This thread is so true! LOL
The general consensus seems to be when we say we're planning or starting to move or build: "Seriously? But Halloween isn't until October?!?!"
Just a couple days ago we had someone contact us about setting up a haunt for their charity and get it going for this year. They never called back. LOL
It happens multiple times a year, EACH year...
One funny call was a guy I actually knew a little. Everything I told him advice-wise he just acted like no problem.
I said "You'll need wood for walls, framing, bracing, etc" He said "The city is going to donate all of that. No problem!"
I said "You'll need insurance, lighting, props, etc" He said "They're doing that too. No problem!"
Well it was funny because 3 years prior I pitched the idea and the city never offered anything to me.
That was 4 years ago and I even offered him a cheap price on my former partner and I's haunt we were getting rid of and would help him move it and set it up for free...he never opened one! LOL
A lot of folks are all talk.
