Members of Pipers read these bills carefully make your own judgement, if you are upset call your board members and make them stop this kind of abuse. Remember there was not one court appearance or resistance to any of the requests by the club to recover the Trade mark. We were billed $38,000 plus for this ridiculous legal action. ( this is less then half the total bills paid out by this club for this complete fleecing )  PS;  FOR MICK PANAVIS, HERE ARE YOU FACTS. A TOTAL OF THREE LEETERS WERE SENT BY OUR LAWYERS TO RECOVER THE TRADE MARKS. THERE WAS NEVER AN  ADVERSARY HEARING OR COURT ACTION JUST THREE  LETTERS AND THE TRADE MARK WAS SURRENDERED. WE GOAT RIPPED OFF FOR $38,000 AMERICAN DOLLARS IN CANADIAN THT WOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT 60K . IT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE WITH A PHONE CALL IF YOU DOUBT THESE FACTS CALL MIKE RYAN HE KNOWS WE WERE RIPPED OFF AND SAID SO.
