The Ohio Bigfoot Conference is This Weekend!

The 2015 Ohio Bigfoot Conference is only a few days away! It will take place Friday thru Sunday, with the actual conference being on Saturday. The event is hosted by Ohio researcher Marc DeWerth. The speakers are listed below.

John Kirk III
John is a cryptozoologist from British Columbia, Canada. He is author of In the Domain of the Lake Monsters and co-author of Discovering Cadborosaurus. He is president of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club(BCSCC). In recent years he has become very involved with Bigfoot research.

Loren Coleman
Loren has been investigating cryptozoology since 1960 and is author of many books, including Cryptozoology A to Z(with Jerome Clark), Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in America, Monsters of Massachusetts, and many others, including some that will come out this year. He is director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Maine. 

Jim Sherman
Jim Sherman is a Bigfoot Field Reserachers Organization(BFRO) investigator from Michigan. He is also author of Facing the Big Hairy Monkey-Thing: Searching for Sasquatch in the Real World which will be available at the conference. 

Bob Gimlin
Bob Gimlin was with Roger Patterson on October 20, 1967 when he saw and filmed the Bigfoot Patty in Bluff Creek, California. Bob didn't talk about the encounter for many years but eventually started talking about it at events and such like the Ohio Bigfoot Conference. He was also a speaker there last year. Bob is not a liar!

David Floyd
David Floyd is a professor at Charleston State University. He has a natural interest in Bigfoot and stuff of the sort and researches the socio-religious and psycho-cultural aspects of the phenomenon.

This is a conference I've been waiting on for almost over a year. It's gonna be awesome! You can check out the schedule for the event on the website. 

Jim Sherman, one of the speakers, also wrote a Bigfoot book about his experience as a researcher called Facing The Big Hairy Monkey-Thing: Searching for Sasquatch in the Real World. 

The conference will also have TWO Bigfoot movies premiering. One is an actual movie, Something in the Woods, which will premier Friday, and the other is a documentary on an Ohio Bigfoot called Minerva Monster, which will premier Saturday.

There are also some really cool t-shirts for the event. They are no longer available online, so if you didn't get one, there will be a few at the conference. 

I can't wait for this conference! After it I will post a review and pictures just like I did with Creature Weekend
