GNI encourages participants at the themed Social Hours to be creative with their costumes, but in a manner that is appropriate to the theme and consistent with the nudist character of The Gathering.

* GNI thanks the sponsoring clubs, cabins, or other groups whose members provide volunteer staffing for Social Hours. Sponsoring groups compete for a prize for best Social Hour. A winner will be chosen by audience applause in the Auditorium on the final evening.

To sponsor a Social Hour, contact the GNI Business Office with the name or cabin number of your group, the available day your group is committing to volunteer, and three theme suggestions (within the guideline, if any, for that day). The Gathering Committee will select the best one and post it here.
