Bear Hunt XX

Bear Hunt Slider

Ocean Park Resort 
Myrtle Beach, SC

April 23-26, 2020


Dear CBL Members and Bear Hunt XX Attendees,

On behalf of the Bear Hunt XX Planning Team and the Carolina Bear Lodge Board of Directors, we need you to pull out your patchwork suits, best flannel, rope belts, and top hats. We are using the Bear-veley Hillbillies as inspiration! A rich but still wearing rags story of down home country fashion!

So that we are clear, CBL sees a hillbilly as a person from a remote, rural area, often in the mountains and are what some city slickers refer to those who are proud of being from the country. They are sweet, strong, naive and have a lot of heart!

Aside from that, the beards, broad shoulders and furry chests make me quiver... Woof!!!

The Ocean Park Resort’s welcoming, friendly staff is ready for our return April 23-26, 2020.

Your run package will include:

>>>> A pre-mixer on Wednesday
>>>> Access to all Bear Hunt XX activities
>>>> OPEN BAR – Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings
>>>> Adult Snow Cones and Beer by the pool, Friday and Saturday afternoons
>>>> All meals on Friday and Saturday
>>>> Access to stay at the host resort or overflow facility
>>>> Run bag full of goodies and a T-shirt
>>>> And hours of fun with all the HOT BEARS, CUBS, OTTERS, etc.

Please review our incredible roster of events, accommodations and services at  

Bear Hunt is one of the few Bear Runs mentioned on Wikipedia under gay bear culture, and CBL is working hard to plan another Olympic spectacle. When you purchase your run package, you will receive an Eventbrite confirmation email with codes, special links, and phone numbers needed to book your room at the resort.  NOTE: If you go to the regular resort website or call the resort directly, they will tell you that the resort is booked.

Raffle drawings and other activities are held as fundraisers. As part of your registration, you can pre-purchase charity tickets to be used for the raffles and other fundraising activities. These charity tickets are being sold in $10 increments ($1 per ticket, which will purchase more charity tickets than at the event).

FULL members must enter their CBL membership/website user name as their discount code to receive their discount.  As a reminder, ASSOCIATE memberships that were included in the 2019 Bear Hunt guest run packages end Dec. 31, 2019, and cannot be applied to special pricing for 2020 events.   

Save the date to pull up your britches and bring your flannel or sequence to Myrtle Beach for Bear Hunt XX: The Bear-veley Hillbillies!

Robert Lee,
Chair of Bear Hunt XX: The Bear-veley Hillbillies

  1. BTW…since I dont drive…is there a chance some members are willing to ride share? I would be happy to contribute to the cost of transportation…

  2. Last year was my first time ever doing a bear run and I am so happy that I picked C.B.L. and Bears on Safari Bear Hunt. The event promotion was fantastic as well as meeting and making new friends. I felt welcome at each event and my room was great. I am hoping to make it again this year and renew friendships and enjoy the awesome selection of vendors as well. (“”) (“”) paws on all and big Woofy Woofs to everyone.
