunistic Tribal Administrator."

One thing I can say for certain about the Tribal Administrator he is consistant in his inconsistancies...whenever having a Tribal Chief benefits his position Jerry Enick is respected. When opposition to the Fiji investment is discussed Chief Enick is only a "traditional position, not one created under the authority" of the US Constitution....I smell a rat

As you can tell accepting any money from the Snoqualmie Tribe in your country is a dishonorable act. It will further cause inter-tribal discord for the Snoqualmie People.
Besides, there is no casino resort in the world that has survived a market with as SMALL a population and visitor market as Fiji and survived.
Stop Mr. Claunch from stealing from the Snoqualmie Tribe and making fools of your people...
