Don’t want to be anything other than a Raven? The cast of One Tree Hill doesn’t either – even though more than four years have passed since the series ended.

Hilarie Burton, Chad Michael Murray, Bethany Joy Lenz and more of the original stars of the popular drama gathered together over the weekend for the first-ever insideOTH convention in fictional Tree Hill – Wilmington, North Carolina.

In addition to a weekend filled with Q&As and meet-and-greets, the cast also had fun reliving their time as dysfunctional high schoolers, with Michael Copon (who portrayed brief Tree Hill transplant Felix) even leading a Dare Night redux.

Copon, aided by Burton and Antwon Tanner (Skills), even led the group in a karaoke sing-along to the show’s Gavin DeGraw theme song, “I Don’t Want To Be.”

Only a few members of the original gang were missing – notably Sophia Bush (Brooke Davis), James Lafferty (Nathan Scott) and Stephen Colletti (Chase Adams) – with even Paul Johansson (reformed villain Dan Scott) joining in on the fun.

Murray let one fan walk home with a special, handcrafted treat: a hand-painted canvas featuring the Ravens logo.

“Spent the last 6 hours painting this for the silent auction,” he wrote, adding, “I hope Someone will have this hanging in their bedroom Monday night and enjoy the heck out of it!”

The gang is set to reunite, again, this fall for a Chicago convention. Lafferty, as well as country singer Jana Kramer (Alex Dupre) are set to join.
