A Letter From The Chairman

Greetings from St. Louis!

St Louis has long been nicknamed the “Gateway to the West” and the members of the Show-Me Bears invite you to mark your calendars and join us October 30 - November 2, 2014 for A HiBearNation Horror Story. For a second year, our event coincides with Halloween and we are embracing the holiday’s horror theme in providing you a gateway to fun, friendship and fraternity.

Over the past 20 years, HiBearNation events have grown from a small local event to a bear run that last year saw over 530 bears, cubs and their admirers gathering to party and provide financial support to various St Louis LGBT charitable organizations. This year, our committee remains committed to keeping our costs low to provide YOU with the biggest bang for your buck! HiBearNation 19 was such a successful event, that with your help, we were able to raise $15,000 for our very deserving charities.

This year, we are happy to again be partnering with the Crowne Plaza St. Louis Downtown to provide you a comfortable, relaxing environment and convenient after hours party and play location! For those who have attended HiBearnation in years past, welcome back! For first time attendees, come experience a fun-filled weekend of events geared for you to meet burly, bearded men and their fans! More information to come as our schedule of events takes shape.

So, register for HiBearNation 20, make your travel and hotel arrangements and we will be here waiting to entertain you with our brand of Show-Me hospitality here in St. Louis!

Chairman, HiBearNation 20
