HI All,
Here is the latest Post I got via face book on the Campground status. I was in contact with administration and was told that all registered guest will be receiving an E-Mail with this same information but just in case they drop the ball on this I am sending it along here.

Very good to see this; a little ray of sunshine in the otherwise sea of bad news.

Spring Fling

We did get this email Gerry but thank you this it is encouraging, we will be there but also take this serious as we lost a friend to COVID but all in all we only have 10 confirmed cases in our county we dont even go to the stores we order items and wipe them all off when we get them just in case. We are looking forward to Spring Fling even though we won't be able to do the group activities it will be like going to a campground and having allot of friends there just at a distance we can do this!!!!



thanks again Gerry and Barbara

We have come to the decision to cancel for this year. Being that we come from the NYC metro area, I’m sure we will still be under stay at home orders. We look forward to next year!
Thanks for your all you do Gerry.

Heading up to campground on Sat. to build some Sanitation stations for them to use at public areas.
They need these ASAP because they open May 1 for the season.
Hope all is well with all the Spring Flingers and see some of you soon and the rest of you in 2021.

I use to know how to send pictures on this site but either age of myself or my operating system I can't seem to get them loaded or I would send some pictures of the Campground.
I was just hired on a part time basis as Special Projects at the campground for the season.
Start tomorrow building sanitation stations for public areas.

18 more days till the rally and was at the campground working. Yup Working.
I was asked to take a job there and go on the payroll and HMMM should I say it, I took it like a fool.
Thinking maybe going on summer camping trips around this summer wouldn't be something that would happen decided camping at Chocorua Camping Village will be OK but I got to tell you, just 2 - 8 hour days of working and I feel it all over.
When I am working at home, I can take many breaks but 8 hours steady is a bit much.

The count now stands at 23 sites will be attending the rally.
I am still mulling over just how the chicken dinner will take place and the GM of the campground has suggested a few ideas on how to do it safely and we'll see how it can be done.

The staff has did a bang up job cleaning most all of the winter debris out of the campsites and will have it done by our Rally but a few areas wont be open for May 1 when the campground is scheduled to open.

We all got today off because forecast was calling for 6 / 9 inches of snow and outside projects couldn't get done but waking this morning I see the ground is still bare, Thank God.

Yes Dave nothing like waking and walking around the campground smelling bacon cooking outside and birds singing and people talking in low volume to give the heart something uplifting.

Everyone take care.
Gerry

Thomas, that's great news! We have our fingers crossed for you as things seem to be opening up here and there a bit quicker now, and by next week I suspect the pace will pick up substantially - I know you can't wait to get your new BF on the road.... Am also getting a new toy ready for her Maiden Voyage to Chocoura tonight > a new 16' Ranger we picked up from Tom at his shop near Squam Lake on the way up to Lost River & Franconia last October.... Might be a little chilly for paddlin, but nuthin a wool cap & an old Pendleton can't cure.....Dave

Parting thoughts tonite Folks before I start re-shaping a paddle handhold.... > while waxing up the Scamp's plate a few minutes ago, I thought about Gerry working for the next two + weeks at Chocoura to insure a safe and excellent time for us all ( and probably having to eat ibruprofen like M&Ms in the process).....I know for the Dedicated, we will be there for him for the appropriate Accolades..... For those who have cancelled a favorite site - there is still time to retrieve it! We together yet apart will create our own safe environment, and prevail, despite arbitrary mandates....HELLO!

All is well here and we didn't get the 6 / 9 inches of snow predicted. I did take the day off and got my Casita just about ready to head to the campground tomorrow. I know there will be a lot of food items and stuff I will forget to bring but will probably make due.
If I could spend a week in the Maine Woods hiking the AT when I was younger I can probably survive living in the camper for a week without some of the food I will forget to pack.
Coffee and Oat Meal go a long way when it's cold and damp.

And don’t forget the beverages. Nothing will help wash down the planned chicken dinner like a nice big glass of Lysol on the rocks.

CPW - you keep coming back like a "Bad Penny" as we used to say back in the day. I understand this virus has you a bit wound up, but that comment was way beyond the pale - a direct insult to the Folks attending this rally. Gerry is hard at work insuring a safe gathering for us all, and we in turn will do our part with our individual efforts. I wish your troubled soul peace in the near future.....this mess will be behind us in relatively short order. Now leave with sacred hand signs from my Boys atop Washington (100+ mph gusts that day) and get thee back to the Covid forum.....Dave

The virus does not have me wound up in the least. I’m afraid that your tunnel vision has clouded your perception; you know nothing about me whatsoever. To clarify, my comment was totally meant as a joke that anyone would think they could actually cleanse their “internals” with disinfectant, as has been floated by certain political figures. Furthermore, I would never refer to anyone on this forum as a bad penny. I’m afraid that you don’t understand anything, and it could be you that is suffering with a troubled soul, or a frustrated one, as you would like to promote that “this mess will be behind us in relatively short order.” There are some pretty heavy hitters in the medical field who do not share your opinion, with an emphasis on opinion. Sorry if my comments got “under your skin.” But if you are going to participate on a forum such as this, a thick skin is beneficial. And by the way, Gerry may be hard at work but there is no way he can absolutely guarantee a safe gathering, any more than you can insure that things will be back to “normal” in short order. It is wishful thinking, but I will concede, I share the same wish.
