Build Week 2 – 2011

Monday, July 4th, 2011

help wanted

After a delayed start to the haunt season we find ourselves in the second week (last year it was build week 4 by now). The second week being a 3 day weekend would usually see a lot stuff getting started and progress made even if nothing gets finished. It was hot as heckity-heck this weekend. Patty made progress on her fishman, Kendra started to bulk out Mr. Electro, and I got started on Cauldron Creep 2.0 (a completely rebuilt and updated cauldron creep with better wiring, better mechanics, and better take down/break down characteristics).

We spent half of Sunday deciding what we can do with only three people this year. We cut 16 projects. 16 props, scares, and signs won’t get made. Halloween as it has come to be known has to be re-evaluated. Do we just build less? Do put off a lot projects and hope people show up later to help? Do we put on the same show as last year?

We have decided to see if we can recruit more help.
