What do my registration fees include?
For the Dallas family reunion, your registration includes the family dinner, transportation to the family dinner your t-shirt, and souvenirs.
Are refunds available?
Refunds will ONLY be issued should the family reunion be cancelled or if there is a situation (act of God) that prevents the attendee(s) from being able to attend.
What are the transportation options for activities associated with the family reunion?
Transportation will be offered at an additional cost for each event. The cost of transportation may vary depending on the distance of the venue to and from the hotel. During your registration you will be given the option to pay for transportation costs.
Why are the registration rates subject to an increase over time?
At the Vegas family reunion (2015) it was decided that rates for the Dallas reunion would not increase. In the past, many family members have stated that they were unable to attend due to the cost. For the simple fact that we want everyone to attend, we've researched venues and calculated the absolute lowest rates possible without this having to be a financial burden to anyone. Additional seed money raised at the Vegas reunion will be used to help offset some of the costs.
Why is there a June 30, 2017 deadline to register?
Final headcounts need to be provided in advance to the venues and any services we plan to use throughout the weekend. Registering late can is not only costly for you, but also for the organizer of the family reunion. This often leads to someone being generous enough to pick up the cost, cutting an activity, or dipping into seed money that has been set aside for something else. Most vendors will charge extra for making changes at the last minute. To ensure we are on-time and recieve the best of service we are providing them with the information they need sooner than later. If you are having trouble meeting this deadline, please contact the family reunion organizer (Jennifer Edge) as soon as possible.
Why is there a registration fees and activity fees?
For this reunion we are doing this a little different! Based on observation and feedback from the previous two reunions, there wasnt a strong agenda with available activities for everyone, plus not everyone wants to do the same things as everyone else. Registration fees will cover the fees associated for an individuals to attend and partake in the some of the basic activities. Activity fees will cover any extra activities in addition to (optional) the basic activities covered in the family reunion registration fees.
Although the family reunion is about bringing us all together to learn our family heritage and create connections, everyone has different circumstances and may have interest to do more kid friendly activities, shop till they drop, or just want enjoy the big city night life. In the past the family reunion consisted of a family meet and greet (Friday), family banquet (Saturday), and church services (Sunday). With the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex being so big and offering a variety of things for everyone of all ages to do, it was decided that making things a la carte provided people with an agenda and options that are flexiable and affordable.
Do I have to attend/participate in activities that have additional costs?
No. That's the great thing about having the registration fees and activity fees seperate. In the past, everyone had to partake in the same activities. With there being so much to do in the area no one is obligated to participate in the additional activities. It is absolutly fine you are just coming to see everyone, get away for a little awhile, rest and relax. Remember, this is about enjoying yourself!
Will I be responsible for paying for my meal at the family dinner?
No. The cost of your meal for the family dinner is deducted from the registration fees. You will only be responsbile for paying for alcoholic beverages should you order anything from the bar.
Can someone who is a non-family member attend?
Yes. Friends of family membered are welcome to attend and will need to pay registration.
I don't want a t-shirt. Is there a registration rate that excludes the cost of the t-shirt?
No. Your family reunion t-shirt is all inclusive with registration fees. We ask everyone in attendance (including friends of family members that attend) that they wear their t-shirt Saturday, July 29, 2017.
