an Update on the ASC trails, fresh today.
Dug out the Drag Today.
Hooked up the Drag today and did Trail D101B from 76 then back to Dwight then back on D101B up to Oxbow. Its -14C and they should set up nicely. Every year I'm so thankful for the Excelent re-design that Garry Evans from Tall Pines did on our Drag. It works flawlessly. The packer pad he designed and built for us and Tall Pines works great also. The Guy is a Genius.
We didn't change the status of our trails this week as there are still a few wet spots and the other trails we packed will need another pass on them to be able to open.
We have All heard the term "Short Term Pain for Long Term Gain". Well last year we lost the use of our part of Trail 65 due to logging. I'm happy to say we will benefit from the logging roads they built and will have a new 12.7km awesome trail. It had been packed once and will need to be signed and groomed 1 more time, GPS the route so it can go on the OFSC Interactive Trail Guide. Hope to be able to get to it next. A huge Thanks to Kent and his brother Bruce for the help linking the trail and Kent riding shotgun packing it. It was a long day.
Next week if the cold temps hold I plan to get to the west side of Dwight on 77-78-79 to get them packed. There are plenty of wet spots on those trails and I see there is sled traffic on them so that should help put some frost into the ground. Just a heads up as we open the remaining trails, the existing open trails won't be groomed that day. We will try to open 1 day and groom the open trails the other day so they don't get out of hand.

You can check our availability on-line. We work hard to keep this current, but it may lag actual bookings. And it may not be 100% accurate...
We do have vacancies throughout July and August, but not that many... so you should scoop up yours! In fact, there are only about nine vacancies left for this summer!! We've got your cottage waiting, but you should call now!
We much prefer to keep the personal touch, and to discuss your booking the 'old-fashioned' way, directly, person to person! This helps us ensure that we've got your booking just the way you want it.

Changing the Season
August is on the doorstep. We currently have no vacancies until September, and our guests are enjoying the lake, the calling loons, the quiet times and all the activities that go with a summer here at Bondi Village. Get out of the city, restore your soul...
This means that we are now accepting reservations for two night stays and weekend packages during September and October -- the fall colours are astonishing, and on our own 600 acre property, there are so many walking trails and lookout views that there's no need to battle traffic into the Park just to see the beauty! Algonquin is always amazing, but during high colour season, best seen mid-week. There are so many other wonderful places around where you can enjoy the autumn without the congestion of the road, and we are happy to direct you to them.
We have great deals during the fall season, for couples, up to small groups of 18 people.
And don't forget Winter -- we've got vacancies for Christmas! We'll provide the tree, and you bring the family.
We've got a fantastic place to gather, enjoy the scenery, relax by a fire, and spend time with family and friends. Whether a quiet couples' getaway, or a family reunion or a club outing , we've got your cottage waiting.
We'd love to hear from you. The experiences our guests have are precious to us. If you have photos you took at Bondi, we'd love to have those as well. You can email them to Nancy at email@example.com

We are very proud of Napster, our tail-painting cat, who uses his lovely artwork to raise money for charities. This lovely little creature passed away July 2015, but left a huge legacy, having raised over $12,000 for various charities through the sale of his artwork. That artwork, through prints and notecards, is still available. Click here to visit Napster's Blog and visit the gallery of his tail-paintings.
Now sold around the world, he was honoured to have his artwork sold around the globe -- he even has a print with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
