Re: “Why We Saved The Pinhook

While I agree that the Pinhook is a valuable community resource, there are a few things that I personally cannot get behind in regards to this situation. Perhaps I am slightly biased, as I'm typically of the opinion that crowd sourcing is an often misused (and overused) resource in the first place. Just my opinion. But when the money is used to benefit what is, and what has always been, a for-profit business, I feel like the question should be asked, "Why should the community be asked to clean up the mess?" Surely, the same amount of business savvy and entrepreneurial spirit that was necessary to open and run the Pinhook in the first place, should have also been applied when considering the liabilities and tax implications of running a club for a profit. Indeed, this same business savvy was effectively used to generate quite a large sum of money from community members to pay for this "bookkeeping mistake". I must say that I find it extremely hard to believe that the owners of the Pinhook were unaware that sales tax had to be paid in the normal course of running a business. Transparency? I think not.
