Some of the most dangerous drugs aren't on the streets...

They are under your sink.

Welcome to the Annual Halloween Party Wiki: your one stop shop for photos/videos from previous parties, recipes of some foods served, tee shirt designs, and upcoming plans as well as a FAQ for folks that can't seem to figure out what exactly a multi-day party encompasses.

This page is publicly viewable, but not everything it links to is Public. Pages which begin with the name Public: are world-readable.

Also, remember the public nature of this page when editing it. Only add content which you are comfortable with the whole world seeing.

If there's something you'd like to know about or see here, let the host and hostess know.

Fundraising (a.k.a. How the heck are we paying for this venue?)

92% (as of 11/07/2019)

At 2013's party, the Hosts announced that, given the inability of everyone to stay at the same house for the length of the party, that it was time for us to move the party to a larger venue.

This does mean that we are asking for donations to help cover the rental cost. Based on some back-of-the-envelope calculations on what people have been paying to rent hotel rooms, rooms at bed-and-breakfasts, and houses, we think renting this location will end up being cheaper overall, AND allow us to all be under one roof for the duration of the party.

Please don’t think this is a pay-to-play situation. The Hosts have been very concerned about that idea for years because we acknowledge financial realities. If you can contribute to this cause, please do, but even if you can't, you should still come! If we have the same number of people attend this year’s party, and if people pay what they paid for hotels at previous H-Parties, we should be able to hit our financial goal.

One-time Payments

User:AdamF has volunteered to be in charge of the financials, and you can donate funds using paypal, cash, or check:

Words of Wisdom

Little did they know that the punch had already been jammed full of caffeine and modafinil.

'And ye harm none do what thou wilt'

Keep in mind, however, that there might be small children around some of the time. Along those lines:

  • There are various signs up helping with behavior choices.
  • No slipping minors candy, alcohol, drugs or even juice (without clearing it past parents).
  • When in doubt, ask the Hosts or a representative of the Hosts(Moarloks)

Three bowls do I mix for the Temperate:

  • One to health--which they empty first--the second to love and pleasure, the third to sleep. When this bowl is drunk up, wise guests go home.
  • The fourth bowl is ours no longer, but belongs to violence,
  • the fifth to uproar,
  • the sixth to drunken revel,
  • the seventh to black eyes,
  • the eighth is the policeman's,
  • the ninth belongs to biliousness,
  • and the tenth to madness and the hurling of furniture.

Shirts

I have it on good authority that shirts for hparty 2019 are undergoing rigorous destructive testing to arrive at the best design possible. It's not clear whether any Bothans died to bring us this information.

Public:Hparty Meal Prep Signups

The management would like to better arrange the food situation for the party. The set up will be the following. If you are interested in fixing a particular dish or even a whole meal, you sign up for a particular time slot. We will need main chefs for meals and helper bees. No one person will be allowed to be a main chef for more than one full day of cooking, or more than three meals. When you sign up for service, you can declare a bunch of dishes you choose to cook, or you can wing it with local produce you find and choose to use. So sign up and give as much info or as little as you choose. If you plan to cook certain dishes, food may be purchased ahead of time if you tell us what you'll need.
