The official rules make this requirement for entry clear. Do remember that you have until May to make 30 new posts. Bethene has given you good advice on this - when you do get on line, pop right into Fun and Games. It's very easy to up your post count quickly there.

Gah Between Family drama and saving money for Hauntcon I'm not sure if I'll get this done in time. Still I like my idea that I came up with so I might do it any how and post pics even if I can't make the dead line.

Default Craiglist and Beyond...

Anyone have any good avenues of where to find Xmas stuff this time of year???? I got some luck posting on Craigslist that I need any broken or discarded stuff, but other than garage selling. So far Ive got a deer for 10 bucks, motor working just the head not moving on it. Im looking for a Santa head off anything. I dont want to give my idea away, but other than fellow haunters, everyone I know just thinks im nuts for being this obsessed with Halloween. Anyone ever seen the Family Guy where Stewie and Brian go to North Pole...thats where Im heading so far...

Our local Goodwill and Salvation Army Thrift Store carry a large selection of Christmas merchandise year round ... may want to give that a shot if you have these stores nearby.

I have a Question. What is the value of an old out of service cell phone? It was free with contract 5 years ago. I want to incorporate sound into my prop but even a cheap MP3 player is a fairly large percentage of the $20 budget. I have a few old phone laying around that are perfectly capable of playing an MP3 file just wondering if something like this would be whiten the rules and how much vale I should add to my total.
