This winter has sucked, snow, ice, cold and school closings?
SDC is closed,
Did I mention winter has sucked so far this year..
Most of the Shows in Branson are closed for the season,
Oh yes, Snow, cold, Ice, school closings.. :(
Super Bowl wasnt even a good game this year..
And so far since the first of the year, winter has been terrible.....  LOL
 
I have been to Branson twice,
Made a quick trip out to Denver, But no Bike riding, it was cold of course..
i have a backup wood furnace, and have used more wood this year than i Have for the last 3 years.!!
I tried to watch the playoffs, but the Ref's were doing suck a poor job, I hate to start drinking to watch :o
The bad thing is, we have another 30 days to Opening at the Park.... ::)

 Made my trip,  was good to see a couple of my favorite shows in town...  as you all know I am friends with and really like their show, The Haygoods.  It was good to see them all after there winter break..  was able to work in the afternooon show at Grand country, always a good time with that group too...

Pictures..?? >:( >:(

Took several pics, and when I got home I have a "Corrupted" disc message!!  So NO pics..... >:( >:(.

Here is what I saw...
The new pool at The tracks next to Hughes, NO progress..  Bad weather
The New ride at the other Tracks next to Tanger- No noticable progree there.. They are saving the old track for sure as we discussed.
The Wonderworks they have the one Elevator shaft done, working on a second now, not much else.
Still working on the interior of THE Starlite for the new National Enquirers museum, not a lot of progress there.
Ramada Inn--  The Main building is leveled and gone, the other two buildings have been gutted and and look like will come down soon. Wont take long there are 3 or 4 big pieces of equipment, and these guys look like they are being serious about it!!!!  LOL   This is really going to chnage the way that area looks.. Ramada has been there a long time...

Be back in 4 weeks, try to get updated pics then with a "good" disc,,,, ::)

Maybe you can check out on what's going on with the remodeling at the Cascades Inn and what's going on with the
destruction of the old Ramada Inn by Dick Clark's American Bandstand Theater?

OK, I will do that,,,

Cascades, not much to see, they are getting all new front facade, you dont even reconize the old building,  has been kind of a long project..

will get pics of Ramada,,

A couple of quick updates.

1.  The 2019 Edition of the "City Shuffle" is now online - where things are moving for this season
https://www.midwestinfoguide.com/2019/02/city-shuffle-sdc.html

2. Dockside Theatre will survive for one more season.  Though, both it and the former White River Mercantile building are slated for removal off season 2019.  WRM will be used as a character meet-and-greet building and Santa's House this season.

House of ribs all year?  LOL,  I like that...

As far as the rest of the moves, I am dizzy just trying to keep track of it....   LOL

Good report..!!...

I have been thinking about booking a room at the Grand Country so we can take the kid to their indoor water park.  Is it work the $130 they want?  Other than that, might get a cheap room with KD or somewhere else.  Aside from those shows, what other indoor things are there to do?  What about that Fritz deal?  Just wanting a cheap trip.

Grand country has 36 holes indoor golf by the restaurant inn main building....
the other building has the indoor go-carts,
blacklight gold,
laser tag,
lots of arcade games,
3D "ride" (more like a video game)

everything costs money except you get free water park pass with room rental..

If you stay somewhere else you can pay to get in waterpark, BUT i dont know what that fee is..

Just a rumor that is floating around - still trying to get exact details....

Either the corkscrew pass bridge OR the truss bridge near the blown glass/candy shop will be removed and redone this off season.  It sounds like it will be one this year and the other the next.

Bridge replacement has been put on hold.  Apparently they’ve bit off more than they think they can chew this off season and are now concerned about getting things done before March in “key areas”

I thought it sounded like they were trying to do ALOT in off season.  These guys have endless people and a huge budget, :o so if they want they can get it. :).    In
Interesting they decided to hold off on this, Makes me wonder what else they are doing. ???.  Must be lots of little projects going on in prep for the new stuff next season ;D.

Branson Talk / Classic Motor Inn - 2019 - K.D.
« on: February 07, 2019, 08:48:05 AM »
I will be staying with KD again this weekend..

I have not been able to lock down another motel yet.. The previous one I had made "arrangements" with went through 3 managers in 4 months, Now I cant get the newest one pinned down..

I am meeting with A rep from Elliot Lodging this weekend.  They are locally owned out of Springfield, and ised to own Home Stay, where we started..

KD obviously has not decided to move on yet..  I will be talking to her about that this weekend also.

The current owners have extended our discounted rate to us for 2019. So for now, since KD is still there, until I can get different arrangements made. I will be there with her.

Sorry for the delay/confusion.  But it is amazing how many motels in Branson, are NOT Local American Owned, and that is what I am trying to get us back to..

Hopefully more info next week...

But for now call KD, I am dealing only with her and I am ignoring the owners..
