Though the event is sold out there may be a few spots opening up if you are on the waiting list (hey, Bigfoot Books got a ticket!). Here is the updated flyer, click image to enlarge. John Green and Rick Noll will sadly not be attending as previously planned, but new speakers have been added. Bobo assures me there will be some startling revelations unveiled at this conference. It will be documented by Hancock House and, apparently, National Geographic. Bob Gimlin will be there.
From Tom Yamarone, here are some of the details. Address has been excluded as "walk-up" attendance is being prohibited (or highly discouraged).
Examination of the Patterson-Gimlin Film
Presentation of Current Evidence of the Sasquatch
Presentations by:
Dr. John Bindernagel
Dr. Jeff Meldrum
Kathy Moskowitz Strain
Christopher L. Murphy
Dmitry Pirkulov (representing Dmitri Bayanov and Russian Hominology research)
A new analysis of the P-G film by Bill Munns
Also new talk added: Scott Nelson, cryto-linguist examines the Sierra Sounds

The event will include a catered Tribute Dinner and entertainment in a beautiful ranch setting. There will be a gathering for a pot-luck dinner and 2 presentations on Friday evening. Saturday will begin with a meet & greet period, a $5 hamburger/hot-dog lunch available. Presentations begin at 12:30 pm. Tribute Dinner scheduled for 6:15 pm. Tickets: $40/general admission, $60 reserved seating, $80 VIP tickets (ONLY IF available). For information, contact: James Bobo Fay, Paul Graves (509) 665-8645, Tom Yamarone (925) 734-0799. Or email or
[I think Tom is the one in charge of the waiting list.]
