RiverFront Chalets update

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

Hello eveyone!  Its been too long but we have been accomplishing so much!  Just a quick note on what we have been doing around the chalets.  Nearly all the deckwork is in place so you can now walk from chalet to chalet on the hot tub level or chalet level.  The deck around the tub is also completed with seats around the sides.  Most of the landscaping and rockwork is completed and we have grass showing between the chalets.  Its all turning out nicer than we had envisioned!  The rafting is busy now as well.  We had a full crew out for Canada Day and we all had a blast!  The weather was hot and the water is warming up nicely.  Now that school is out will be on the river most days. 

The biggest news I have for you is that we will be developing the canyon section in Grand Falls – Windsor this season.  We are going to kick off the new addition with a fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  How?  None other than a raft race through the canyon!  Keep in touch for more details if you are interested in racing a raft through a tight canyon with 7 foot crashing waves for a great cause.  Teams will consist of 6 paddlers per raft…we will be providing guides.  We intend for this to be an annual event supporting a different cause each time.  Its going to be the ultimate high adventure fundraising event!

In other news we have had a new guide on form Ontario by the name of Mike Cooper.  Some of you may have seen him swinging fire last night at the Grand Falls – Windsor Canada Day fireworks show.  It is an art he has mastered called poi.  He puts off a great night show in front of the chalets at night.  He also very highly qualified and experienced at guiding with all the certifications we require and much more.  He is enjoying the season here on the Exploits River very much and looks forward to meeting you all!  Thats it for now!
