Greetings Haunters!
The RESULTS are in… listed below are the 2007 NATIONAL HAUNT INDUSTRY RECOGNITION AWARDS as awarded at the HAUNT PAVILION for the 12th National Haunt and Attraction Show produced by TransWorld Exhibits in Chicago this year.

TransWorld also gave out an unexpected 1st annual “Life-Time Achievement” Award to Cydney Neil of Rocky Point Haunted House in Utah.(Details below)

I salute everyone who participated and supported our events, either by entering, sponsoring, watching the daily competitions or simply viewing the exhibit entries. These competitions breathe LIFE into the show and help recognize the immense talent, creative ability and professionalism in our industry.

My wife and I and our crew were honored to once again develop, organize and host these activities for you. The fate of continuation of these activities is in limbo right now with TransWorld because of the move the Las Vegas in 2008. If you feel they were a beneficial part of the program we would appreciate your show of support in sending a letter to TransWorld via the www.hauntshow.com site under the contact bar and put it to the attention of Joe and Jen Thaler and Gregg Steliga.

A HUGE thank-you to this years Haunt Pavilion Sponsors:
· IAHA – International Association of Haunted Attractions
