court hears oral arguments on Mill Bay Resort

October 29, 2009

The U.S. District Court in Spokane heard over two hours of oral arguments from both the plaintiffs and defendants on the legal dispute involving the MA-8 property and the rights of  the land occupied as Mill Bay Resort by the Mill Bay Members Association.  There were many questions raised by Judge Quakenbush that required both sides of the dispute to explain some very complicated issues.

The results of the hearing are yet to be completed, but Judge Quackenbush indicated that he may order a “stay” that could continue indefinitely until the previous related case regarding the  lease  is completed resolved.  Should the court order a stay,  it would provide a status quo for the park while the legal proceedings continue.


October happenings

The compressor was rented and the irrigation lines were blown out last Saturday morning.  Help was provided by Jerry Schwan, Bill Acomb and Frank Vertrees.  The original schedule (next weekend) was moved up because of the unpredictable weather and the anxious crew available to help.  Fortunately the freeze we experienced the prior weekend resulted in only two cracked pipes – both of which can be easily fixed.

The domestic water is off on the regular side of the park and water to the expanded sites will be turned off soon.  Because of quickly changing weather, it is not possible to provide a scheduled date.  Also, garbage, cable tv and internet service is being disconnected for the season.

Please remember our court hearing is on Thursday, October 29th at 9:30 in the Spokane United States District Court.  Follow the link at the bottom of this post for a map of the Court location.  We would like to have as many members as possible attend the hearing.  There are several motions before the court that may hopefully bring resolution to the dispute.  We hope you can attend.

early cold weather forces early water shutoff

October 12, 2009

The weather at our park turned to winter this weekend as temperatures hit the 20’s under beautiful sunny sky.  The unexpected overnight cold temperatures forced a decision to turn off the park water earlier than was planned.  The bathhouse will remain operational until the weekend of the 24th when all irrigation lines will be blown out and the park will be fully winterized.  Hopefully everyone has winterized their trailers!
