Friends and visitors:
Thanks to all of our guests who returned this past spring!! With the economy the way it is, we were concerned. But you all are the best and we ended up having a busy season.
A few news items -Izzie, our former basset hound, has found a good home up the hill. Sadie is aging (12 +/-), but manages to follow us around the camp pretty faithfully. She has been a great camp dog for us.
High water and something like 30 inches of rain in a week during April sure made the fishing challenging for a while. For the most part though, our groups did well all through the season.
We are working on getting the gas pump fixed - finding somebody who will service it is a challenge. But it should be up and running again soon.
We have a new AC unit in #2.
In trying to come up with some savings for our customers in this economy,we have re-thought our slip rates . We will be reducing to $6.00 a night. We are sorry we can't do more but cabin costs are higher than ever. Hope this helps.
Stan hopes to do some work on the dock this summer to even-up and stabilize the sections in front of the office and the rocking chairs.
We have begun asking guests to park boat trailers across the street to make driving through the camp and parking in it easier. Thanks for helping on this.
We all appreciate Stan and all of his efforts to make your stay comfortable and keep the camp operating well. Kathy keeps the cabins orderly.Terry has been a great help in Jim's absence - the architecture business is still a bit challenging of late (things appear to be improving slowly!)
While the camp is officially listed for sale, realities and our desire to sell it to the right people and for the right purpose probably mean it will still be Stegbone's for quite some time to come.
So, all in all, our little old traditional Florida fish camp seems to do pretty well. Not many places where our guests can still do what they do at here - and at a fairly reasonable price too.
So, keep us in mind this fall!!
We certainly appreciate you continuing to visit us.
Catch ya later,
Stan, Terry and Jim
