Welcome new football / basketball field

The new activities that are going to replace the minigolf are: 4 ping pong tables and a football / basketball field.
During these last years we had 2 ping pong tables below the old swimming pool. The place was rather terrible because the ceiling was low and also because there were some camping plots just in front of it that were disturbed by the noise. Now we move these tables to the new location and add two more.
We have been having a green football field outside the campsite, quite big, but the inconvenience is that the door to that place needs to be open, and this poses security issues, because easily non-clients could enter the campsite without control. The football field also was sometimes 'occupied' by cows that escaped from nearby fields and that made the area dirty, even breaking the nets of the football goals. The new football area will add basketball facilities and will be totally inside the campsite.
In the next weeks we are going to report about the progress that is been made. We hope to have it ready in about one month.

Goodbye minigolf

As you may have been suspecting these last months, the minigolf is going to dissappear in this 2013 season. We are going to replace it by some other activity that we hope will be equally or more successful among young people. This will be detailed in several days, in a new post.
Interest in the minigolf was high some thirty years ago, when it seemed that campsite went obligatory with a minigolf, but in the later years the trend seems to go in other directions. Moreover, our minigolf was full of palms and other plants that grew very much, so much that they were too dense for the small area. These plants will be now of very good use in the new playground area in front of the apartments.
