Your Weekly Portland Club Update: November 20, 2023

Dear Member,


Monthly Mentions

Welcome to Thanksgiving week, a week that I hope brings you some joy! As we think about what we are grateful for, I would like to take a moment and thank each one of you for being a part of our community.

Open, Open, Open – For those of us who remember the Mervyn’s commercial from the 90s…we have your back on Turkey Day! We will be open on Thursday, so check the app or the website for holiday hours at your Club.

Turkey Camps – Kiddos off this week, but you aren’t? Get them off the screens and into the Clubs! Spaces are selling out, so don’t delay. And you can sign them up just for a day. Yes, that rhymed. Click here to see the line-up at your Club.

MSA – Here is your Member Service Announcement. While this time can be joyous, it can also be stressful. Take the time to do what YOU need. As a highly sensitive person, I can get overwhelmed by social gatherings, but there’s nothing that a quick walk around the block can’t solve. So, do what YOU need and enjoy the moment.

Escapism on your mind – We don’t blame you. So, let’s all think about the amazing trips we are going to take in the new year. We are partnering up with AdventureTripr to put together custom Bay Club experiences…so we can travel as a community! Imagine doing Yoga and meditations in the Himalayas or an Everest Base Camp Trek. It’s all possible! But first, tell us about the trips you would like to take. Just click here!
