Can we create a poll in this forum to determine how many Four Season Residence Club owners we have? and how many fractional owners?

Thanks

Hi

Aviara ( two weeks ) for us. Looking for one more (don't tell wife)

You don't get the impression that we have many fractional owners here on TUG. Those guys paid the REALLY BIG BUCKS. Would be curious on resale values for Punta Mita or Costa Rica ( or any FS fractional )

One gold week (bought from FS in 1998).

Sorry, but do I need to vote somewhere besides this to show up in the bar graph above? This does not look like the other polls I have seen.

That was a fantastic price for the buyer! I was watching the auction, but I didn't bid.

I really hope you guys are correct, b/c if you are, it'll mean the economy is humming again.

Wonder what MF's are there ?? Won can only ....no ...can't even guess ...:) $3,000 x 4 = $12,000 is my guess. Let the grinders who pay $700 and gloat about uptrading try to get into here :)

I was surprised to see Punta Mita golf course was resort of the year course (can't remember what award)

The Costa Rica locations looks really nice, too -- may have to dream for a while ( need a REALLY REALLY big market rally )

BTW - Aviara (the Hotel) made it for 10th year to 5 diamond rating for AAA, one of about 110 places - not many places when you look at the list,

Thanks for looking this up. Interesting to know what the system is doing and what it is worth. We toured the Costa Rica Residence Club when we were there 3 years ago and they were really lovely. It is a eye-popping location and if you are a golfer the view were phenomenal. We also stayed at Jackson Hole a couple of years ago and toured the residence club and they were beautiful with ski and and out facilities. I will be interesting to see how this current economic mess effects the whole TS market. Happy to be where I am at the FS in that regard :D .
