This procedure is so you can eat with different people to get to know them. It usually happens that you get to meet everyone then .
I do understand the reason, my post was a joke about the number of trips I would take to the buffet.

Not sure if we will be there this year, I did attend in 2020. We haven't booked any timeshare travel yet for 2022.

2019 was my first attendance at the M&G in Orlando and enjoyed meeting quite a few of the members. I’ll start to look for someplace that week. Funny, I seem to be finding more reasons to travel and use up those banked points. This is as good as any excuse. I’m really starting to enjoy this retirement gig.

Dang it! That Monday is a holiday, and our schools are also closed that Tuesday, and I was hoping.....but this is that Wednesday, and both my daughter and I have hard-to-get dental appointments that day. Some day....

Nah. Just show up & look around for the TUG crowd gathered in 1 of the big rooms with lots of tables.

It will be great to see you.

Mike and Debbie will be there!

Our January 2020 Florida timeshare weeks were very quiet. But, it had a different set of walls to look at and provided a warmer outdoor walks location.

See you 1/19/2022 at 3pm.

I’ve always wanted to attend, now that we live in Sarasota it would be easy. But alas, I am having my much needed hip replacement on 1/12, so 2022 is out but maybe 2023.
Sorry to hear that you need a hip replacement.. all the best to you and we’ll see you next year!

Thought I’d give this post a bit of a bump by saying I found a week @ VV Parkway so I can attend. I’m thinking an additional week in the Naples area would be nice but not much available. Might have to switch my search to the Atlantic coast.

Well, doesn’t look like we’ll make it. :( DH is just finishing up some medical treatments this week that cause him a lot of fatigue, so instead of driving we’re flying, and instead of renting a car we booked a limo service for transport between MCO and the resort. I’m sorry we’ll miss seeing everyone!

Sorry to hear about medical problems - it changes all of our plans, doesn't it?

We're eagerly looking forward to the informal & unofficial TUG reunion on Jan. 19. It will be great seeing TUG friends face to face.

We have a Resort Upgrade request in for Vacation Village At Parkway -- not guaranteed, but not out of the question. (If uprgrade does not come through, we'll be at WorldMark Orlando Kingstown Reef -- our 1st time staying there if that's where we end up.)

As it happens, our reservation for the following week is for Vacation Village At Parkway. We have a Unit Upgrade request in for that, which (if it comes through) will get us a 2BR unit instead what we reserved (1BR).

Is this a great country or what ?

Missing TUG get-together, not good.

Getting new hip when original is worn out, very good.

Best wishes for successful outcome & quick recovery.

Thank you. Had the surgery this morning and all is great. I’ve been up walking and using the bathroom. Modern medicine is amazing

Richard here. My wife Jalee and I are looking forward to attending. Have it on our calendar.
Since we are in Lakeland, it's not too far.
I use to joke about trying to stay at every resort in Orlando; that was until I found out just how many there are.

Must confess we do not know many of you here on Tug but are looking forward to correcting this.
