We come every year and enjoy all of the festivities, husband and sons enjoy participating in the timbersports. Did not like how the points are calculated. Needs to be a way to do this so they are fair. Unsure of why some counted as more than others especially if the got full points and had a partner in the event. Maybe need to display points for events before it begins and show on contract how calculated. Just an idea.
