Like the poster, "Concerned" I too wonder why the controversial and racist John Ventre is on the panel. And why would fellow panelists want to be associated with him....

Is there an explanation why John Ventre is speaking at this event?

I really enjoyed the conference and learned so much from the speakers. I was so happy to be able to purchase all the books and souvenirs to bring back.It also gave me a chance to get back to Denver after 50 years. Hope to get back again soon to another conference

I really enjoyed the fall conference. It was a great variety of speakers, many subjects and points of view. I am looking forward to the conference in May! Thank you for doing this!

Where do I even begin? I have never been to a conference of this variety before and had no idea what to expect. Going into this with an open mind and heart was the best strategy for me I think because, holy cow! Information overload! The variety of strange and baffling topics were a welcomed change to rhythmic pattern of everyday life (although the wild people are a common topic of conversation in hour household). I don’t think things can ever be as they were. I want to thank all the speakers for illuminating some of the curious wonders of the physical ( and maybe not so physical) realm we reside in right now. Your seminars and presentations were awe inspiring to say the least. You have provided a fertile launch pad for many of us to prepare for our own exploration. Thank you for the work that you do and welcoming the ‘newcomers‘ into this fascinating domain. You are teaching the world to re-learn how to access and accept the human experience. I hope to see you all again<3

What a great conference! It was great to finally meet researchers that I have followed and everyone was very down to earth and approachable. My girlfriend who was a newbee also enjoyed the conference. The one thing I would have enjoyed hearing is from the audience who have had experiences and their stories. I will definitely attend the next one if there is on!

We enjoyed all three days, plus dinner. Each of the speakers were informative and interesting. It went very smoothly, later when we got to meet the speakers and talk to them a little bit, we found that they were all very nice and outgoing. We learned a lot from the speakers. The MC, Jim, did a great job with intro's and keeping things moving.
The seats were very hard-something that is beyond your control we realize. The only suggestion for improvement is a 5 minute relief break after each speaker, and then when everyone is seated, do the drawings.
Again, it was a very well presented conference and we hope that it will continue in the future. It was definitely worth the money, and we are glad that we attended.

The conference was very rewarding. Each and every speaker had a riveting tale to tell--sometimes moving, sometimes humorous, and all truly amazing.

I was impressed by the field researchers’ diligence. The quality of field research presented should be emerging into mainstream scientific discourse,one would think, especially in light of DNA and other evidence collected. The stories about "gifting" Bigfoots were fascinating.

I will remember Ruben Uriarte's interview footage for a long time.

I am grateful that speakers were quite gracious and generous with their time in talking with attendees.

Maybe there needed to be a special session on how Les Stroud got over the fear of grizzlies (?) out there all alone with just that camera--really still curious about this...

I really enjoyed the conference...especially the basic, hands-on advice on looking for Sasquatch...and dealing with him or her, if they choose to reveal themselves!

The linguistics lecture, plus Sybilla's and Harvey's drawings and stories, were a special treat.

Anything that affirms this creature's reality is refreshing. I'm not so big on what Thom called "wacky shit" or "woo" stuff, particularly if we're just talking 'feelings' versus evidence. (I am willing to hear it out, however, just in case.) Thom's sense of humor about it all was refreshing.
Do remember, though, guys, that things seasoned Bigfoot researchers have heard about a million times (like the Erickson Project) may be totally new to your audience. I'm sure I was not the only person sitting there who hadn't heard about it. (I actually prided myself on being knowledgeable about BF before this...but am changing my tune rapidly.) Photos, even of basic environments, are wonderful. Be sure, however, when you mention a sighting, to actually describe the Sasquatches in question. I was left trying to guess what a lot of them, particularly those mentioned in today's (Sunday's) lectures, actually looked like.... except for 'big.' Thanks for all your hard work; I'm looking forward to the next one already.

This message came from Derek Hill:

"I'd like to thank you guys for putting on this pretty amazing conference. I'm a skeptic, not much into paranormal, and a biologist by training. Never been to any conference before regarding anything in these matters. My sister and I attended all day Saturday and we both were fascinated and blown away by the excellent talks and the overall awesome experience. So nice to have amazing speakers in a nice low key setting. Not a bunch of hyped up crap, no sales pitches, no crazy folk. Just a good crowd of respectful people interested in some fascinating stuff. I can only imagine if this becomes an annual event it will get bigger and more commercialized, but I hope not. We had a great time and everyone involved in this conference did a top notch job. I'm a business manager and we do events, and I cannot say anything but greatness about this Saturday at your event. Thank you very much for the quality guest speakers and excellent event all around. Well worth the money paid."

Thank you for the feedback!
