From the Fall 2009 "Knightlines"

 "Reunion 2011 will be at the lovely Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort located just outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico, on the Santa Ana Pueblo Indian Reservation.  They have given us an amazing and unheard of rate of $135 (plus local taxes)! [I assume that is per night] Check out their website at for a look at this beautiful property.  August 4-7, 2011.  Hotel reservations are not open yet so please refrain from calling.  Watch for more details in the "Spring Knightlines." 


Click on the link above to open the form and then print it out on your computer.  Mailing instructions, registration fees, etc. are all described in the form.


Reunion Flyer Reproduced Below:

Register now and


Hyatt Tamaya Resort & Spa, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Core dates: Thursday, August 4 through Sunday, August 7, 2011

CORE DATES: WHAT’S INCLUDED: As in the past, although the core dates are Thursday through Sunday (August 4-7), we expect many people will choose to arrive a day or two early. In fairness to all, however, the registration fee covers only events on the core dates. At a minimum, your registration fee will include the Thursday night "Teen Club;" the Friday night reception (with food) and "Teen Club;" the Saturday evening dinner/dance; and the Sunday morning breakfast. Except for the Sunday breakfast, reunion activities are open to adults only (age 21 and over). Details will come in the confirmation packet described below. (Friends of Bill W. will be meeting at the hotel.) Registration fees support certain fixed reunion expenses, including DJs, print-ing and mailing of this and other reunion materials, some costs associated with site investigation, and other administrative costs, such as finding people and keeping in touch with them in between reunions so we can tell them about reunions when the time comes.

SPOUSES AND CHILDREN: Adults (including your children aged 21 and over) may register for the entire reunion; children under 21 are invited to the Sunday breakfast only. The confirmation packet described be-low will include an "add-on" form for registering children. The add-on form can also be used to add your spouse/significant other/friend, but you may want to include him or her in your initial registration in order to get the "early bird" rate.

CANCELLATION POLICY: We hope no one has to cancel, but if you do, the only penalty will be a $10 cancellation fee if your cancellation is received (at the same address as for registrations) by June 30, 2011. If your cancellation is received after June 30, you’ll get a 50% refund, except that if you fail to cancel by July 25, 2011, or simply don’t show up, there will be no refund. Details on how to cancel your registration will be in your confirmation packet.

CONFIRMATION PACKET: After you register, you will receive a confirmation packet detailing all you will need to know about "Meet Us at the Rio Grande." We plan to start sending confirmation packets some-time in Spring 2011.

HOTEL RATES AND RESERVATIONS: Our special rate at this 4-star resort is $135 per night for standard rooms beginning August 1 through August 10 in case you wish to arrive early or stay late (based on availabil-ity). The rate is for up to two people per room and is subject to local taxes (currently 11.5 %). There is an addi-tional charge for triple and quad occupancy. Junior Suites are available at the rate of $229 plus tax. Please note that the hotel’s typical resort fee of $16 per night/per room has been waived for our group! This rate is guaran-teed only until July 17, 2011, or until our room block is filled, whichever comes first! Therefore, we suggest that you reserve your room as soon as possible—you can always cancel without penalty up to 72 hours before arrival.

To make a room reservation: Call the Hyatt Regency Tamaya at toll free (888) 421-1442 or direct at (402) 592-6464 and specifically say "Madrid/Torrejón High School Reunion," OR reserve online at: A credit card number or a cash deposit of the first night’s lodging will be required to guarantee your reservation.

QUESTIONS: You can reach Reunion Registrar Carmen Adams at (706) 206-0358 by calling before 10 p.m. Eastern Time. If she is not in when you call, please leave your number and the best time to call you back.

State Bird of New Mexico

RoadrunnerNew Mexico's state bird is the Roadrunner
(Geococcyx californianus).

Officially adopted March 16, 1949. It was adopted under the name "Chaparral Bird". In Spanish, it is called "El Correcaminos".

The comical roadrunner prefers running to flying and has been clocked at speeds of 15 miles per hour. They are approximately 22 inches in length and their diet consists of insects, lizards, centipedes, mice and snakes.


The resort is in Bernalillo, the small pueblo just north of Albuquerque.

Map copied from this location:

Info on the immediate area gathered from the Internet:

Driving from Albuquerque to Bernalillo - From

Instead of taking I-25 to Bernalillo, try driving north on NM 47 (2nd Street) which turns into NM 313 north of Alameda Road. This route takes you through the farmland of the Sandia Pueblo east of the Rio Grande. As you pass through Bernalillo before reaching US 550 in the center of town, the road takes you through a historic district of older Spanish homes and businesses.

You could also drive north from Rio Rancho on NM 528 (west of Corrales) but this is route is full of urban sprawl; alternately, drive through Corrales (with it's own stretch of historic Hispanic buildings) on NM 448 which loops around to join NM 528.


If you haven't visited this part of the country before, you may wish to consider allowing more time to take in the sights it has to offer.  

The phrase "Land of Enchantment," describes New Mexico's vast vistas and unique culture(s) well.

A few safety tips for those of you unfamiliar with the American Southwest:

Jumping Cactus - Opuntia fulgida.jpg (413329 bytes)

Jumping Cactus    Do Jumping Cholla Cactus Really Jump?  

According to Wikipedia, these cacti don't grow above 3,000 feet so there probably aren't any around the resort.

Flash Floods - Especially during the Southwest's "monsoon season" which is late summer, early fall.


We post the below list on every reunion page to give classmates an idea of how much fun they're going to have if they come.
