Apparently I'm still able to get some good trades with the points system in place, as we just got confirmed into Frenchman's Cove for mid December. Obviously not the high time there, but for my wife and I with no children the high time is the bad time for us to go. The knowledge gained from this board has gotten me some great vacations in the last years.

My last 3 years of 2-bedroom gold Shadow Ridge lock-offs has now gotten us in to;
2 bd Frenchman's Cove 12/12 (took parents)
2 bd Frenchman's cove 8/11 (only used 1 bedroom)
2 bd Marriott France 4/11 (took parents)
2 bd Marriott Marbella Spain 4/11 (took parents)
2 bd Newport Coast 5/2010 (took parents)
1 bd Ko Olina 1/2010

Along with getaways at;
1bd Grand Chateau for $349
2bd Timber Lodge ~$350

Thanks to everyone on the Marriott forum. Wouldn't have been able to do half of this without the knowledge from this board.
