I'm on a budget. What other options are available?

We recognize that CCBC is an expensive venue. Here are some ideas that may help you participate in more affordable ways.

  • Participate in our bunk room lottery by registering on or before November 30th, 2021.
  • CCBC has both RV and tenting options that are cheaper than rooms and allow you to stay on-site.
  • There are many other accommodation options in the Palm Springs area. Your registration includes full access to CCBC, whether you stay there or not.
  • You can come for the day! Day passes include 8 hours of access to CCBC including our dedicated play areas.

Who's behind this event?

This event is owned and operated by Red Handed Events LLC in conjunction with CCBC. It is organzed by the people who brought you Whappz, the Dudes Spankin' Dudes Podcast, and the hosts of LA's hottest spanking parties.

Can I bring my own food and drinks?

Yes. You may bring outside food and drink into the resort, including alcoholic beverages. No glass bottles are permitted however.

What happens if I can't come and need to cancel?

We want you to book early, and we understand that sometimes unforseen things come up. If you notify us 14 days or more prior to the start of the event you will receive a 100% refund, less a $5 admin charge. Otherwise, you will receive a 50% refund, as long as you notify us prior to the start of the event. This applies to the event fee only. If you're staying at CCBC, please check with them regarding their cancellation policy.

How much does it cost to stay at CCBC?

We have negotiated rates for Hot Seat Retreat participants. All rooms have been reserved for this event and will not be sold on other sites. See the registration page for prices.

I am flying to Los Angeles. What are my options to get to/from Palm Springs?

LAX is the largest airport in the region with the most options, and likely the best deals. You can also consider flying into ONT in Ontario, CA, which is the closest LA airport to Palm Springs. Flixbus currently offers three buses a day from Downtown LA and Hollywood. You can also rent a car, of course. The CCBC resort has free parking.

The host resort (CCBC) is sold out. Can I still participate?


CCBC Resort Hotel was selected for Hot Seat Retreat precisely because of the ability to host very large gatherings where only a small proportion of guests are staying on site.
