GBNJ fans this post is to keep us all somewhat organized and entertained about where we’ll be spending our Saturdays during September 2015. We may or may not be at certain cons and other. I’ll give 5, maybe 10% to keep this post updated. Depending on the event, possibly even a new post. Ooh.

New Case Files Declassified


Written By Richard Roy, Organizer Of Case Files

If you’ve watched Ghostbusters NJ: The Series Episode 2 you’ve gotten a glimpse of what our case files (at least the printed kind) look like. That didn’t set well with state government. Until we re-organized (we did, didn’t we?) we weren’t allowed to publicly release (declassify) newer GBNJ case files.

I’m not exactly sure we still aren’t tied up in red tape. That didn’t stop Greg McHugh, District 3 Coordinator from writing two new case files and myself from publishing them. Continue reading

WilmFilm Festival Ghostbusters Screening Wrap Up


Written By Richard Roy, Former Movie Employee

On Saturday, April 25, 2015 Delaware Ghostbusters (Facebook) and Ghostbusters NJ personnel attended a screening of Ghostbusters at the Penn Cinema Riverfront, part of the annual Wilm Film Festival.

If you couldn’t make it to this screening, an event screening page with photos was added to the site this afternoon.

Amazicon April 2015 Wrap Up


Written By: Richard Roy, Knows Who Does My Taxes

The weekend after Tax Day Bill, Tom, and Ron rolled out in ECTO-3 under two hours for fun and most likely a case file at Amazicon, a ‘pop culture collector event.’ While the guys were having fun they got to test their skills (a reason we bring equipment) on taking care of a Class V.

Not only did GBNJ earn thousands, the guys earned an actual medal! Since the Clarion Hotel in Essington, Pennsylvania sustained only minor damage and litigation isn’t forthcoming, at least from this event we’ll most likely be invited back.
