Murder Mystery Weekend – Gibson Inn

We learned a lesson on the drive to Apalachicola Florida for our Murder Mystery Weekend, even in February HWY 98 has stop and go traffic.  Forty amateur sleuths gathered at the Gibson Inn to solve a murder in Mayberry USA.  Friday night before the murder we gathered for a salute to Mayberry’s Founder’s Day, Carol Mills demonstrated her acting chops as Mrs. Mayberry.  Encouraged to dress as well known characters from Mayberry, our sleuths competed for prizes. Diane Kalivoda won the women’s prize as Aunt Bea and Carol was runner-up as Clara. The group finished the evening with a parade only to discover the murder. Saturday we roamed the city’s many shops looking for puzzle pieces that gave a critical final clue.  Terry and Carol Mills successfully solved the murder while Dave and Lindy Kirkpatrick and Jim and Diane Kalivoda missed it by a mile.
