Yes it did; Sentence 1, in Provision #3 on Page 4 states, "Upon expiration of the Preview Period, the Spring Preview Membership will Terminate"
Again, the Spring Preview period was June 15th to July 15th, two years ago.
I understand your limitations of not seeing the documents.
I am not sure that I communicated that the original agreement and the spring trial membership agreement were one in the same. Did you know that when you answered?
Also, some other information There are no clauses that say things survive the original agreement. Also, the trial membership was an individual trial membership was in my name and the current membership is owned by a Corporation. They were supposed to have the Corporation submit a new application but someone missed it and the Corporation did not do so. The Corporation "application" paperwork does not have any provisions that tie the Corporate membership to the Bylaws. That is why they are now trying to use the old application that was in my name. Also, the Bylaws do not allow for transfers to new members without a new application so they can't claim I transferred or assigned the spring trial membership to my Corporation. Hope this helps.
I am the corporate designee but I do not "own" the membership and it is in the Corporate name.
I didn't want to provide all the details because it starts to get thick but the Club actually went back to my individual membership application and filled in deposit amounts, changed the category to Corporate, and changed the Corporate number on the original document by crossing out the old one and writing in the new one. They even added a term of "upon availability" near the refundable deposit amount of which I don't understand the meaning. They did not tell me they did this and obviously do not have my initials/signature. The decision to seek a corporate membership came 3 1/2 months after I signed the original application/agreement as an individual. They sent me this document two years later when I asked for return of my deposit. The bylaws say they can hold the deposit for 30 years.
I am interested in your general reaction/thoughts here.
