Ticket Price: The ticket price is all inclusive (Chapel Service, Drinks Reception, seated hot buffet lunch with wine).
RMAS Report: When registering for the event you will be able to order a copy of your RMAS report (UK OCdts only) which will be available for collection at the reunion. We politely ask for a donation of £15 to cover the administrative costs of retrieving and copying the report, a very labour intensive process for a small charity.
Biographies: During the online booking process you will have the option to complete a short paragraph outlining your activities in the intervening years. These biographies will be compiled into a document for distribution at the reunion.
Photographs: We can play a silent loop of your own RMAS photos on a large screen during lunch. The easiest option is to compile a file of photos amongst yourselves and bring a laptop or USB stick to connect on the day.
Unfortunately there is no accommodation in the Academy, alternative options include:
Premier Inn Camberley, closest hotel situated immediately opposite Staff College Gate (A30)
Travelodge Camberley (central)
Macdonald Frimley Hall
Are there ID requirements to enter the Academy?
You will need to bring some photographic ID such as driving licence or passport with you. Entry to RMAS will be by the main (Staff College) gate only.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Your designated parking area within the Academy will be indicated on your car pass. If travelling by train Camberley is the nearest station, but not the most convenient for the majority of train journeys. Blackwater or Farnborough (Main) may provide better connections. If you are travelling by taxi please use one of the taxi companies listed below as they have security cleared drivers, all other taxis will be required to drop you at the gate. You are strongly advised to book in advance as there are only a limited number of security cleared drivers in each company (request one when booking).

In the event of an attendee requesting a refund prior to the closing date we will retain £3.00 of the event fee paid in order to cover the online transaction handling fee levied on the charity. Late bookings can only be accepted subject to catering availability, a late booking surcharge of £10 will apply.
