Dear Members,
This August update will be somewhat short as I have been on vacation over the past two weeks, while operations were well attended to by Heads of Department. I take this opportunity to thank my staff for their dedication to the Club and Members on my behalf, especially Teresa Britten, our Front Office & Reservations Manager for holding the weekly Members Meeting in my absence.

Occupancy throughout August was in the 85% occupancy range.
Aruba’s weather continued mild with not much effect from Hurricane Isaac as it passed to our north. We’ll bekeeping watch on any developing weather and will keep you posted especially as storms form and enter our region during the next three months of September through November, the end of Hurricane Season. We want to thank you for your continued attention and concern for our Island, the ABC and your many friends.

CLUB DUES: Statements were mailed early July with due date October 31, 2012 for next Fiscal Year 2012/2013, covering weeks 44 through 52 of 2012 and weeks 1 through 43 of 2013 :
Superior - $461.00
Deluxe - $547.00
Royal - $638.00

WEEK 44 OWNERS – As concerns week #44 owners only, you may, or may not have noticed an incorrect “begin” date mentioned on your Statement for the week 44 that you own. Please take good note, the correct “begin” date for week 44 of 2012 is November 3, 2012, Saturday. Our apologies for any confusion or inconvenience.

REMINDER TO UPDATE YOUR PERSONAL DATA: The Club at all times needs to have an updated record of all our existing Members and we find that some of our members change their e-mail or postal address, contact or other related personal information and forget to inform the Resort. If this is your case, please contact Cathy Brete via email in order to update your records with the Club.

MAINTENANCE DEPARTMENT: Please take good note of The Board of Director’s New Policy regarding extensive room maintenance and repairs: “Any room that is still vacant on a Tuesday morning of each week, whether it is in the Rental Program or not, will be subject to and made available for any major room maintenance and repair work”. In case of a special project such as the balconies repairs etc., the unoccupied and unrented units will be made available as of Saturdays. The Board of Directors realizes that from time to time this Policy may cause some confusion and perhaps some extra work for the Front Desk and Club’s Rental office, should the Club need to relocate someone. However, it is the only reasonable solution in order for Maintenance to get the necessary repairs and maintenance done in our rooms. In case of emergency repairs members/guests may be requested by Management to room change at any time throughout your stay. Thank you for your kind cooperation and understanding.

The High-Rise Balconies tile replacement project is currently in progress -- six rooms have already been completed.

RESALES: Our Resales Coordinator Lucille Voss still has some Superior units available in the September weeks at Club’s Special Sales price of $3,500.00. These are Red time carrying high season trading rights throughout the world via the exchange companies RCI and Interval International. Check the listings on the Resales Page and contact Lucille via email, or via phone (297)582-3000 for further information and purchase.

RESERVATIONS: GUEST OF MEMBER AUTHORIZATION PROCEDURE – “Guest of Member Authorization” form is available on Club’s website, or upon request from the Club. Every Authorization form must be completed by Member/Owner, and received by the Club prior to the start date of the week. Member is also required to give his/her guest a copy of the Guest of Member Authorization form so that guest may present with copy to the Front Desk upon arrival/check-in at the Aruba Beach Club.

Your cooperation and adherence to the above required procedure will be appreciated.

SPACEBANK DEPOSITS WITH EXCHANGE COMPANIES: Please be reminded, Members are required to PRE-PAY the Club Dues/Maintenance Fees on the corresponding wk/unit/year prior to contacting the Exchange Company with a spacebank deposit. Your deposit will be returned if prepayment has not been received/recorded on your account by ABC. Check your Club Dues Statement “begins” date that indicates the wk/unit/yr billed.

Headlining the event is internationally-acclaimed, Grammy and Emmy-award winning pianist and composer Michel Camilo. Also featuring our local artists Delbert Bernabela, Robert Jeandor and his Solo Banda Show, Antonio Bello Blues, JEMM, and Randal Corsen.
