   Announcement #52
  April 14, 2011

In this announcement:

  1. There's Still Time!
  2. Need to Cancel or Add a Reunion Registration?
  3. Help Build Your Reunion Jukebox
  4. Discounted Raffle Tickets Online!
  5. Reunion Suq Vendors
1. There's Still Time!
There is still time to register for the reunion in Dallas. You can always pay at the door, but why wait?  It's so much easier to walk into registration to pick up your badge and goodies then join the party!  Register now, folks!

In order to allow time for checks to be mailed and received before the reunion, the mail-in registration option will be disabled on 5/15/2011.  Registration with online payment will still be available through Sunday, 5/22/2011.  

REMINDER: you must be either a Supporting or Sustaining member to register. (This is our newfangled way of saying you have to pay AdBak.) Not one? Go to your profile page and in the Membership Details section, click "Change Membership Level." Be sure to select the appropriate level (Domestic v. International).


2. Need to Cancel or Add a Reunion Registration?
If you have already registered for the reunion and need to cancel or add a guest, please contact Dawn who will take care of it for you.  (See cancellation/refund policy.)  

3. Help Build Your Reunion Jukebox
Jukeboxes are becoming antiques, so we're trying something new in the canteen at this reunion: a netbook with streaming music through grooveshark.com.  Instead of adding quarters and paging through CDs, folks will be able to search by song or artist and add their selection to the queue.  Presto!

Wouldn't it be great if we could build some playlists before the reunion?  We have already set up a grooveshark account, so you can do just that!  If you want to help build a great music collection you and your classmates will enjoy, go to grooveshark.com any time before the reunion and sign in as bratmusic2011 (password dallas2011) to add songs to the decade-based playlists we have set up: "Best of the 19XXs", etc.  Just look up a song in the search window, drag it into the appropriate decade playlist, and you're done!  If you really want to get fancy, you can even upload music from your own desktop collection!

Feel free to contact
Dawn if you have questions or suggestions.

4. Discounted Raffle Tickets Online!
Now that your reservations are made, it’s time to start gearing up for the event itself.  In case you’ve been wondering, YES, our ever-popular raffle and silent and live auctions will take place again this year.

As in the past, we will have a wide variety of items - from brass camels and candlesticks, stuffed animals, bedu jewelry, clothing, books, decorative brass plates, coffee pots, hookahs and incense burners to cookbooks, books and manuals. Items are still coming in via donations from fellow brats.  Among our goodies should be something which strikes your eye - something which you always regretted not having collected while you were there (perhaps your budget was nonexistent?).

Take advantage of our discounted prices by purchasing your raffle tickets online between now and May 22nd!  The online sales will close on that date, to give us time to tabulate the ticket purchases and have your tickets ready for you at registration. The more tickets you buy, the greater your chances of winning the raffle item(s) you have bid on.


Online prices:
  • 3 tickets for $5, 
  • 8 tickets for $10
  • 25 tickets for $25 
Onsite prices:
  • 2 tickets for $5
  • 5 tickets for $10
  • 20 tickets for $25
PURCHASE NOW and get more bang for your buck!

5. Reunion Suq Vendors
We've had a great response to Suq signup for this reunion.  Brats will be selling everything from books and clothes to jewelry and Arabian artifacts and lots in between, so bring some extra spending faloose!  That's the good news.  The bad news is the Suq is almost full, so space and tables are now on a first-come, first-served basis.  Wish we could squeeze in more because it would feel a lot like the old Al Qaisariyyah Suq in Hofuf, but we have to play by the rules. 



Shukran!,
