Please respond as soon as possible!  It is difficult for me to promote the event, when I only have 3 open businesses.

Adirondack Christmas on Main Street will be November 24-26, 2017.  All businesses can participate - you do not need to be open!  If you donate something for the Basket Raffle, your name and website or phone number will be listed.

Please fill out the attached form and return to the Inlet Information Office as soon as possible.  I have created a page on InletNY.com under Events that will list all of the activities going on that weekend and will also list all of the shops that will be open.  Please respond so I can list you there!  Advertising for this event has already started, it will be nice for people to be able to see that we will be open!

Thank you!

IABA Meeting & Notes

E-mail sent by Inlet Information Office, Tuesday, September 26th, 2017 @ 2:05pm

Reminder that our next IABA meeting will be Tuesday, October 3 at 6:00 p.m. in the Senior Room of the Inlet Town Hall when we will be stuffing 200 bags for Adirondack Kids Day.  If you have something you would like us to put in the bags, please drop it off at Inlet Town Hall before 6:00 p.m. on October 3.

Notes from the last IABA meetings:

  • In attendance on 9/7/17 was: Reggie Chambers, Danicia Nerschook, Jane Slack, Adele Burnett, Paul Chambers, Mark Mayer, Lynn Durkin & Charlie Frey.  In attendance on 9/8/17 was: Dave Scranton, Amanda Miller, Adele Burnett, Dennis Hudson, John & Sarah Frey.
  • Parking Problems in Inlet  Parking has always been a problem in Inlet.  During the last couple meetings a few ideas were discussed to help the parking situation in Inlet.  - 15-minute parking signs in front of the post office. - Signage at the Fourth Lake Boat Launch educating people that it is illegal to park on the sidewalk and informing them of alternate parking available at Fern Park. - Asking employers to come up with alternate parking options for their employees.
  • Speed Change into Inlet  It was noted that the start of the 30 mph speed limit coming into town from Eagle Bay would soon begin earlier.  The current 30 mph sign is located just after Sunset Beach Cottages.  A new 30 mph sign will be added before what used to be known as Crosswinds - before the Cedar Creek Bridge.
  • Adirondack Kids Day  Bag stuffing for this event will take place during the next IABA meeting (October 3).  The event is sponsored by Kiwanis of the Central Adirondacks and will take place on Saturday, October 7.
  • Adirondack Ice Bowl  The organizers of the AIB have been struggling with the idea of not being able to continue holding the event in Inlet.  They have families that they need to spend more time with and the event does not bring in enough money and liquor liability insurance for the event is costly.  This group had a lengthy discussion about ways to keep it going.  Their discussions turned towards changing the event to a youth hockey tournament with rinks at The Woods Inn, Big Moose Inn and Great Pines.  After the meeting several left with plans to speak with others about the youth hockey idea - Jane Slack planned to speak with Kiwanis and Jim Connerty, Charlie Frey planned to speak with Jim O'Brien, and Mark Mayer planned to speak with Devlin Hennessy & Greg Clark.

Adirondack Ice Bowl posted this statement on their Facebook Page on September 18:

"We regret to announce that the Adirondack Ice Bowl will not be returning to Inlet in 2018. We are in the process of determining what's best for the future of the event. We hope to soon share with you what that will entail. Thank you again to our players, fans, sponsors and volunteers for all of your support over the past 9 years!

Regards, 
AIB"

Thursday, September 28 at 7:00 p.m. in Inlet Town Hall there will be a meeting to discuss forming a committee to work on a master plan for Fern Park.  Everyone interested in the future of Fern Park is welcome to attend.

Trunk or Treat at Fern Park

E-mail sent by Inlet Information Office, Friday, September 22nd, 2017 @ 11:16am

We were approached by a couple who have a lot of Halloween decorations, including many animated ones who want to bring them to Inlet for the kids (and adults) to enjoy.  So we are thinking about holding a trunk or treat at Fern Park the night of the Inlet Youth Commission's Halloween Parade & Party - Friday, October 27, maybe starting at 4:30.  The YC's Parade starts at 6:30, and we know that the Old Forge Library has a party the same day from 2:00-4:00.

Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts about this.

Thanks!
Adele

Fall Festival - No Food Vendors

E-mail sent by Inlet Information Office, Thursday, September 14th, 2017 @ 4:31pm

Attached is a brochure for this weekend's Fall Festival.  

As you will notice, we had bad luck with food vendors this year and the only things for sale right now are kettle corn & pretzels.  The Youth Commission will be there Saturday only selling popcorn and there will be someone selling coffee and scones on Sunday only.  NO FOOD TRUCKS!  We had 2, and they both had to pull out for reasons of their own.  I have reached out to a few local not-for-profits with no luck and I have contacted over a dozen food trucks out of Utica.  I even had two locals who each thought they might be able to pull something together if they found help, but they did not connect soon enough.  There is one Utica truck who might be able to show up and sell after 1:00 on Saturday, but not at all on Sunday....

Unfortunately, people will not hang out at Fern Park as long as I and the vendors would like, but maybe they will find food in Inlet before they leave town.  The vendors are not going to be happy.  Many of them are not able to leave their booth for more than 10 minutes at a time, and will not be able to go anywhere for food.  And if the vendors are unhappy, the event is unhappy.  If anyone has ideas, let me know.  Maybe one of the restaurants might want to send staff to take orders and bring the vendors takeout?
