Organizer Bobo Fay, Speaker Dr. John Bindernagel,
and Cliff on expedition.
Vancouver Island, BC 2007
Not only will data be presented, but unique first-hand perspectives on Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin will be given by their good Yakima cowboy friends that will be in attendance. There will be no reason to believe the slanderous writings of speculating authors of error-ridden books after speaking to people who actually hung out with Patterson and Gimlin. These men’s honesty cannot be questioned, if one knows (or knew) either of them.
Cliff talking ‘squatch with Dr. Meldrum and Bart Cutino
Having attended these sorts of functions before, I can say that hanging out and talking ‘squatch after the official event is over can be an extremely valuable opportunity to schmooze with some of the best in the field. People of all interest levels, from the moderately intrigued to the bizarrely obsessed (arguably my own level…), will certainly have a great time.
The crowd will be diverse and friendly. If you’d like to talk about the caloric needs of an ape that size, there will be folks to chew the fat with. If you’d like to talk about the time you saw an invisible bigfoot, there will be people there who would love to talk to you about it. If you are a party pooper and bring an excessively negative or combative attitude, Bobo will end up talking with you. He’s the security for the event.
Of course, this monumental event sold out months ago. People have been dropping from the role sheet occasionally, but there’s a waiting list for tickets. Look to Tom Yamarone’s great website for updates and information: http://www.bigfootsongs.com/.
I will, of course, write about this event and the adventures I have while attending. There’s even a chance that I might get into the field for a night. There are some very good bigfoot spots just a short drive outside of the Yakima area.
