We included the Columbia Haunt Tour in everything last year... so no hell hasn't froze over. Last year there was a lot of insults, criticisms, accusations, and what ever else flying around... this year we don't have that because what was new is no longer new and what was foreign is now accepted. Everyone seems to be on the same page this year, everyone seems to be working together which is all I ask.

Last year it wasn't that way this year it is... I want to promote all events.

We are even listing all the IAHA events... as long as everyone wants to work together and be friendly I don't have a problem with any event.

I wish all the events much success!

Larry
