What happens?

I am pretty new to FL and live in the Orlando area. What happens at the TUG dinner on January 21? Is this an opportunity to meet other time share owners? Will there be any presentations about how to maximize one's time share ownership?
Thanks for your response

No Presentations, No Agenda, Just Fun Socializing & Meeting Friends.

Meeting other timeshare owners is what it's all about.

No presentations -- the event is not that organized. People just show up & chow down & gab. Nobody takes the floor. Nobody stands up & holds forth in front of everybody else.

Timeshares are the common denominator, so there are plenty of chances to air gripes & talk about the good old days & share tips & brag & I don't know what-all. But it's not all timeshare talk. People talk about anything they want. It's lots of fun.

Hope you can make it. Would love to see you there.

Hi,
We happen to be straying at Reunion for the month of January. Would like to meet all you folks ( and chow down at GC too ). Just do not go there at night or weekends, as it get REALLY crowded at that GC. Will be there 1 -2 pm on Jan. 21. Look for the tallest guy with white hair. Thanks.

BIGED:hi:

We may be able to make it. I will be staying at HICV HIVC checking in the day before. For me, it all depends on what times my DH has dialysis and how far it is to take him. I will stay posted once I know the details of his treatment.

About how far from orange lake?

Although we have no presentations, there will be plenty of opportunity to find out how to schedule and maximize your timeshare stays. Always fun and I always learn something new.

Anyone else?

Hi there,
Anyone else in the Disney area the month of January? We are Disney "freaks", not only going to Disney, but to Universal, Orlando ICEBAR, wineries, and anything else that catches our eyes. Used to be DVC members, however I wanted some of my money to stay in my pocket. Say hi if you like.:wave:

reference book

I seem to need a reference to some of the abbreviations : BMV for instance. I know OKW as Old Key West at Disney. Going down there to Reunion next week. Anybody else in the area? We are there the entire month. Reunion is a over 1000 acre country club resort about 7 miles west of Disney. We are there quite often, renting the top floor 3 BR/2BA overlooking the golf course. FYI.

Linda said she was at Broadwalk Villas at DVC at Epcot.

We've been to Wyndham Reunion several times, they are so nice. Nice for you to be there a month. We are 6 weeks at St Augustine and therefore we have the get together for people to more easily meet who are in FL. We therefore take a "vacation" at Bonnet Creek for a couple of days to be able to meet everyone.

Will look forward to seeing everyone there.
