The Oregon Sasquatch Symposium

The Oregon Sasquatch Symposium is scheduled for June 19th and 20th of this year. I am honored to have been invited to speak at this gathering alongside some of my favorite bigfooters in Bigfootland.

Also speaking at this event will be Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Autumn Williams, Kathy Moskowitz-Strain, Thom Powell, Ron Moorehead, Scott Nelson, and more! For a full list of participants and speakers, check out the official website.

For this event, you can buy either a "red" ticket or a "grey" ticket by clicking here. The red variety, which costs $40, gives you two days of preferred seating, a catered lunch, and a raffle ticket. The grey ticket, which costs only $20, bestows upon you two days of general admission and slightly-less preferred seating, though still not bad at all. (You can check out the seating charts here.)

In addition to the scheduled lectures, there will be ample opportunity to shoot the breeze with various bigfooters, many of whom you will recognize. (The bigfooters you don't recognize are equally intriguing, some of whom bring excellent opportunities for partnering up with on field research expeditions.) Bring copies of your favorite bigfoot books for the authors to sign. Take photographs with friends new and old. Listen to conversations about new research and projects. If you've never been to one of these social/informational gatherings, do yourself a favor and come! These are rare opportunities to talk 'squatch with aficionados from all over the country, if not the world. The networking is unparalleled, and nearly everyone is a lot of fun to hang out with.

and Craig Woolheater (TBRC) at last May's Yakima Bigfoot Round-Up

If you do attend, please come and say hello to me. Any friend of the 'squatch is a friend of mine.
