Old Faithful National Park Reunion Page
YP Former Employees Newsletter 2009
Reunion 2010 has been set for: June 25-27, 2010 – Friday to Sunday - For Official Events
As usual, many people will plan to arrive early, or stay late. That’s a good way to plan other events with friends.
Xanterra begins taking reservations for the 2010 summer season as of May 1, 2009 (less than 3 months from now!!).
Call: 1.866.GEYSERLAND (439-7375) or go to to their website: www.travelyellowstone.com
Remember that they open rooms at all facilities on a rolling basis. I recommend calling, rather than using the internet – but you can easily check room rates on the internet, and decide what you want before you call. So, if you check and nothing is available, you simply need to keep checking back. The reservation clerks cannot tell you when additional rooms will be opened for reservations. The best thing to do is call on May 1, 2009, and make reservations. You can always cancel them later!
As a result of the Questionnaire regarding the frequency of our Reunions, the decision has been made to retain the 3-year cycle, rather than change to a 2-year cycle.
As usual, we plan to have an information table in the northeast corner of the lobby.
There was general approval of the proposed 2010 schedule, which we expect to be:
1) Nothing formal will be planned during the day. That will allow you to do things with small groups of friends, or join an easy, open-to-all, hike in the area. There will probably be hikes planned for Thursday through Sunday.
2) Friday and Sunday evenings will have a cocktail reception in the upper room at the Snow Lodge. There will be a cash bar and heavy hors d’oeuvres, intended to replace dinner. Both events will allow people to circulate freely among the others in attendance. A special program will probably be presented each evening.
3) Saturday evening will continue to be a pow-wow – we hope that we can again arrange for the “Employee Deer Tracks Site” on the Firehole River, south of the parking lot and the Lodge Cabins. This will remain a BYO dinner and beverages event, with “Yucca Flats” available. Of course there will be a campfire that you can use for cooking.
No final decision has been yet made regarding financing of the cocktail receptions. One proposal is to set a fee of $25 per person that all would pay, with any excess funds donated to the Yellowstone Association. The other option is to continue as we have done recently – soliciting sponsors in advance, and soliciting additional donations from those in attendance. A combination of the two is also possible.
