Any word on the Club O staff? Would it be feasible to set up something whereby donations could go directly to the staff members who have lost their jobs and quite possibly their homes. The staff is so wonderful I would like to see some targeted donations to them as a way of giving back. Anyone with ideas on how to do this?

Any thought given to selling shares to raise some money for the rebuild?

Still can't believe what were seeing Our hearts and prayers go out to all of the people on SXM! All we have is the sweet memories of the Club O we once new,loved and enjoyed. Unfortunately the friends we always met with year after year will be sadly lost if ClubO does not rebuild. Beach Chalet 70 was the very first placed we stayed many years ago...we are crying for all the people of SXM....please rebuild!!!!

As an architect in a flood and hurricane zone the main thinking in rebuilding needs to be to elevate. The storm surge should leave good clues as to how high on the remaining buildings. We use a lot of break-away construction that limits damage to the main structure. Since Orient village was built, the concrete methods used seemed to work well since those buildings, and those concrete structures at Club O seemed to weather this worst of storms with damage but potentially salvageable. This needs to be the thinking. Wood roofs can be replaced and so can fixtures and finishes. Out of the box? Not by international standards but maybe by island standards. Won't be cheap but it'll be worth it after the next hurricane.

Friends of mine were able to send some pictures. Club O is destroyed. Papagayo is gutted. The gatehouse is gone. Most of the cottages are gone. Perch Bar is gone. Watersports building is collapsed. It was completely devastated.

Here's some more. What a mess.
The first two are apparently of where Pedro's once was.














This might be the only concrete minisuite 158/159, originally wood like the others, it had burned at one time and was rebuilt out of concrete, and was painted to match it's wooden neighbors.


I think this is the back side of the Club O Villa unit.


Papagayo's


Papagayo's


Papagayo's


Pretty sure its the southern side of Papagayo's

Modi,
You have always had the best pics of all things Club O.........in this case we dont want to see it but doing so helps us grasp the truth

More standing than the first batch showed.....

well if this does not prove that they have to rebuild out of concrete block...nothing does.

But i am a bit more encouraged that there are at least some things to build upon?

Hi Cathy,

My concern is how unified the current owners are in rebuilding compared to 95', when the Brinks were resolute in reconstructing the club. There was a schism with the current owners the past several years and I fear disagreements on how to rebuild, whether to rebuild or sell off the land could drag through the courts for many years before decisions are made. I hope for the best for all concerned.
