Default Fishy business at the mounds?

I went to the mounds last Friday, the older guy came over and looked at out stuff. We had 1 bike that had a yearly and 2 that didn't, so I gave the guy $20 for 2 non resident passes. He walked away and never gave us our passes. Should I report this, seems really fishy to me. I probably should have confronted him, but I said F-it, and the more I though about it, I remember hearing about people doing fishy stuff here, and I want my money to go to upkeep of the park not some dumasses pocket.

I would of demanded a tag.

When I went there last week on Sat. there were young kids working. They did a really great job. Some lady tried to lie and say she was from the area but he asked where and such and saw she was lying.

I checked my tag and made sure it said non-resident.

repoast, repoast, repoast repoast x a plethora


This has been going on for ever since I've ever been going there. And people are always posting here about it. People that work there are pocketing money and not handing out tags. Period.

He always walks over and get the money, then brings the pass. He has always done it that way the 5 times I have been there this year.

Oh, maybe he just forgot?

If he didn't come back I would've hunted him down though, but that's just me.

I have been to the mounds 10 or 11 times since september and have been asked for id to prove residency almost every time. Even though I live locally I will gladly pay for a daily pass each time if the money is used to keep the park open. NOONE should get a price break based on what club they are in,who they know,or who they blow. It's simple ,resident or non-resident,and be ready to prove it.

X3 This is only the stuff that gets noticed, Imagin all the stuff that goes on that nobody knows about......Yet It's no wounder the Rock course and any other improvments have been shot down, delayed or under bid. If most of the money collected goes into some turds pocket.

Reporting this helps weed out the people robbing the GC parks and Rec.
