Back from the city

Well after a snowy trip back from Chicago, we have made it back to camp. I had a couple hours delay on the side of the road with a broken spring on the trailer. We had to be towed to International Falls, MN. and a few hours later I was back on the road.

There is a quick turn around before I head back to Chicago to attend America's Outdoor Show at Rosemont. It starts Wednesday the 26th and runs to Sunday the 30th. I may end up attending the show by myself, so if anyone wants to attend and give me a hand at the booth, feel free to drop me an email.

Looking forward to getting back to Chicago to see some of our old guests.

Thanks Rob -

Heading to Chicago

We are heading out on the road, and will be starting the All-Canada show in St. Charles IL. on Thursday Jan 13th. The show is at the Pheasant Run resort, so if you close by, hope to see you there. We're easy to find, we are the first booth as you walk inside the show. We will forward our phone to our cell phone, so you can contact us anytime on the 800 number. If we don't answer, please leave a message, as we may just be talking with someone at the show, and should be able to call you back right away.

I have just uploaded the new 2011 brochure to the site, so if you have a friend that wants your copy, but you don't want to give it up....they can download one now.

I have also uploaded a new photo album showing all of the cabins.

Looking forward to seeing all of our Chicago friends this week-end!!

Go Bears!!!

HST / GST Rebate Update

After finally getting the proper person at the rebate center, it has been determined that the whole problem stems from the fact that they changed the form number and didn't tell anyone. Since your application was filed on the old form, which looks pretty much like the new form, but with a different number on it,  it was rejected.  Yeah I know.....all I can do is shake my head at this one.

Because there is a file started with your name on it, I can no longer talk to them about your specific file due to privacy laws. So here is what you have to do. Download the new form GST 115, print it out, fill in the appropriate boxes with the same information from your old form and send it in with your correspondence that you received and ask for a re-assessment. They promised me they will process them quickly and everyone should receive their refunds.Now you will need extra postage to send it to Canada, or else your letter will be returned. The applications need to be sent back to the address from the rebate center.

I apologise for this inconvenience, but sometimes the workings of the government are just more that I can believe.
