2009 September



What a season!

Where did the summer go? It seems like yesterday that we were welcoming our first families in June. We had a terrific summer and enjoyed seeing you all.  Now we had to send this picture because that is me skiing on September 24th!  It was so hot in the office, the lake was calling our names and Lisa, Anna and I  just had to go.  I don’t think this will ever happen again in our lifetime when the water is delightfully warm at this time of year!   The next picture will be of the beautiful fall colors we get to enjoy every year.

Big Wedding
So what do we do when everyone goes home? Well hours after our last full family weekend this summer we celebrated a big family wedding when Charlie Schupp (our oldest son and 2nd child) got married. The ceremony and the reception were both at Fair Hills Resort. http://tinyurl.com/nog4vl

Wild Life

The Loons are still waking us up at 4:30 a.m. but they are starting to head south.  We also saw a flock of Pelicans heading south.  Ed is flying to Phoenix on Sunday and it won’t be long before Dave and Barb drive to Fort Myers. That’s a lot of wildlife heading South!

New Videos
We’ve added a bunch of new videos to the Fair Hills YouTube channel – check ‘em out. http://www.youtube.com/user/fairhillsresort And if you have a video on YouTube we should check out – please send us the address.

Winter Sales

We’re taking the Hootenanny on the road, and possibly coming to a city near you!  In February we hope to visit Sioux Falls, Omaha, Des Moines, Iowa City, the Chicago area, the Twin Cities and Winnipeg.  If you have a few friends or family members that you think would be interested in finding out more about the resort, we will let you know more specifically when we’re heading to your neck of the woods.  Larry will be playing the piano, and we’re recruiting staff to help put on a mini-hoot.  Caitlin and I will be there singing Pelican Lake but we’ll need a volunteer for the Monotone Lawnboy!  If you feel that you could host us for an hour and a half in your home or at your club where we could entertain and inform some of “your people”,  drop me a line.  We’ll pick up the tab and you help us with some specifics!

Winter Getaway?
Yup, you read that right. Remember that Five Lakes Resort is open all year round. It’s peaceful. In the fall the colors are amazing. In the winter the cross country skiing trails are well-groomed and nearly private. Check it out: http://www.fivelakesresort.com/
