*** OPTIONAL REUNION ACTIVITIES***

Saturday Showboat Lunch Cruise

Our optional Saturday activity is the the General Jackson showboat cruise. The General Jackson has a midday show and buffet lunch.  The General Jackson cruise boards at 11 am and docks by 2:45 pm. There is a lunch buffet and a show while it is cruising down the Tennessee River. In order to ensure everyone arrives on time, we plan to charter buses to transport those who want to go on the cruise to and from the General Jackson’s dock. The total per person cost will be $70 per person (all taxes and fees inclusive) and includes bus transportation to/from hotel plus the cruise, buffet lunch and the show. The charge for children 4-11 is $45.00 and also includes round trip bus transport. The riverboat has no charge for children under 4, but there will be a $12.50 fee if they are big enough to require an individual seat on the bus. Every individual (including babies) must have a ticket on the boat so they have an accurate headcount, so be sure to register your kids in the appropriate age category even if they are small enough to be counted as a bus lap child and ride the bus and boat free. The showboat will issue tickets marked no charge for children under 4, but we must reserve those in advance as part of our group purchase. The showboat cruise is scheduled on Sat., July 20, 2019 and buses will leave from the back of the hotel at 10:30 am. We need to give a firm number as early as possible because this cruise does fill up in the summer months and we need to order our buses in advance, so please register for this early if you plan to attend.

Please stay tuned for more details from the ZAA Decade Representatives about any Friday night activities being planned outside the official reunion events.

ZAA Membership Dues

Your Zama Alumni Association Board of Directors encourages all alumni to become members of the ZAA. Your membership fee is used to support the activities of the ZAA which include but is not limited to providing the ZAA website, maintaining the legal status of the association, and for organizing the reunions.  You may pay your membership dues in advance by selecting future years (paying in advance is *optional* and has been provided per alumni request).

A non-member fee of $50 will be charged for alumni who attend the reunion but who are not or do not want to be ZAA members. Guests of alumni are not required to pay membership dues or non-member fees--this includes the non-member family members you may be bringing to the reunion. Simply register them at the Member/Family rate when checking out.

Late Fees

A late fee of $25 may be required if you register after the registration deadline of June 15th.  Please contact us if you are registering late.

Cancellation and Refunds

If you cancel your paid registration, your fees will be refunded in full prior unless your cancellation results in the Zama Alumni Association becoming responsible per a contractual agreement.  Please contact us as soon as possible if you need to cancel your registration. Typically we are contractually obligated for all activities 30 days in advance of the event, so refunds for cancellations inside of that timeframe will be unlikely.

Cancellations of hotel reservations are between alumni and the hotel, and are made according to their policy.
