For newer readers, Nightmarepatrol, the originator and administrator of the EE TICKET web site, is on record stating that active participation in the older forum formats such as this one has declined precipitously with the explosion and popularity of social media sites, as borne out by the steep decline in view numbers for all threads residing on this forum, with the very notable exception of the CLP REPORT thread.

By my count there are at least 28 CLP related sites on the internet, the vast majority of which speak to the “wholly false narrative” propaganda  rather shamelessly hyped by the local press and the self-serving, self-contracted, for-pay park management-  a managerial situation which has been stated as  illegal-



That people are not sharing their CLP memories on this thread is reflective of the documented decline of interest in older format forums such as this one, which,  likewise,  is borne out by the glaring lack of participation  of reader’s sharing their CLP memories on the Memories and Recollections - A collection of various posts thread over on the CLP JUNCTION web site forum.

The
Memories and Recollections - A collection of various posts thread was started on theCLP JUNCTION web site forum almost exactly five years ago this week:



In the five years of its existence, the Memories and Recollections - A collection of various posts[/]
thread has garnered a paltry 60 replies. While, statistically averaging one reply per month, 70% of the posts are WRAITH’s reposting of others’ posts, with very little demonstrated interest of others in posting their memories of CLP on the Memories and Recollections - A collection of various poststhread over the life of the thread.

Over the five years, the thread has garnered, 99,095 views, averaging 360 views a week.

Last week, the
Memories and Recollections - A collection of various posts thread recorded 200 views of the thread,  44% less the five year average.

Contrasted and compared to the CLP REPORT
thread which, in the period of tanking classic forum formats, in the last five years has recorded over 6,000 posts and over 1.5 MILLION views.

Readers are free to ascertain if the declining and apparent minimal-interest participation on the CLP REPORT
thread, which is countered by the atypically massively  larger viewer/readership, is indicative of readers desiring to or looking for CLP memories, or-

….are seeking the actual pertinent documented facts which are documented again and again not being reported by the “wholly false narrative” local daily press to the local tax payers and voters.

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


For the numerous newer readers, it is likely of no surprise that Gore in fact subscribes to the COMMUNITY NEWS- the local Conneaut Lake weekly newspaper, as it is often a source of detailed information which is not reported by the other more widely read local daily papers.



Robert Waid took the floor, he of the Waid Funeral Homes, beginning with some memories of the Undertakers Conventions at the Park, and the many displays set up inside the Dreamland Ballroom. The convention-going undertakers would have their displays at the Dreamland while dinners were had at the Crystal Ballroom, over at the Hotel Conneaut. After dinner, it was on over to the Beach Club for drinks, music, and dancing. Bands such as the Inkpots and Johnny Angel and Halos were among many bands that would stop by the Beach Club on their traveling circuit.

 Robert Waid said that school picnics were really a super-event at the Park with the “Ride-A-Rama” all day stamp or bracelet. Even some local charities got in to help other kids have fun at the Park. Camp-Lend-A-Hand and Children’s Hillside Home helped to make those kids’ day at Conneaut Lake Park special, also, The Meadville Rotary Club cooked hot dogs and hamburgers at the old wooden picnic pavilions, and they even served ice cream.

Waid then drifted further back in time to a place known as “Shore Acres.” His family owned a home there, and an old steamer called “Queen” docked at the Fairmont Hotel.

Drifting further still, back into the rural farmland south of the lake, Robert Waid revisited the original land parcels and tracts from the 1700's. Seems a German man had bought 1,300 acres in Summit Township around 1797. One Adam Foust, who had 11 children, was a Lieutenant for General George Washington, and received land as payment for his service in the military. He donated 6 acres to the Foust Cemetery, and an old German church once stood there. Plat maps and drawings were shown of these land plots in the 1800's.

Waid cited a lawsuit filed during the canal era for waters flooding private land around Conneaut Lake. The lawsuit alleged that nearby French Creek could be navigated with water craft, and so therefore the canal system at Conneaut
Lake wasn’t needed.

