YT. I actually don't mind if they are or not for the August trip. I would like to know which blocks they are currently working on.

I would be amazed if they are doing the Springs in August. No logic to picking that area. Congress and Carousel I lay odds. I would bet that they will put fencing around 1 block at a time.

Im trying to find out. The air cons were being done in Carousel. Check in desk was closed and moved one day last week, but then reopened again the next day at usual place- bit weird. Artists Pallet has just had its floor redone and half of it is now walled off.

The Palette was being re floored for a few days when we were there. They did 50% at a time so it was still usable.

The air cons on the Carousel sounds more like a catastrophic failure to me than a refurb

All I can get so far Tom from people there this last week is the workmen were in Congress Park, some of the car park also now taken up with building materials, all the aircons been ripped out and redone in Carousel, Artist's Pallette now half boarded off, and the check in desk was closed and at a temporary location for a day, now it's back (maybe flooring there too?). I'll let you know if I glean anything else from the various Facebook groups I'm on.

I'm not blaming her as I suspect that they will not be told for ages and I suspect Members will be told in about a year or so

YT. Your mission, should you decide to accept it! Which blocks in Congress have they started on? I'm there mid August and need to know
I will keep you posted 😉👍

YT. Good find, well done. A few things leap out.

1. I wonder why they started that end of Congress Park and not the other? The other end is a few months older. Things like that intrigue me!

2. Those signs are warning indicators only and not meant to safeguard the unwary or plain nosey who wander in. I suspect they are just the start and we will see full fencing shortly.

3. The contractor is going to need the car park area by that block. I wonder how they will manage when they move to the next block right by the CP bus stop? Not much area there to utilise.

I thought the same Tom, full fencing must be going up. The block is empty with no guests in Im told, so Id expect they will start putting that fencing up soon.
As per intel the other day, someone else said that theyd put some materials in the car park, no photos of that though.

OKW is a lovely Resort, never stayed there but my Cosuin has owned there since they were built.
Stayed there in January, rooms are indeed beautiful x

Tom what is your guess re them getting to 2110 by July, wondering if to panic or not.

I am away to email my contact
