October 18th: Monster Mash and TX Bigfoot

Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 11th, 2008

On Saturday, October 18, 2008, you get to pick from two great regional events.

One is in Texas, Craig Woolheater’s annual Texas Bigfoot conference. A late change has been that Peter Byrne has canceled and has been replaced by Jeff Meldrum.

If you are in the Northeast, you can drop by the Mass Monster Mash. (BTW, don’t worry, being loyal members of Red Sox Nation, the Red Sox play in the afternoon, if necessary and there will be frequent updates of the NL score that night, if a needed game is played.)

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
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.
