A few changes for this upcoming season at Emandal. Perhaps it’s because I’m getting older…. but I like to think it’s because I’m getting wiser… finally!
We are offering four (4) night stays this year….. only 4 night stays, or less for a couple of groups. And, because schools are forcing their way into our summer, we’re having to combine two of our sessions. We can no longer manage the intensity of a group leaving one day, and the next one arriving 24 hours later. I KNOW that for years families left the same day new families arrived (Grandfather and Grandmother had it down to a science!) But how they managed to “do it all” I have no idea! I really don’t know how Clive and I did it, either! Ah well…… wiser, and saner!
For a lot of you, this will work splendidly. However, CHANGE is difficult. Any change. Please understand that these alterations will allow Emandal to continue… period. Here’s the schedule for our 111th season, 2019. (Obviously, not MY 111th season… it’s only my 54th) I’m looking forward to seeing everyone… but know that with change, comes more change, both good and bad.
