State attorney general's office settles club dispute
Under a settlement reached with the Consumer Protection Division of the state attorney general's office, members of a defunct health club in Annapolis may transfer their membership contracts to a new club at comparable cost.
When Annapolis Health & Fitness closed in 1998, the division said the club's successor, the Premier Health & Fitness Club, had to honor the old contracts. Instead, the new club required higher dues.
The settlement allows Annapolis Fitness members to join Premier for fees comparable to what they had paid at the previous club. Members who joined Premier and paid higher dues will receive a refund.
Pat Sajak honorary chair of Hospice Cup regatta
Pat Sajak, host of the television show "Wheel of Fortune," will serve as honorary chairman of Hospice Cup XVIII Sept. 18 on the Chesapeake Bay off Annapolis.
Thirteen classes of boats will compete for trophies, as well as sponsor trophies for achievements -- including one donated by the Pat Sajak Foundation.
Hospice Cup, one of the country's largest charity regattas, depends on corporate and private sponsors to raise funds for the six major hospice programs in the Baltimore-Washington corridor. Sponsors donating $250 will view the regatta from aboard the Lady Baltimore.
