Will somebody please explain why the May 2-4 weekend was actually held a week before what is really the May 2-4 weekend?
There is likely some reason for celebrating Victoria Day a week earlier than it should be celebrated, but had the unofficial first long weekend of the summer actually fallen on Queen Victoria’s birthday, we may have had weather more conducive to golf.
Scanning the weather map across the country a couple of times this past weekend, it looked like a mixed bag of conditions. Here in Ontario, there were unseasonably cool temperatures, high winds and frost in the south, while northern regions even got some snow.
In Alberta, they got teased big time as temperatures dropped about 20 degrees and some places got snow.
There was some rain in the east but, oddly enough, St. John’s, Nfld., was the hot spot of the nation.
Ah, those hazy, lazy, crazy days of summer, prime time for the golf industry. So, how was business over the long weekend for you?
We’d be interested in hearing your thoughts. Just wander over to the new GNN Poll on the home page and register your thoughts on how this past weekend went for you. Was May 2-4 a reason to celebrate, or is a 2-4 needed to drown your sorrows about a slow long weekend?
While you’re at it, why not tell us how the entire first few weeks of the season is going in the GNN Forum?
JOB CONFIDENCE: GNN readers are feeling optimistic about potential job cuts at their particular facilities.
In last week’s GNN Poll, we asked readers how they would describe potential job cuts where they are employed. Optimism ruled as 75 per cent described those possible cuts as minimal, while 25 per cent said they could be substantial.
Of course, readers are still welcome to vote by going into our poll archive section and registering their votes on a variety of past issues that we will revisit in a future blog.
