Can't pay the bills at that price, not that they are paying them now anyway.  Say they draw 2000 people a day at $5 that is $20k for the weekend if they have would extend it more than one day.  Can't pay very many bills with that, insurance, wages, maintenance, debt, utilities, EPACC management fees.....

Since it seems to have gone dead in here for a little while, here are a few pictures from the park from over the last few weeks. Please don't try to make assumptions about crowd size and other insignificant things as these pictures may have been taken at varying times throughout the day or evening. Enjoy them for what they are....... random pictures.                                   
ENJOY!!!!

....with the park management officially informing the bankruptcy court that the park does not have sufficient funding from ongoing operations to pay its agreed to bankruptcy debt payments, does not have sufficient funding from ongoing operations to pay for needed capital improvements, and does not have sufficient funding from ongoing operations to pay to pay for maintenance which is required for the park-

....it is nice to see one of the few remaining park volunteers paying for paint and brushes to finally paint the the dismally maintained world’s sole remaining Tumble Bug ride-



The volunteer says it will take a awhile to finish painting the Bug tubs as the park will be open every day of the entire fourth of July week. And he said he may start on the Bug arms.

I would be happy to help said volunteer..........Some kudos need to go out to the people maintaining the flower beds and the plants. They are out there every weekend doing what they can.

Happy 4th Doc!  And of course everyone else. I will try to snap more pictures of the hotel grounds for your nostalgic purposes this weekend. The hedges and flowers have been taken care of pretty well. LOL

….for the newer readers perhaps coming here to learn of the actual reality of the park’s ongoing financial situation, posted below are graphs illustrating the park’s own facts as officially reported to the bankruptcy court in the park’s own bankruptcy court filings, and are the official document facts which have been totally ignored and gone unreported by the local press to local -

In addition to owing over $558,000 in declared bankruptcy debt on their sewer taxes/fees, per court filings by Allan Shaddinger, attorney for the Conneaut Lake Joint Municipal Authority (the lake area sewer system agency), and not reported by the local press, the park has not paid its sewer bill to the Conneaut Lake Joint Municipal authority since February of 2016.

And contrary to local press and park reports that the park has paid off its back property tax debt (the park told the tax bodies it would pay off its back property tax debts by the end of March……2017
), per court filings by  Lawrence Bolla, attorney for the unofficial (ad hoc) committee of real estate tax creditors, the park still owes the taxing districts approximately $76,000.00 on the park's back property debt.

However, newer readers are certainly free to not make assumptions regarding crowd size and other insignificant things when viewing current pix of the park.

There was a time on this page that people were happy to share their memories and observations freely without having to be judged or spoken down to. There were times when facts needed to be provided to even out a wholly false narrative and to allow folks to be informed so they could come to their OWN conclusions. The voices that once contributed here have their memories and of course their opinions, but they are most likely well educated on what the current state of the situation is. We can debate what SHOULD BE done, what COULD BE done, and WHAT WILL become of the park, but most of the folks here could care less what is going on in the courts and what the media is - or is not reporting. They just want to know what is going on NOW!!

So, for those that have lost their voice, or who feel like your memories are being compared to someone else's and dismissed................... enjoy the pictures without the need to be constantly bombarded by the "off the field" issues.

Oh, and GORE, you might want to secure a copy of one of the recent COMMUNITY NEWS articles................. you might find it personally associative.

Again, for your viewing pleasure..... ENJOY THE PICTURES (good-bad-indifferent)!!!

…….WRAITH, I agree that the Hotel hedges have been done well, from your first photos.  When I did them, it didn't cost them anything. (grin) {for some reason I can not post the "smiles" any more }  The latest pics you just posted showed them in need of a mild haircut trim, so they look better. ( IMHO )  I also agree with your observation and comment about the change in poster's comments here.  Let's have more partake of a "half full" bottle of wine comments.  (There goes those darn "" again )  The quotes just want to keep around me ! (grin)…...LOCK, Yes, it is good to see you in your Nice Car and I miss talking to you and the Mrs.

The current profit, debt load, exorbitant fees the EPACC are charging the bankrupt CLP, in addition to the taxes still owed (although widely believed to have been paid off) are what is going NOW.
There are lots sites and Facebook groups that are solely focused on teary-eyed memories, photos of the park operating, and high hopes. Those who have been here since the Hey Martha days (12-13 years?!?!) know this is not one of those sites.
More recent new-comers might not be aware of the intended and original purpose of this forum and, in all due respect, those who might think otherwise are mistaken.  The very title of this forum was carried over from the Hey Martha days right after the abysmal end-of-season financial report was released in the Tribune, way back when.

Thanks for contributing SNO................
 
Posting a few recent pics, without an agenda, for those who have not been able to get to the park or see things for themselves is part of the title "CLP Report". Not everyone worships at the Facebook altar.

As someone who read every page of this forum before contributing....... well no need to address the rest of your statement - with all due respect. I do wonder why none of those "Hey Martha" people contribute like they used to, though. It was a much better page back then.  ;) ;)

…for newer readers, HEY MARTHA was a national internet forum operated by COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER HOLDINGS INC. (CNHI), the parent company of the MEADVILLE TRUBUNE. CNHI is a collection of smaller town papers across the nation, and the corporation hosted a national forum where each newspaper had its own site where locals could discuss local issues.

Of note, the CONNEAUT LAKE PARK thread on the MEADVILLE TRIBUNE  site was by far the most viewed thread in all of the thousands of threads found on the national CNHI forum, surpassing the second most viewed site by over a factor of 2 with over 850,000 views.

CNHI terminated its national HEY MARTHA forum due to a series of law suits, and the CLP thread was replicated here on the EE TICKET CLP thread here, like wise, is by far the most viewed thread on the forum.
