I'm looking forward to it! We were planning on arriving Friday afternoon, but now I'm thinking about getting a room for Thursday night too! I'm looking forward to conducting the seminar! I've got a lot of information that I'm going to try and pack into the 1 and 1/2 hour time slot. I'm glad I'm scheduled for right before lunch so I can stay and have a question and answer session during the lunch break if we don't get to it before the end of the class. If you're coming to the "Recruiting and Managing Talent for Your Haunted Attraction" class, be ready to get a lot of information! ; ) See you all there!

Just wanted to add to the features already stated
I'll be offering a Water-Melon seminar on Sat and the first 20 through the door gets a free bottle of Water-Melon. I'll be offering some vendor demos on Sun.

W-M was developed back in 2002 as a latex alternative. Cuts and scars made in plaster molds can be applied with alcohol - no adhesive, no foundation, no removers , no allergies.
don't miss it.

Anyone planning on being there? If so anything in particular you would like to have me demo or bring?
As of now I am bringing W-Melon Appliances and Kits, Liquid W-M, Collodacolor, AGPC, Acrylic Blood, Acrylic Adhesive (like Pros Aide) and maybe some Foaming Gelatin.

Can I follow you up? I'd rather make the trip with you and Ashley than alone.
