Your Weekly Portland Club Update: November 13, 2023

Dear Member,


Monthly Mentions

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Quad, your Club newsletter that covers all things happening at the Bay Club, plus a little extra. Loving it? Not loving it? Hit reply and let us know.

We have lots of new members and want to ensure everyone is in the know…So, where did the name “Quad” come from anyways?

We were looking for a newsletter name that represented our business and our community. We often say our business is made up of four quadrants—fitness, sports, family, and hospitality—so, The Quad fit the bill from that standpoint.

But our business and superpower are truly centered around being together. If you think back to your high school or university days, where did you often gather? The quad. It’s where people came together—to work, to hang out, to have fun.

We see ourselves as that gathering place, and we love being your spot to come together and simply be you. Welcome to The Quad.

Pumpkin Spice – Isn’t always nice; it’s usually full of sugar! I am always trying to partake in the season without the added sweetener. Today’s home coffee creation was a win. Heat up a bit of MALK Almond Milk Egg Nog (that was a mouthful) + Caramel Nespresso + plus a dash of pumpkin spice. Step aside Starbucks, this was delish without the blood sugar spike!

Turkey Camps – Kiddos off Thanksgiving week, but you aren’t? We would be happy to delight them at the Club! Check out our camp line-up here.

Serving Up Fun – Are you planning this year’s holiday event for your company, family, or friends? Well, Pickleball Socials are all the rage. Host a private event at the Club—we provide the coach and the equipment. Visit this page and get your party started!

Toys for All – Our Toys for Tots program is underway, and we can’t thank you enough for the incredible start. Please bring new, unopened, unwrapped toys to any of our Club locations. Need some gift ideas? Pick up a tag from the tree. Want to donate from the comfort of your own sleigh? Click the link here.

And feel free to tell your friends that our Clubs are an official drop off site, so anyone can contribute. Making little ones smile is our specialty! Thank you all for making this our biggest donation year yet.
