To All Shareholders – Spider Lake Springs Resort – Important Notice

April 23, 2020

To All Shareholders – Spider Lake Springs Resort

Further to the Park Opening message that was sent out on April 14, the Board would like to ensure that all shareholders are up to date and informed with the most current news surrounding the COVID-19 situation as it pertains to Spider Lake Springs Resort.

While there is a myriad of information available on the BC government website regarding all aspects of COVID-19, www2.gov.bc.ca, generally the message to BC citizens from our government is to STAY AT HOME.

We are all very fortunate that the park was able to open albeit with extremely limited facilities.

For the park to remain open everyone needs to do their part.  Please observe social distancing at all times.  Remember there are to be NO guests or visitors other than shareholders and immediate family until further notice.

All public areas, except the ball field and the beach, are closed.  We ask parents/guardians to supervise children outside of their lot to ensure everyone stays safe.  All dances and social events and 50/50 raffles have been cancelled for the season.

Outside contractors are limited to emergency repair services only.

The park is now operating with limited on-site staff as the Park Manager, Al Mainprize, will be working from home as much as possible for the next while. His concern for his and his family’s health and safety are supported by the Board of Directors.  It will be up to everyone to make sure that the remaining staff continue to feel safe while at work each day. For the park to remain open staff are required.  Please do not attempt to speak with staff in person, use the call box at the store or email, or you can contact your area director if there is an urgent matter.

The board will be posting a help wanted ad for temporary replacement help to cover some of the workload while our Park Manager is working from home.

Thank you for your cooperation.

As we see in the news and social media, things are changing fast, this is our plan to move forward in a positive way but plans may be changed further as events unfold over the next few weeks or months. Programs and services will be restored as soon as deemed safe and practical. Limit your gatherings to small groups of people you are comfortable with on your sites.

In the interest of everyone’s health and safety the social distance rules will be taken very seriously and any owner guilty of disregard will have gate access revoked and power turned off at their site. It takes just one owner to cause the close of the park if all the rules are not followed.

Let’s all keep doing our part by keeping Spider Lake Springs Resort safe and healthy for staff and campers, so it can remain open.
