It's November 1 and I was thinking I might like to start my own event for 2007. I started out a yard haunter and have since gotten 9 years experience building, acting, and assisting in the running of a hunted house. I have done everything from calling advertisers, to training actors, to sweeping up at the end of the night.

What advice can you guys give me?

What are the biggest misconceptions I probably have about running a haunted house?

Is IAHA worth belonging to? What will they do for me? I know its not a lot of cash to belong but what do I get with that?

MUCH Thanks, in advance.
