What’s in store for human group discussions involving the big hairy bipeds during 2008? Here are some announced gatherings:
Don Keating’s 20th Annual Bigfoot Conference / EXPO will occur on Saturday, May 17, 2008, from 4 p.m. to about 10 p.m. The location is the Salt Fork State Park Lodge, just off of US Route 22, in Guernsey County, Ohio. The speakers are Igor Bourtsev, Jeff Meldrum, Eric Altman and MK Davis.
Eric Altman’s Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society will hold its conference on September 27, 2008 from noon to 8:00 pm, in the banquet hall located above Pitzers’ Townhouse Restaurant, Jeannette Pennsylvania. Speakers are Diane Stocking, Steve Kulls, Bob Chance, Billy Willard, Tom L, Joe Biello, and Eric Altman.
The Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy (TBRC), hosted by Craig Woolheater, will present the 2008 Texas Bigfoot Conference in Jefferson, Texas, on October 18, 2008. Two speakers have been confirmed: Dr. John Bindernagel and Dr. Henner Fahrenbach.
If you know of other forthcoming large gatherings and meetings, please share the dates and details!
BTW, as evidenced by the names of these organizations and their conferences, I have to observe: So much for the hopes of Grover Krantz that the word “Sasquatch“ would replace “Bigfoot“ in the titles and terminology in use for discussing the hairy unknown hominoids.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
