Early-bird pricing extended

We are extending the Early-bird registration period for Fifteen Candles to make sure classmates have ample opportunity to take advantage of early-bird pricing. Early-bird registration will now close on Tuesday, February 25, at 3:00 am EST. 

PLEASE NOTE we would greatly appreciate if you could register for your 15th Reunion by the end of this weekend (Sunday evening, February 16th), as we have costume quantity and sizing estimates due on Monday. The more classmates we have registered, the more accurate our planning.

To register today, please visit our Eventbrite page for Fifteen Candles.

The password was sent in three class emails. Please contact registration@princeton99.com if you did not get any of those emails.

If you have problems using your credit card, you also have the option of setting up a PayPal account to use a personal bank account as a funding source. As a last resort, you can also choose “other payment options” and pay by check (though credit card / PayPal payment is preferred).

If you would like to enter the housing lottery, please be sure to select the housing option before checking out.

Again, if you have any questions, please email registration@princeton99.com.

Reunions Registration Is Now Open

Registration for our Fifteenth Reunion is now open. This year we are using the online event service Eventbrite to process all registration orders. The registration page at princeton99.eventbrite.com is password-protected. You should have received the necessary password in a class email, sent early on February 4. If you cannot find that email, please contact registration@princeton.edu, and we will supply you with the password.

More information is on the main Reunions page, including information on housing, refunds, schedule, kids, travel, and an FAQ.

Class Updates: Reunions, Dues, AG

The August 2013 update letter from class president, Josh Pollack, is now making its way to your mailboxes (at least for those of you who have kept their current address updated in the Tigernet Alumni Directory).

According to the Countdown to Reunions page, we have just 263 days, 17 hours, 5 minutes, 2827… 26 seconds until our fifteenth Reunion. So that means a long list of updates on our Reunions pages:

Of special interest is the discounted hotel room block information and the list of recommended hotels. Please note that the University will not be providing us with campus housing allocations until spring 2014, and those rooms will be assigned using a lottery-based system.

Fifteen Candles reunions logo, class of 1999

Our fifteenth reunion theme is Fifteen Candles. Thank you to Dave Frost for submitting the winning theme idea. A big shout out to Josh Salcman for creating our sweet John Hughes-inspired logo.

The class of 1999 set a ten-year participation record for a 14th reunion Annual Giving campaign. Participation was 58.5%, up from last year’s 54%, and we donated a total of $183,179.

Don’t forget to pay your Class Dues. Annual Class Dues are still just $25, and they are distinct from Annual Giving and fund our class operating costs. Just click the Pay P’99 Class Dues Online link in the right sidebar of our class website. This link takes you off to PayPal to complete the transaction.

We will try to keep the class website updated with the latest information, but some updates may be posted first to our p1999 Facebook and Twitter accounts, so be sure to follow, like, pin, tweet, etc.

Reunions 2013: P-rade Lunch Orders

Hoagie Haven

Hoagie Haven at P-rade was such a success last year that Gary Pai has volunteered to hook us up again! We’re ordering Hoagie Haven sandwiches and bringing them to the ’99 P-rade meeting spot at 2 PM. As a special treat, please feel free to order any item — half or whole — from the cold hoagie, sandwich, or hot items menus from their online menu (PDF). Please place your order for you and your group using the Google Docs link from the most recent class email by Thursday, May 30th.

If we don’t hear from you by May 30, we’ll still have some extra cold hoagies available, but they will be on a first-come, first-served basis. So be sure to stop by our meeting area by the time the Old Guard walks by on Saturday, June 1st, to get your Hoagie Haven goodness, and look for Gary, Josh P. and Ken Lee!

Also, please note beverages will be BYO.

Reunions Mobile

In the “better late than never” announcement category, check out Reunions mobile at m.princeton.edu/reunions if you haven’t already. Bookmark it or add it to your home screen. (The latter gives you a spiffy icon on your home screen on iPhones.)

Reunions Mobile screenshot

It should look great on iPhones, iPads, BlackBerry 4.6 and newer, Blackberry 4.5 (with some degradation), Android, Opera Mobile, Safari, Firefox, IE7 or newer, and a few others. Mobile IE on Windows Mobile isn’t too bad, but you have to keep hitting the zoom button; Windows Mobile users should do themselves a favor and download Opera Mobile 10.
