Hear ye, hear ye:

Thou art hereby cordially invited to an event of the utmost distinction: the dirtbag shindig of the millenium, the hooligan hootenanny to end all hootenannies, the bi-annual gathering of all the finest shredheads, senders, and stoke enthusiasts in all the land — CREEKATHON!!!!!

What in tarnation is this CREEKATHON business, you might be wondering?

Creekathon is a club-wide potluck gathering held at the illustrious and esteemed Walnut Creek, located a mere hop and a skip (~20 mins) from Grounds. If you’ve never been before, we will have a chilled-out base camp set up from 12:00 to 4:30ish with food, music, slacklines, instruments, and hammocks galore, with more active side trips like disc golf, biking, hiking, trail running, kayaking, paddleboarding, etc. leaving from it at various times.

“Creek-a-thon is a time when outdoorsy plebeians and proletarians, spider-monkeys and groundwellers, shrederonies and shrederinas alike come together to transcend all political and racial division and unite as one with the Gnar™.” -Thomas Shredison IV, 420 B.C.

If you like the warmth of friendship, the feeling of adrenaline coursing through your veins, or just loungin’ around with (e)no worries at all, Creekathon is the place for you.

The club will provide a well-balanced meal of all the main food groups: burgers, hot dogs, and salty snacks. (We’ll also have a birthday cake for Allie, who’ll be turning 20 the day before!)

If you feel so inclined to make a food contribution of your liking, you are encouraged to do so!

TRIP LEADERS AND DRIVERS, (not to sound desperate but) we need you!

Unlike NRGE, you can join the main adventure without joining any side-trips. That said, you may get more out of Creekathon if you spice it up with fun outdoorsy activities on the side. For that to be the case, we need trip leaders! Talk to Charlie “the trout tickler” Haywood (540-319-1117) or Allie “spider monkey extraordinaire” Lowy (301-996-6374) if you need any trip ideas.

The main carpool will depart from Echols: Brick Wall By Side Door™ at noon, drivers please show up at 11:45! Cars will be returning at all times, so fret not about getting home. If you plan on coming separately from the main carpool, STILL JOIN THIS TRIP so we know can have enough food for everyone. Because the park is so close to grounds, gas will NOT be reimbursed. Once at the ‘Nut, trips will leave and return throughout the day.

So, in conclusion: COME HANG! We love you and want to see your beautiful, shining faces.

-Allie & Charlie
