    Your Club, in newsflashes, has communicated some about the windiness of these notices. Brevity has never been my strong suit. The structure of these posts usually begins with headlines with new restaurants and other businesses coming into the fold, then announcements germane to the club, followed up, usually in chronological order, with forthcoming events and announcements by our members.

     Your Club announces that for the first time since 2005 there will be a price increase as of January 1, 2015! New memberships will sell for $550 pesos and renewals will become $450 if renewed within 45 days of expiration.
