July 5, 2020 – The beginning of the end

""

There is no way to describe the sad and hollow feeling in my heart.

There were no fireworks tonight.

There was no late-night party on the deck with music and conversation.  My kids didn’t coerce funds from their lemonade stand before they roasted spidey dogs over the fire.  Usually, I take the dogs and any kids upstairs so they don’t have to hear the fireworks…..  This year,…..just me.

Quiet!   And more Quiet…

The deadlines for the Quarantine Act have been extended to Aug. 31.  That means any group scheduled prior to that date is subject to a 14 day quarantine before they can go to their lodge.  That means that the border remains effectively closed until Sept. 1.

I believe that the decision has already been made.  Politically, it sounds too bad to say out loud that everything is closed now, but I believe the entire 2020 season is going to be lost.

******We are not the only ones going through this. Watch this video put together by lodges in the area.

I don’t see any combination of variables that will open up the border this year.

I hope that I am wrong…..    But I also know the mood up here….

We will take care of the crew as best we can, but the reality is that there likely will be almost no revenue coming in this year.

We gambled and lost….

We are still banking on 2021.   It has to be perfect and we are ready, but we have to have zero surprises to make the season work.

Everything that could be done for 2020 has been done.  To a fault.   2021 is the only way forward out of this mess.

We hope to see you all then.
