CORE DATES: WHAT'S INCLUDED: As in the past, although the core dates are Thursday through Sunday (August 4-7), we expect many people will choose to arrive a day or two early. In fairness to all, however, the registration fee covers only events on the core dates. At a minimum, your registration fee will include the Thursday night "Teen Club;" the Friday night reception (with food) and "Teen Club;" the Saturday evening dinner/dance; and the Sunday morning breakfast. Except for the Sunday breakfast, reunion activities are open to adults only (age 21 and over). Details will come in the confirmation packet described below. (Friends of Bill W. will be meeting at the hotel.)
Registration fees support certain fixed reunion expenses, including DJs, printing and mailing of this and other reunion materials, some costs associated with site investigation, and other administrative costs, such as finding people and keeping in touch with them in between reunions so we can tell them about reunions when the time comes.
SPOUSES AND CHILDREN: Adults (including your children aged 21 and over) may register for the entire reunion; children under 21 are invited to the Sunday breakfast only. The confirmation packet described below will include an "add-on" form for registering children. The add-on form can also be used to add your spouse/significant other/friend, but you may want to include him or her in your initial registration in order to get the "early bird" rate.
CANCELLATION POLICY: We hope no one has to cancel, but if you do, the only penalty will be a $10 cancellation fee if your cancellation is received (at the same address as for registrations) by June 30, 2011. If your cancellation is received after June 30, you'll get a 50% refund, except that if you fail to cancel by July 25, 2011, or simply don't show up, there will be no refund. Details on how to cancel your registration will be in your confirmation packet.
CONFIRMATION PACKET: After you register, you will receive a confirmation packet detailing all you will need to know about "Meet Us at the Rio Grande." We plan to start sending confirmation packets sometime in Spring 2011.
HOTEL RATES AND RESERVATIONS: Our special rate at this 4-star resort is $135 per night for standard rooms beginning August 1 through August 10 in case you wish to arrive early or stay late (based on availability). The rate is for up to two people per room and is subject to local taxes (currently 11.5 %). There is an additional charge for triple and quad occupancy. Junior Suites are available at the rate of $229 plus tax. Please note that the hotel's typical resort fee of $16 per night/per room has been waived for our group! This rate is guaranteed only until July 17, 2011, or until our room block is filled, whichever comes first! Therefore, we suggest that you reserve your room as soon as possible--you can always cancel without penalty up to 72 hours before arrival.
