2020 Calendar of Events
Welcome to a new year and a new decade! With the completion of our 2020 Wall Calendars, all our annual events and holiday weekends are scheduled and ready for planning. We know that you like to plan your outings, family, and friend gatherings around our biggest events so the calendar is at your disposal. Pick up one or a few of our Wall Calendars and all of the events are scheduled in throughout each month and included on a master calendar of events at the back of the calendar. Calendars are $12 each and can be purchased at Member Service, Public Safety, and online at www.sandypines.com/wallcalendars. All of these events are scheduled online at www.sandypines.com/calendar. On the top of the calendar you’ll find quick link buttons to Alerts & Cancellations and 2020 Wall Calendars. On the bottom of the calendar, you can click the Subscribe to our calendar link and our calendar of events will be imported to your default calendar such as Google, Apple, or Outlook. This is a live RSS link to your calendar so as we edit our calendar, the changes will automatically push through to your calendar.
2020 Camping Reservations
Camping reservations typically increase after the New Year and continue increasing the closer we get to the summer season. Holiday weekends including Memorial Weekend, 4th of July Weekend, Christmas In August, and Labor Day Weekend always sell out so don’t delay if you plan on having family and friends join at a nearby campsite. The same is true of golf cart rentals as the Park & Garden Rental Store typically sells out in advance of the busiest holiday weekends. Head to www.sandypines.com/camping to make your reservation. With our interactive park map you can browse availability by location, see campsite photos, and check availability for individual sites. Once you’ve confirmed your campsite reservation make your golf cart reservation at www.sandypines.com/parkgardenrentaloffice. Our Park & Garden Rental Store also rents bikes, kayaks, stand up paddle boards, and row boats.
One thing we continue hearing from members is that they’d like their information sooner. Don’t be surprised if you see your Monthly Footprints arriving sooner this coming season so you have more time to digest information. The Weekend Flyer which runs from Memorial to Labor Day Weekend and typically covered Friday-Sunday events will be morphing into the Weekly Flyer and you guessed it, will contain the entire week’s events. The content of the Weekly Flyer will also mesh better with the Weekly Member E-News content which also rotates into the park information programmed on Sandy Pines Channel 27.1.
These are just a couple changes that we’re making based off your feedback. Your feedback on our communication is always welcomed and encouraged. If you have ideas on how we can improve communications on our website, social media, park TV channels, Footprints, Weekly Flyers, or anything else, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, give me a call at 616.896.8315 x107 or stop by Member Service and ask for Josh. My door is always open and I’m here to help!
