Saturday, March 8 The Ghostbusters of NJ had a successful bust (does that sound contradictory?). As you may have previously read, Three various groups of NJ Ghostbusters all came together for a day and night of Ghost-busting fun at Monster-Mania Con 27. We (GBNJ) were called in to Cherry Hill to bust a hotel full of Spooks, Specters, and Ghosts.
With a little help from Winston Zeddemore himself, the day was a success. Afterwards, GBNJ celebrated with a fantastic feast at Zinburger and then parted ways.
After dinner, only 3 Ghostbusters, Jeffe, Chris, and Myself remained at the con and went floor to floor taking PKE readings. The hotel checked out and was certified clean for the next 5 months. Their warranty conveniently expires in August, just in time for Monster-Mania Con 28. The investigation only found some Ecto-Plasmic residue on the wall.
Later in the night, the fire alarm went off. The hotel was evacuated and the local fire company came to the scene. Shortly after the firefighters arrived, Ecto-4 pulled up outside of the hotel to assist the firefighters with any paranormal activity associated with the evacuation. The crowed cheered GBNJ and Ecto-4! After about 10 minutes and a classic Ray Parker, Jr. song, the fire fighters left, Ecto-4 parked for the night and GBNJ continued to hang out at the hotel.
After a hard day of work, GBNJ decided to try to have a little bit of fun and, in our work uniforms, entered the sexiest costume contest. It was a close competition but GBNJ wasn’t sexy enough for the win. The night ended at the bar hanging out for a little while longer until Chris and Myself decided to bag it for the night.
