    SoCal Hangers > Cleveland NF > 20-24 Oct. 2021 > Fools of October Hang VIII !!

    Reservations for the SoCal Hangers 2021 Reunion Hang have been made: October 20-24th, 2021!!!

    While this will be a reunion hang for many of us, we'd also love to see some new faces. I understand it can be a bit daunting to see just how handsome I am in real life. So the more dilution we have, the better.

    I CAN'T EXPLAIN HOW EXCITED I AM TO FINALLY SEE YOU ALL AGAIN, EVEN RYAN!

    The Ballad of the SoCal Hangers

    “Someone’s gonna throw a couple dozen logs on the fire. (Hey Pedro!)
    Someone's gonna get bleary-eyed and strange. (But not that strange!)
    I can’t believe my luck, it smells like someone punched a skunk
    It’s just another old fashioned SoCal Hangers Hang
    Let's get some sheets between the trees
    Car camping's easier on the knees
    But harder on the liver, so they say.
    Oh me, oh me, oh my
    Let’s eat some Toxic Granny Apple Pie
    It’s just another old fashioned SoCal Hangers Hang!"

    We'll have a potluck Saturday night and a Haunted Hammock contest to be judged by popular opinion Friday night for an as yet to be determined prize.

    We'll have hiking, games and a clinic or two TBA. PLEASE let me know if you are interested in leading any classes or activities. It would be great if someone coordinated a tournament bracket for horse shoes or some other leisure sport

    If you have a hammock stand please bring it. We haven’t had to use them yet but I’d rather have them and not need them than the other way around.

    Falcon Group campground is off the Ortega Highway in the mountains just west of Lake Elsinore. The campground is removed from the city, and is close enough to civilization in case we need supplies. There is water (non-potable) and vault toilets present.

    On the off chance we run out of parking spaces we can park just outside of the entrance with a wilderness pass available at the small store just before you turn off of The Ortega Highway (74). I’ll grab a few extra Wilderness Passes for any vehicles that need to be kept at the entrance. If we run out of trees we can use the adjacent Blue Jay Campground for overflow but I think if we’re all willing to make it work and spread out we will be fine. Trees at the group site are first-come, first-served.

    As of this moment, the campground is closed but we were up there in May and saw the forestry service working on it so I will take a trip up there in the cmong months once everything gets re-opened.

    CONFIRMATION AND COSTS

    I will go through the records to make sure i know everybody who has paid so far and post the running list as more people confirm.

    Please confirm if you are going asap for planning purposes As we get closer I will be posting updated lists of attendees.

    Make sure to include your name and you HammockForums User Name if you have one. We covered the site up front so any help in this regard is appreciated. If you don’t pay in advance, please remember to bring cash with you! Either way, confirm below.

    Cost is $30 per adult ($15 per 17 and under)
    This cost is the same whether you stay one night or three. Think of it as a “Cost of Admission”
    Any overage will go towards reserving the site for next year so we don’t have to go so deep out of pocket for it.

    Please send your fees via PayPal to:

    paypal.me/WillieCash

    As we get closer to the event I will post more information (directions, what to bring, etc...)

    I hope you are looking forward to it as much as I am!

    Confirmed over on FB, but will confirm here too.

    I'm a little overly excited about this because it will be my first group hang and can not wait!

    Can you believe the first one was in 2011?

    This is technically our tenth year.

    Looks like a good spot, and -- it has trees. Trees are not a given in So Cal.

    I guess, what, sign up, head up, and look for the "So Cal Hangers" banner?

    And what does one generally bring for the potluck? I'm interested in coming, but I'm primarily a backpacker. I suspect freeze dried food isn't quite what people will be wanting.
