The email was given to the Cedartown Standard and reads as follows:
Many Thanks for getting in tough and for your expression of support Tough Mudder and the Wounded Warrior Project. As you can imagine, we are incredibly disappointed by the decision of the Board of Commissioners of Polk County to reject our application for a special permit to serve alcohol at our upcoming event at Highland Park.
Unfortunately much as we are happy to be coming to Cedartown this year for what will be an incredibly fun and successful event, due to our existing contractual obligations with our sponsors Dos Equis, we simply cannot return next year to Highland Park if it remains under the jurisdiction of Polk County and it still does not have an alcohol license.
In order to ensure that we return next year and for the next 5 years, it is absolutely imperative that the City of Cedartown does all it can to expedite the process. We are going to be finalizing our event calendar for 2012 within the next six weeks, so we will need an answer by the end of April.
I look forward to meeting you at the event next weekend.
With kind regards and best wishes,
Guy Livingstone COO Tough Mudder
