Questions and Answers


When and how do I register?


            Do it right now!  Complete the registration form as soon as possible because we need to have attendance estimates with plenty of lead time to enable us to finalize arrangements.  If you aren’t absolutely sure about your plans, please register anyway.  We guarantee a full refund up until September 7, 2012.



What is the cost?


            $57 per person.  This covers all reunion events for each person attending.  Should you wish to bring additional guests or family members to the Sunday afternoon picnic, the cost will be $15 for each guest attending the picnic only.



I’m coming from out of town—is there a special deal on hotel reservations?


            Definitely. Or, even if you are not coming from out of town, make it a weekend get-away!  Call Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town Reservations at 1-800-237-2133 and ask for the Highland High School Class of 1957 Reunion Group Rates.

Our Group Code is 1209HIGHLA.   If you prefer to register on-line, go to www.hotelabq.com.  Be sure to enter the Group Code. Our special rate is $109 a night (single or double), plus tax. There are a limited number of rooms blocked for our event, so early booking is advised.  If you decide to come a few days early or stay a few days longer, Hotel Albuquerque is offering the special rate from Wednesday, September 11 through Tuesday, September 18, provided you book by August 24.



Any ideas for spending free time?


            There are a multitude of other activities that you can choose to pursue throughout the weekend, on your own or getting together with a group of old friends. For this reason you might want to plan for an early arrival on Friday. As a starter, take a look at the hotel website itself, www.hotelabq.com, for information about a range of restaurants, nearby shopping, and excursions to the BioPark and other sites in the area.



If I have other questions, who can I contact?


            Your Steering Committee would love to hear from you!
