Ankara Reunion '05

Ankara Reunion '05 was held August 2005 in Dallas, TX. This 3-day event, with an attendance of over 400, has been heralded by many as the best AnkaraReunion ever.

Highlights of AnkaraReunion '05 included events and entertainment never before offered -- a mini Turkish Bazaar, catered samplings of Turkish cuisine, Operation Footlocker, a private screening of BRATS - Our Journey Home, a silent auction, four large private party suites and perhaps the most popular addition -- the finest classical Turkish belly dancers available in the USA. We hope we've set a new standard for all major Ankara Reunions to come!
