General Info: Come join the Jolly Roger H3 and the Nakid Pirate H3 as we invade the Ginnie Springs Campground, located at 5000 NE 60th Ave, High Springs, FL 32643, https://goo.gl/maps/YM7HN for a fun filled weekend of camping, floating and hashing! This event includes 2 nights of camping (Fri-Sat, May 15h & 16th) and Sun, May 17th until ˝ hour before dusk. The registration (rego) fee pays for your camping for 2 nights, 4 trails, a gimmie, dinner (on Sat night only), and all the beer you can drink from Fri, May 15th at noon until, Sun, until May 17th about 10 AM. All other beverages and meals are on you as this is a "campout".
Gimmie: The gimmie will include a soft sided cooler to accommodate a six pack of beer, or whatever, and ice while you float down the river. So there's no need to bring a small cooler for the float trip. We will have beer cans and ice available at the river entry point for you to load into these coolers for the main event only, on Sat, May 16th, so you won’t have to carry them on trail with you. The coolers will have JRH3 logo printed on them. Also included as a gimmie will be a JRH3 event toe tag and some snacks so you won't starve in case you forget there is only one meal included with this campout. Plus the park hash a kitchen next to the office that serves food daily as well.
Cost: Please download the rego form, fill it out, sign it and send it along with your rego fee payable to RICHARD GEERS, 7007 Orvicti Ct, Wesley Chapel, FL 33544. Or if you want to do everything online, you can send a signed photo copy of the rego form (or at least the info it asks for) in an email to email@example.com and then use your bank's on line bill pay system to send a check to the above address. Sorry, we don't accept PayPal. Cost is $69 until Mar 31st. The cost goes up to $79 on April 1st, $89 on May 1st, and $99 on May 14th, or if you just show up and pay in person at Ginnie Springs. But you must let us know you're coming in advance so we can add your nerd names to the list at the park's check in office. Contact Dab for special arrangements for just Fri or just Sat. Add $20 dollars for each additional camping nights before and/or after the specified dates. The hash rego fee is non-refundable, but it is transferable, meaning you can sell it to someone else if you need to cancel.

Camping: Bring your
sleeping bag, tent and/or camper! We will probably have both sides of the
Deer Springs camping area at our disposal, depending
upon how many people sign up and pay. There is
no electricity in the campground, so come prepared to make your own! However
there is one fresh water faucet available. Please, NO GLASS CONTAINERS of any
sort are allowed in the park. So, pour your liquor into plastic containers before
entering the park! See this map for our
designated camping areas,
parking areas, etc.
Check In: Upon arrival at the Ginnie Springs Park, go to the check in office next to the park entrance and let them know you are with the Jolly Roger H3 Group. DO NOT pay for your own camping! Your camping fees will be pre-paid for you by the JRH3 so you can get the discount. Once checked in, you will get a pass to put in the window of your vehicle which must be displayed at all times. Then proceed to the Deer Springs camping area and look for Dab, or other representative, to get your gimmie. Camping spots will be on a first come first serve basis.
Trails: The first trail will be the JRH3 - "Bungle Through The Jungle Trail", on Fri night, May 15th at 9 PM. Then at midnight, will be a Nakid Pirate H3, "Bring Your Own Full Moon Trail". The main event, will be the JRH3 - "Treasure Hunt/Float Trip", on Sat, May 16th, at noon. This will be a a combination foot trail/treasure hunt trail that parallels the river & a float trip down river back to our campsite with an optional, on hare kayak/canoe trail for those who's prefer to paddle. Make sure you bring along some sort of floatation device for the float trip. If not, you can rent one there for extra. Later Saturday night/early Sunday morning, around mid-night, there will be the Nakid Pirate H3 - "Wear Anything But Clothes Trail".
Aluminum Wank Challenge: This year we will be holding an Aluminum Wank Challenge on Sat morning, May 16th at 10 AM. This will entail swimming, running and some sort of wheeled vehicle endeavor. Participants will receive a special Aluminum Man Challenge patch for participating, compliments of Dog F'r & Thumper Humper, for an additional $5 paid directily to Dog F'r during the event.
