Hello Matt and Sherri and welcome. You will be amazed when you get to enjoy Sweptaway. Feel free to ask questions. Post a photo if you can figure that whole thing out. I will add you to the TEAM CSA list and post again soon.
More thanks to those who have e-mailed me with their donation to the ISSA Foundation. Hope to have something on the TEAM CSA 2013 logo soon. Any artists or ideas out there??? Feel free to post them or shoot them to us via e-mail. We are looking for something with no more than 4 colors that Dorothy can embroider onto shirts. You can see past examples of our logos by looking back on this thread.
More to come,
Remember the ISSA Foundation.
My friend Joe. He sleeps a lot.
10 inches of snow today, but it could have been worse.... much worse! Yesterday, it was nearly 50 degrees here in NE Wisconsin... and we got nearly 1.5" of rain.
Tomorrow night... back to -30F wind chills. I wanna get OFF this roller coaster... next stop... JA!
Hello everyone. Ed and Shirley here. We will be going to CSA from 4/12/13 through 4/21/13. This is our second visit. We are from West Shokan, NY.
Welcome Ed and Shirley. I will add you to the list. Great photo. Looking forward to meeting you.
Remember the children.
It's official we had to move our dates from April to May..:(
We are getting our third grandchild and she is to arrive April 12th. We thought about canceling the whole trip but,didn't think we could go a whole year without CSA. We sure are going to miss all of "TEAM CSA".
We WILL be there next April! SO Joe when you are at the swim up bar booking next years trip. Send me the dates. LOL!
And Tom I will be making my ISSA donation. I still can't believe I won't see your smiling face :) everyday.
Hoping we can have a get together this summer!!!!
Ok enough :(

Thanks to all who have donated to the ISSA Fund so far. We will be posting a photo of the 2013 logo on a shirt.
Well is sunny but 23 degrees here today so I thought that it was a perfect day to make my donation to the children of Jamaica:) Tom I sent you a copy of the receipt. For the rest of the team remember this is what sets us apart from the other teams our committment to the children of Jamaica we have just 43 more days till the first of us arrive home:cool: Let see if we can best last years donations for the kids.
Well, sad to say, this will be our last April at CSA. With the new rates, the price drop is no longer the first week in April, it's the last. Suzi and I will be moving over to the first week in May for 2014. For our 9 nights, there's a $1500 difference in the total cost - $5000 for April and $3500 for May. I can't justify the extra cost just to be at CSA for our anniversary.
And just like that, they changed the rates. We'll be at CSA on 4/20/2014 and hopefully, every 4/20 thereafter.

Have not been on message board much but now I'm back. I think this will be the longest winter for me in a long time, I really, really, really need some Jamaica time at CSA ! We are bumbed that Kim & Kevin won"t be there this time but last September was a great time with them, let's hope we all can get together this summer. Chris started a new consulting job in Virginia this week for the forseable furture so CSA will be a welcome site to spend some time together. By the way Michigan winters suck, just saying.
Any donation to the ISSA Foundation is great for the Kids.
Just 52 more days till we return Home to CSA !!!
Chris & Paul
Love those flowers.
All paid up won't be long now till Jamaica,good friends and Tom:D

Wow, you guys are pro's. We're in for 4/13 to 4/20. Our third trip to CSA. Dan and Dorothy from Long island. Can't wait. We signed up for a pub crawl on the 16th if anyones interested. See you on the beach!
Welcome Dan and Dorothy (great name Dorothy).
We will be finishing the TEAM CSA Logo and Dorothy (my Dorothy) will start embroidering them. We will send out or personally deliver a shirt or shirts as our "thank you" to all who donate to help the children of Jamaica through the ISSA Foundation. We will be sending e-mails out to those who have already donated for shirt sizes and mailing addresses.
For the men, we will be doing a standard polo shirt. Now for the women, we will be asking if you prefer a tank, scoop neck T-shirt, or polo. We will post a photo soon.
If you are not careful, you just might meet and become life time friends with another couple because of this silly site.
Remember the Kids.
Tom and Dorothy
Some pictures to get me motivated to work today!! Really needing our Jamaica time...been a grinding few months. Plus, I only let Kenny wear his "klassy" t-shirts when we are out of the country and he's getting antsy!
