As you can probably guess, our trips are off for now. Calder reopened for awhile, so we went over to check it out. You had to wear a mask and they checked your temperature on the way in. Several of the machines were turned off to allow for social distancing between players. They also installed clear plastic barriers between some machines.
They clean the machines fairly often, but we took along our own cleaner to wipe off the buttons when we sat down to play a machine. Lucky’s was open with a limited menu, but the buffet was closed. No BINGO or other specials going on either. The self-serve drink bars were closed, but they had people circulating on the casino floor taking drink orders.
They will probably do the same things when they reopen again. As soon as they do and as soon as we know we’ll pass the word along.
However, we still have the challenge of everyone sitting together on the bus for the ride to the casino and back, and we just don’t feel comfortable with that. We feel like we need to wait until things get “better”, hopefully they’ll come out with a vaccine that works. If you’ve paid for a trip we’ll carry your money forward. Contact us if you’d prefer to get a refund.
