Registration fee includes all meals and transportation to the "Main events." The "Friday trips" are so varied we have not included those costs in this bucket. Also included is a memento (probably an official NYSC Frisbee. [not a "flyer"])

*Donations will be used to help pay the costs for those NYSCAA'ers who are currently on (very) limited budgets, such as folks in school. All those who pay the student amount and wish to be considered for the scholarship fund are encouraged to identify such on the registration. Any excess funds we collect will go first to pay for any extra costs of the reunion and then will be placed in the NYSCAA coffers. A portion may be donated to the Endowment fund, if the Alumni agree. If a portion is donated, it will be tax deductible and we'll let you know your share of the deduction.

Lodging Option Desired:

SORRY, NO PETS IN ROOMS; however, professional guide animals are permitted, as always.

Lowest cost ($16-$20/night) after four folks register for a one-bedroom suite or six folks for a two-bedroom suite. We'll designate one of you "responsible" and let all know. That person calls in names as "share-with." Separate bills will be provided for each person.
