This may need to be adjusted if the student advanced after the completion of last years program. The skill level must be for the sport the student will be taking this year.

Dear Guests,

Please accept our apologies for any difficulties you may have encountered while accessing our website store on Monday, September 21st.   While we are still waiting for more information as to why this disruption occurred, we wanted to forward to you a direct apology from our service provider.
Please accept my sincere apologies for the eCommerce technology disruption you experienced on the 21st of September. I understand this created a major disruption and inconvenience to your guests and employees, and adversely impacted the positive reputation of Yawgoo Valley during the initial day of availability for your lesson program.

Our team was first alerted to an issue at approximately 10:30 a.m. EDT, which either prevented guests from accessing the online store and/or from completing an online reservation.  By 12:30 p.m. EDT, our development resources were able to restore full operation of the eCommerce solution.

Over this time frame, I do understand that many of your guests visited Yawgoo in person, which created a compound impact, as your team was not prepared to service an unplanned increase in walk-up sales, which thereby caused additional frustration and inconvenience for all parties.  Again, I regret the impact of this situation to your guests and to Yawgoo Valley.

Please understand that I take this matter seriously; I have elevated this to our most senior technical resources and we plan to perform additional updates to alleviate the potential for a future issue of this nature. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Casey Parliament
General Manager
Intouch Technology Group, Inc.
We will do our best to resolve your questions and concerns via email or by phone as quickly as possible.  We appreciate your patience and your patronage.
