Time becomes so precious when weather turns good, especially with spring and rain flows. With the end of the spring bigfoot conference season in the east we thought we would try to distill the three events into three sentences each. Here goes, in chronological order:
Ohio Bigfoot Conference – Overflowing the Salt Fork Lodge, the ball room and a large closed circuit room, people (who were understandably unhappy people) were turned away. The organizers is facing a tough decision for next year, stay at the lodge and limit attendance, or look elsewhere. Is big really better, well it is better than shrinkage and loss.
Chautauqua Bigfoot Festival – Adding Bob Gimlin to last year’s ho-hum lineup should result in a big increase in attendance, right? Not so. Organizer, who is a business dude, is pretty honest that the event needs to at least break even and is seriously thinking this may have been the second and last year for this event.
Creature Weekend – In their eyes they beefed up the speaker line-up, which should result in greater attendance, right? Not so, attendance was down more than 50%. It’s reported the lodge echoed with the sounds of….embarassment and cult chants of “this is great”.