Robert Waid concluded by saying he is now retired and has chosen Conneaut Lake as the place to live for he and his family.

Chuck Groger took it from there, with, “...about those rascally Undertakers....”Seems some of their displays were to be set up in the old Convention Center at the Park, and Fred Ream taught young Chuck how to make a little bit of extra money by not setting up all of the display tables at once. The undertakers would then ask for an extra table, and Fred Ream would garner a tip, which he would split with Chuck. Seems the undertakers were a generous lot, and their conventions are the stuff of legend and lore around the Lake. Plenty of rumors abound about parties in the old “Gay ‘90's Bar” in the Hotel, with wild and rowdy bunches of ghouls who stayed up all night drinking and carrying-on, marching through the halls of the Hotel, complete with musical instruments to add to the fracas. They would sneak into the Hotel kitchen for extra olives or an extra piece of cake for dessert, trying to get the staff to go in on a practical joke, each one saying not to trust their colleagues.

Chuck and his family lived near the Merry-go-Round, inside the Park. The railroad tracks and station were near to their house, and the trains would pull in with passengers all day long. At one time, as many as seven steam trains per day arrived at Conneaut Lake Park. Wonderful smells of bread and cakes wafted out of the kitchen at the Hotel Conneaut, and Chuck and friends would stop, and then stop again, to take it all in.

Chuck ran the rides at the Park, and he strived to make it a fun and memorable experience for the patrons. He worked the Pony Track, and couldn’t figure out one time as a young girl came around the ring why she smiled the first time at him, but not the second time, but smiled again on the third pass around. Here he discovered that triplets were taking a ride on the ponies, but Chuck just thought it was another fickle female.

He recalls buses pulling into the Park on the week ends, right beside the Dodge’Em, and he loved to watch the pretty girls disembark for a fun-filled day of rides, games, and food.

Since he and his family lived inside the Park, they were there all year. Chuck would grab the bumper on Doug Fisher’s car, Officer Fisher being the CLP Police Department, and Chuck would go bumper skiing down Comstock Street in the dead of winter.

Chuck and cohorts also stole the Fat Lady out of the Fun House one night, this also in the dead of winter, because they thought that she might like to go sled riding with them.
He waxed nostalgic, saying, “If I could time-travel, I would go back to 1903 or so, when all of the grand, wooden hotels were there at the Park. They were quite splendid, and all of them had those nice, wrap-around porches (and Victorian scroll work.)”

The Hotel Mantor was built in 1897, and later had a third floor added. There was the Hotel Elmwood, the Hotel Bismark, the Park Hotel with its three stories and elegant tower, and the Puritan, which was destroyed in the 1908 fire. Chuck concluded by saying he  would also like to be at the Park in the 1930's, with all of the shows and activities, steam trains, big band music, and nice, old automobiles.

Jane Smith added to her brother Chuck’s recollections, and anyone who thinks Jane and Jean are too serious or stoic all the time, should just get the two twins talking about Conneaut Lake Park. Their expressions change and their eyes light up, as they fondly reminisce about their lives and times, back in the glory days of the  Park Jane noted that their neighborhood within the Park was very family-oriented, “very 1950's, with everyone being very close, and our Mother was home all the time.”

The twins, Jane and Jean Groger, loved living at Conneaut Lake Park. Their grandmother was a housekeeper at the Hotel Conneaut, and the girls would get beach passes for the summer. Recalls Jane, “ Every morning at 8 am, we could hear the Blue Streak firing up, with a clacketyclack of the big chain drive as the workers tested the ride. The beach
opened at 10 am, and we would head down and stay till 4 pm. Then we’d go watch the shows on the Free Act lawn.”
…”

....making some great pocket money "working" for the undertakers when they came to town..... :D

What is the purpose of all that?

I do not run the CLP Junction Web Site and only started that thread - as one of hundreds there - to have one place for all the great memories shared by members in other threads they may not read. Great posts and memories from other members can't be put in one place if they no longer post them. The only coincidence is the date that you got there.

