April 25-28, 2019

Dear CBL Members and Bear Hunt XIX Attendees,

A day may come when the courage of normal men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day.

On this glorious day, we gather to drink and dance and be merry! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you to don your finest linen togas or glorious warriors’ leather and stand with us at Bear Hunt XIX: The Four Bears of Mount Olympus.

On behalf of the Bear Hunt XIX Planning Team and the Carolina Bear Lodge Board of Directors, I call upon you to join our immortal quest as we gather for another extraordinary Carolina Bear Lodge Dionysian festival.

The Ocean Park Resort’s welcoming, friendly staff is ready for our return April 25-28, 2019.

Your run package will include:

>>>> A pre-mixer on Wednesday

>>>> Access to all Bear Hunt XIX 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 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.

Each year, Bear Hunt selects a charity to support financially. For 2019, the beneficiary will be the LOWCOUNTRY Food Bank, which assists the homeless community in Myrtle Beach.

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 2018 Bear Hunt guest run packages end Dec. 31, 2018, and cannot be applied to special pricing for 2019 events.   

Save to the date to lace up your sandals and bring your togas or gladiator gear to Myrtle Beach for Bear Hunt XIX: The Four Bears of Mount Olympus!

Jack Whittemore,
Chair of Bear Hunt XIX: The Four Bears of Mount Olympus

  1. 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.
