    The Woodlands Resort calls itself “an oasis beneath the pines” – how perfect is that? Our Brat Oasis! The resort is beautiful and has everything we Brats love, including fantastic pool areas with waterpark and lazy river, golf course, tennis courts, pickle ball, hiking/biking/kayaking options, and close proximity to local attractions like the Woodlands Waterway, Market Street, and the Cynthia Woods Pavillion. Who doesn’t love summer in the Texas Piney Woods?!  And situated just 30 miles from downtown Houston, you can step out of our forested oasis and enjoy the big city!

    Happy New Year, Brat community!  We have some exciting news to share regarding the 2023 Reunion! 

    via GIPHY

    First, we are pleased to announce that Randa Chichakli has agreed to be the 2023 Reunion Chair! We are confident that Randa's extensive experience and appreciation for the reunions will provide for an excellent reunion.  Learn more about Randa in her own words:  "My family lived in Saudi Arabia from 1973 to 1995, and I graduated from 9th grade with the Dhahran Class of 1987.  After that was Marymount London for boarding school, then University of Texas for an engineering degree. Since the Aramco days, I’ve been based in the US and have traveled widely for work and fun. 2022 is the start of a new chapter as I move to Belize to enjoy island life in the Caribbean! I’ve been going to the Brat Reunions since 1999 and I hope to never miss one.  I love everything about the reunions… connecting face-to-face with my childhood friends and meeting new friends that expand my Brat family. I’m so excited to be a part of pulling the next reunion together… it’s gonna be great!!"  Thank you for taking up the charge of leading the next reunion, Randa! 

    Second, the 2023 Reunion will be held the weekend of June 8-12 instead of the traditional Memorial Day weekend.  We understand change can be hard - especially of late - but, based on feedback from several members of the Brat community, we determined that holding the reunion a little later would allow for more of our brethren to attend.  We are excited to see how this change can improve attendance for more of our community.

    We are excited about the new year and cannot wait to start planning for the event we all look forward to!  Stay tuned for more details!

    Hafla 2022 is Way More Than a Cruise- It's All About the People!




    Hafla 2022 Cruise will be a five-night cruise leaving Miami on October 31 and returning to Miami on November 5, 2022.

    The only good thing to come out of Covid-19 is the cruise lines are negotiating excellent cruise packages.

    Click here for additional information on Hafla 2022.  Brats Welcome!

    Note:  This is not an ABI event nor the Aramco Brat Reunion (more details on that coming in early 2022)!