Your stats:



My Stats:


Nobody ever called into question your knowledge and history with the park, or anything else for that matter. The plight of the park has been well documented and continues to be. How can asking people to put aside all the off the field issues for a short time and just enjoy pictures lead to some type of assault on GORE RANGE?

Your stats only confirm that once thriving conversations on those pages have since died, but that ghost eyes still stop by in the hopes something has changed. A forum implies sharing of ideas and conversation. Facebook and social media is not the reason sharing has dropped. People still prefer to hide behind an avatar and screen name. Interesting that you believe these type of sites are dying, yet you still publish volumes to them.

And as usual, you only posted PART of the article, not the entire article. I don't see the part about a certain firefighter who drove a little recklessly that people were hesitant to ride with him................. though you did post the entire article on the other site.

Let me once again provide a screen shot for the GORE to archive. The GORE RANGE is not the devil, nor is he a bad person. I would still sit with this man and enjoy conversation and an adult beverage on the porch of the hotel or at the Silver Shores. My only issue with the GORE is his treatment of other people in these forums and the agenda he attempts to push by forgetting certain facts. Other than that, I appreciate what you have to contribute.

We are guests on this forum - remember that! Feel free to start a thread called the GORE REPORT. Then you can see how many people follow you. This forum is not all about you. If the admin decided to pull the plug - poof our avenue of archiving information is gone.

The great article deserves to be shared in it's entirety:
Quote
The Conneaut  Lake Area Historical Society held their June meeting with President  Julia Catalano citing a list of announcements and invitations to the  audience. Over 50 people were in attendance, including Carl Burkett,  Bobbie Moyers, Cecil Stevenson, Betty Arbogast, Linda Douglas, Hale  Jenkins, and Jackie Houserman. Catalano reminded those present that  memberships are $10, and that after the end of 2018, anyone who is not  current, will be dropped from the mailing list for history newsletters. 
 
 The History Society Museum is open on week ends throughout the summer,  from 2 pm to 5 pm. Docents, or museum guides, are still needed, on a  voluntary basis. Puzzles are for sale, and Hale Jenkins has pig raffle  tickets, under a penny raffle format; the winner may elect for a gift  certificate at the butcher shop, generously donated by Livingston’s  Quality Meats, in downtown Conneaut Lake. There will be an Antiques  Appraisal Day forthcoming. The Appraisals of Vintage Treasures will be  held on Saturday, July 21, from 10 am to 2 pm, at the Conneaut Lake  Station #5 fire hall. Fees are 1 item for $10, 2 or 3 items for $25. The  Kayak Race is on for August with a 3-mile course out past Wolf Island.
 
 Moving on to the lecture for the evening, Diane Domnick introduced an  all-star panel of local celebrities from around Conneaut Lake, who  entertained the audience with capers and shenanigans, and wonderful  times with family and friends. Domnick herself informed the audience  that she and her family spent time at the Iroquois Boating and Fishing  Club, located on the east side of Conneaut Lake. There, she and her  family swam and water-skied during the summer days, before meandering up  the shoreline to the fabulous Oakland Beach Hotel, with its grand boat  jutting out toward the water. In the winter time, the family would watch  snow mobiles and even cars out on the lake as winter enthusiasts  enjoyed silvery scenery and ice fishing. Conneaut Lake is beautiful all  year round as the panel stated when they introduced themselves. 
 
 Keith Hough, Robert Waid, Julia Luty-Catalano, Jane Smith, Chuck Groger,  and Audie Hayes plied the room with stories and tales of days gone by  with Jean Shanley opting in for her siblings by adding appropriate  embellishments to the stories. The panel and audience waxed nostalgic as  they recollected the old Mohawk Tavern, Carl Burkett’s dad’s famous  Dandelion Blossom wine, the old Indian Museum, steam trains, Victorian  architecture, Revolutionary land parcels, and hoodwinks and shenanigans  by nameless instigators, who nearly drowned in the lake or got arrested  for thievery and other mischief.
 
