Once you have paid, your rego is nonrefundable except in the event of COVID related cancellation. No refunds at all will be given after 1-29-21 due to the necessity of solidifying funds and plans for the event.
COVID precautions will be decided as we get closer to the event as it is four months away and status may change, however we will be in line with Jefferson County guidelines for events. As you did last year, you will need to sign a waiver releasing Vulcan Hash House Harriers and the hotel from any liability in regards to COVID 19 and the requirement that if you do test positive after the event, let MM know so we can inform the rest for quarantine and to watch for symptoms. This information will remain anonymous. Signing this will be part of the check in process at the door. Without this waiver, you will not be allowed to attend the event.
Please be respectful to those masking or trying to social distance. Remember that CONSENT IS LAW
The quest for Red Dress Queen starts from the second you step through the door! Our reigning Queen LeoHard will be watching and will pick 3-4 princesses while on trail on Saturday. This princesses will have to show their mettle through two tasks...one that involves imbibing with royal poise and one that requires showmanship. Make sure that you're brushing up on your showtunes in case you're chosen!
Check in and covid procedures starts Friday at 4. Please be patient with us.
Dinner at 6
After dinner is our dance party. Theme this year is My Bloody Valentine. As always, do with that what you will. Make it gory, make it glam, make it vampy, we don't care, but remember that nudity is only allowed on the third floor
Shooting Star is at midnight. Get with PBR (Stephanie Taylor) to host a shot.
Saturday morning, breakfast is provided by the hotel. Be nice to them, they put up with a lot from us and we tend to all crawl down at once. As always, we will have the bloody mary and mimosa bar until supplies are gone. Java H3 will also be brewing. Bring your french presses and beans to share! This is a draft punk style coffee brewing born out of too much shitty coffee (or worse, no coffee at all) at events so bring your best! If you don't bring to share then resign yourself to what you can get from the hotel.
Whether you're sipping on the hair of the dog or the nectar of the gods, the hab fair will be happening Saturday morning before lunch and trail. Let us spend money for your kennel and wear your swag!
Saturday after lunch, we board a bus into Birmingham where opening circle will be RA’ed by our own lovely PBR. LET THE TRAIL BEGIN!! AFLAC and Catcher in the Eye are our hares again this year and we know that they will give us a good one.
Do whatever you need to do to get ready for dinner at 6, followed by the raffle to raise money for the Birmingham Crisis Center, and the crowning of your 2022 Red Dress Queen!
Post crowning will be Olympdicks hosted by My Bloody Palestine so start picking teams now!
Sunday is help us clean up and GTFO! There is no 'official' brunch, but we will be heading back to Marty's GM in Irondale. They have expanded their space and are excited to see us come back.
