  1. Welcome to husky owners
  2. One thing for others to bear in mind with this is exactly whats just been said about the amount. If its not a huge amount then it may be worth the voucher. If however its getting to 3-400 like ours, then personally I would take the money. One thing to be very aware of is that not all businesses will make it out of this. And that includes big ones. I certainly wouldnt trust a company holding money of mine at the moment
  3. Probably just not had anyone who can update it yet. They are currently trying to get hold of trevor from IT, but he was laced last night and still on his first coffee* *all speculation
  4. So, Im here to tell you what most of you already know, and was looking more and more likely in any case. For the first time since 2008, husky camp has now been officially cancelled. The UK government made it clear that any form of hospitality places will not be open until July at the very earliest. I suspect even in that case, camp sites will not likely be one of the first of those, and in any case its of course too late for camp regardless. The Welsh government are actually more locked down at present than that of the rest of the UK, with restriction of movement of people. The camp site have already said they will be in contact to refund, based on an email many of us had from them over the weekend, so going to see what we get through today. If you have not booked through the site, then you would need to contact whoever you have booked with. A couple of questions I have already been asked a few times, so will put the answers on here so I'm not repeating it to each person involved. Are you going to be setting dates for next year? OK, so we have been caught out by this coronavirus, as has everyone else in the world. Now however, we are not caught out. We know about it, and its here. So the issue is we have no idea when this will end, and when social distancing will end. Until there is a vaccine, a treatment, or it wipes itself out, the honest answer is we cannot set a date for camp. While there are trials for vaccines at the moment, there is absolutely no guarantee they will work. This time next year, we could be perfectly fine. However we could also be in a position where camp family holidays are possible, but social distancing in general still applies. For us, that would make camp almost impossible. Therefore there will be no dates set for any camp, until we get the complete all clear. Otherwise we risk the chance of making a decision where people lose money, and I personally wont put anyone in that position. The camp are offering 120% voucher. Should I take that or take the refund? I cant really answer this question. I believe they are time limited, so based on what I said above, Im not taking that chance. Personally we will be getting our money refunded. If you chose otherwise, just bear in mind you may well not be able to use it for husky camp, as it might have expired before we set one, for the reasons I mentioned above.
  5. We paid through camp, so until they actually close, there is not a chance in hell they will refund us LOL. It is what it is. Much more to worry about than money I wouldnt have had in my pocket anyway.
  6. Update Camp is closing after today, all of its parks, until 1st May. We have to be realistic. If they are asking people to stay in for 12 weeks, the chances of it opening again on 1st May is practically zero. It just not going to happen. At some point its likely you will be asked if you want a refund or a credit. I have seen people have been offered credit to use only in 2020. I have to be very clear and say if camp cannot go ahead in may, there is no guarantee we will be able to get one in 2020. There are 2 very big reasons for this. People first of all would have to rearrange holidays at short notice. We have to bear in mind that every other person on the park will be doing the same. We simply wont be able to get the caravans at the same time. At the end of the day, there are bigger things to worry about than camp at the moment. We will re-evaluate only once we know 100% what we are able to do. You stay safe yourself over there too m8
  7. Same m8. It is what it is.
  8. While I know its pretty obvious, I feel a responsibility as one of the people who run the site to state the position we currently are in. Parkdean Resorts have closed all facilities at the park, other than accommodation so far. So there will be no food facilities there, no toilet facilities for people who are camping, or showers etc. The situation with supermarkets at the moment is a pain in the arse just shopping for ourselves, with us being only allowed to purchase 3 items of any product line in most supermarkets. So bulk purchasing for camp is simply going to be impossible to do. Pubs and restaurants are closed for the foreseeable. So when out and about, we simply will not have anywhere we can stop to eat, drink etc. Not only for us, but for the dogs. No places to stop even to go to the toilet, as all public toilets are closed We have people within our group that will be in the 'at risk' groups I think the likelihood of them not closing the park entirely at some point is pretty close to zero. The cases of covid 19 at present are following, pretty much identically, cases in Italy as they were 2 weeks ago, with no real end in sight. To that end, while its not confirmed, I think we can safely say that camp is becoming increasingly unlikely to happen in any form at all. In addition, we have to look at our own social responsibility. I'm posting this because once it is confirmed, and I believe at some point it will be, we are inevitably going to be asked what we do next. Obviously we don't know what is going to happen, and when all this will be a distant memory. People are going to ask what the camp is doing about what we have already booked, and we dont know the answer to that question. All I can say at the moment is when/if camp is cancelled, and once things are over, we will re-evaluate at that point and see if we can get camp rearranged, once we know all the details and its viable. We have to bear in mind that people need to book holidays, and usually do so well in advance of this. Some will have had to take holidays already, and others are going to be in a position where they cant get them at shorter notice. Sorry for the doom and gloom post guys. But just getting ahead of it before it happens. We have to be realistic.
  9. Welcome back. If you know your account name, let me know and can sort that for ya.

    You would be better on a stock trading forum for questions like that.
  13. It's an official husky what? For nearly a decade now, we have been running an official husky camp for our forum members. This is a chance for people to get to meet in person, and for many a holiday that is easier to do with the dogs. This is done in a way that both people and huskies can enjoy. It was started originally as a way to get around it being difficult to have a holiday with dogs, and make it easier to enjoy due to everyone around you also having dogs of their own. When is it? Husky camp for 2020 will run from Friday 15th-22th May (Friday to Friday) Where is it? The Meadows (this is the field we are generally on, but just ask for where the husky group is staying) Ty Mawr Holiday Park Conwy LL2 9HG How do I book? You can book through their website, which is here https://www.parkdeanresorts.co.uk/location/wales/ty-mawr/ Ring this number to book for some reason the website is playing up there are caravans available 01745832079 (Let them know you want The Meadows Field if you are camping. ) LET ME KNOW ONCE YOU HAVE BOOKED, AND CAN ADD YOUR NAME TO THE LIST Is it just like a 'dog convention' type thing? Far from it LOL. Whenever I explain to people what husky camp is, in the shortest amount of words possible, it tends to be this. We go for walks and stuff during the day, enjoy food together, and generally have a good drink at night. We're about as far from being some boring convention as you could possibly get LOL. Are there many of you go? Am I welcome? Can I bring my partner etc We have had as many as 130 people at camp, and as little as 10. As you can see from that alone, the numbers can vary wildly. No need to ask if you are welcome at camp! Of course you are welcome! partners etc also welcome. All we ask is that you are responsible for the people that you bring (we are respected for being a good set of people, who are clean and tidy at camp, and don't cause trouble), adhere to camp rules, and generally don't give the site a bad name. What facilities are there? Electric hook up Static caravan hire or camping Shower and toilet blocks Eating places on and around camp Swimming pool Play area for the kids if you have any Wifi on site Where do you walk? What do you do? Just to give you a very brief idea of the kinds of things we do, based on years gone by. Some of which we do each year (of course not all). Beach walk Alyn Waters walk Talacre point walk Llandudno walk along the front Aber falls Newborough Forest - Anglesea Pensarn beach Conwy Castle / Conwy walk Sun Set walk Secure offload where all the dogs can be set free to let off some energy Meal over at the local restaurant BBQs done by Barry (small charge to cover costs between us) Breakfasts done by Dunc & Andy (small charge to cover costs between us) Camp fire and drinks at night Adult style pass the parcel (Yes, this really happens, and it hilarious!) Added a few pics here for people who haven't been before, to give you an idea. And also a video of the offlead, which is always fun Not sure who already booked at camp, and who didn't, so let me know if you already have
