Trains on BD will still have open dividers. They will add 3 High top slides with the tower using the same location with riders coming out on the old pool. Proslides is contacted to build the slides. Rides - Wild Cat has 2 full time carpenters that work on the ride. The older train is being redone this off season. Rest rooms are getting work, trying to make rest room greener. Music Express has not sold. Jolly jester is the name of the Tip-a-canoe kiddie ride. Shows will be simplified to save money with a new show called Rock the nation. Garfield characters will have a year off. New food: Self serve slushes. They brought in a trailer version of it to try it out and it was a huge success. A new building will built for it.

Simpler this year with t-shirts from SFNE, Schlitterbahn cooler bags, Santa’s village ornaments, and other small extras.

Scott Explained that an LLC is a Limited Liability Company. He spent some time talking about little history of how the program got started and the board of Directors focusing slightly on Andrew Probert who is in charge of design. Andrew has a history in Theme park design through Disney Imagineering. He also has TV Star Trek the Next Generation and the original Battle star Gelactica and Movie experience working on projects like Star Trek The Motion Picture, and Back to the future. He wrapped up inviting people to see Andrew’s Web Site, [url=&quot;http://probertdesigns.com/&quot;]Probert Designs[/url]. Scott then allowed me to talk about our online efforts. I talked about our goal to launch our new version of out web site, [url=&quot;http://www.whalom.org/&quot;]Whalom.org[/url]. I then talked about our Invasion free powered [url=&quot;http://z6.invisionfree.com/New_Whalom_Park/&quot;]forums[/url], which allow our members to suggest rides they would like to see as well as keep up the programs progress and local news. We mentioned the fantastic support we have seen on out [url=&quot;http://www.facebook.com/pages/Whalom-Park/40148951752#/pages/Whalom-Park/40148951752&quot;]Facebook fan page[/url] which is just short of 1,500 fans. We then took questions from the group. Questions consisted on funding, property, and local support. Do to time constraints we ended out group presentation but made ourselves available for one on one talks for the rest of the event. The auction was at the end of the day. Santa’s Village was really good to ace this year. A lift wheel, up stop wheel, and a Restraint spring were all in the auction this year. The other Item up for auction was a pin from one of the cars that operate on Leap the Dips. I personally bought the up stop wheel and the spring.
