Relay For Life Event (Post Event) ~ Coors Light Kick Off To Summer

 After receiving a letter voicing concerns and questions regarding the overall philosophy of Marco Polo Land; I felt it was necessary to address these issues with everyone in regards to this event; as I very much value your business and you can be assured, I DO NOT take it for granted.

We did enter into a business agreement with the organizers of this event as we wanted to do our part to support the ongoing struggles with Cancer; as we have all known or lost someone to this horrible disease. Helping the community we live in, has, and will continue to be a very important to us.

I wholeheartedly agree with the comments that a handful of the participants were totally out of control and ruining it for others.  Based on our agreement, the fundraising committee were to be in charge of their own event (security), however our security had to step in when it was realized the organizers could not handle the crowd.

I met with the committee after the event to discuss the issues and what would be done differently if Marco Polo Land was to be involved in such another event in the future.

I take it very seriously if you, our campers do not think I am running the campground well and that I intentionally put you in danger by bringing in such events.  I can assure you, your safety is my number one priority.  That being said, I have organized a meeting to discuss these or any other safety/security issues you may have on Thursday, July 12 @ 6pm in the Galley Restaurant and invite all seasonals to attend.
