    Could you give us a overview of what they do? And as a person with some input, what do you like about it and don't like about it (the way the haunt forum does it)?

    Last year I had 23 blow olds in my display but only paid for 3 my nativity. All the rest I picked up free at yard sales for a dollar or at the curb waiting to get picked up by the trash man. Does this qualify as low budget? Lol

    I like the hauntforum $25 prop challenge too and would love to see something like that here.

    I am always impressed with the amount of creativity some people possess. In fact some of my best ideas come from other peoples ideas. lol.

    Basically you get a low monetary budget and have to create an original prop within that budget. I can not think of anything I dislike about the way haunt forum runs the contest, or used to anyway. I have not followed haunt forum for a few years now as my time is so limited these days.
    Thanks,
    Brian, your friendly site Admin.
