Witch recruitment in Wilson Hall - today
Are you a fan of black cats and pointy hats? Is your cauldron almost always filled with brew? Does your face have a greenish tinge that you can't explain? If you've answered yes to any of these questions, witchcraft might be in your future. Stop by the Witch Recruitment table in Wilson Hall today between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to talk with a guild-certified witch and pick up complimentary pamphlets and potions.

Pumpkin trebuchet at Village soccer field - tonight
Local high-school students are bringing a handmade, house-sized trebuchet to the Village soccer field. They will be launching flaming pumpkins for two dollars apiece from 5 to 9 p.m. Not-on-fire pumpkin launching is free. Remember to bring your camera and wear flame-retardant clothing.

Tomorrow, Fermilab's bison are offering 10-minute rides. To reserve a spot, contact head bison, I-Am-Not-A-Buffalo Bill at bison@fnal.gov.

Zombies on Interpretive Trail until Nov. 3
Members of the laboratory community have reported sightings of a gang of the undead on the Margaret Pearson Interpretive Trail. Animal Control will remove the zombies on Nov. 3. If you plan to walk the trail before then, bring a frying pan and wear a helmet. Better yet, don't plan to walk the trail before then.

Free Candy in IARC parking lot until it's all eaten
We're not sure where it came from, but there's 600 pounds of assorted candy in the IARC parking lot. It's all unwrapped and omits a slightly dubious odor, but Mother always said sugar doesn't go bad. So go nuts! Please keep dogs away from the chocolate.
