HOWDY!

We just wrapped up another great season. Guest feedback has been overwhelmingly positive - we are thrilled to hear from guests both in person and on social media. The food and hospitality received special attention this year - thanks to all the staff for working so hard to make that happen. Camp closed for the season on Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and will reopen  May 1st, 2016!

New Management for 2016
 
When the camp reopens there will be some new faces. After more than three decades, ownership of the ranch has officially passed from the Fremlins to a new management group, which will be headed up by Mr. John Lovelace. John is a lifelong Canadian outdoorsman and is well-known nationally from his TV work. He is an accomplished businessman and a pilot, and was the host of the popular national television show Wings over Canada. Following in the long tradition of Flying U Ranch owners and managers going back to the 1920s, John is a colourful character with legendary story telling abilities, happy to share tales of the Canadian wilderness.
Anna Gou - CFO






Anna Gou is the new Chief Financial Officer for the ranch. As an accomplished businesswoman, she will be a valuable asset of the Flying U Ranch. She also loves the Cariboo so we expect she will be at the ranch frequently with her family.

GETTING THEIR ANNUAL R&R THIS WINTER

The herd is doing well in the winter pasture. We have winter hay in stock and Robert is on site and looking after them
with loving care. The new Management Team is 100% dedicated to the health and welfare of our riding stock.

Commitment to the Things That Make the Ranch Great
 
The focus of the ranch going forward will remain the same. This is a one-of-a-kind, special place steeped in history and tradition. For our returning guests, you will be happy to know that much of what you have come to love about the ranch will be here to greet you: the same cabins, the same horses, the same great menus will be here, as will many of the same staff.

Spa Services at The Flying U Ranch
...With Some Subtle Improvements
 
Over the next few months we will be announcing some exciting changes to enhance your total Flying U Ranch experience. We will be converting one of the facilities into a health spa offering pedicures, manicures, massages and a hot tub. This will come in handy after a long ride ! We will also be offering some new lakefront equipment to enhance the total experience of the ranch.

We Have Made It Easier to See What's Happening at The Ranch
 
We believe that the Flying U Ranch experience is a 12-month friendship. So we have overhauled the website to give you access to more information and new features including an event calendar, secure online reservations, and a "Members Only" section. Plus we will be adding a weather cam so you will soon be able to see what is happening at the ranch 365 days a year. Today we will be launching our monthly newsletter which will go out to nearly two thousand Flying U friends.
