Occasionally there are first-hand reports to TUG of happenings at resorts that might affect the exchange/rental factors of certain time periods, as well as the enjoyment level of guests who wish to either participate in or avoid such happenings.

This Sticky post is a basic compilation of resorts/dates/events; related discussions in the forums can be found through the TUG Search function.

Any experience booking these dates listed above to rent at Marriott's Desert Spring Villas?

Less worried about booking and more concerned about returns on rent far exceeding the MFs.

Any historical data on this for those weeks?

No problem if your online exactly 12 months out at exactly 6am PST with a deeded week. Dont know about points.

Slinger, that’s exactly what I did to reserve my Gold season week for the RBC Heritage golf at Grande Ocean in HH for next April 2020. Just putting the week up for rent now. Will report back when rented as to the success and value over MF.
