Pittsburgh H3 is going to raise some money for Girty’s Woods and have a kickass Halloween party while we do it! We’ll meet at the warehouse to have a beer and drop off potluck food. Then we’re out on for a spooky trail! After trail, we’ll come back to the warehouse for circle, food, beer, dancing, a costume contest, and more!
Cost is $25 before the event and $30 at the door. We’re asking that you sign up to bring something for the potluck:
Your 25 bucks gets you admission, beer, trail, and lots of fun, spooky surprises throughout the night. Bring cash for raffle tickets. We’ll have lots of fun baskets and prizes to auction off, plus a 50/50 drawing!
Stuff to bring: headlamp for trail, cash, a potluck offering, a thirst for beer, a love of all things Halloween!
There will be an area where you can change into a more elaborate costume if you don’t want to wear your whole costume on trail. (And by an area, I mean a sheet you can stand behind. We won’t have any vanities to use for applying makeup. It’s in a warehouse after all…)
Questions? Hit up Anal Eaze by emailing email@example.com or message her on fb. If she doesn’t know the answer to your question, she’ll peer into her crystal ball to find the information you seek.
