YO Ranch tour reservation


Sunday, October 18, 2009 - October 20, 2009

 

Although this reunion is being sponsored by the class of '56, and assisted by the classes of '55, & '57, we want you to know all classes are included. Also, although many have already made their reservation, we want to encourage those of you that have not yet made your reservation at the YO and sent your reservation form and fee to Blanca Marroquin, to do so as soon as possible. Remember, the rooms at the YO are limited. And, even though we will use other motels in the area, the action is at the YO and that is where you will want to stay! We still have a few rooms available, so don’t delay!

Just a reminder about the YO Ranch Hotel rooms. One of the two night stays  reserved at the YO Ranch Hotel reserved by August 1st will be FREE to someone and will be determined by a drawing at the YO.

So, those of you that have misplaced, lost or maybe just thrown away our hard work,  here it is again.

 

O. K. Here Ya’ Go! This will be a blast!!!!
