Sixth Annual Jamaica Jim - Hedonism
2003 Vernal Reunion!
years, I've been providing information to a countless number folks all
around the world -- via e-mails, on CompuServe, on the Internet and even
by phone -- about the Caribbean, Jamaica and especially about Negril
and Hedonism II. With my down home, homespun humor and folksy
country charm, Yours Truly has provided answers to questions from thousands
my acquired knowledge from more than a hundred trips to the Caribbean
and my visits to more than half of the Caribbean countries, plus my personal
library of more than 100 Caribbean travel books, I answer e-mail questions
candidly and I hope knowledgeably -- and also hopefully with just a touch
of Southern wit. I've also been instrumental in many hundreds of
folks finding out about the pleasures of Hedonism. Due to my efforts,
back in December, 1996, Hedonism and SuperClubs gave me it's coveted "Above
and Beyond Award" in recognition of my continuing contributions to enlighten
folks with my computer!
Attendees at the
Annual Jamaica Jim
at Cosmos Restaurant, May,
For years, Nina and I have
visited Hedonism II the last full week of May each year - this began when
we were both working at two separate banks. By going that particular
week each year, we could arrive on a Saturday, stay through the next week
and then stay through the second weekend till the following Monday, which
was Memorial Day, a bank holiday. We had the benefit of being at
the resort for nine nights - ten days, but only using one week - five days
- of our vacation. Thus, we could return again in the fall - we would
pay for five nights and use three free nights we were entitled to by staying
a total fourteen nights within a calendar year - and stay for a total of
eight nights - nine days.
Also, by going the same time
each year - which became to be known as the "Annual Jamaica
Jim Hedonism Vernal Reunions" - we had the pleasure of seeing folks
from past trips. I guess the first was back
in the late 1980s and I figure we have actually had about fourteen so far!
We have always enjoyed seeing old friends and making new ones in May of
each year since then and recharging our batteries until our next trip.
A few years back, Go Classy
Tours, the travel agent I personally use for all my travel arrangements,
indicated that they frequently had queries from clients as to when Yours
Truly was planning to go back to Hedonism II. They suggested that
there were enough folks who know me - or want to know me - that they could
arrange a group get together for folks who wanted to go to Hedonism with
me. They could get a "large group" rate - much below the rate that
any other travel agency could obtain for that week each year - and set
up for a super time for everybody! That was in 1998 and they
have continued to arrange for the group rate each year since.
with the Jamaica Jim Hedonism Vernal Reunions of 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001,
and 2002, the one in 2003 provided folks an opportunity to
join me for what was a great trip.
don't have plansyet to again have the Annual Jamaica Jim Hedonism
Vernal Reunion in 2004, but keep tuned here to see what develops.
