2013 Texas Bigfoot Conference
For Immediate Release January 12, 2013
The Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy (TBRC) is pleased to announce that the annual Texas Bigfoot Conference will be held at the Fort Worth Convention Center, 1201 Houston Street, Fort Worth, Texas, Saturday, March 16, 2013, from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM (CDT).
March 16, 2013. This is the 12th year for the conference, previously held in Jefferson and Tyler. The Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) scientific research organization, sponsors the event.
The conference will feature the Host and Co-Executive Producer of SyFy's Destination Truth, Josh Gates, as well as Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Associate Professor of Anatomy and Anthropology for Idaho State University, and author of “Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science.”
Other speakers include Bill Munns, Veteran Hollywood FX artist and author of "The Munns Report," a detailed analysis of the Patterson-Gimlin Film; Kathy Strain, Anthropologist and author of "Giants, Cannibals & Monsters: Bigfoot in Native Culture"; and Brian Brown, producer of The Bigfoot Information Project Podcast and The Bigfoot Show podcast, and member of the Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy's Board of Directors. In addition, the TBRC will present a recap of last year's seminal observational and quantitative field study, Operation Persistence.
General admission is $35, with various upgrade packages available. Discounts are available for students, educators and active military with proper ID.
The TBRC is comprised of volunteer investigators, scientists and naturalists, actively engaged in activities designed to test the hypothesis that a very rare form of unknown primate—commonly referred to as the wood ape, bigfoot, or the sasquatch—resides in very remote areas where there is abundant rainfall, dense forestation, and low human population densities. Even Henry Gee—senior editor for Nature magazine—concedes the plausibility of the wood ape’s existence given the incredible rate at which large secretive mammalian species continue to be documented even into the twenty-first century (http://is.gd/g36zW).
The TBRC is funded by membership dues, fundraisers, and the annual Texas Bigfoot Conference, in addition to donations and grants. The TBRC desires to enhance the credibility of wood ape research and facilitate a greater degree of acceptance by the scientific community and other segments of society of the likelihood of a biological basis behind the wood ape mystery.
