OPINION
PICKARD, Judge.
{1} This case provides us with another opportunity to evaluate and interpret the bankruptcy-related documents of an entity emerging from bankruptcy.  See Home & Land Owners, Inc. v. Angel Fire Resort Operations, L.L.C., 2003-NMCA-070, 133 N.M. 733, 69 P.3d 243 (hereinafter HALO) (involving the same entity and different portions of the same documents).  The dispute here concerns whether Angel Fire Resort Operations, L.L.C. (the Resort) can sue landowners when those landowners do not pay their annual assessments.  The documents designate that the annual assessments are to be used for the upkeep of a ski area, a golf course, and other amenities (the amenities).  The trial court ruled as a matter of law that the Resort could not sue, and the Resort has appealed.  We reverse.
BACKGROUND
