    We are bumping up against our hotel room block limit on peak nights for the reunion.  If you have a room reservation but know you will NOT be attending, it would be greatly appreciated if you could release your rooms NOW.  Shukran!

    This is a fairly large hotel with some availability outside of our room block.  However, they do expect to be sold out over Memorial Day weekend.  If you want to stay in the reunion hotel but have been unable to reserve a room in our block, we need you to follow the steps below.  We will do our best to move Brats off the wait list and into our room block.

    1. Contact Liz to be put on the wait list. As rooms become available in our room block, we will offer those rooms to Brats on the wait list who are registered to attend the reunion.  The wait list will be honored chronologically. 
    2. Register for the reunion
    3. Book a room at the hotel through Hilton to be assured you have oneWe recommend you sign up for Hilton Honors (it's free!) to get best rates.  
      • If you want us to be able to transfer your room to our room block, DO NOT book through any site other than Hilton (e.g. expedia, hotels.com)! If your reservation is not booked directly through Hilton, we will not be able to move you into our block and get you the reunion room rates.
      • If you want us to be able to transfer your room to our room block, DO NOT book a non-refundable room!  If you book a non-refundable room, we will not be able to move you into our block and get you the reunion room rates.
      • SEND your confirmation # to Liz.

    As rooms become available in our room block, we will have Hilton move your reservation into our room block at our group rate.

    *If you decide you cannot attend the reunion because we have been unable to offer you a room in our block, we will refund reunion registration fees for those stranded on the wait list provided:

    • Your reservation was made between 3/12 - 4/30.
    • You request to cancel  reunion registration by 5/1.
    • You provide proof of  Squaw Peak Hilton hotel room cancellation.

    So much about a Brat Reunion distinguishes it from any other reunion you may have attended. More than a class reunion, it is a community reunion which truly takes you back to your childhood for a memorable weekend. A unique component of our fundraising activity has always been the very popular raffle and auctions at the reunions. Strolling through the raffle/auction room enhances the reunion experience, as mementos of Saudi Arabia, Aramco, and our journeys throughout the region are on display, thanks to the generosity of your fellow brats, teachers and annuitants.


    In order to keep this memorable reunion experience going, we are in need of items to raffle and auction at our upcoming reunion. Do you have stuff taking up space in your attic or garage which no longer fit your decor? Maybe you just want to declutter? Please consider donating these items. You'll be off-loading clutter, making other Brats and attendees happy and helping to defray ABI expenses at the same time!

    Ready to offload your stuff for a good cause? Please contact raffleauction@aramco-brats.com for shipping instructions and supply a photo of items if possible. Shukran in advance!

    The Phoenix committee is planning the most unique and fun golf event ever at a Brat reunion.  For the first time, we are conducting the tournament at an 18-hole Par 3 course!  The advantages of having the tournament on a par 3 course is the tournament should take between 2 and 2.5 hours, and the short course makes this accommodating to players of all skill levels.  Now you can get your swings in, have a few cocktails, and still get back to the resort in time for more socializing and Aramco Brat fun poolside before the banquet.  

    The format this reunion will be 2-person teams - Best Ball.  Play your own ball and take the best score between you and your partner.  We are also planning multiple on-course games like "closest to the pin" and "longest putt."

    So...grab a partner and get signed up ASAP. The Mountain Shadows Golf Course is one of the most unique in Arizona as it backs up to Camelback Mountain and has gorgeous 360-degree views. You will not be disappointed by this location for the event!

    Pardon our dust while www.aramco-brats.com switches to a more mobile-friendly format.  All web pages will remain live and functional, but we will be systematically going through to tweak formatting and ensure functionality are optimized.  

    The new, mobile-friendly format will improve your browsing experience with fully responsive pages that scale automatically to fit any screen width.  We will also be releasing a new app that will allow you easy, on-the-go access of event registration and mobile payment. If you do a lot of browsing with your smart phone or tablet, we think you'll love the change!