 Life is better at the lake, as Julia Luty-Catalano recalled the days  gone by, when her father purchased a cottage here at the lake. The Luty  Family truly loved the lake, and would begin their season in March, when  cold winds still blew in off of the water. They would stay all Summer  long, eventually winding things up in November on the weekends. Since  there was no furnace in the cottage, an oil stove was used to keep  things warm. 
 
 The original cottage was steeped in Lake history, having been purchased  by her grandparents, Bert and Jessie Luty back in 1911. The cottage was  formerly owned by steamer captain Thomas Sullivan, who piloted the  “Pittsburgh Storm,” also known as the “Storm,” or the “Pittsburgh.”
 
 Captain Sullivan docked at the Oakland Beach Hotel, and his cottage was  just down the shore – a little way from the hotel. The steamer  “Iroquois” docked at the old Midway Hotel and these steamers would ferry  passengers across Conneaut Lake, who had arrived by train at Conneaut  Lake Park.
 
 The old hotels on the east side of the lake engaged in fierce  competition for passengers and guests, and the ferry boats were a common  sight plying the Snow Waters back in the day. Luty Cottage burned to  the ground in 1923, and a new one was constructed in 1924.
 
 Bronson Luty, the local historian and author, was 18 years old by then,  and he just loved Conneaut Lake. He later penned his memoirs, publishing  a book entitled, “The Lake as it Was.”
 
 Julia and the family would walk to the Oakland Beach Hotel Coffee shop  and buy a newspaper, and the remaining 7 cents would be spent on penny  candy. They also had a wooden boat in which Julia, being the youngest  Luty child, would sit in the bow. She was the captain of the small,  wooden vessel, and sitting up in the bow made for the grandest of  adventures.
 
 Bronson Luty has since passed away, but Julia and her family still enjoy  their lake house, spending summers near Midway and Oakland,  respectively. 
 
 Audie Hays joined the discussion by saying that this father had also  purchased a lake cottage, which was later converted into a full time  house for the family. Audie’s father drove from Conneaut Lake to  Youngstown, OH, every day to work.  Audie recalled being just two years  old in a stroller as his parents walked the Midway down to the Beach  Club at Conneaut Lake Park. Now he has grandchildren and he would like  them to be able
 to see Conneaut Lake Park.
 
 The Hays Family were avid water skiers, and Audie held up some of the  skis that he used on the lake. “A wooden boat oar or a metal lid from a  garbage can worked great behind a 15HP Evinrude,” said Audie, his humor  and laughter contagious; he waved the oar and lid as he made  show-and-tell. He grabbed a Connelly-brand water ski, noting that he  paid $200 for it at the time.
 
 Names such as Bobby Baker and Kate Steiner were brought up, as Audie  fondly recalled the sunny days of the past. The Hilton twins, Bill and  Bert, piloted the Barbara J, as did Audie Hays, with Audie noting that  the staff at the Hotel Conneaut always wore white uniforms. He and his  friends would go to the Dreamland Ballroom every Saturday night to watch  the bands play music.
 
 Next he grabbed a Ronix wake board, saying that the younger generation  seems to want to use just one large board, instead of two skis, out on  the water. He flipped the board over to the reverse, and with much  rolling of the eyes, said, “Get a load of this, she’s why all the young  men switched to wake boards,” revealing a beautiful 19-40's style pin-up  girl in summer attire on the other side.
 
 Keith Hough then took the floor, announcing to the audience that he had  arrived at tonight’s meeting and was in the process of looking for a  seat in the audience, when he was commandeered to sit on this panel. He  laughed and then spoke about his life on Silver Street, some distance  away from Conneaut Lake Park, where his family has lived for many  decades. A far-away look came into his eyes as he spoke about his  Grandfather “Chappie” being a barber in nearby Harmonsburg. His family  also owned a grocery store during the Great Depression. Keith said he  never worked at Conneaut Lake Park, but he was forced into service at  the old Elmwood Hotel therein by his grandmother. Keith was only  fourteen years old at the time, and his grandmother worked at the  Elmwood.
 
