Lawyers "Moonlight"  MAZE & PUMPKIN CANNON at NIGHT!  We will be having a private bonfire so feel free to bring your camping chair and materials for making smores.  If you would like to give me a couple of bucks to help offset the cost of the bonfire it would be appreciated :)  Paypal is

This year the maze is comprised of 5 mazes that are pieced together with 24 checkpoints.  Each checkpoint has a hole punch that you can use to punch your map and so that you can prove you made it to each station.  This year, the maze is a half a mile longer than it was last year and 1.1 miles longer than it was 2 years ago :)  

If people are interested, we will divide into teams of four and "race" to see who can complete the maze first without cutting through the corn or trampling little kids into the mud.  Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams!

 So come out and take part in the maze or the pumpkin and apple cannon - double-barrel apple cannon, no less - or, if you're feeling really adventurous, you can do both. Make sure that you dress comfortably, sturdy shoes or boots are recommended, and since we are going at night you need a flashlight.

Adult and children ages 6-and up: $7.00 Children 5 and under free PUMPKIN CANNON 3 shots for $10 CORN/Apple CANNON 6 shots for $5 Food concessions available sodas, cider, hot choc., hot dogs, fries, pit beef, chips etc... Please bring cash because they do not accept credit cards as well as a flashlight. It can also get a little muddy so a change of shoes is probably a good idea.
