INSTRUCTIONS FOR REGISTERING: READ CAREFULLY

1. Make sure you dues are paid up. Go to Join/Renew

2. Make your hotel reservations using instructions above.

3. Click on registration link below.

4. Fill in latest updated contact information as required. On the right hand side of the form click on "Ticket type" Annual Reunion. (This adds your registration fee.)

5. Fill in information to tell us if you are willing to volunteer, where you plan to stay, your date of arrival and preferred name tag names. (Telling us where you plan to stay helps us compare to hotel reservations to make sure everyone is covered for accommodations.)

6. Decide and select which events you wish to participate in and which banquet meals you and your guests want. Add total number for each. Form will tally the totals.

7. MOST IMPORTANT: Go back to top of form and click "Save". THEN, IF YOU HAVE GUESTS, click "Add Guest" and fill in the name and address of your guest(s). This adds the guests name to the registration and adds the registration charge. Do this individually for each guest. (This step is the most often forgotten or misunderstood and the one we have to go back and fix after the fact.)

8. Once completed you can pay the invoice online with your credit/debit card or print the invoice and sent it along with your check to:

John Klossner

4 Loch Lane

Walden, NY 12586


Register but delay payment: You can also register and pay later up until September 16, 2024 before the reunion. This really helps us with planning headcount for events, transportation and food selections for banquet meals.

Old fashioned paper registration: For all you old school registration types, here is an option for you. Download and print this paper registration form, fill it out and send along with your check to John Klossner at the address above.
