New Information on the Upcoming 25th-Annual Ohio Bigfoot Conference!!!!!!

Hey everyone,

Hope you all had a great Holiday season. With the Ohio Bigfoot Conference just three months away on April 13th, I'd like to pass along some information.

1- VIP tickets- We have sold over 75% of the available premium seating (center section, first eight rows). For those of you who bought, thank you so much. For those of you thinking about, better do it ASAP. I'm guessing they'll be gone in a few weeks at best. Once there gone, I'll let everyone know. General admission tickets will be sold for $15 at the door from 12 noon on Saturday. It will be standing room only for sure!

2- SPEAKER UPDATE- As of right now, we have Dr. Esteban Sarmiento, Loren Coleman, Thom Powell, Dr. Russ Brown (BFRO WV curator), and Mark Maisel (BFRO Ohio curator). There still might be one surprise speaker...if it happens it'll be HUGE!!! 

3- Lodging update- Our official Lodging partner is the Salt Fork State Park Lodge. We have secured excellent room rates for an affordable family weekend. Theses rates are good Friday and Saturday. Lodge room $75.00 per night, stay Sunday for $39.00. Cabin rates $95.00 per night, stay Sunday for $39.00. To book your room before we sell out call 740-435-9000 and enter 0 to be connected to an operator. Ask for the Ohio Bigfoot rate. 

4- Other planned events
Friday (12 noon to 3PM) will feature an advanced hike into some of the best Bigfoot area's of the area. This is for the more advanced and could get dirty..
* Friday evening (6-8PM) will be having a VIP Speaker Dinner at a designated off site location. All VIP's will get preferred seating. Non VIP's will put on a wait list and notified of the availability. Last year, everyone who wanted to attend had no problem getting a seat in our private room. 
* Later that night (9PM til 11PM) at the Lodgethere will be an informal meet and greet with the speakers.

*Sunday from 10:30 AM until 1 PM will be having our Ohio Bigfoot Festivalfeaturing multiple "how to" clinics hosted by a multitude of (TBA) experts in the field. A "free" cookout will be provided by our friends at the United States Bigfoot Research Association 

To finish up on Sunday, we will be hosting a family friendly hike in the generalSalt Fork area from 1 to 3 PM. 

5- SPONSORS- I've had numerous people inquire about sponsoring a speakers presentation. If you, your group, business, etc... would be interested in sponsoring a speakers presentation please contact me at for all the details. You'll receive a business card ad in our Conference program, name mentioned before and after presentation, and an advertisement (provided by you) on our website for a full year. As of right now, Loren Coleman is sponsored.

Other than that, stay warm, stay healthy, and stay thirsty..LOL!!! Take care and thanks!
