Are you a Sasquatch fanatic or just curious about what research has been collected by the pros? The annual Sasquatch Summit conference on November 16-18 at the grand Quinault Beach Resort and Casino (QBRC) in Ocean Shores is an excellent place to hear some noteworthy speakers and inquire about any of those big questions surrounding this curious creature.
The Pacific Northwest is said to be the Bigfoot capital of the world with stories and sightings going back for over 100 years. As such, it’s only befitting that the conference takes place here.
Join hundreds of other enthusiasts for this exciting event full of memories and keen insights. Sasquatch Summit is more popular every year, so make sure to snag a ticket for the weekend at only $35 per person. Or make it a beach getaway and book a two night stay (beginning at $289) at the QBRC, or reserve a room at the Quinault Sweet Grass Hotel and receive two complimentary Sasquatch Summit tickets and two T-shirts. Tickets are also available at the door during the event.
For a chance to spend some one-on-one time with the experts, for $100, guests can purchase tickets to private workshops on Sunday in addition to conference entry. Three workshops will be presented by Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Joe Hauser and John Pickering. They offer unique observations and information about everything surrounding the topic of Bigfoot.
Guests have the opportunity to hear all kinds of speakers and witness testimonies, see casts, and peruse themed vendors.
The conference wouldn’t be complete without some good music. Former Nashville staff songwriter, Lenny Green, who currently writes and performs music about Bigfoot, will perform.
In addition to a meet and greet with researchers on Friday, people can also listen to David Ellis from the Olympic Project. He’ll show audio clips that have been recorded and collected from various locations. He’ll also discuss how to know which clips are real and which are not. There’s also an open forum on Friday where conference goers are invited to talk about their own Bigfoot experiences.
Coasting into Saturday, Quinault Indian Nation‘s Butch Pope, a tribal elder, will bless the conference and then speak about his family’s encounters with “C’iatqo.” After Pope’s blessing, the day is all set to go with top-notch and versatile speakers including:
The Olympic Project is a team of people ranging from trackers to biologists that work with a commitment to proving the undeniable existence of Bigfoot. They use formal and professional techniques like habitat studies, DNA analysis and video cameras to collect information. And they work to make sure everything that they do is non-invasive to any likely Sasquatch habitats.
Riolo is open about his skepticism when it comes to Sasquatch research and was a co-star in the Ten Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty TV show.
Gimlin was right there when one of the most well known Bigfoot clips was taken. He has an intriguing story to share.
For more than 60 years, Cantrall has researched Sasquatch, doing his own investigations. He’s also an accomplished writer with 10 books on the topic and plans to continue writing more. Visit his website for more information.
Davies has gone all around the world looking for evidence of creatures that are not yet discovered. He has appeared on television many times, including as a guest on the History Channel and National Geographic. He has much to tell about his discoveries.
With over 30 years of experience in the field, Hauser is a wildlife biologist and an environmental consultant. He had his initial Bigfoot encounter in 1983 while gold mining in the California mountains. He then continued to have unusual experiences elsewhere. Hauser is former curator of the Bigfoot Research Organization and has completed many investigative reports on encounters, learning through every experience. He now lives with his wife close to Glacier National Park in Montana. Their property near the river is used by a family of Bigfoot, seasonally.
For many years, Meldrum has been a professor of anatomy and anthropology at Idaho State University, and has done professional research on the evolution of hominin bipedalism. With a large collection of more than 300 footprint casts, he continues his field research and has been open about discussing his findings. He has also authored a book called “Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science” and published two field guides on relict hominoids and Sasquatch.
A former curator for the Bigfoot Research Organization, Powell’s experiences and encounters will be fun to hear and provide lots of helpful information.
