    NEW EVENTS ADDED

    Rather than emailing individually for each event that was added to the calendar, we are including them in this newsletter instead. Let us know if you prefer we do it another way. Please see the list of events at the bottom of the newsletter. 

    We are still trying to get feedback on the Spa Day in May so if you can comment in our Facebook Group or reply to this email, it is most appreciated! 

    TICKETS AVAILABLE

    We have 4 tickets available for our Teatro ZinZanni event on March 9th. Our deadline to have these sold is SATURDAY FEB 17th

    We already sold 12 tickets and we have 4 extra tickets that we need to return to the venue very soon. This is your chance to join us for a really fun event. The price is the same for guests and VIP members but guests will not get the added perks like the Photo Package that is currently included for VIP members. We are working on adding more perks so stay tuned for more details.

    If any guest wants to upgrade to a VIP member before the event starts, we will include any VIP perks for you. 

    RSVP TO TEATRO ZINZANNI

    NOT A VIP MEMBER YET?

    SIP+PAINT SUCCESS!

    We had a fantastic and fun time last Friday night! We all agreed it was a good event and everyone had so much fun. We even had one of our members spontaneously play the piano for us too. We had LOTS of Mexican food, plenty of wine and sparkling water and we all created something amazing on our canvas'. 

    We also have some exclusive VIP MEMBER ONLY travel specials to share with you as well so let us know if you want a copy of the special deals. 

    Check out just one of the photos from this festive evening...


    RSVP CHANGES

    We keep tweaking our RSVP options based on the member feedback and how many people show up to our events. We decided to include shared appetizers at our Social Hour and Dinners so you get even more value when you come. It costs a bit more to order appetizers for the group at the Dinners so you will see a slightly higher RSVP price reflected. It is still an incredible value! 

    We have also made it easier for non-members to RSVP as they can come just for $6. We take a small fee to make reservations and acquire special offers for our group from the venue. Appetizers are not included with this RSVP so all food and beverages are on your own. However, if you want to get the included appetizers, then you just pay a little more. Our VIP Members always get the best prices and value for whatever event they attend. 

    Don't forget to RSVP for our next Social Hour which is on Feb 8th in Bothell and we have a super secret location that we are excited to share with you!

    STS NEWS & UPDATES


    HAPPY NEW YEAR

    We had a great first Social Hour Meet & Greet last night and we had 9 people attend and 3 were guys! I have received questions if these events are just for women and the answer is NO. It just so happened that only women showed up for our first few events. Here is a photo from last night:


    There will be some more changes to our events based on some feedback we got at last night's event. Stay tuned for more information to come.

    BUY ONE GET ONE HALF OFF 

    We need to fill the last 6 spots at our Sip, Dine & Paint Night so we are offering a FLASH SALE! Buy one ticket and get the second ticket for 1/2 price! This sale is valid until Sunday Jan 14th so make sure to get your ticket today.

    DEC NEWS & UPDATES

    There have been a lot of things going on since our last update. We hope we covered it all but if not, let us know what we missed! 

    PAST EVENT UPDATES

    Our Woodinville Wine Tour Experience as it was originally planned was cancelled, mainly because we didn't meet the minimum necessary for the luxury transportation, wine guide, etc. We appreciate the feedback provided so far, and we are always open to more. We are constantly tweaking our process and working towards well-attended, and well-received events. The few of us that signed up decided to go wine tasting on our own and had a blast! We plan on trying again next year if there is interest. 

    Nov Social Hour

    We had a fun time for our impromptu November Happy Hour so thank you again to Kim Pelham for the suggestion. It was a great venue to check out and we will perhaps schedule a group dinner there at some point.  

    VIP MEMBER UPDATES

    We now have our 10 VIP Charter Members. Yay! When we started this we retailed the membership at $97 per month, and love that we were able to offer it at such a crazy low rate for members that will offer feedback, and be a part of our growth. However, we aren't going to full price just yet. The next 10 members that join will get in at a membership price of $24.99/month.

    It takes a lot of work to plan these fun events for you, and it is important that we cover our costs to continue this vision. We want to bring you more events and that also means that we need more members! There is a plan that is percolating to benefit you and help us increase our membership at the same time so stay tuned. In the interim, who do you know that is a good fit for the Secret Travel Society? Have them apply today!

     

    RSVP CHANGES

    The other change that we implemented just a few days ago is a change to how you RSVP to our Social Hour Events (formally known as Happy Hour Events). It is important to minimize no shows as much as possible, and we need your help. In most cases we make arrangements with the venue to make sure we have enough space, and when it makes sense, negotiate extra perks for our group. So, it is important that we follow through.

