Shake-up at Mahkwa Lodge???

2 posts in this topic

I think there may have been some "shaking-up" at Mahkwa Lodge.

Ever since Roger stepped down a few years ago, the place has been taking a nosedive in quality and service. This year was seriously their last chance before our large party began looking for alternatives.

Well I'm happy to report that things at Mahkwa seem to be looking up. It was quite obvious to our party of 13 that there was a notable uptick in service in every aspect this year. We couldn't help but notice that it seemed like someone is finally being held accountable for customer service after a few years of declining.

The meals were more prompt and efficient. The dockhand was actually jogging back and forth from pumping gas to getting receipts. He came over when we were almost done cleaning fish and offered to spray down and clean the cutting table for us. Room cleaners were conscientious. A few minor problems were addressed immediately. We noticed new docks across the bay in the housekeeping cabins. Sprucing-up around the grounds and buildings. Wi-Fi actually worked everywhere on the grounds. If you've been there in the past few years, you know all of these aspects have been suffering from a general lack of interest on the part of the employees.

I couldn't be more pleased to announce that at least for now, it seems like someone is taking charge and taking pride in good customer service at Mahkwa Lodge. It's still fish-camp, not a hotel. Cabins are rustic - nothing special. We're not there for luxury accommodations - just excellent fishing, a place to stay, a acceptable customer service. We will be returning next year, and hope to see the trend continue. They have a beautiful setting, perfect fishing, and a wonderful opportunity to build the reputation and revenue for the tribe, if they'd only continue to do a few things consistently right.

Heard through the grapevine that Roger Bull is in charge again at Mahkwa. Anyone able to confirm this? It would be great news if true.

    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?    
    • Gotta let youse guys carry on wid something!!! 
    • so why did you say it then!!!!
    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend....or yers?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
