The House of Horror

This year got off to quite a start. So far we have over 500 victims through in three days. I would like to thank me for putting together such great publicity.

Seriously, there has been a LOT of work put in to this year’s House. About 6 core guys helped with the building, Kevin came up with the theme “Heartland Horrors”, several past presidents agreed to design/run the maze this year, the firefighters are running our attraction outside in the yard, and I did put out a little bit of press. Everything came together into an amazing House that has already received great overheard comments and had the door ripped off the hinges because of the scare factor.

Concessions seem to be going over much better this year as well. About half of everyone who comes is purchasing something. That’s not a bad ratio considering that we are serving a very limited variety of products. I do think that we WAY over-ordered our soda supply, but perhaps that will pick up since we are only 1/3 of the way through our run.

We are at or above our budget v income, so we should have easy sailing from here out. Plus there will be no school in the county Thursday and Friday of this week. That should help attendance quite a bit.
