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.

On November 16, 2014 Ghostbusters NJ personnel and North Jersey Ghostbusters (Facebook) met up at Central/South Jersey’s premiere comic show, Jersey Shore Comic Book Show. As guests we were given not one, but three tables which we didn’t know about beforehand. Fortunately we had a decent amount of suits, gear, ectoplasm, (they were in jars) The Real Ghostbusters toys, and promotional material with us.
We were well received by the organizers and attendees of all ages. Since we didn’t wreck the town’s Elks Lodge we’ve been invited back for JSCBS upcoming show in March 2015. Continue reading
It won’t look anything like this.

On Sunday, November 16, 2014 Ghostbusters NJ and North Jersey Ghostbusters (Facebook) staff will be attending the Jersey Shore Comic Book Show, South Jersey’s not so large and only (we think) comic con. If getting an opportunity to meet us isn’t enough, the Avengers could be there. And Batman. A Man Of Steel too!
Oh alright, fans may be at JSCBS dressed as their favorite Marvel and DC characters. One character you won’t be able to miss because he’s real and wears red is Santa Clause. The real one, not that one time Bill dressed as Santa with a Proton Pack which Ghostbusters International milked for all it was worth. And they could still again if they have the file. 😀 Continue reading

Beginning tomorrow, August 29, 2014 Sony is showing GHOSTBUSTERS in theaters nationwide. Not just Ghostbusters, 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters, with previously deleted scenes which were included in the 1999 DVD release, 4x the high res, and hopefully 4x the fun! :O
The 30th Anniversary screenings will continue for the duration of the week. Good thing too, more screenings mean Ghostbusters NJ and North Jersey Ghostbusters personnel can attend multiple screenings in various Jersey locations.
Members from Ghostbusters NJ are going to a 7 PM screening at the Cinemark Theater 16, located in the Somerdale, NJ area.
Members from North Jersey Ghostbusters are going to the 7:10 screening at AMC Loews Monmouth Mall 15, located at the Monmouth Mall in the Red Bank, NJ area.
Members from Ghostbusters NJ and North Jersey Ghostbusters are going to a 7 PM screening at AMC Loews 14 in Wayne, NJ
It’s possible members from all Jersey Ghostbusters franchises will be at additional screenings. You might just see the Ghostbusters before you’re seeing the originals on the big screen!

We received a call from the Delaware Public Library who were about to host there first ever Comic con. Mr. John Hollyday said that a Blue English Police Box had appeared out of thin air in front of the library. Then he and his wife witnessed a Full torso vaporous apparition, that later reminded them of the Old Librarian, fly into this Police Box. Then the crazy started to happen.
We arrived and started to take PKE readings that lead us right to the Blue Box. The readings were off the scale. So I knew from them I had to blast this ghost out of that box. When I started to fire on it I see another stream next to me almost as if there was a 19th Century Ghostbuster standing next to me blasting the same blue box. That is when I realized this box was causing a space time rift. So I Told my new steampunk partner to increase the power output and aim for the light on the top of the box.
We then released this Box from the hold of the Ghost librarian trapped her and powered down. I look over and this Steampunk Ghostbuster tipped his hat to me and said “Good show old man” as he faded back to his time. The Blue police Box then started to make a strange sound and faded away as well. After this PKE reading returned to normal. I started to write up the bill for the Holyday’s to pay.
- We need to look out for this Blue Box. It could cause a space time rift that may bring around the 3rd coming of Gozer
“Uh, we’re not saying this mysterious blue box will, we would want to be…ya know cautious.” – Rich
- Find out who this Doctor is!
- Librarian looked just like what Dr. Stantz mentioned on his first encounter with a well known ghost in New York.

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.
