Please read the following instructions carefully.

To aid in the reservation process, we've provided two online reservation forms, for immediate, electronic transmission of your reservation. This is the preferred method of reserving your place and dinner. It also helps us verify and update your contact information in our records, and also helps to contain and reduce future costs, so we can maintain this great price, for future banquets.

You may use the new EXPRESS Reservation form, ONLY, if you attended the last banquet, and there has been no change to any of your contact information (e.g. address, phone (s) or email addresses). If you did not attend the last banquet, or if there has been ANY change to your contact information, please use the STANDARD form, so that we can update your contact information for future event notices.

This is also the place to send your regrets (although, we really do hope you'll attend), and also convey any special greeting or messages you want to share with your brother Gaels. Just complete the STANDARD form, and we'll handle your regrets and/or your messages.

If you aren't sure whether you'll be able to attend, make your reservation anyway. We will accept cancellations through April 15th (Income Tax Day). We need as accurate a count of the total number of dinners, and each dinner selection, as is possible, by this date, so if you reserve and find that you can't attend, you can either email us, call us, or just use the STANDARD form to cancel your reservation, by entering "Cancel" in the "Special Needs or Special Messages" field at the bottom of the form.

Please make note of the following new payment and seating assignment process:


  • Seating assignments will be made to "class assigned tables" based upon the date of receipt of your reservation, AND the date of receipt of your payment. Table assignments will be printed on your master ticket along with your dinner choice. All tickets will be presented to your server, at the time dinner is served.

  • All pre-payments must be received by April 15th, to complete the reservation process. At-the-door payments of $55.00, will continue to be accepted, in good faith, for valid reasons, ONLY WITH ADVANCE RESERVATIONS, but will not assure seating with your class. Seating assignment will be made at the door, wherever open seats are available.

  • Reservations made, with at-the-door payments due, will be billed to you, if you are a "no-show," and have not cancelled your reservation, before the banquet. (We must pay for all dinners we order. Dinners ordered, not served, and not paid for by the reserver, must still be paid for by us. Please be considerate of us and your classmates, as we must all take the loss if you reserve, to pay at-the-door, and simply don't show.)

A few words of caution/instruction about completing the form.

  • All fields marked "Required Response," MUST be completed, or a choice made, or the form will not allow you to submit.

  • All fields marked "Not Required," are optional fields that may be left BLANK, but you must CLEAR any text that is already in the field.

  • Use only your mouse, or TAB key, to navigate to each field. Use your mouse to highlight and remove any "default" text already in a field. DO NOT USE THE "ENTER" KEY ON YOUR KEYBOARD, AS THIS WILL RESET AND CLEAR THE FORM OF ANY ENTRIES YOU'VE MADE. YOU'LL HAVE TO BEGIN AGAIN, IF THIS HAPPENS.

  • When you finish, and click the "SUBMIT" button, you should get a Form Confirmation page. You may print this page, if you wish. Please use the "Return to the form" link at the bottom of this page, and do not use the "BACK" button on your browser, to "toggle" back and forth between the form and the confirmation, as this will "re-send" the information each time you toggle back to the confirmation page.

You will need to submit this form only once, for each person attending, or sending "Special Messages."

Thanks for your support of our efforts to expedite the handling of your reservation, and continuing efforts to keep your contact information current and regularly updated.

Until we see you at the banquet, Gaels Forever!
