N'Ever Rest Cemetery and Haunted House

Despite the fact that our local newspaper (Antelope Valley Press) failed to put an announcement in the paper, N'Ever Rest Cemetery had a successful two day stand.

From dusk till 10:00PM both nights a total of 813 TOTs and Looky-Loos of all ages enjoyed the front yard display, the never sleeping haunted graveyard and the haunted house maze. The screams heard throughout the evening were an indication that everyone must have had the fun they wanted from our annual Halloween event.



This year's Haunt a BIG Success!

Two evenings approximately 4-1/2 hrs each. Sunday: 214 went through the Haunt. Not bad but not good either. Monday Halloween: 814 went through. AMAZING! Best ever number for one evening and making the two evening total the best ever.

Makes all the hard work worth the effort!

When the NEW 5V power supply is connected to the NEW motors  for Hi speed operation the motors turn correctly.

I connected the NEW 12V power…

Hi Ricard,
Steve is on for the flyer, so there will three of us on the flyer.
my plan is to take a normal 8.5 x 10 paper and divide it up into 3 columns, each with a haunt and it description. on the back will be a map to each haunt...anything else you think i should add?

It was great meeting you today at your haunt! I’m impressed with what you’re doing and your efforts to make Oct. 31st a great event for everyone to enjoy. Keep up the great work and thanks for showing me around. I picked up lots of great ideas and look forward to a dry run tour. ???

Yeah...give me some time. I'm right in the middle of trying to figure out a LOR for the first time and just found one of the channels stuck (guess I have to return one of the boxes). I have a couple of videos, too.
