I would like to make two "corrections" to last Friday's editorial (regarding the development of the Payson Event Center).
Grace Development is the owner and developer of the Prescott Resort and Bucky's Casino. Mic Fenech, who spoke at the town meeting, works for Grace Hospitality, a division of Grace Development. HSG asked Grace Hospitality to be the operator of the Payson project in order to take advantage of their strong managerial skills in managing hotels in smaller Arizona cities.
In our response to the RFP Grace supplied separate brochures on their company. The principals of Grace Hospitality and HSG are close friends and look forward to working together on this project.
As a member of the original Pointe team I was the senior vice president of operations. Rustler's Rooste became a part of the Pointe organization as part of the development of the Pointe on South Mountain. Actually, however, Rustler's Rooste was an existing restaurant prior to the Pointe on South Mountain.
