Dear Members,
February was a good month, occupancy in the 90% range and our members and guests enjoyed the Aruba’s 58th CARNIVAL happenings as well as some fund CHARITY activities provided by the FRIENDS OF THE HANDICAPPED which included the SUPER BOWL Party held at the ABC/CDM, and the Valentine’s Day Sweethearts Dinner Dance which took place in the Grand Ballroom of the Radisson Hotel with roses for the ladies and many door prizes.

Thanks to the efforts of the Aruba Tourism Authority, the SUPER BOWL 2012 runners-up are Aruba’s winners. As Super Bowl MVP, Eli Manning earned a trip to Disney World. As Super Bowl runners-up, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots received an offer to take a trip to Aruba. The Aruba Tourism Authority has offered all-expenses paid trips to the entire Patriots roster. We’re looking forward to having the New England Patriots recuperating and enjoying their vacations on our friendly Island.

RESORT RECOGNITION: Aruba Beach Club has earned the RCI Silver Crown Resort® designation for 2012! RCI presents this award to Aruba Beach Club in recognition of its outstanding resort facilities and services which include resort quality, service delivery, and overall vacation experience. Congratulations to the entire staff for their strong commitment to quality and service, sharing our ongoing commitment to customer satisfaction.

MAINTENANCE: Project #1 – Painting of the West Wing hallways has been completed lending to a brighter, lighter effect. Painting is now continuing throughout the longer East Wing hallways. Project #2 – Retiling of the balconies floors in the West Wing has been completed in all but six of the Superior units. Project #3 Retiling of second floor by the East Wing staircase.

RESERVATIONS REMINDER: #1 – Check the TimeShare Calendar on the website when making your air arrangements; #2 – Please adhere to the Members Notification & Confirmation Procedure for Private Rental/Guests of Room which is on website and in the Club’s Newsletter, also on website.
#3 – Reservations has availability in May/June for those of you who would like to take/extend your vacation time this year, email

ARRIVING GUESTS: You will notice some “new faces” Ethlyn, Renesh and Tito, joining our dedicated Front Desk Team, waiting to welcome you upon arrival and offer assistance throughout your vacation.

HOUSEKEKEPING ISSUES: (1) Room Inventory – Housekeeping has noticed kitchen items being moved from one room to another which complicates the work of the Housekeeping Department confusing the room inventory. Therefore, we kindly request you to please keep/return your items in your own room.
(2) Recycling – The Blue or Grey Recycle containers under the kitchen sink in your unit are for cans only. Used newspaper and magazine bins are located under the staircase at the pool end exits. Your cooperation with our “Green” efforts is appreciated. Aruba does not yet recycle glass or plastic.
(3) Furniture – Please do not sit with wet swim suits on the living room sofas/chairs to avoid staining.

BEACH & CHICKEES: “Share the Shade” – In as much as a survey of the beach at 6AM has been showing approx 20-30 chickees open daily. Members have suggested a slight modification to the existing rule which is being tested: Proposed New Rule – In the event of a member addressing security to remove towels before 6AM, if chickees are open, then towels will not be removed.

CONCESSIONS: Our concessionaires appreciate your patronage and a chance to provide a gift or suggestion, for yourself, a special someone, a gift to take home, or a thank you for the one who just made your day… So, please do stop in.

UPCOMING ARUBA EVENT: The 2012 Soul Beach Music Festival will fly into Aruba for the most electrifying music festival event of the year.

It is with deep regret that I pass on the sad news of the untimely passing of our former Board Chairman and Treasurer, Mr. Louis Mintzer on February 27th. Our sincerest condolences to the bereaved family with their loss.

It is my pleasure updating you with some of the latest developments at the ABC and on the Island. I look forward to meeting you at the regular Tuesday Manager’s Meeting where most recent info will be shared and questions from the floor addressed.
