Joy and Brian Patterson, owners of SacFX (http://www.sacfx.com) and Calson Manor (http://www.calsonmanor.com) in California, were driving back from TW this week when their trailer was hit by a wind gust. Their vehicle flipped over twice and their truck was totaled; they're "banged up but ok." Last word I heard was that they were stranded in Wyoming.

Members of CalHaunts (http://calhaunts.com/) are taking donations to help the Pattersons out - the paypal addy is Callsonmanor@yahoo.com.

I don't have further info.

We wish them the best, that's a terrible thing to have happen!

Dr. Steampunk was wicked cool! Hopefully they make it home safe and sound.

Update: Brian and Joy are driving home in a rented truck. They should be back in CA on Monday.

They lost all the product they'd taken to TW because of this accident.

Robert Santos (ratfink63 @ yahoo.com) can field more questions about what exactly the Pattersons need.

I wasn't able to directly speak with them (they usually had lots of customers around) but did notice that they had some Very Nice products. I was really impressed with the radio controlled guy in the wheelchair animatronic. What really sucks is that they seemed to be a new company and this type of accident can be devastating, this was I believe their first Transworld and the products seemed really high end ( silicone animated head and hands on wheelchair guy).

I hope that they are able to return from this horrible accident and hopefully have insurance to cover any losses.

The entire crew at Tombstone Productions wishes them a speedy recovery.

It's good to hear that they are safe and on their way home now.

I hope that this did not hurt their business too bad.

Initial reports were a little exaggerated, apparently.

Bryan and Joy are safely at home and did not lose as much products as feared, which is awesome news!
