We want to keep you informed as to what is going on with us, here at NorthPoint Paddles. You all have been so gracious and understanding as we have gone through these difficult months and we thank you for all of your encouraging words and support.
Here we are in the middle of November and Brita’s mom, Beth, is still struggling with health issues. Her long-awaited heart valve replacement finally took place a few weeks ago and the surgery itself went well, but, unfortunately, she has had multiple complications afterward, including a mini-stroke last week that, thankfully, didn’t last long and did not leave any ill effects. She is such a trooper and such a strong lady. She taught us kids to survive and that is what she is doing now…surviving. Next, in the weeks to come, she is going to need a stent put in the main artery of her heart that is 80% blocked – which we were not expecting. Currently, she is regaining her strength and recovering from the latest ordeals. Your continued thoughts and prayers are appreciated.
In light of what is ahead for Beth in these next couple of months, we have made the decision to wait until after the 1st of the year to resume our paddle production. We have started a waiting list of those who have been waiting for a paddle during this time - listing everyone first-come, first-served, (in the order of the date on which they contacted us). We will not be taking any payment until we get back into production after the 1st of the year and we finalize the order. So, there is no pressure, no commitment when you are placed on the waiting list.
But, wait…there IS more! As a thank you to our customers for their patience and understanding, we will be giving everyone, who is on our waiting list, a discount off of their order.
If you would like to be added to our waiting list, just send us an email to email@example.com and let us know that you want to be put on the list - and when we start back up, we will contact you to take your order and payment.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding – it means so much.
