“RCI has learned that a third party has invited certain RCI subscribing members residing in the Bradenton, Florida area to an ‘RCI update’ meeting at a local Perkins restaurant sometime this week.
RCI has not arranged for these meetings or contracted with any party to provide an update at such meetings on RCI’s behalf.
