    being a sponsor and them having access to take money directly out of your account every month. I would hope you have some kind of contact info for them other then this website. go that route then pull your sponsorship

    It’s a shame someone is willing to support a thing as such, and then they are taken advantage off or an increase in rate with no credible explanation as to why. Then when asked why, all they get is … nothing.

    For the record, there was no rate increase. In the past I have always been asked if I would like to return as a sponsor....never got that this year. It was a fun run here.

    Here is the registration info for the site with contact information and the name of the company that owns it, Carbon Media Group. This is not the same company name that owned it when DeWayne sold it.... and the board of directors listed on the company's website doesn't include the guy "Austin" who owned the site before.....whom was from Texas, site is not owned by a Michigan based company. Looks like the site's been sold again and the new people just took your sponsorship information and rolled with it....

    Now that I posted that... I was able to find a LinkedIn profile for an "Austin McLendon" who is listed as an employee of Carbon Media as a "Community Manager" https://www.linkedin.com/in/austin-mclendon-40aa4999/ but shows his employment there ended in Nov of 2017

    It shows that he worked for Group Builder... which I'm sure was the company that bought the site from DeWayne. The Group Builder website is pretty much blanked out now and the link to it in the header forwards to "Rother Investments" which appears to be a pot based investment company with the same address.

    Don't think this Austin guy has anything to do with it anymore. I'd start with the Richard Christy contact info listed in my above post.
