We have had a really nice fall with temperatures still in the 50’s the second week of November! Karyn has been going through all our gear and has a nice assortment of used gear for sale that should be added to our online store in a few weeks. If anyone is planning on visiting Ely for winter activities don’t forget we do have our loft bunkhouse available.
This winter I will be in the office Monday thru Friday 10am till 3pm to answer any questions and help you plan your next trip! I will have some phone help from April (food room manager) & Samantha (my daughter) this winter so please be patient if you reach one of them. You can also see John & Lynn, Jacob, Kurt & or Nick at next year’s sport shows (see our website for the updated list).
I also wanted to remind you to call in before December 15th to lock in your 2016 rates for 2017…you don’t have to know exactly how many people for your trip, or the exact dates of your trip, or the exact outfitting for your trip. Just call to make your anticipated reservation and deposit.
Example: Hi this is Jane Smith and I would like to start an early 2017 reservation. I am thinking of coming in June and probably 4 people and want to go complete outfitting. Here is my credit card for the $240.00 deposit.
(Or we just need two canoes – deposit of $80.00)
