COVID-19 has sidelined us, to say the least. The virus made us hunker down and forced us to find creative ways to virtually stay social. Various virtual OCWS wine seminars have taken place and will continue throughout the year for members to sign up and enjoy from the comfort of their own homes. This being the case, we thought we would reach out to our members with a promotional opportunity to invite your friends to get in on our exciting virtual opportunities by becoming members of the OCWS.
Do you have a friend or two or even three who has expressed an interest in wine? Even without the 2020 OC Fair taking place this year, we are running a membership promotion.
If your friend joins as a new member (former members are excluded), they will receive a $15 credit per member ($15 for a single membership, $30 for a dual membership) that they can use to attend any event prior to July 1, 2021. Shoot, that makes joining almost cost free! The credit cannot be used to purchase merchandise or for membership renewal fees.
So talk it up among your wine loving friends—knowing you, they know how much fun it is being a member of the OCWS. You all know how much fun this club is. New members can sign up through our website at ocws.org.

The OCWS Board of Directors hopes this message finds you in good health, in good spirits and secure during this unprecedented time in our lives. We appreciate your support as we navigate the ongoing challenges presented by the COVID-19 outbreak and its effect on our operations.
All OCWS events in the recent months and in the months ahead have been cancelled due to the California Governor’s “stay-at-home” order. We will resume our events when they can be held in a safe environment for our members and in accordance with local, state and federal directives and guidelines. Our top priority remains the well-being and safety of all our members.
Since all OCWS events have been suspended, the Board has approved extending every member’s expiration date by four months. If you have already paid your dues, we are sorry but there will be no refunds; however, your expiration date will still be advanced by four months.
If you have any questions, please direct them to the OCWS Membership Chair, Brian McDonald, at Brian@ocws.org or by phone at 714.227.7284.
Stay safe everyone!

Join the Orange County Wine Society between July 12 and August 31 and receive a $15 coupon that can be used for any OCWS event (except membership renewal and merchandise). The coupons are valid until July 15, 2019. That means a $40 single membership really costs only $25 and a $60 dual membership only costs $30. Such a deal! Tell a friend, tell two friends.

Between July 14 and August 31, OCWS will again be running a membership promotion. Each person joining during that period will receive a $15 coupon which can be used for any OCWS event except the purchase of merchandise and membership dues (that’s one $15 coupon for a single membership and two $15 coupons for a dual membership). The coupon will be automatically added to the new member’s on line account but will expire July 15, 2018. This promotion is available to anyone who has not previously been a member of OCWS.
If you have friends who have expressed in interest in the Wine Society or you think may have an interest in the Wine Society, this is a great time for them to join. Please share this opportunity with them.