    To help us keep our commitment to ourselves to have fun and live life to it's fullest, our minor change is as follows:

    VIP Members and Guest/Meetup Members pay the $6 fee to RSVP.

    The usual cancellation policy applies and the fee is non-refundable to no-shows. If you are a VIP Member, we will apply $5 to your bill!

    If you have any questions, please let us know!

    NEW EVENTS

    We are excited to bring more exciting and fun events so here are just a few on our calendar and there are more to come! Many of the events we have added are VIP Member only events so you won't see them unless you are signed in and have purchased a VIP Membership. 

    If you want to get tickets for Mama Mia, please contact us directly to see if there are any seats near our group. The tickets sold out for the Feb 4th date that we were initially looking at so we had to quickly move on another date. It is now on Thursdaynight on Feb 22nd.

    Also, we are pre-selling tickets for Teatro ZinZanni on Friday March 9th so if you are interested in attending, please purchase your deposit and we will invoice the balance of the event cost 30 days prior to the event start. We need all deposits in by Wed Dec 13th.

    NON-HOSTED EVENTS

    There are a few events that we are experimenting with on our calendar and those are called Non-Hosted Events. That simply means there is no guarantee Andrea or Monica will attend and it may be something we haven't personally planned, but it looks and sounds so super awesome we can't help but share it with our VIP Members. They can be fantastic travel specials, a fun local Wine Walk, or the like. Let us know what events you want to see!

    STS NEWS & UPDATES


    MOVED WINE TOUR & NEW PERK

    We moved our Wine Tasting Experience to Nov 18th and we added a new perk as well! We have a sponsor for the event so the first 6 people who register will get brunch for FREE! It is a value of $30 per person. You won't want to miss out on this fun tour. 

    http://www.secrettravelsociety.com/event-2674002

    WE LISTEN 

    We listen to our members! Kim Pelham requested another Happy Hour event in November so we have added one to the calendar. We are experimenting with keeping the location secret until you RSVP so let us know what you think. We also have a bonus perk for this event as well as the first 5 people who register will get their first drink on us! 

    http://www.secrettravelsociety.com/event-2698228

    LAST CALL FOR CHARTER MEMBERS

    We met with our business coach last week and decided that $14.99/month is way too low for what we are offering and the time we are putting in to plan these fun events for you. We are making the current VIP Members VIP Charter Members and only these members will get this low, low price. We will keep it at the low monthly fee for at least the first 6 months but after that time we might decide to bump up the price. If you know anyone who wants to join us at the $14.99/month price ($22.49 for the family charter members) then make sure to invite them to join us. 

    http://www.secrettravelsociety.com/about-us

    After we get our first 10 VIP Charter members, we will increase the price to $24.99/month and $37.49/month for VIP Charter Family members. Please share the news!

    We are now accepting applications for our membership! You can subscribe to our Secret Travel Society (STS) and it is a monthly introductory membership fee of $14.99. It will not stay at this low price for very long!

    Your monthly membership fee will recur every month on the same day that you join. Our membership is in beta version so by having it at this low price, we are counting on your feedback and input. It will also give us time to build our event calendar. 

    Once you join as a paying member, you will have access to our fun event calendar and access to exclusive member only events. There will be exclusive member only discounts and/or VIP gifts at each event. We also have a free Meetup group and it will continue to exist to help promote our mostly free and low cost events. It also serves as a way for people to get an introduction into our Secret Travel Society™.

    To apply for membership, please see our JOIN US page.

    We are business owners and we kept seeing other business owners who weren't taking the time to travel and enjoy their life. We know how hard it is for successful business owners, entrepreneurs and professionals to plan for fun events in their life so we decided to help out and created the Secret Travel Society™. 

    We are looking for people who enjoy meeting others, love to travel, value the finer things in life and want to have FUN. Our society members want to experience life to its fullest and share those moments with others. 

    We host a variety of fun, local events so you can get to know other fabulous people like yourself. Our local events will range in price from free to $200 per person. We will also put together some fun weekend trips and eventually, we will also offer opportunities to join us on bigger trips as well. 

    Remember, this group focuses on luxuryPricing for our trips and events may be a little higher than others that you see elsewhere, but the VALUE of the trip or event will far exceed the price you paid for it. Couples and singles are welcome. It's all about being positive and enjoying the best in life!
