MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

Joe McAdams - CEO, Thousand TrailsShare the LifeStyle, Enjoy the Rewards!

OPM’s the word . . . Tell all your friends!

Summer is here and our preserves are polished and poised to welcome members back after a long winter. I hope your summer plans are in full swing and a stay at your favorite preserve is on the horizon.

Since summer is the season to vacation with family and friends we thought it would be the perfect time to roll out a new member referral program. The member referral program is nothing new to our members, our referral program has been around almost as long as Thousand Trails, BUT what’s different is our great new One Park Membership (OPM) option. As I mentioned last month, we are launching a new One Park Membership product that we feel could attract more of your family and friends to become members of our preserves. What does that mean for you? It means more cash in your pocket and great prize incentives to choose from! The more referrals you send our way, the greater your potential to earn more cash and prizes!

Our new One Park Member referral program is a tiered program that will pay eligible members up to $150 for each One Park Membership referral that ultimately purchases. And if the cash doesn’t get your attention, perhaps the great prize incentives will. Our Silver, Gold and Platinum prize levels are just another added Share the LifeStyle, Enjoy the Rewards! OPM’s the word . . . Tell all your friends! bonus for sharing the lifestyle you have come to enjoy at your favorite preserve with your family and friends. You can choose from shirts, jackets, hats, grills, coolers, bikes, GPS units and much more!

Referring your friends and family is so easy! Simply go online at www.1000trails.com/memberreferral; or call (888) 808-8925 or complete the referral card contained in this issue. Don’t delay—this new referral program ends December 31, 2009. For more details on this new referral program see our ad on pages 12 and 13 of this issue.

I encourage you to enjoy all the benefits that come with being a member. Our unique product offerings and resort locations across the country combine to make us one of the best choices for vacation travel this summer!

Until next time,


Joe McAdams