 She grabbed him the one night and informed him that he was going to work  the next morning in the kitchen of the Elmwood - as a dishwasher. Keith  recalls being able to look out the kitchen window at the Elmwood, over  to a girls dormitory and the beach. While Keith washed dishes, he  admired the view of said beach, but also admired all the girls and their  sunbathing activities.
 
 He quietly added that his brother had driven the hearse in a funeral  procession for the one of the sons from the Groger Family. Keith went on  to talk about the many Undertakers Conventions held at Conneaut Lake  Park, and how his brother would drive the hearses over to Harmonsburg  for a fill-up and to be washed at the old Esso gas station there.
 
 The undertakers had even asked Keith to be a “casket model,” but he was  only 10 years old at the time and thought it might be too spooky, so he  said “no.” A man in the audience concurred with Keith, noting that the  hearses would pull in to the filling station in Harmonsburg, and the  undertakers would pay $5 for a wash on a hearse, and then would also  give the lads a $10 tip! That was big stuff back then! 
 
 Robert Waid took the floor, he of the Waid Funeral Homes, beginning with  some memories of the Undertakers Conventions at the Park, and the many  displays set up inside the Dreamland Ballroom. The convention-going  undertakers would have their displays at the Dreamland while dinners  were had at the Crystal Ballroom, over at the Hotel Conneaut. After  dinner, it was on over to the Beach Club for drinks, music, and dancing.  Bands such as the Inkpots and Johnny Angel and Halos were among many  bands that would stop by the Beach Club on their traveling circuit.
 
  Robert Waid said that school picnics were really a super-event at the  Park with the “Ride-A-Rama” all day stamp or bracelet.

Seems the  undertakers were a generous lot, and their conventions are the stuff of  legend and lore around the Lake. Plenty of rumors abound about parties  in the old “Gay ‘90's Bar” in the Hotel, with wild and rowdy bunches of  ghouls who stayed up all night drinking and carrying-on, marching  through the halls of the Hotel, complete with musical instruments to add  to the fracas.
 They would sneak into the Hotel kitchen for extra olives or an extra  piece of cake for dessert, trying to get the staff to go in on a  practical joke, each one saying not to trust their colleagues.
 
 Chuck and his family lived near the Merry-go-Round, inside the Park. The  railroad tracks and station were near to their house, and the trains  would pull in with passengers all day long.

 was a housekeeper at the Hotel Conneaut, and the girls would get beach  passes for the summer.

The beach opened at 10 am, and we  would head down and stay till 4 pm. Then we’d go watch the shows on the  Free Act lawn.”
 
 Jean Shanley added that they and their friends would play in the streets  of the Park, and also out back at the rail road station, balancing and  twirling on the train rails. The Groger house had the emergency phone  relay back in the day. Emergency calls would come in, and the Grogers  would relay the calls to the fire department. Bob Jaime was a stock car
 driver, and when he drove the fire engine, none of the firemen wanted to  ride with him because of how fast he drove the big rig. On the  weekends, lonely wives would call on the emergency line, looking for  their wayward husbands, demanding to know who was talking on the other  end, and leaving the Groger Family perplexed.
 
 Most Saturday nights, Mr. and Mrs. Groger could be found at the Mohawk Tavern, dancing
 or spending some grown-up time with their friends. Jane informed the  audience that one time when Country singer Willie Nelson was playing at  the Beach Club, he offered her twin Jean a marijuana cigarette, which  Jean politely declined.
 
 The twins also recall the many Funeral Directors Conventions, and the  shenanigans and horseplay that took place over several days at the Park  while the undertakers were in town. Some of the funeral directors would  stay at the Beachview Manor, facing Conneaut Lake, back when the  miniature golf was right beside it and the Fun House. 
 
 Some in the audience added their stories to those of the panel. All  agreed that Conneaut Lake Park is a wonderful asset to the Lakeland  community. They would like to see it restored to the days of the Midway,  the Penny Arcade and Skeeball, topped off with some Park Fries and  Italian Ice from Candyland - under the beautiful Dreamland Ballroom.  Sounds of the Blue Streak running, the buzzers in the Devil’s Den, and  the Fat Lady cackling from deep within the bowels of the Fun House  continue to fill a person’s day dreams, even now.
 
