Stacia always goes to great lengths to make birthdays special for youth group members, family members...and this year Allie wanted to plan a special day for Stacia. Stacia is turning 17 on the 16th. We'll have a family celebration on the 20th. BUT....Allie planned a scavenger hunt, she then created a murder mystery plot line, she and Mike spent a bit of time working on characters and how it could all work....character sketches were sent out, pizza was ordered, brownies made...and we had a party.
Deanna Bright - a young aspiring photographer who's on the hunt for the perfect picture of a moose. She stumbled across the tour by accident but is happy to be there. Keeps a positive attitude even after the murder.
Left to Right: Charles Lewis - a proper English gentleman on his honeymoon. He's rather suspicious of the group as a whole.
Penni Rosewood - a young woman on her honeymoon. Happy and optimistic and thoroughly enjoying the scenery. After the murder, her sole focus is getting her honeymoon back on track.
Deanna - and on the right - Lila Fairview - a young architect just out of college traveling the world exploring old buildings. She suspects Billy Murphy from the beginning.
Ruby reveals she was faking her death, Billy walked in and thought Wiley had shot her - so he shot Wiley, leaving them both outside the visitor center. He was shocked to find Ruby had not been shot...Wiley was quite shot.
With the murder solved we were free to resurrect Wiley, drop our characters and go on to pizza, brownies (yes, with a special ingredient) and ice cream.
This was a fun afternoon. Now that we know a bit of the problems which arose, we could do this again and have it go even smoother.
