2019 Halloween Wrap Up

Recommended Posts

Wow, where do we start? Arrived on Wednesday afternoon. First one in our camp. Went for a couple rides. People were coming in at a pretty high rate for a Wednesday. Went for a night cruise to the N.P. The dunes changed quite a bit so we took the north route and took the trail. Didn't know where the new witches eyes were ect.

Thurs most people in our camp arrived including John and his son who we met here when he was looking for a camp. John and family were nice and were liked by all. Johns son, about 8, has a quad and is a really good rider.

By Friday I noticed A LOT of people were coming in and there were occasional lines waiting to get in at 2:00 am!

Saturday morning I looked around. Attendance was very good this year. 

Saturday night at comp... wow. A pretty good turnout would be an understatement. 

 

How did things go for you?

Your view on the turnout?

Dune conditions?

Favorite rides?

New Veterans Memorial? 

Mishaps?

Is anyone going to be out there this coming weekend 

This past weekend was the official holiday Halloween weekend for Dumont. You might see a bunch of people that chose to go on an "off weekend" this weekend.

For as many ppl that were at comp sat night, there didn't seem to be as much action on the hill....maybe a good thing. Sucks the wind had to come a little early, caught folks a bit off guard and trash was everywhere sunday.  Great trip overall for me....took forever to get here then poof, over in what seemed like an instant. Big shout out to the haunted house folks, seemed bigger this year too. We left Monday....minus the trash the dunes were amazing, so smooth. Should be a good weekend coming up for those that are going.

Wow, Dumont was a "hot spot"...literally!  Got out there Monday 10/21 to a cool 88*.  Nice to see so many people back at it, but "watch out for that guy" everywhere you go. Whoever erected the swingset...beautiful job! It was another point of interest to check out. Comp was busy Thurs, Fri, and Sat night especially. Lots of people in costume, and lots of rides decorated. Sunday, the mass exodus was insane. Took 3 1/2hrs to get from camp to the pay station! Total cluster.  W blew all day. Garbage everywhere. Dumont needs a little TLC..

I wonder what the attendance numbers were. I don't like to guess, but if I had to, I'd say near what the attendance was pre-downturn 2008. 

When it was time to leave, yes, total clusterfock! People around me were courteous though and we tried our best to take turns. 

Here's a few more pics. 

The last picture is our camp at the south pole during a group ride.

I hope you post some pics, mine aren't very good.

Man, what a weekend. This Halloween was a really good time.  I loved the warm weather. Nothing better than duning in shorts & a t-shirt! The dunes were great and everyone out there seemed to be very aware of each other playing it safe. We got a few good rips through the dunes, did some camp hoppin, and had plenty of partying at night. It was great seeing everyone. It felt like the good ole days running into so many friends. The new swingset seemed to be a big hit. Props to the guys that put it up. Speaking of props....way to go on the haunted house, guys! That was impressive. We went through twice and hung out for a bit over there. Comp was lit as usual with the dance party. :lol:
