Misc: Pre recorded questions from another audio recorder in attempt to translate our voices to a lesser frequency for the spirits to understand.
8:45-9:30pm The team lead its way to the Gym after some great converstation for the other teams attending this event. During this time the only interesting thing we had happen was the brand new batteries that were put in the Ovilus died. This usually occurs when a spirit attempts to use whatever energy is around to communicate with us this time it may have been some nice new batteries.
9:50-10:20pm John, Tim and Joe head to the Sally Port, where the new MEL ADD found electronic frequency change in the room at many times. This device is just like our regualar MEL meter except there is an antenna that has a current around it and if you place your hand near it an alarm will sound. This happened many times that night.
10:35-11:05pm This round was in the Magazine Room, the team smelt gun powder than it suddenly left. Now this could have been a residul smell or could have been paranormal there is no way of knowing. While sitting in the Magazine Room the team may have witnessed the rope in display in between the boxes and the standing area.
11:30-12:05am While investigating the jail, Tim felt like he was getting splashed in the face with water, also the team heard a knock at the window, there were a couple ladies, sitting on the bench below the window, when asked if the Ladies knocked or hit the window they said no.
12:45-1:40am During this time we investigated the School Admin Building. We belief, throught communication with our trifield meter we made contact with a little girl, druing this session we believe our ball that was siiting in the center of the room had slight movement but while reviewing the video we could hardly make out the movement if there was any.
