Pine City Youth Hockey Association To Repay Lost Gambling Funds

Sunday, April 10th, 2011 at 11:43 am

The Pine City Youth Hockey Association is one of four organizations that must repay lost gambling funds.  The four organizations are involved in legal gambling. The Minnesota Gambling Control Board ruled last month that they have to reimburse their accounts for gambling proceeds or inventory that went missing. The Pine City Youth Hockey Association had $265 missing.

The groups wanted the board to let them adjust their records to reflect their losses instead of  forcing them to reimburse their accounts from nongambling sources. The board decided the groups should have had better safeguards in place.

Here are the four groups involved and the amount of money that is missing:

American Legion Post 261, Kimball: $500.

Eagles Aerie 287, Brainerd: $462.50.

Pine City Youth Hockey Association, Pine City:  $265.

Paynesville New London Spicer Hockey Association, Paynesville: $1,406.
