  • Site Redesign: Please be patient as we reconstruct this entire site for ease of reading with smart phones, etc. Note that the new Cascading Style Sheet controls the font sizes on all pages; for example, if some text is in blue like the newsletter page just above, that is a link to another page, pdf document, or an email address. Many pages will have prior format until conversions are completed.  The GOAL is to convert all Club Pages by 1 February then set up a plan for the Legacy pages. [12/19/2016]

To address this need the VIP club will create an Arizona VIP directory. It would include the names and contact information of those of you that winter in Arizona and live there permanently. If you would like to be included the Arizona VIP directory, send an email entitled VIP Arizona to "", or text 651-470-8905 or call 651-470-8905.
