Ghost Ghouls and Goblins event announcement
- Come one, come all for Ghost, Ghouls and Goblins has returned to New Jersey! The event announcement will follow, but first, a couple of important announcements:
1. no pets are allowed on site, I checked sorry, but it's their rule.
2. This year we were able to procure a cabin with 20 bunks in it. There is still some space in the cabin, but, despite our best efforts, THERE ARE NO MATTRESSES FOR THE BUNKS! If you're staying in the cabin, please bring some kind of padding with you.
3. the night shoot will start Friday after dark. sign-up for the Saturday shoot will begin at 10 AM. Archers will only be competing against others of equal level.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact myself or Ramos.
