    Breaking News: TORNADO DAMAGE PROMPTS URGENT SALE OF HAUNT ITEMS!

    Ashmore Estates in Ashmore Illinois, suffered major damage from a tornado last night. It is owned by Scott, the “Spookmeister”, and Tanya Kelly. They lost the roof of the building, the clown maze, the concessions shed, and a camper. The family and animals are safe.

    EVERYTHING MUST GO: they have to *immediately* sell all costumes, props, software, animations, the solar powered marquis sign, and all other haunt paraphernalia. Please call Scott 217-512-9499. They have no power and no access to Facebook, so please contact us via phone as necessary.

    Ashmore Estates
    22645 E CR 1050N
    Ashmore, IL 61912

    From Scott and Tanya: We can't check FB easily right now, so if you're asking what you can do to help, this is what you can do:

    1. repost that we are selling all the props, costumes, and other haunt paraphernalia asap.

    2. Come over any time today, and bring your gloves, mud boots and muscles. We need to move a lot of things very quickly.

    3. Bring us cardboard cartons and boxes.

    Thank you so much. Our grief and shock over these losses is eased by how you, our community of friends and loves ones, are reaching out to us.



    Scott is a really good guy and I hope they will be able to rebuild. Keep them in your thoughts and if you can help out, please do so...

    It looks like it was bad all over. I have had some roof damage too but not this bad, Arx has some roof damage as well. Looks like these guys got the worst of it. Shane and it's glad everyone is ok!

    Scott just posted this on his facebook.

    "Hey everyone, we have no words to express our deep gratitude for all the help, prayers and well wishes today. You are all such a comfort to us during a really difficult time.

    Unfortunately, high winds are forecasted for tomorrow, which makes it unsafe to go forward with clean up. We'll post here letting you know if we can work Friday. Meantime, thanks again for everything."


    When I called and talked to him tonight he seemed that he was in good spirits despite all of this. If you guys need any props or anything please give him a call first. If your trying to get through to him please remember he still has no power, working off of two small generators, His whole town got hit pretty hard. So make sure you leave him a message. He is selling everything, Said he was still planning to go to Transworld.
    Jesus loves you, but everyone else thinks you're an asshole.

    I went out there to volunteer the day after. I didn't get there until early afternoon, but the winds were so strong that we didn't get a lot done before they decided it wasn't safe. Luckily, the props were mostly stored away from the section that collapsed. The building is just devastated. It was very sad.

    As of Wednesday, they said they were still planning on auctioning stuff off in April.
