The 72nd Old Timers Reunion was a blast! The theme this year was Prohibition, The Roaring 20s, and The Age of Jazz, and everyone came dressed to the nines on both Friday and Saturday nights. There was a great lineup of entertainment, with Dirty Mae kicking off the Speakeasy party on Friday night, our favorite Queen City Funk and Soul rocking the pavilion on Saturday night and bluegrass at the River Party with Johnny Staats and the Delivery Boys on Sunday. There was a Speakeasy Crawl, a doo-dah parade, and all the classic OTR contests.
The caver family is what truly makes OTR the great event that it is, and this year was no exception. TRA members were able to sponsor up to 5 guests, and many people took advantage of the opportunity to bring their friends and family to OTR. Did you see how many OTR Virgins we had this year? The Virgins were recognized at the TRA Awards ceremony with a raffle that awarded two (2) 50% off admissions and one (1) FREE admission to OTR 2024. They also received gifts and the first ever OTR Virgin pin.
It was a weekend full of fun, laughter, and camaraderie, and we can’t wait to do it all again next year when we celebrate Caves, Cavers and Caving. Hope to see you there!
