Here's something that may be of interest: a website has just been set up to promote the Atoka, Oklahoma-based Boggy Depot Bigfoot Conference which I'll be speaking at on the weekend of October 22 and 23.
As the organizers note:
"This 2 day conference is different than some of the other conferences you may have attended in the past. First and foremost the goal of the conference is to raise money for the Children's Hospital Foundation and the Children's Miracle Network! The Children's Miracle Network has been around since 1983 and creates miracles by funding medical care, research and education that saves and improves the lives of 17 million children each year. By helping the Boggy Depot Conference you can help create miracles for children everywhere. We know the whole family will have a great time because we have something for everyone! See you soon!
"For the Bigfoot enthusiast we will have the 5k Bigfoot Charity Run/Walk and Bigfoot Movies in the Park, not to mention the conference itself. For Speakers we will have, Scott Nelson, a former Navy cryptolinguist sharing his findings on a potential Sasquatch Language, D.W . Lee and Randy Harrington from the M.A.B.R.C., Robert Swain writer/artist of Laughsquatchand famed cryptozoologists/authors Ken Gerhard and Nick Redfern.
"For the Ghost Hunter and Paranormal crowd, author/blogger Cullen Hudson will be on hand to speak about some of the cases he has investigated in Oklahoma.
"For the Indian and History Buffs the Choctaw Nation will be on hand perform a few of their ceremonial dances for the public to observe.
"For the car buffs and gearheads out there, the Sick Reality Car Club will be there to show off some of the coolest cars ever assembled. From rat rods to muscle cars to 4x4's there is sure to be a car or truck there that you will fall in love with.
"Don't forget about all of our great vendors that will be there like Spaztic Designz Airbrush Facepainting, Silpada Designs Silver Jewlery, Maui- Wowi Hawaiian Smoothies & Coffee, Don Juan Rosted Corn, Jam & Jummpers Moonwalks and Concessions, Adrianna's Fashions, BryCob Scentsy Candles, Something Beautiful by Moriah, The Nut House - Rosted/ Candy coated Nuts, Brian's Sasquatch Shirts and many more!
