Anthrax 2022 Registration is now Live!
By popular demand, we’ll be back at Michelle’s Ballroom this year. Expect the usual Anthrax craziness over 3 days, including the Friday night prelube run, and the Sunday hangover run. In fact, if the stars and harelines align, you can hash for 9 consecutive days leading up to Anthrax!
As always, the CH3 Code of Conduct is in effect. Please review it and comply.
Here is the schedule as of today. Expect a few tweaks as the event approaches.
