According to a knoxnews press release from May 15, 2011, Hooters was already indicating it would not be sponsoring Golf events in 2012....so it may not be a "Victoria" issue.
So who was the sponsor? The article did not mention who it was.
I heard the sponsor threw a temper tantrum and pulled out after the city took action on a building he was constructing failed to go through the proper permit process and construction was halted.
Said he would no longer sponsor any events that benefit Victoria.
