If RCI confirms a week in a 1 in 3 rule resort, even if you have stayed there within the three years, is it a done deal or can RCI or the resort cancel it at a later date??? Do the resorts soften the policy for non peak time?

I stayed in orange lakes cc last year (East village) with a 1 and 4 rule. It showed up on my search for a 2012 vacation, so I clicked on the east village and it stopped me from going any furthar stating there was a 1 and 4 year rule and I stayed there last year.

In theory, they could cancel your booking.
However, they rely on computers to screen for this, and
I think it unlikely a human will mannually check for it.

It may also depend on whether you exchange into the resort or stay on an RCI Extra Vacation or Last Call. We stayed (exchanged into) at a Williamsburg VA resort years (10-15?) ago and liked it so much we went back 3 years in a row afterwards on Last Calls. When we attended the 'info meeting' the salesman was amazed that it was our 4th year in a row there since they strictly enforced a 1 in 4 year rule! Practically called us liars until I showed him our past reservations in a binder I keep for timeshare vacations.
SIL & BIL also stayed at Orange Lake 2 years in a row on an Extra Vacation with a guest certificate that I booked for them, although that was 3 or 4 years ago. Maybe RCI keeps better records now.:rofl:
