Orders placed after June 12th should arrive by July 8th, 2003. Please be patient. All tickets will arrive with time to spare before the Gathering.
Attention: For everyone taking part in
We have been hearing some rumors concerning the Gathering this year and wanted to take this moment to clarify things. The first of which is concerning Gathering tickets. Some are under the impression that they will be able to buy tickets at the front gate ... this is totally false. All tickets for the Gathering are completely sold out and there will be no more tickets available for purchase online or down at the Crystal Forest. We ask that all those without tickets do not show up, as you will be turned away, without exception. We have beefed up security to ensure that those without tickets do not get in, as this would cause serious problems for the Juggalos that paid to get in. We have security guards with hunting dogs patrolling the entire perimeter of the park connected with radios to the state police. Anyone found trying to sneak into the park grounds will be arrested for trespassing and taken to jail. Those found inside the park without a ticket will be taken directly to the Security Tent where a phone will be available for them to arrange transportation home (for those not driving). Make sure you have your ticket with you at all time, no exceptions will be made. You will need your ticket to get on the shuttle buses, to enter the Crystal Forest, to enter the Parking Lot, and to partake in all of the activities and events on the park grounds.
Also for those of you driving to this year's Gathering keep in mind that roadblocks will be in effect to check non-locals for Gathering tickets on all roads leading to the Crystal Forest about a mile out. If even one person in your car does not have a ticket then the whole car will be turned away and not allowed to pass. Also from what we have been told, be warned of police pulling over anyone speeding in about a 10 mile radius from the Crystal Forest's location. We have been told that the police lay speed traps whenever an event is happening down there and they have been known to search cars when they do pull someone over.
Unfortunately these drastic measures are absolutely necessary to assure that the Gathering goes down this year. It is sold to capacity, and to go beyond that jeopardizes the entire event, and there is no way in hell we are going to let the Juggalos who paid to get in get the bone because of some gate crashers.
If you are a Juggalo with tickets to the Gathering and know someone thinking about trying to gate crash, do us all a favor and let them know it is a bad mistake.
Now that all of that shit is out of the way, we don't know about y'all, but we're getting chills over here, 'cuz the Gathering is just over a week away! And boy o boy, is it gonna be the bomb diggity -- aaw boy, believe that shit! Psychopathic is hyped and ready to freak it level 10+ hard. Get ready for four days to remember!!
Gathering of the Juggalos 2003
* Admission is a standard price, regardless of age. It includes free parking and admission to all events. If necessary, public sleeping areas are available with this admission price, though you are probably going to be more comfortable getting a campsite or a hotel. Optionally, you could also sleep in your car if you like, once again free with this admission price. Hotels and campsites are not included in this admission price.
That's right ninja, this year's Gathering of the Juggalos is being held at a devastatingly huge 250 acre campground located in the forested rock ledges of Eastern Ohio!!! You can't even conceive how big this place is till your there. The park is breathtakingly beautiful, hosting two fishing lakes and the huge Lotus Lake, which allows swimming, snorkeling and canoeing. The main benefits being that the Gathering is now 5 days and 4 nights long with all Juggalos camped out together! Not only that but its now a 24-hour event with parties running all night long as well as seminars, autograph signings, movies and much more. Stop playin' crinkle nuts! This is going to be the bomb flavor of all time!
Don't forget free parking, free water, free showers and a free place to sleep if you want to avoid hotel and camping charges. But if you want a private campground located close to the flavor, you can fit mad amount of ninjas their and split the coast paying next to nothing for a prime spot for all five days.
Tickets for the Gathering as well as sites for the campground go on sale
You cannot book a campsite nor reserve tickets by contacting the campground itself. Both tickets and campgrounds will be sold through HatchetGear.com. You can buy a ticket without a campsite, or a campsite without a ticket (in case you want to get your site before they are gone, but cannot buy a ticket right away).
Now that your wig is orbiting the earth like a satellite; we will move on to try to begin to explain the entire flavor that is about to take place:
Plenty of potable showers will be set up right on the grounds for you to wash that stank ass in a private stall and room. Just don't forget your soap and towels.
Below you will find a list of all the ideas we are putting together for the Gathering of the Juggalos this year followed by a brief description for each. Keep in mind that this is a work in progress and the events listed below are subject to change. We feel however that this is a very accurate reflection on the flavor that's coming this year.

The winning group this year will then be aloud to perform at three separate Psychopathic concerts in the future. All travel and other expenses will be paid for and the group may also put together their show tape right at Psychopathic's Lotus Pod studios!
The Murder Mayhem Show - For this game show four male and female couples will compete against each other to see who can earn the most points by being the best at performing a series of hysterical physical challenges. At the end of each round whoever did the worst will have to under go some sort of embarrassing or disgusting torture or face elimination from the game. Various prizes will be given out along the way but the grand prize winners will receive the ultimate prize of a all expense paid weekend vacation to non other then Europe to visit the Psychopathic European Headquarters!!! Stop playin' titty winks, this is the bomb y'all!
Lingerie Contest - Can we ever get enough of scantily clad Juggalettes? I think not. For this contest lovely and shapely beauties will take the stage as they try and win the crowd over. The most stacked and sexy Juggalette will be determined by applause from the crowd.
Remote Control Car Races - Here six players at a time will race high speed professional remote control cars on a giant obstacle ridden race course with plenty of ramps, tunnels, bottle necks, drops and curves to make it more then entertaining. Contestants are encouraged to ram or sideswipe the competition in order to come out on top and claim the prize.
