Reunion 2020 UPDATE 6/11/2020
It’s official! The Tucson “Mai Pen Rai at the Oasis” reunion has been moved and will be held over the weekend of July 23, 2021.
The new reunion room block is good from Tuesday, July 20, to Tuesday, July 27, 2021.
All existing reservations already confirmed for the 2020 reunion will be migrated over to the 2021 revised reunion dates, so there is nothing for anyone to do right now. Reservations will be migrated to mirror the daily stay pattern that you already have. Reservations will be migrated one-year in advance and a new confirmation letter will be sent to you via the email address the hotel has on file for you. After the migration, you will be able to adjust your reservation dates with the hotel.
So what does this mean?
All 2020 confirmed reservations in the ISB block will be moved to the 2021 ISB reunion block mirroring the days you chose for the 2020 reunion. For example: If your current reservation was Thursday, July 9 – Sunday, July 11 (check out on Sunday), then your new reservation will be Thursday, July 22 – Sunday, July 25, 2021.
Anyone who does not have a confirmed reservation for 2020 but would like to make a reservation for 2021, please wait until August 1, 2020, to make your reservation. The hotel needs time to create a new reservation module.
The registration process is a two-fold process. Beginning again on August 1, 2020, Hotel reservations online can be made by Clicking Here or directly with the hotel by calling 888-370-0980 or 1-800-HILTONS or last resort 520-544-5000 and ask for reservations for the ISB Reunion or code “ISB”. Mention Room Block: “ISB”.
Room Rates: $115—this is the same rate for single, double, triple or quad.
Reunion hotel discount/block good from July 20 – 27, 2021.
After August 1, 2020, if you have trouble making your room reservation please call the hotel directly and ask for Dawn Glass, she will take care of you.
Note: You will be charged for one room night when you make your reservation. This charge is totally refundable provided that you cancel 72 hours prior to your first night’s stay. If you cancel or change inside of the 72 hours, you will lose your deposit.
Reunion registration fees are in place, so you can register with us anytime at https://isbnetwork.com/ and follow the reunion links. Registrations are still being taken at the standard reunion rate but they will go up again May 1, 2021. ******* The current registration fee is $200/members, Spouse, Guest, $220/nonmembers and $180/members child under 11 and $190.00/non-members child under 11. (So…now is the time to join ISBN to take advantage of one of the perks of becoming a member).
For those of you who registered for the Thai dinner, it will now be held Thursday, July 22, 2021. We are currently sold out of the optional first Thai dinner, but we are working on a second Thai dinner. If you would like to be put on the wait list for the first dinner, or interested in the second dinner, please email us to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you requested a registration fee refund for the 2020 reunion, your refund will be issued by July 15, 2020.

Presidential Suite Raffle!
We are raffling “THE PRESIDENTIAL SUITE” at the El Conquistador. The drawing will take place on May 5, 2021, just before the reunion giving the winner ample time to cancel their room reservation and or to modify their travel arrangements.
Why cancel your room? Because the winner, winner, chickin’ dinner, will receive the suite for FREE for up to 6 days during the reunion block dates!!
The value of the room would be in excess of $4000.00. BUT don’t get too excited, because the raffled room holds no actual cash value!! 🙁
Purchase your raffle tickets here: Raffle
The raffle tickets are only sold in groups of 5 therefore the minimum purchase is $25.00 or 5 tickets.
There is no limit to how many tickets you can purchase, so feel free to purchase as many as you want. Remember, the more tickets that you purchase the better your odds of winning!!
The tickets will be assigned by number beginning with 1- (10000 or as many as are purchased) in the order (date and time) of your purchase via PayPal. Even though the tickets are sold in increments of five (5), each individual ticket will be assigned a number.
We will draw the winner on May 5, 2021, and contact the winner via the email address listed in their PayPal transaction. Be sure to list a valid email address that you check often.
The suite will be free of charge to the winner and available for the full 6 days of the reunion block dates. Some taxes could apply but as of this writing we are being told there will be no taxes.
The raffle tickets purchased do not qualify for a member discount.
You must attend the reunion, and be fully registered with us, and have a room reservation, or have your name tied to a room reservation on the pickup report generated by the hotel to qualify.
If there is a second person listed on your reservation it can be used by them if you do not attend.
You can’t assign or give the suite to another person/reservation, it must go to your room reservation.
If you are unable to use the suite, we will draw a second name and assign the suite to them.
The Presidential suite raffle holds no cash value so there is no monetary credit to anyone however, we are told that it would cost someone in excess of $600.00 per night to book the suite.
The monies generated by the raffle will be used to enhance our reunions by purchasing badly needed AV equipment.

Reunion 2020 Update
I hope you are doing well during these difficult times. After careful consideration for the health and well-being of all, we have decided to postpone the reunion to next summer, but NOT cancel it. We currently have a verbal commitment for the weekend of July 23, 2021 but we still need to hash out a few more details. Once I have everything in place you will receive an email from me with a full update. We hope that everyone understands the reason for postponing, and that you will attend the rescheduled reunion next year.
So, what does this mean to you? We are working with the hotel with hopes that they will be able to move all reservations to the new dates without any action on your part, but we will email you once we have the definitive answer. If you have already cancelled your room, we will let you know once the new block is in place. We hope you will make a new reservation and join us.
Your reunion fees will be carried over to the new reunion unless you advise us otherwise in writing. If you decide to cancel and want a refund please read our cancellation policy in the Reunion FAQ at: https://isbnetwork.com/reunions/upcoming-reunion/reunion-faq/
Hotel cancellations must be made with the hotel, but since we are over 6 weeks away from the original reunion dates, there is plenty of time to do so without risk of penalty.
The Thai dinner was already fully deposited so we are working to reschedule that as well. If you need to ask for a refund you must do so in writing. Please read the refund policy for the Thai dinner in the Reunion FAQ at: https://isbnetwork.com/reunions/upcoming-reunion/reunion-faq/
Presidential Suite Raffle:
Anyone that participated in the raffle ticket purchase for the Presidential suite will be carried over. The refund policy for cancellation follows the same guidelines as with reunion fees.
Room Night Drawing:
If you were the lucky winner of a free room night/s drawing your free room night will automatically be carried over to the new reunion date. If you are unable to attend, we will hold another drawing so that someone one else might be a lucky winner, too!!
Finally, as always, the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding the reunion is found at: https://isbnetwork.com/reunions/
If you need to ask a question, email me to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please don’t post questions to me on Facebook and expect me to see them and respond.
