The lunch was good, a little pricey but that’s expected.
They also have a little coffee stand with pastries and coffee inside the lobby area. Everything else that was listed that this pass provided, was exactly what was expected.
Soil samples in North Dakota indicate low levels of overwintering wheat midge larvae (cocoons) for the 2017 season, according to Janet Knodel, North Dakota State University Extension Service entomologist.
A total of 201 soil samples were collected from 21 counties in the fall of 2016 to estimate the regional risk for wheat midge in 2017.
The distribution of wheat midge is based on unparasitized cocoons found in the soil samples.
“Only 2 percent of the soil samples had economic population densities of wheat midge (greater than 500 midge larvae per square meter) this past year,” Knodel says.
“These higher populations were located in east-central Divide and southeastern Burke counties in northwestern North Dakota.
Fortunately, the majority of the soil samples, 68 percent, had zero wheat midge cocoons.” Knodel adds, “This is good news for North Dakota wheat producers as it will reduce the likelihood that insecticide will be needed for wheat midge control in wheat in 2017.” Wheat midge populations ranged from zero to 2,071 midge larvae per square meter, with an average of 42 larvae per square meter, in 2016.
So we bought a day pass in order to use the hotel grounds for the day.
They offered us full use of the beach, three pools and 4 whirl pools, and the fitness center.
The ONLY thing this hotel was missing, was a shower.
