We were just hanging out that day so we thought what the heck so we went. We had the first group speech and then we met one on one with a salesman. He asked us what brought us in that day and we told him about sitting at the pool bar and being approached by the guy. He asked if we had been drinking and we told him we had. He then said he couldn't continue since we had had alcohol. So, long story short. If you want to go, but you don't want the hard sales pitch just tell them you're drunk.
hahaha! I think I just might do that. Did you still get your vouchers?

sometimes for young people who can't really afford a vacation any other way, it is worth the pressure for the freebies but overall we all know they will do whatever they need to sell you a time share. To be honest Time Shares do have a place and offer a lot, but you can buy them for almost nothing over the net...why listen to a saleman pressure you for a couple of hours or longer and convince you it is the best $13,000 you will ever spend when you can go to Ebay and get the same thing for 10% of the cost>??

We got a voucher for dinner, but didn't get the other stuff, most of what that was I can't remember. My memory must be shorted out from those fruity umbrella concoctions I had at the pool bar.

We bought one from a large national real estate company. They offer these deals to the agents, the agents can in turn give to clients who they know they can make the sale too. But we have friends who bought this package and went to Piegon Forge and had a great time. The place they stayed asked if they wanted to the attend the presentation and my friend said no thanks and that was it. we ended up buying one. $199 for 7 days, places all over the world, what the heck! we are planning Florida in Jan or Feb. We live in Ohio so that'll be a nice trip.
