Just wanted to give a little happy birthday to the group, and every volunteer, supporter, and member that has participated in TUG in the past 15 years to bring it where it is today!

This truly is the first, largest and most informative timeshare community website on the internet.

The fact that it started back in 1993 makes it also one of the first sites on the internet period...amazing that it has grown to what it is today!

As a special happy birthday month....We are happy to give out free trial memberships to "friends of TUG"

So if you have a friend who you have always wanted to get involved with TUG, but they were unwilling or unable to pay the $15 membership fee. Shoot me an email with their contact information and I will provide them with a free 3 month trial membership. Zero cost to them...nor will they have to provide any sort of payment information, we dont auto-charge people etc etc.

(email me at tug@tug2.net )


Id give away free ads again...but they are already free for you guys :rofl:

Im running out of freebies!

THANK YOU ALL - AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TUG! :cheer:

Thanks, Brian. I'll refer one of my coworkers on Monday. She'll be happy to know about this.

And Happy Birthday to TUG! Considering how much everyone here has helped little ol' me over the last couple of years, I can only imagine how many thousands of people have been helped since the beginning. Amazing accomplishment! :clap:

Brian and Bill,

This by far is the best resource of information out there. Bought my first TS in fall of 1993- resale of course.

Thanks to you and your Dad for founding and maintaining TUG. You should be very proud of your efforts and the many people you have helped.

Also a big thanks to all past and current moderators/admins and fellow members for your input over the last 15 yrs. This is the heart of TUG!
