Welcome back staffers!
Today is the first day back from hiatus for the South Park staff, I'd like to give them all a fond hello and welcome back, I would also like to curse them all for taking all the good parking spots. Trey gave us a brief run down of what is going to happen these next few weeks for the eight new episodes we will be producing. So far, there is no news on any Holiday Episodes, or news on what is really going to happen for the second leg of the seventh season. According to Trey we will be doing a lot of shows on fart, poop, and people getting beaten up... sounds like Matt and Trey are back to their old tricks, I know I'm looking forward to the new season. As soon as I get any kind of information on the new episode, I will post it.

The 6th Annual Halloween Costume Contest
I've gotten a few emails from people asking me if it would be OK for them to use something other than the images we've provided as a base for their costume entries. If you feel that you can successfully pull it off go for it! You do not need to use the images provided, they're simply there to help you out. Also, I've been having some problems downloading the .bmp format. If it is at all possible please try to convert your image files into a .gif or .jpg. Those of you who sent in your entries as a .bmp may consider perhaps re-sending them since a lot of the files I've received with that extension have arrived corrupted. Keep in mind when your are making your entries, that you use all original images. Simply cutting a characters head off and pasting it on to a real persons body will not work, entries like that will be disqualified. If you can make the image look completely different than the original "real-life" picture, then that is acceptable. Once more, make sure all your art is original (which means made by you), or you will be a sad panda. Don't forget you all have an October 30th deadline to get them in so hurry! Please check out the contest page for more details.

Grey Dawn
The Senior Citizens of South Park rise up in protest when their driver's licenses are revoked in an all-new episode, entitled "Grey Dawn," premiering Wednesday, November 5th at 10:00 p.m.

After the seniors have mowed down more than a few farmer's markets, South Park residents no longer feel it's safe to be out in the streets. With their well being at stake, the boys decide to take action against the older generation. Unwilling to surrender their licenses, the elderly enlist the help of one of the most powerful organizations in Washington.
