Once again the fantastic Propmaster (a very nice and very under appreciated fellow) is getting ready to ask for Halloween videos from all us home haunters.

And the question came up, as it did last year, will there be awards?

At the last minute Jeff and I kept the Haunt X awards going (otherwise there would be no awards for 2007...well, that is not entirely true...there was a rumor of another award, but that is a another story - that will NOT be on this blog) because we hated to see there be nothing. And we were happy to do it. Will (Owner of the Haunt X convention)was great about supporting our efforts and Micheal at Ghost Ride gave us a good deal on the awards, we had the plaques printed and mailed them out.

Oh, yeah, and then there was the voting website...that was fun :)

With Haunt X gone (for now?) it does not make sense to keep the name. So we are going to call them what Paul calls the videos - or something like that.

We are again working with Ghost Ride for the awards, who is even making a custom runner up award. But voting is going to be different.

Letting the haunters vote for their favorte was not what we hoped. Almost everyone (and I mean almost everyone) voted for themselves. Which means the winner were usually the haunts that got two votes. Seriously, I mean I love my yard too, but if someone is (and many of them are) better than me...they get my vote.

So a new plan is in the works.....How do you pick the best yard haunts?
