Just a reminder Baltimore Sports Fans! Party of the year comin' up!

The Ravens Nests will be having their Rave and the Ravens Roosts will be having their annual convention in Ocean City Maryland Thursday May 30th to Sunday June 2nd 2013. It is always a serious Purple Party y'all! The Baltimore Ravens are also having their Beach Bash at the Clarion Hotel at the same time.


I am providing this reminder because all the Roost members are registering for the convention this month (LIKE RIGHT NOW!) . You get a bull roast, a big ass party, a bunch of sports activities, and souvenirs for $55. If you are interested here is a list of Roosts to contact to see if you can register with them. You don't have to be a member to join in the fun, but you have to register through a Roost. Even if you don't register you can still hang out at Castle in the Sand. Just buy your own libations.

I am sure some of the Nest members here can provide some insight on their Rave. Between the two Ravens Fan organizations and their many, many friends there are usually 4,000 plus Ravens Fans in OC for the weekend after Memorial Day every year.

Here's a list of Roosts:
