I look back on it with some regret at how it turned out. To be honest,
I do not think it was handled badly. The major problem was that the
sponsor was in a special position to find out things before they were
set in stone, IOW, before they would have been notified in an ideal
situation. Because of this, things appeared to be handled incorrectly,
when in act, they were just misunderstood.
