I am writing in regard to my comments at this month's town of Sheridan board meeting. Now I feel compelled to seek the newspaper's assistance in getting a resolution.
We have held a bike run benefit for the last seven years at Sheridan Bay Park without incidence that has actually been very profitable for the town and also for all in our area suffering from muscular dystrophy.
This year the new management of the park, Wayne Ashley, for some reason or another has made this most difficult. He would not allow the coordinators of this event to reserve the camp sites for us and we would pay on arrival. The worst part of this is he will not return our calls to confirm our spots.
When I was getting nowhere with this, I went and addressed the board for some resolution to this problem. Town Supervisor Louis Delmonte was very cordial and even took my number to resolve our problems. It has now been more than a week and we are no farther ahead then we were months ago.
I did explain we have people who come from Canada that always come and camp plus all the bikers that give their time for such a worthwhile cause.
Hopefully, the bikes will come and there will be a place for each and everyone of them like in years past.
It seems like we are being discriminated against. I believe that would come under the Federal American with Disabilities Act which I may have to contact next.
I would also at this time like to thank all the volunteers and participants for making this event such a success and hope we can have an overwhelming amount of support this year.
