|Re: Western Horizon lawsuit by Charlie & Phyllis Denison|
|We purchased our membership on Dec. 24, 1996. We paid $3,000 and are among those with "no dues for life". Our Home Park is Casa Grande.
We spent the next 5 years as Fulltimers and utilized the WHR parks in AZ, WA, OR, CA, and were forced, by the economy off the road in 2001.
During those years, we both volunteered and worked for WHR in Wenatchee, WA and in Camp Verde.
We went back on the road in 2005-2006.
Our last gig was in Camp Verde in 2006 where my wife was hired as the cook and I volunteered in maintenance.
My wife, who had a food service license as did I, from Yavapai County, spent the first month with a couple who volunteered, cleaning up the kitchen, storage and freezers having to discard a large amount of food in the freezers what was out of date or was unmarked and therefore legally unusable. They also discarded staple items also out of code.
They put on breakfast on Sat. mornings and dinners several times a week - all successful.
When my wife brought the condition of the kitchen, freezers, etc. to the attention of the manager, she was severely chastised for "questioning" the management skills of the manager. In the years past, this manager and her husband were friends and the complete change in attitude and demeanor was completely unexpected and unacceptable.
We found another work camping job elsewhere and have never been back.
We ended our RV'g in 2007 but kept the membership in spite of calls and mailings requesting our paying dues and in some cases, abusive phone calls from those hired to try to extract more money from us. We don't think we fit the parameters of the class action suit or we would immediately join.
Mr. Loken has always spent his money on the acquisition of new resorts with never doing the real maintenance and upgrades needed. His managers were paid a bonus depending on how much money they saved in maintenance costs.
At Camp Verde when we worked there, the floor of the clubhouse had to be redone as the manager previous had let them go completely to hell. At that time, the automatic gate from Casa Grande was available, but as far as we know, the funds to install it were never available. Very sad.
