Below is a pic of the last house being pulled from the ice. Easily the most challenging year we have ever had with multiple early ice cracks and many bridges; it is almost ironic that once the ice stabilized and the issues were behind us, the season comes to an end. Thanks to all our members and patrons that were patient and understanding and to the many that gave us a helping hand, it is greatly appreciated! Thanks to everyone that chose the Red Door for their winter adventures even though it was more of a challenging bite this year. I want to thank all of you that unbanked and prepared for quick removal as the blizzard hit hard on Sunday. Ice shacks are back on their lots safe and sound. Access is now closed to vehicle traffic but will remain open to snowmobiles and ATV’s. Last but not least, I want to thank our ice team for the hard work and dedication throughout this challenging year; you all made it possible.
Customer appreciation was a blast. Thanks to Steve Jacoby “One Man Rock Band” for rocking the house! He was absolutely awesome and his talent is amazing. Thanks to Steve Unzen for also sharing his great musical talent, entertaining us between and after hours as well. Thanks to both Steve Wight and Steve Unzen for helping set-up, clean up and cooking all the pulled pork; you guys are awesome! Thanks to Dick DeShaw, Joanne Bergren, Patty Mahowald, Elaine Bauer, Jodi Guyer, Jackie Schmidt, Sam Shaw, Matt Williams, and everyone else that brought food, treats, and helped out in many ways; we owe all of you huge! We also want to thank those that operated the keg pump as that helped contribute to the evening substantially! Thanks to all of you that came and joined the festivities; it is always enjoyable for Lynn and I to get the opportunity to spend some time with you all as share laughs and stories. We have some exciting new things at the resort for this coming spring…..stay tuned and we look forward to seeing you all this coming spring.
