You know you grew up in the 80s if you ever watched "Fraggle Rock" or "Pound Puppies" or got super-excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class. A few Swindoll, Janzen, Hawk & Loyd, LLC staff members, family and friends had a flashback to the 80s on Saturday when they attended "Who Killed the 80s: A Totally Tubular Radically Gnarly 80s Murder Mystery" that took place in the Kansas Underground Salt Museum in Hutchinson, KS.

The show was an interactive, dinner theater, murder mystery that time warped all the guests back to the beloved decade we know as the "The 80s." SJHL had a table with those in attendance being Kyle Hawk and his wife Tammy, Kala Bruce and her husband Jason, Johnna Vosseller and her husband Dustin, and Jaymie Rothrock and her husband Jonathan. An old SJHL friend, Rick Tuxhorn, was also in attendance with his wife Barb as well as some friends Kevin and Jessica Sander. More information about the show below the photos.

The show was put on by Without A Net Entertainment. They are a traveling murder mystery company that combine scripted material, audience interaction, topical improvisation, and comedy to create and solve the evening's crime in a memorable dinner theater experience. This is not the first time Without a Net has been to Hutchinson. Last August they performed a performance called "Clue-less" that many SJHL staff members also attended. It is a fun way to spend some quality time with co-workers. Learn more about the Kansas Underground Salt Museum's special events at
