and TUG Members. Thank you all for contributing to
TUG's success. We expect that 2008 will be even more exciting for TUG
members and visitors to TUG. Thanks to all of you for your continued

Non-members (soon to be new members,
hopefully) Looking for timeshare info and help?
You have found the right place. We have an incredible array of
resources available on this web site to help you. Timesharing can be
wonderful if you take your time to learn what it is all about before
you make your commitment. We have found that timeshare owners are the
nicest people, make great friends and will bend over backwards to help.
The quote I hear the most from new members is "I wish I had known about
TUG before I bought my first timeshare"
TUG Logo Items are available for members to
order and show their support of our group. For
sizes and ordering information, click here.
Needs Your Resort Reviews - our
review Reps are trying to find better ways to encourage
members to submit more Resort Reviews. They have discussed several
solutions and will be upgrading the Review
Input Form to
make it easier to submit. The reviews are the real backbone of our
group and we get many rankings submitted without the corresponding
reviews. It all boils down to just taking a little time to share your
resort experiences with the rest of your fellow members. If you have
any trouble submitting reviews online, you can always just email your
text reviews directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will see the reviews are sent to the correct rep for posting.
Banner Ad Program
We have now grown to 5 websites just to handle the current access
volume which is running over 250,000 hits per day. TUG has a banner ads
program for timeshare and travel related businesses and resorts to
advertise their specials to our members. Thanks to Sing Li (
programming volunteer ) and Ron Donze for putting this package
