MURDER MYSTERY MAYHEM AT THE SUNDANCE TRAIL RANCH IN RED FEATHER -- here's been a murder... We will travel back to 1881, to the little town of Roadkill, Wyoming. A number of you will then join Judge Waylon Payne for a weekend at his country lodge, next to the courthouse in the middle of town. You must discover which of you should hang, and why! Or maybe we will go back in time to January of 1936, and Sundance Trail will become an English country lodge. Sir Roger Watersdown, the wealthy owner of Watersdown Beverages, Ltd., will host several of you for a weekend party here at the ranch. But the party ends when murder is discovered, and you must determine who among you committed the dastardly crime. Come join us for a weekend of mayhem and murder! The games are designed to be played in five rounds of investigation, one round with each meal, starting with Friday supper. The final round of accusations and resolution will happen at Sunday's breakfast.

Bookings are limited to the first eight players or couples, and restricted to participants who are willing to take a whimsical view of blackmail, larceny, deceit, and murder. Those of you who are offended by such high-jinks as shady dealings, sordid affairs, and deceptive conduct should not book reservations for these weekends! Plan to ride our horses each morning after breakfast!

New Year's Eve
January 14th - 16th, 2005
February 18th - 20th, 2005
March 19th - 11th - 13th, 2005
