Thank you, God! Imagine where Eagle-Vail would be if 5A had passed. Its proponents now say all our problems would have been solved with its passage.
Time for a reality check: 5A would have built a new clubhouse, some trails and other goodies, but very little money would have gone to addressing our long-range issues as outlined in the most recent reserve study. All that 5A would have accomplished would be to double our indebtedness and leave the figures above unaddressed.
