Also, if you have a business or know someone who does, then please do list the business/class/event FOR FREE in our local listings.

All of those who upload a listing/event/class to their local , and post a link back to it on this thread, will have their names put into a witches hat and the winner/s will receive a fabulous prize from the goody cupboard here at MNHQ.

Happy Halloween thlgrin and thanks in advance.
