FAQ SECTION

If your question is missing, use the contact form and we can add your question to the list.

Will there be childcare available?

Friday (Not terribly kid-friendly):  
No childcare option for the LHS Battle of the Bands at Nick’s.  Not terribly kid friendly...
Saturday (KID-FRIENDLY!):  
Children welcome at Wagner Park and the Lubbock High School Tour!
Gurss Barn will not have child care.  Visit the link to Lubbock childcare options below.
Sunday:
No childcare option for Overton Brunch.  Fairly kid friendly however…

What are my childcare options, then?

We love your kids and we’re sure you do too. However, it would be in everyone’s best interest to deliver your children to a trusted friend or relative. If you’re fresh out of trusted friends or relatives, please allow us to recommend a great service: http://seekingsitterslubbock.com/ You can also sign up for a free profile on http://www.sittercity.com/ where there are over 500 sitters listed and they can be booked in advance. If that seems to impersonal, Jess A. Segovia, owner of our sponsor Knockout Staging and Runner Service has provided the following information:   "My niece Stephanie Segovia who is home from college babysits on a regular basis at Aldersgate church on Wednesdays and Sundays. If anyone is looking for a babysitter during the reunion weekend she will be available with advanced notice for around $15/hour. Her contact info is 806-577-8681. She is CPR certified and is great with infants."

Are there discounted ticket prices?

Yes, if you buy your early bird tickets it will help us all out tremendously!  After that we can’t guarantee discounts will be allowed as we have the overheads we need to cover.

How do I know where the money will be spent?

We’re spending roughly 40% on venue, 40% on catering, with 20% of other items including  a photographer where photos will be available online for purchase.  The 2016 budget for LHS 1996 was $6000 and they raised $7000 in donations and tickets.  Our budget is less than that.

Will there be a professional photographer?

We have planned for a photographer to take pictures at our events and will upload them to our website in an online gallery.  Add to the gallery now in our LHS1997.rocks Hightail Space.

What if I can only attend one of the events? Will my ticket price be the same?

With the exception of a few nominal fees, all costs incurred in the planning of this weekend are related to Saturday’s events. If you are unable to attend the dinner and party Saturday evening, then you will not need to purchase a ticket. That said, we’d love to see you at all three events!

I have a friend who provides (a service for the reunion). Can they help?

We’re happy to work with anyone who is willing to help!  Fill out the contact form on this website with “I want to help” in the subject line.  Give us the email or phone number of your friend and what you propose they do.  We can’t guarantee anything but those are the steps to follow.

I won’t have a car while I’m in town. Will there be transportation available to events? Does Lubbock have Uber or Lyft?

Thankfully we still have Uber!  The City of Lubbock has Uber but not Lyft.  It works well and you meet some interesting people.  Download Uber on the App Store for Apple iOS and Google Play for Android.  If you don’t know what Uber is, click here. If you are staying at Hyatt Place or Overton Hotel where we have blocks of rooms reserved, ask at the front desk or concierge and try to organize with others staying within the block.  If you want to ask them, call the Sales Office in both hotels about your specific needs.

What is the latest date I can buy my tickets?

We would prefer that you buy your tickets as soon as humanly possible.  We understand this may appear to be Type A.  If you don’t appear to be Type A, click here.

What is dress code for the events?

Short Answer:  
Friday is casual, Saturday is functional, Sunday is optional.  
Long Answer:  
Friday night at Nicks, wear your best sports bar outfit.  Define that as you will. Saturday morning/afternoon is “Athleisure” for walking and running around with kids. Saturday night at Gurss Barn, have fun and represent West Texas in your own way. Sunday Brunch at the Overton you can wear whatever you like!  We’d love to see you.
Fun Answer:
We can probably agree we spent three years trying to impress each other so how about this time we just be comfortable and have fun? In all seriousness, all events are casual so feel free to wear flip flops and a sundress or shorts. We’re calling it West Texas Summer Chic. We might draw the line at muscle shirts, but flannel and docs are always welcome.

I have some pictures and/or videos from high school. How can I include then in our reunion?

Sara Clinehens has kindly offered her professional capacity to edit photos and video into a presentation.  THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED INTO JULY!
Send your photos to sclinehens@gmail.com for the red carpet treatment in the finished product when it’s unveiled on Saturday.  If you have yet to buy tickets or give money until it hurts, please do so through this website  : )

My friend went to LHS, but moved before they could graduate. Can they still go? Can friends from other LHS classes attend too?

No one from Monterey or Coronado is allowed.  KIDDING.  Intermingling is welcome.  Seriously bring whomever you want, and you’re encouraged to tell an entertaining story about them!

How can I help with the Reunion?

The best way to help?  Give money.  Help us fund this thing.  We’ve got volunteers hemorrhaging cash and time.  Volunteering time is good.  Sending money is better.

Which events are BYOB?

Friday you’ll need to buy drinks at Nick’s across the street from the Overton Hotel. Saturday all day is BYOB but only at the Gurss Barn, our Saturday night venue.

Is it illegal to drink alcohol in Lubbock’s public parks?
