Two new buildings unveiled!

Aug. 18, 2008


Leo’s new playhouse The carpenters have laid down their hammers, the painters have cleaned their brushes and the new residents have moved in. The roster of impressive new buildings here on the peninsula now has two new additions. A brand-new welding shop (Léo's private playhouse) called "The Timber wolf" and the aptly named "Rod Lockers" are the newest additions to our infrastructure. The Timber wolf houses all forms of tools and welding equipment needed for repairs to any machine at the lodge. The Rod Lockers are situated near the Guide Dock and boast 22 spacious lockers for the guides and staff members. This includes a large storage locker for all of the gear our valued guests like to leave here year after year (After all - with all these clamp downs with the airlines, it is really nice to not have to worry about your gear every trip!). The lockers surround a large communal space where the boys can shoot the breeze about the day's catch (similar to a dressing room in an arena). Both buildings were completed earlier this month, but each has already earned its keep and has been extremely practical. The Timber wolf The Rod Lockershas serviced all of our quads and golf carts, while the lockers are now cozy homes for the staff's gear and other stuff. In fact, the Rod Lockers even played host to a great evening when the staff put on a music concert in a western theme known as the Ho-Down party! The functionality of both establishments has everyone pleased to see that their construction efforts are paying off. With our commitment to providing our staff and our guests with the utmost experience, who knows whats next? Inevitably, Aikens will be even more well equipped to further secure its place among the elite lodges in the industry!
