2020 Guidelines for ECB Representatives
This is just a brief run through on how Elks Camp Barrett will be dealing with the Covid 19 situation in the next few weeks.
We have had 90% cancellations on our rentals for March and April. We are refunding the deposits of those cancellations or allowing them to reschedule for another open date. I am accepting cancellation up to 48 hours prior to a rental for the foreseeable future. If a cancellation occurs within the 48 hour window the amount of the caretakers fee will be withheld as he will have already begun preparations, set up and planning for the rental and should receive his compensation for same. Renters have been contacted accordingly.
As far as camper registrations go, we are continuing to accept pre-registrations for campers as if nothing has changed, the entering of the online part of registrations will not open until May 1.
I am waiting until after April 30th to sign contracts for staff and vendors, due to concerns of an extended state of emergency situation calling for longer self quarantine recommendations. We can not afford to contract staff and take the chance that we have to cancel. $70,000.00 plus in employee expenses, or a horrible unemployment insurance hit will result.
Please continue to push for pre-applications for campers. Let all campers who have pre-registrations know that they will be able to complete their online registrations after May1st.
I am making and sending out flyers for youth week celebration on 5/9 and the Family picnic on 5/26. They can be cancelled at a later date if the need arises.
George Tunnicliff has canceled the Representative meeting for April 4th, but asks that the Exec. Committee meet by telephone (time and details forthcoming).
I personally have no reason to change my hours or schedule at this time as I am pretty much the only one here, Same for Karl the caretaker. So, no change here. Call if you have questions. Thanks to all.
Be safe Be well,
