Ripley hunt changes

8 posts in this topic

I read online that there are some new changes to the rules of the ripley hunt. Looks like you can now get there at 530 am the day before the hunt.

There is also a 10.00 per truck fee and if the road outside the camp fills up they will let you in for 30.00 per truck additional or you will have to come back later.

That's not the way I interpret it. As it reads, it states that if you are in the waiting area before 5:00am the day before the hunt, you will get charged the $30.00.

I copied this from the rules:

3. Enter and exit Camp Ripley only through the Railroad Security Gate by the Mississippi River Bridge on Highway 115. Do not

arrive or line up outside the railroad gate until directed by traffic control officers! NEW FOR 2009: An entrance fee

of $10.00 per vehicle will be collected by the military at the railroad gate to offset traffic management, security, range

patrol, and road maintenance costs associated with the hunt. At discretion of traffic management officers, if parked vehicles

back up too much on CR76 prior to the posted arrival time, those vehicles will be forced to leave the area or enter Camp

Ripley. Those vehicles entering Camp Ripley prior to the posted arrival time will be charged a $30.00 entrance fee.Only cash or checks will be accepted, and checks must be made payable to the Camp Ripley Mess Fund. After paying

the entrance fee, each vehicle will receive a validation that must remain visible when exiting and re-entering the installation.

I would bet that there are going to be plenty of people that will pay the fee just to get in early, and get their spot.

    • While the memes and banter is entertaining, at some point the rubbers gotta meet the road and the party in charge right now has to show they have the maturity and the vision to lead the country.  So, at this point and into the future I ask the resident Republicans to show me why they were the right choice and to demonstrate the way they would expect everyone else to behave by doing so themselves.