Miss Juggalette Pageant - Who will be crowned the Juggalette Queen 2003? You have to come to this intense competition to find out.

Volley Ball - Two teams of six will square off with the winning team earning prizes. Everyone will be put into teams as they arrive.
The Neden Game - This contest (not unlike the dating game) has contestants competing in a question/answering game to try to win the admiration of their desire. Everyday there will be two rounds, the first is were five female contestants try to win a date with a Psychopathic employee who will then act as their personal backstage escort for the rest of the day. The second round will consist of five male contestants who are trying to win a lap dance from a certified and stacked stripper. The winner will then receive the lap dance right on stage for all to enjoy!!!
Costume Contest - Come dressed to impress because the winner receives a fat prize for their creativity. Make sure you stop by if you don't have a costume yourself as there are plenty of creative fashions to enjoy.
Autographs - All the Psychopathic artists as well as other famous personalities at the Gathering will hold Autograph signings. Thus ensuring your chance for a one on one encounter with these demented individuals.
Paint Ball - This was suppose to happen last year but was logistically deemed impossible. Now however since we are outdoors in the woods, it is very possible. This is perhaps the most devastating new event at the Gathering this year and everyone (and we mean everyone) has to play this at least once. 20 players at a time will battle it out in a thick, forested area of the park providing plenty of cover for tactics. Players then will need to use stealth, cunning and quick thinking if they want to survive as the competition is sure to be fierce. Official referees will be on hand to ensure fair play.
Canoeing - Bring your own canoe and go out for a relaxing cruise on the Lotus Lake.
Big Money Rustlas Auditions - Yes the movie is finally in the first stages of production and this late summer we are planning to begin filming. Here is your chance to be apart of this highly anticipated movie by having a chance to get a role in it. We will be holding auditions for a part in the movie and we are guaranteeing at least two ninjas from these auditions, will have a part in the film. Also the scene that each person will be acting out is taken right from the movie script itself. This is a once in a life time opportunity to become a star.
Swimming - Enjoy a cool and refreshing dip in the Lotus Lake as theirs no better way to escape the rays of the summer days. Or just chill out on the natural sandy beech and take a quick rest. Lifeguards will be on duty to ensure everyone's safety.
Jousting - This big inflatable game involves contestants battling it out with big padded sticks to see who can knock their opponent off their pedestal first.
Obstacle Course - This gigantic (60' long by 15'tall) inflatable obstacle course is a wonder to behold, let alone play on. It has been designed to challenge your stamina as competitors race one another to see who can be the first to complete this fun but grueling course.
Bouncy Boxing - A big inflatable game where two fighter enter an inflatable ring, don big padded gloves and pound each other until the loser breaks down like a little punk ass and cries.
Cliff Jumping - Located on the south side of the Lotus Lake is a 20' cliff face known as Dead Mans Drop where anyone crazy enough can jump off and free fall to the water below. A lifeguard at the top of the cliff and in a boat at the bottom will ensure everyone's safety at all times.
Fishing - With two separate fishing lakes located right on the grounds anyone interested can get in some serious fishing tactics. Just make sure to bring your own gear and get ready to cook some fresh fish slowly over an open fire for some very tasty vittles.
Psychopathic Auction - Some of the rarest and one of a kind items straight from the Psychopathic archives. You will be amazed at the high quality of some of these items and the rarity and karmic power they will bestow upon their owner. All those who successfully bid on an item will then have a roll off to see who among them will win %25 of all the money that was made at the auction. Another %25 of the money will be donated to the International Rett Syndrome Association.
Burning Man Ghost - Fifteen years ago a fisher was killed as his boat was hit by lightning during an electrical storm, that ignited the gas tank in the small boat's engine. He immediately caught on fire and burning to death his body fell into the lake never to be seen again. Now according to urban legend on July 19th every year at precisely midnight, if you look toward the island in the middle of the lake you will see his ghostly apparition burning a bright red for several minutes before he falls once again back into his watery grave. He is known locally as the Burning Man Ghost.
Snorkeling - Plenty of snorkeling gear will be on hand for ninjas to explore the watery depths of the Lotus Lake. If you have never experienced this before we highly recommend it. It is an aquatic adventure that you are likely never to forget.
Scuba Diving - If you are a certified scuba diver then bring your gear for all the underwater exploration you like, including the cabin cruiser that is currently resting on the lakes bottom.
Sky Divers - Periodically sky divers will fall from the sky as they throw free merchandise to any lucky enough to be below them. When and where they will strike is unknown but they are reported to like landing on the beach and in the lake.
Late Night Parties - On Thursday, Friday and Saturday night we will be hosting official Psychopathic parities that will run from midnight to the morning light on each night. Come and chill around the giant bonfire as a live DJ spins music, videos play on a big screen and laser lights shoot off in all directions. Tiki torches and picnic tables will be placed all around the area to create a good ambiance. The different parities being hosted are as follows:
Outdoor Movie Theatre - All night long movies and videos will be played on a giant outdoor screen so ninjas can relax and peep the flavor. Plenty of chairs and tables will be available or just lie out on the grass the choice is yours. We will be showing a variety of Juggalo inspired movies including the ultra rare collection of Psychopathic's own Homemade movies.
Faygo Armageddon - Massive amounts of Faygo blasted into the crowd to leave everyone wet and wild. The explosions of liquid pleasure will reach new heights, as the chaos reaches a climatic conclusion, baptizing everyone in the diamond rain of the Gathering 2003.
