WHAT DO **YOU** NEED TO BRING? ->

(Which is paid to the church - rental fee for space used.)

2.) Think of the PA Gathering of Haunters as a pot luck dinner.
(This allows us to keep costs way down!)
Bring one bowl of hot food and a 2 litre of soda.
(We have a *gigantic* kitchen for heating and re-heating of food,
and don't try to be sneaky and bring only a bag of chips,
try to be creative and create something different (and creepy looking...)

3.) YOUR home-made props that you wish to show off and instruct others how it was constructed.

BRING YOUR BEST HOMEMADE PROPS TO WIN PRIZES!!!!!

SO BRING YOUR BEST HOMEMADE PROPS TO WIN THE BEST DOORPRIZES!!!!!

4.) T-shirts (or other souvenirs) of your haunt if you want to 'swap' with other haunts for their shirts / souvenirs.
