Monkeying Around

Lately we’ve been working on resizing item photos for the Santa Claus Christmas Store online webstore. It is a long spreadsheet with a lot of UPC codes.

When I came across this item photo I just couldn’t resist sharing. This little guy isn’t working very hard to help re-size any images … he’s just monkeying around. 😉

Indianapolis Boat, Sport & Travel Show

Dave, our Marketing Director, is on his way to Indianapolis for the Boat, Sport & Travel Show. It’s the 56th annual show.

The show will run from today, February 19 through Sunday, February 28. The locale is the Farm Bureau Building at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.

Here’s the official website … it has the hours, admission price and other important show information. And because we appreciate our fans so much, here’s a coupon from us to you.

If you get the chance tonight or tomorrow, stop by and say “Hi” to Dave. He should be roaming among around the campground and RV booths. I’m sure he’d love to see you!

Halloween in Santa Claus, Indiana?

Yes we are located in Santa Claus, Indiana, and Christmas should be our favorite holiday. And it is, but following in close second is Halloween. Partly because of our Halloween themed weekends. And partly because Rudy loves all that Halloween candy.

So if you haven’t already made reservations for HalloWeekends this year, here are the dates and the information:

2010 HalloWeekends
September 17 & 18
September 24 & 25

October 1 & 2
October 8 & 9
October 15 & 16
October 22 & 23
October 29 & 30

HalloWeekend activities include campsite decorating, costume contest, haunted hayrides, pumpkin decorating, Mummy (and Daddy) bingo, bonfire ghost stories and other frighteningly fun events.

Rudy is already planning his Halloween costume. He has it narrowed down to a few choices. Don’t worry, you’ll be among the first to know his costume and the theme for this year’s HalloWeekends!

Enjoy the photos below from previous HalloWeekends!

What do YOU think?

This week, even amid the snowstorm, our county visitors bureau hosted a series of focus groups. Basically short sessions with the attractions and lodging in our area to gather their thoughts and ideas on the future direction of tourism. A good plan right?

Thinking along those lines we thought it would be good to gather your suggestions as well.

1. What do you like to do when you visit our area?
2. What’s missing … what would you like to see added in Spencer County, Indiana?

You can comment here on our blog, or on our Facebook page. Thanks for your comments and suggestions. They’re a huge help!

Something Super

Something super is taking place. Super as in Super King RV Rentals!

This year we have replaced some of our older Standard RV rentals with Super Kings! There will be 12 new Super King RVs for you and your family to enjoy.

Now … if you’ve stayed in our regular King RVs here are the differences:

  1. More modern appliances including a regular size oven and smooth top stove.
  2. A larger dining table that now seats 6 people.
  3. A full shower in the Master Bedroom.

Free photo tour provided. 🙂

      Phase 2 = Snow + Mud

      Now that the basement of the new office is poured the guys are moving onto digging, measuring, and pouring more concrete.

      Phase two of the construction brought more snow which mixed with the mud, but it doesn’t seem to hinder ’em. I’m sure they’re used to it.

      Me on the other hand … my fingers got cold just taking photos of their progress. And I tracked muddy snow back into the office.
