Inaugural Southeastern Bigfoot Conference being held in Dahlonega

By Bryan Pirkle Reporter
DAHLONEGA - The first major bigfoot conference to ever be held in the south will take place at the R Ranch later this month.

Offically called the "Midnight Walker's Southeastern Bigfoot Conference" in honor of the event's organizer, a bigfoot researcher who uses the pseudonym Midnight Walker, the conference will feature a number of speakers and presentations focusing on the elusive Sasquatch.

The event, which takes place January 12-13, will feature panel discussions, recorded bigfoot conversations and encounters, and a host of other presentations.

Also being featured at the conference is R. Scott Nelson, a retired U.S. Navy crypto-linguist with over 30 years of foreign language and lingustic experience. Nelson, who has extensively researched tapes purported to contain the animals engaged in conversation with one another, will present his analysis and deconstruction of the language believed to be used by the creatures.

Tickets for the event are currently on sale, although organizers say they are in short supply as a result of the limited venue size and the eager response they have received from individuals planning to attend.
