I've heard nothing different and they have previously emailed me directly as I am an "owner" there. FYI, they call me a tenant... :eek:

It opens Friday. They're calling it a soft opening, not sure what that means, but as of this morning, still on for Friday.

Was there on the last day for that fry bread taco, and was told that is about the only thing from the old menu they were keeping! .... I think we'll wait for a few days, as I'm sure mass amounts of Lookie Lou's will make it hard to find a slip, get a table, or pull a handle! ;)

As of last weekend, Tecopa was going to the old marina. It will start to the new marina Friday morning. Not sure on the slips, but they did start taking room reservations a week or so ago.

Anyone heard if the Tecopa will still be going to the old marina?
Are rental slips available at new marina?
Slips are still available, they called me to ask if I still wanted my spot next summer.

Maybe the new casino will kick so much ass that they'll lower our space rent rather than the usual increase this Jan.
Lol

Is the ferry still going to pick up people at the old casino? Is the boat house still staying? Is Vicky still working there? Damn, I should go out and pull weeds and answer these damn questions myself!

I think Ferry is new stop only and Vicky was there two weeks ago. All I got.

Looking back at what i posted re:Campground. Did not intend to indicate the campground has been cleared out.The area along the fence bordering the Hotel does look like could be part of Hotel,just my opinion.The fence is still the temp National Rental Fence.

I heard a rumor they were going to shut down the campground (eventually) so they can redo all the campsites making them slanted so all have a lake view...this supposedly came from Butch. Haven't seen him to ask in person yet

I’m in Tu Ku Kan (restaurant). So far so good. People are a little confused as would be expected. Just saw the Tecopa come in and packed top and bottom.

Whatever they decide to do,that campground and Havasu Landing is a Paradise.I have lived here 12 years full time on property we own and enjoyed everyday of those 12 years.Gotta say any information regarding the Landing seems always to be rumor.

Come on!! I gotta be able to park my golf cart closer than that???!!
I just spoke with the Resort Manager. The issue is the wash between the campground and the new place. They understand that it is a priority, but my guess is we will be parking on the campground side and walking over for a while. They’re talking about a tram/golf cart type shuttle thingee, but my guess is we will be walking the 50 yards for a while.

You can go to the end of the road, follow the trail, and get to the parking lot. Not sure how long that access will be open though.

Bummed the new casino light on building doesn't blink, just blends in with all the rest of the lights. Hardly distinguishable from afar other than it's a bright spot along the shore.

No clue...is there smoking throughout the casino? Or designated non smoking areas. My wife would never step foot inside if all smoking

Yes, they hit soft 17 now which is bad for the player. They have countered with allowing Aces to be resplit up to 4 times which is in the player's favor.

One new thing about smoke that is a little better is they are allowing for smoke free tables if requested. They put up a little sign that says "no smoking unless you're on fire".

True, we always show visitors the blinking light and that gets their bearings in check to where things are over there.
