Dear Narimasu Alumni:

Tuscany Suites and Casino
255 EAST FLAMINGO RD. LAS VEGAS, NEVADA 89169
(Sunday to Thursday), April19-23
Updated February 3, 2020
The 2020 Narimasu Alumni Association Reunion will be held in Las Vegas starting Sunday afternoon April 19 and ending Thursday night, the 23rd. A block of 60 rooms at Tuscany Suites was initially reserved, but we will be requesting more as soon as we approach the block – reservations made before March 19, 2020 will be made with the special rates (1 night’s deposit by credit card is required to hold your reservation). If you wait until after the March 19th deadline, you may have to pay a much larger room rate. The 2020 NFL Draft takes place April 24-25 and the impact of 4,000 additional rooms required for that event will definitely have an impact on our ability to get more rooms added to the block. So, it’s best to get your room as soon as you can and remember a 1 night deposit is only required to make your reservation.
As of January 31st, 34 of our 60 rooms blocked have been reserved.
Should all 60 rooms get filled before the March deadline, we will ask to increase the number of rooms, but the March deadline will still apply. More information on Guestroom accommodations and rates are listed below.
Activities planned include tours, shows, hanging out poolside at the large cabana or inside at the bar or groups organizing their own outings. Reunion check-in at the hotel will be in the Gary & Ron Suite. The room number will be publicized at the hotel as ‘Narimasu High Alumni Headquarters’. We will have the Narimasu Footlocker and refreshments there also.
