@Colin Campbell You stated .club names would NOT be recaptured after October 1st. You said it was open drop. Now you have stated an "exception"
The only exception would be if they were registry owned names.
So basically it is not an open drop. Correct?

As I said/asked in my previous message, with screenshot, they have recaptured a super domain: zone dot club.
And I'm quite sure it was expired AFTER October 1st.
Interesting to know why they had recaptured it.
Even if there is only one exception is not an open drop.
@Colin Campbell In this very thread you stated on:
We just announced at TheDomainConference that .CLUB will have an open drop and will not hold back any names....even short character names that should drop. Based on feedback and support from our customers and given our success we no longer feel it necessary to recapture any of the names.
As of Oct. 1st .CLUB will offer an "Open Drop". Not one name will be reclaimed by the registry! Over the last 12 months we have reclaimed millions in inventory which we sell monthly (See our reports) at about 60-100K per month. It's time for the domain investors who support us to get first access now.
But now you are saying there is an exception: The only exception would be if they were registry owned names.
This was a big announcement when you made it. The community was excited to hear it.
If there are .club names that are registry owned, why do they look like they are dropping / deleting then? And then being reclaimed?
How long does it take for a .Club to go from "pending delete" status to available to register?
Says a lot about an extension when beer.club sits unregistered at under $10K. imho.
As usual, new gtld registrars have overestimated the expectations and risk appetite of end users, while simultaneously trying to cut out domainers from the picture. As the old saying goes "You can't have your cake and eat it".
If you look for LLL.Club , I am selling one in auction with no reserve in West.cn - https://www.west.xyz/en//trade/show.asp?pid=26756107
new .club for me:
Classical deletion on 36th day since RGP (Redemption Grace Period) was started.
Some registries include RGP (30 days) in their Pending Delete period...
In this case PD is shown in WHOIS during 35 days instead of traditional 5.
Separate names with a comma.
