Club Trinidad News Letter



YOUR SPECIAL ASSESSMENT

Club Trinidad Owners approved a Special Assessment at it’s May annual meeting, as all of you know, having received your billings.  The assessment was for $180 and was mailed out on June 1st, and as of now most of you have sent in your assessments.  These assessments were to, hopefully, be paid by the end of September, however, we still have about $60,000 still owed and we hope you will send it in as soon as possible.  As you know, it was to improve the Club by putting in all new mattresses (good ones) as well as new gas stoves and refrigerators as needed.  Well, all beds at the Club have beautiful new mattresses, 18 new Stoves and 7 new Refrigerators, and they are all paid for with the assessment money.  We feel this is a wonderful Christmas present for Club Trinidad.  So, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All Club Trinidad Owners and Members for this coming Holiday Season.

CTMM&E Management

Pursuant to the information above, we have been extremely busy getting quotes on all the above items and getting them before the Board of Directors for approval, purchasing and installing the items and disposing of the old ones.  Now when you come to your place here you are assured of a wonderful night’s sleep while here.  Also, as you were told last year that the Purple Room had been rented out to a local group, well it has been doing so well, that they and we here at Club Trinidad have been interviewed  a number of times, lately, due to our History as a place of past Stars from the Hollywood era of the 60’s and 70’s.  The new 2017 Palm Springs Life, which is in every room in every resort and hotel in the Valley, has placed 5 pages of some History and Pictures in it to tell the World about us.  Be sure to pick up yours when here and go to page 63 to be able to be proud of the Club.

            With the coming of the Purple Room, comes the Old Trinidad Signs from yesteryear, two beautiful signs hanging from the drive-through, one facing East and one facing West.  They are replicas’ of those that hung there in the early days.  They are beautiful and make Club Trinidad easier to see as our guests drive down Highway 111.

CT EXCHANGE-TYME

Many of you Weeks Owners do not come to Club Trinidad every year for your Vacations.  I would like for all of you to consider exchanging your week for a Vacation at another location if you do not want to come to Palm Springs.  Some of you exchange through RCI and that is great, however, you also have another alternative, CT Exchange-Tyme of which you, as an Owner, are already a member.  Edna can find anything you want, almost, and all you have to do is give her a call and it’s done.

PAY YOUR 2017 DUES NOW

RCI POINTS

BEWARE, SCAMS RUNNING WILD!!

            All Owners, especially the RCI Points Owners, should PLEASE be careful when you receive calls or notices that a Company will “rent your points from you” or “sell your timeshare for you, or has a buyer for your timeshare” for a generous sum of money!!  These are SCAMS and all they want is for you to pay them a sum of money, usually in the $700 go $900 range so that they can close the Escrow and give you the money.  Some of them are listed here, but there are lots more.  If you get these calls DO NOT GIVE THEM MONEY OR A CREDIT CARD, but call Club Trinidad instead before you do anything!! The following was provided to us by Points Owners, George & Linda Cheek, Watch-out for Clyde Trails, and Clement Park Financial of the Tampa, FL area, however, there are many more and they may contact you in any State.  Keep us notified.


All RCI Points Owners have varying renewal dates for their maintenance fees (Dues) which are based on the date they were placed in the RCI Points System.  This anniversary date is the due date for your yearly maintenance fees, and you will be mailed a billing statement one month prior to this date.  All dues are due when billed and will become delinquent one month after the anniversary date.  If this happens, your points deposit in RCI will be held up.  If you will make note of your anniversary date, then you can send your payment at any time you wish, just note your anniversary date on the check or notify us when paying by credit card.  If you send in your payment prior to receiving the billing statement, then it will show a 0 balance when received.  Questions regarding points may be directed to Cindy Harvey, ext. 227.

OTHER PRIVILEGES FOR POINTS OWNERS

When you purchased your points from the Marketing Companies in recent years, Club Trinidad was not involved in that sales procedure.  Club Trinidad had contracted with the Marketing Companies to offer our timeshares for sale to the public and to convert them to RCI Points at the time of sale.  This sale brought no money into the Club except you as a dues paying owner.  You purchased your timeshare from another party but we are happy to have you as a part of our Family.  As a Points Owner you have the same privileges as our Weeks Owners, which includes Bonus Time and Day use of our facility.  Bonus Time is the opportunity to make reservations at Club Trinidad for 1, 2 or 3 days at the Bonus Time rates, which are Deluxe Studio - $55 per night; 1 Bedroom - $65 per night and 2 Bedroom/2 Bath - $75.  Day use of our facility is when any of you are traveling in the Palm Springs area you are invited to stop by and use our pools, spa, Fitness Center, discounts at Massage Parlor and Visit the Purple Room Lounge.  Any of these privileges are of course based on availability and do not affect your RCI Points at all but are all in addition to the points.  Come and see us when you can, we are all Family here.  If you should ever drop out of the RCI Points program, your ownership here will continue as you will automatically become a “weeks” owner and can use and book your week here with us, or exchange it through CT Exchange-Tyme to any other place in the World for an exchange fee of only $150.  See Edna’s column on previous page.
