Lunch and Learn

 

rezStream is excited to announce an in-person “user’s group/lunch and learn” session immediately following the CMR Fall Conference on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 @ 12:30 – 1:30 pm. 

Crackerbarrel Zoom Sessions

NEW for 2020/2021 Winter Season!  Intended to curb the craving for community due to having a cancelled Fall Conference and crazy season, we have developed four Crackerbarrels via Zoom.   (Crackerbarrels are the most popular portion of CMR Workshops and Conferences – they are simple forums for resorters to ask questions of other resorters.)   Utilize Your Resort Community: let’s pool our knowledge!

Spring Workshop

The CMR Spring Workshop was held March 27 and March 28, 2021 and it was a success! It was all virtual. We found that we were able to accomplish that medium. However, we think that Resorters like to see and talk to other Resorters in person. We will have the CMR Fall Conference in person. So plan on coming to that! The Spring Workshop featured expert speakers, cracker barrels, vendor specials and resort panels. We weren’t able to have the CMR Fall Conference in 2020. So, the Annual Meeting was held during the Spring Workshop. 


 

Fall Resort Tour                  

Fall 2021:  Mark Your Calendars for Wednesday, September 22nd. 
This is back by popular demand! Last fall, because of Covid, we held regional resort gatherings. This year we will be back to our resort tours. Mark your calendars for September 22nd. More detail to follow, but it will be in the Marcell and Bigfork areas. We will be able to walk through resorts, talk to the owners, get ideas from what they do, talk with other Resorters. It is a great social and learning activity!

Fall 2020:  Due to COVID, we cancelled our Fall Resort Tour and scheduled outdoor resort gatherings instead. Thank you to the following resorts that offered their outside facilities for these gatherings: Ten Mile Lake Resort in Dalton, Diamond Lake Resort in Atwater, Two Inlets Resort in Park Rapids and Cedar Point Resort in Marcell. We appreciate your efforts.

Fall 2019: We toured in the Cass Lake/Blackduck Area. 

Thank you to our host resorts Lost Acres Resort, Cass Lake Lodge and Joe’s Lodge, and Sah Kah Tay Beach Resort.

Over 50 of your fellow resorters saw how these resorts operate and gathered new ideas, shared stories from the season and learned from other resorters. 

It is always a great time to see old friends or make new friends and just spend a relaxing day away from your resort after a busy summer season.
