    Don't pay your MF's for 2 reasons:
    1) The Colonnade and another place called Grand Regency in Branson are going to be under new management so there's no point in paying old owners that hit legal trouble.
    2) While everything is getting finalized with the transition with the bank/management you can get out of your ownership with these 2 resorts without exit fees at this site (link removed). Not sure how long they'll be doing it, but they're wanting to fix the old reputation because you can pretty much go to any review site online and they have around 2.5 stars or less mainly from disgruntled owners. And I know it's not smoke and mirrors because they did it for our friends.

    We don't have to do this because we dodged the bullet and hit "no deal" after the presentation, but our friends weren't so lucky.

    Thanks for the information. Will be contacting them to try to exit without fees. I’m ready to just be done with them. Hope for the best.

    updating this, as the link provided above does not appear to be related to the resort in any way, and is instead just an upfront fee cancellation company charging more than 1800 dollars for their "services"

    on top of that, the individual who called the number on the link above spoke with an "Erin bates"...no suprise this was nothing more than a shill posting.

    for those who may have already gone to the link, please note that that page is designed to look like it is the official resort page, or somehow representing the resorts mentioned in this thread, but instead is merely a new website created by the cancellation company to lure unsuspecting owners at this resort!

    Thanks for the heads up Brian. I contacted resort closing services. Upon further investigation it isn’t associated with timeshare like the “Erin Bates” post suggests. Another reason to be a TUG member!

    big thanks go out to the St Louis BBB for contacting us directly and bringing it to our attention!

    We traded our Sunbay Beach Club in Hot Springs for the Colonnade years ago and have regretted it many times, but never more than this last year. We got a MF bill and have decided they have stolen enough of our money. We've paid on time every single time till now. We own in Orlando and Santa Fe and wish we still had our HS week! I want this man prosecuted to the max!