 The audience gave a round of applause to the panel for sharing their wonderful memories of Conneaut Lake and the Park.
 
 The CLAHS meets every third Monday of the month at 7:30 pm, at the  Station #5 fire hall on Rt. 618. There is a 50/50 drawing, and punch and  cookies are served.

LOL response I expected - thanks for confirming transmission received, Ghost Rider!

New topic
: Seems the GORE forgot to inform the "newer readers" that the Bankruptcy Court approved the dispersal of funds and abnormal payments from the last lot sale.............. without objection and canceling a scheduled hearing on the matter because of no objection. The judge signed the DEFAULT order granting the request from the park. That means those oh so concerned citizens and creditors filed no objections to the proposal for the park to divert those funds. Last time I checked Mr. Prischak's rides were still on site and being used with the portable coaster still occupying a spot in the 618 parking lot.

So, if as the GORE has so exhaustively attempted to lay out for all the ghost eyes, and for those creditors who signed off on the reorganization and discharge, there has been no effort by the citizenry or the elected officials to draw attention to those facts that the reorganization plan is a failure, the park should be liquidated, and the trust dissolved due to a lack of ability to sustain itself as currently reported to the court in the paperwork.....

Funny, with all the exhaustive work done and illustrated here, why none of that has been presented to the court or pushed by a group of creditors.......... any ideas?

LOL response I expected - thanks for confirming transmission received, Ghost Rider!

New topic
: Seems the GORE forgot to inform the "newer readers" that the Bankruptcy Court approved the dispersal of funds and abnormal payments from the last lot sale.............. without objection and canceling a scheduled hearing on the matter because of no objection. The judge signed the DEFAULT order granting the request from the park. That means those oh so concerned citizens and creditors filed no objections to the proposal for the park to divert those funds. Last time I checked Mr. Prischak's rides were still on site and being used with the portable coaster still occupying a spot in the 618 parking lot.

So, if as the GORE has so exhaustively attempted to lay out for all the ghost eyes, and for those creditors who signed off on the reorganization and discharge, there has been no effort by the citizenry or the elected officials to draw attention to those facts that the reorganization plan is a failure, the park should be liquidated, and the trust dissolved due to a lack of ability to sustain itself as currently reported to the court in the paperwork.....

Funny, with all the exhaustive work done and illustrated here, why none of that has been presented to the court or pushed by a group of creditors.......... any ideas?






........... 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!!

Maybe CLP is just too big to fail . . . .

Yeahhhhhhhh like I said, this is not a solely CLP memories site and never has been.

Memories light the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories of the way we were
Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another for the way we were
Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line ...


 

....470,000 congratulated views of the CLP Report thread achieved by April of 2014.....

- averages out to 5,220 views a month for the first six years, eight months of the CLP REPORT threads existence.

As of this morning, since the April 2014 congratulations.....

- 1,795,688 views of the CLP Report thread have been recorded...

....averaging out to 46,042 views a month for the last four years, three months.........EIGHT times more than the 2007 to 2014 average.

The number of CLP Report thread views in June of 2018-

....67,604........12.9 times more than than the 2007 to 2017 monthly average.

....scattered pictures of the smiles we have left behind....

Most of those views are from you and all the other names you have registered in case you get banned from the site........... LOL

Nice deflection. Still no SUBSTANCE from the self proclaimed grand pooba! All that busy work you have displayed here, yet none of it has shown up where it matters.



The question once again recurs: "With all the exhaustive  work done and illustrated here, why none of that has been presented to  the court or pushed by a group of creditors.......... any ideas?"

SCORECARD:
SNO may be on to something....

....for recent readers who may have missed the previous posting of the park’s “ dispersal of funds and abnormal payments”... here and on other social media venues, and might be wondering just what the payments were-
