DH and I had the pleasure of meeting TUG's very own Fern Modena this afternoon. We are here in LV for the week and had a delightful lunch with her at the South Point. Fern, it was wonderful meeting you after following your advice for so many years, even back as far as Fern's Cafe. You truly are The |Timeshare Guru!

That's really cool. We've met a half-dozen or so TUGgers, all friendly nice people. Can't wait to meet my buddy Rose Pink and some of my other frequent correspondents!

I had a wonderful time as well. It is fun putting faces on people you've known virtually, some times for years, isn't it. And it turned out we had a few friends in common, too.

Good luck with the machines the rest of the week!

Hey, The Chief Of Staff & I likewise got to have lunch with Fern at South Point when we were vacationing in Las Vegas recently.

It is so much fun meeting face to face with people we have come to know via TUG.

Lunch with Fern at South Point was a highlight of the week.

I've met both Fern & Dori and I agree it is so fun to meet people you "know" but haven't met.

Fern will go out of her way to meet you. ex I had a long layover in Vegas so instead of hitting the casinos she picked Kelli & me up at the airport and we all went out for In & Out Burgers!

I consider you both my friends!!:) shaggy

I, too, had the good fortune to meet Fern a few years ago at the Southpoint. It was her suggestion to meet there and is now one of my favorite casinos.

Hey, Lesley, you forgot the time I picked up you and Kelli, and it started snowing! I thought for sure you'd mention that time...Hi to Kelli from me.

South Point is one of my faves, too. To me, it is one of the best parts of staying at Grandview. In fact, somebody who went on a tour there told me that Grandview sales not only mention South Point, they take you on a tour of it!

As you can see, I love meeting TUGgers, too. So if anybody is planning to be in the area and has time email me and let me know and if I'm free, I'd love to get together.

Well I hope it doesn't snow when we get there on Nov 30! We haven't had any here yet this year and there is none in the forecast for at least the next 10 days which is good because we are leaving Sun for our 5 week trip to California and Arizona and then 2 nights in LV on our way back. Looking forward to seeing you then Fern. I guess it will be 2 years in Feb since we meet up with Shaggy, Kelli and Dori in Orlando. I agree it's always nice to meet up with other tuggers and Dori we are probably going to plan another trip to Florida in spring 2013.

Lynn, Cracker Barrel awaits! The breakfast with you and your hubby, and Shaggy and Kelli was lots of fun! What a wonderful group! Alan, we were sorry that we missed meeting you at the Grandview.

We had lunch with the legendary "Timeshare Guru" a few years ago; hope to do it again before too long!
