Date of Report: March 19, 2020
Hello from Lake Gogebic where social distancing is why we live and work here! We hope you and your family are healthy and holding up well through the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19). This pandemic coupled with rapidly deteriorating trails are forcing the final report of our 2020 Snowmobile Season. Gogebic Area Groomers are done grooming, but don’t think for a minute that their job is over as they’ve already started planning and working on next season! Lake Gogebic trails have been amazing all season, and we extend a multitude of thanks to our hard-working, dedicated team. We are certainly fortunate for their efforts as well as the those of all surrounding clubs. That said, there is snow in the forecast this weekend (of course there is!).
We also owe a debt of gratitude to all our loyal guests and customers, as without their continued support, we wouldn’t even exist! On behalf of Gogebic Area Grooming, all our local area businesses, employees, residents and volunteers – we shout out a HUGE “thank you” for making the Lake Gogebic Area your home away from home! We know that you have a choice of where to ride and spend your vacation time, and we appreciate that you choose our beautiful region! We hope that your time here was special and that you took home memories that will make great stories for years to come (some stories better than others!).
Gogebic Area Groomers have projects going on throughout the year, and we encourage (need) people to get involved. We ask you to be a part of our efforts with a sponsorship of $30 for a single membership, $50 for a family membership and $125 for a business membership. These can be sent to “Gogebic Area Grooming” at “P.O. Box 409, Bergland, MI 49910”. We appreciate all donations/sponsorship and we will do our part in communicating our goals, efforts and accomplishments back to you.
While you and your families may be confined to your homes right now – it’s a great time to start planning your next vacation. Please keep the Lake Gogebic Area in mind as it is a great place to visit year-round. From fishing to hiking, ATV’ing, waterfall touring, swimming, boating, kayaking, camping and more – we’ve got it all! I know if you call all any of our local area businesses, that they will be happy to help you plan your next family vacation or fishing trip!
Well, that’s it for now folks – this season was a great one and we have been blessed. For the moment we are just staying home, staying positive and looking forward to a brighter tomorrow. While the tourism industry is taking a huge hit, we will get through this and be will emerge better and stronger!
Until next season, this is Mary Beth from AJ’s Walleye Lodge wishing you and your loved one’s peace and good health as we navigate together through these unchartered waters. We won’t say good-bye -we’ll just say that we’ll “see you when we see you next”! All the very best…. stay well friends….
