Hall O Ween Results ( Posted Sat October 28 )

21 souls braved the woods tonight in an effort to make it safely to the finish without having their control cards "vamped". Screams, laughter, footsteps, and rattling chains could be heard in the otherwise silent woods of Centreville Community Park. All returned... some slogging water, others carrying headless pumpkin people. Thanks to all for attending, and to Pam, Ed and Zach for picking up controls. Results follow.
