Committee Welcome

The Tyee Class of 1972 50th Planning Committee; warmly welcomes you, to the once in a lifetime event, of our 50th High School Reunion. ; ;We have all journeyed those fifty years in unique and different ways, but we all have the common thread of spending our high school years in SeaTac, WA, in those crazy circular buildings we called Tyee High.

;As time marches on, we’ve learned that we tend to remember moments, rather than days. This is well sung by Bob Seger, The Eagles, and Bruce Springsteen. We are all approaching our twilight years, and this is an opportunity not to be missed, for it will not pass our way again.

We encourage you not to worry about the details; dress up or dress down. Be comfortable being you! ;What we are trying to say is, 90 percent of Life is about showing up, and if you don’t, you will never know what you missed! ;This night is about you and for you!! Every classmate is valuable and vital into making this event memorable and successful! We want you to know that we would appreciate your presence and that you will be missed if you do not show up! ; ; ;

Don’t wait till the 11th hr. to seize this opportunity, visit www.varsityreunions.com, update your information, reach out to missing classmates, and most importantly, let us know that you are coming!!! ; This will be the reunion of reunions and it will not be the same without you! We all have memories of the past, but this 50th reunion will be an opportunity to make memories of the present. ; So, mark your calendar, spread the news among your classmates, and boogie on down to Embassy Suites on Sept. 9th. ; We were part of each other’s history, but please don’t let our 50th reunion be but a mystery!

Potluck Picnic Sunday, September 11 @11:00am @ N. SeaTac Park 12900 Des Moines Memorial Dr S, SeaTac Thank you!! ; ; ;Your 1972 Tyee Totems Class 50th Reunion Committee ;

If you have a question that doesn't appear here, please feel free to contact us. Our intent is to help make your reunion experience very enjoyable.

The price is based on class size, reunion location, menu selection, etc. Keep in mind that the price you pay for your reunion ticket covers more than just your dinner. There are many other costs involved in planning a reunion such as printing, postage, decorations, name badges, entertainment, finding classmates, publicity, website, database management, reservation processing and staffing. You are buying a ticket to an event that only happens once every ten years!

Yes. We accept Visa and MasterCard for your convenience. You can use your credit card with all mail, phone, fax, or internet orders.

The normal deadline for reserving for a reunion is approximately one month prior which is stated in your reunion invitation. However, we realize that sometimes circumstances may prevent you from sending your payment by the deadline. Not a problem -- we accept phone, fax, and internet orders up to midnight the Tuesday before your reunion (additional fees apply).

Reservation confirmation will be emailed to you prior to the reunion. You must provide your email address in order to receive this notice.

First, make sure you have submitted your email address to us. Varsity Reunions and your committee rely on email to communicate with classmates. If you have submitted your email and are not receiving announcements, it could be that your ISP is blocking emails coming from Varsity Reunions. To ensure you receive the announcements, add the domain name, varsityreunions.com, to your safe sender list.

We highly recommend making a reservation prior to the night of the reunion. We can accept a limited number of people who choose to pay at the door. We accept cash and credit cards only at the door. Personal checks will not be accepted the night of the reunion.

The best way to find out who will be attending your reunion is to get the information from a committee member. Varsity Reunions regularly updates the committee on reunion attendees.

Most reunion invitations suggest semi-formal or dressy casual. The most important thing to remember is to wear something that you feel comfortable in. A good rule of thumb to follow is to dress like you would if you were attending an evening wedding.

A refund will be provided, less a cancellation fee, upon written request which must be submitted to Varsity Reunions at least 7 days prior to your reunion. See our Terms of Use for more details.

Classmate Connection

Classmate Connection is a service we provide to help you reconnect and stay in contact with your classmates. This service is free with any purchase of a Reunion Package. If you would like to access to this service please click the "Reserve Now" box and purchase a Reunion Package or Classmate Connection item.

Ticket Assistance

Some funds have been set aside to contribute toward the ticket price for classmates facing a financial hardship. If you are interested in more information, please contact us.

Any assistance provided to you is anonymous.

Sponsor a Classmate

Due to various circumstances, some classmates are not able to pay the full ticket price for the reunion. If you would like to help cover the cost for a classmate to be a part of the reunion celebration, your generosity is appreciated.

Your committee may also be inviting teachers to share in this special gathering. If you would like to sponsor a faculty member the committee welcomes you to participate in this way.

All contributions are anonymous to the recipient.

To make a contribution please do so on the reservation form. Donations are made in $10 increments. (Donations are not tax deductible.)

Funds will be used to assist your classmates or faculty attend your reunion. If any funds remain, they will be forwarded on to the committee to reimburse unmet expenses.

FlexPay Payment Plan

Spread your reunion payment out over a few months and make it easy on your budget. We offer a two-payment option for your convenience. Select FlexPay when making your reservation, pay 50% now and we’ll automatically bill your credit/debit card for the balance one month prior to your reunion.

FlexPay is available up to 6 weeks prior to your reunion.
