We got our maintenance bill yesterday and it was different from past bills. It says that Blue Whale is managed by "Capital Vacations Resort Management" rather than Larry Edelman's "Greet-Inns" . There was also an insert that is for 3 years for the price of 1 with Interval (Blue Whale is -- or at least was -- an RCI resort, not Interval). The bill says you can call the Resort at 833-714-0869. But that is Trading Places and not the Blue Whale if you call it. This is all rather odd.

Is "Greet-Inns" gone and replaced by Capital Vacations"? And, the link on the Blue Whale website to pay maintenance on-line is broken. So you can no longer pay online.

What in the wide wide world of sports is going on at the Blue Whale? My first thought is that Larry decided to retire and Greet-Inns has been dissolved...

Capital Acquired VRI . VRI owns Trading Places.

There is a Capital sub- forum within the TUG forum - All Other TS systems
that you may wish to read.

Short Version Takeaway - Keep your deeded week as a deeded week- as a trade in for Capital Points will result in a higher MF.
