Your Club has entered its 19th year. The mission remains the same that restaurants and businesses offer members discounts hoping they become steady customers. Many participating businesses rely on the Club's advertising rather than purchasing expensive ads. Owners voice their appreciation of members support especially during downturns like the recent gas crisis.

Talented and long time
VIP Club members Ken and Wendy Bichel are involved in a very ambitious program here in San Miguel. Read all about it!

The Bichels are producing the "world premier" of Bikers in Camelot, a musical Wendy has written which Ken is the Musical Director, opening February 20th. Those familiar with the Bichels surely wil attest the production is going to be top drawer -- actors/singers from NYC, Oslo, a director from Toronto, a 6 piece orchestra including Doug Robinson, Rick Schlosser, Alan Campbell and two string players, Claudia Shiuh and Peter Rudolfi. For a production of this sort, it's essential to turn to fund raising. The Bichels have launched an Indiegogo campaign in need of community support. The show should be breathtaking, then at the same time, priced inexpensively, considering imported talent yet max ticket price is 400 pesos. Here's the link.

Whew! Sorry for the lengthly newsflash. There's much good stuff to cover Your Club has additional restaurants coming aboard in the new year!

Report lost or misplaced cards here for immediate replacement.

Congrats to our Mariana of Queso de la Luna on the birth of her handsome and healthy son, Tomas
Congrats to Angela Lewis and Donnie Masterton on the announcement of their engagement.

Please support locally owned businesses!

Thank you for your loyal and continuous support.
