Pick Your Own ROMP
Think of it like a cruise excursion. Choose one of 4 FUN Saturday afternoon activities!
From cruising the lake to hitting the hiking trails, off-roading or just chilling, there’s plenty to do during the day. Save your energy for mischief later in the evening, though!
Get ready! There’s tons of new men to meet from the moment you arrive, and familiar faces from last year – from hot theme parties to a cool splash in the pool. Dive in – it’s your weekend to ROMP!
What’s your definition of mischief? Relax, lounge, shop, and enjoy some great eats in town. And in the evening you’ll be sure to find mischief at glow bowling, ROMP in the Dark, and the Friday night Underbear dance party.
ROMP ‘n Bowl at
The Bowling Barn
We take over the bowling alley for this annual special black light “glow party,’ complete with rockin’ tunes. Sport your favorite bright colors to stand out from the crowd…and grab your balls to join the fun!
Munch -n- Mingle Event
