The Nightmare before Skipton, A Halloween event for our caravanning group.

I (we) think enough time as now passed since we left our caravanning group`s committee for us to “do” another event for the group. So despite everything I said about wanting to only be “Just a punter” I (we) have come out of Event Management retirement. All things to one side the campers loved our events and to be honest we liked doing them.  So…..
I present “The Nightmare before Skipton” *
To be held at Lockside Caravan Park, Ripon, UK over the Halloween weekend. The Program will include

Rap-up the Mummy Game:
Rap your partner in toilet roll till the music stops, whoever is most rapped wins
DJ music sets
That will be me, seeing what I can “Get away with” playing to a very “Old Guard” and mundane crowd
  Halloween themed quizzes

    1. I am the only one in the group with past experience in catering and music promotion, so I guess I had the edge. I will do an after event blog and include a set list.

  2. POST SCRIPT: When we got there, the field was waterlogged and un- campable so the weekend was cancelled. We are going to `do` the party in 2 weeks` time at Skipton
