Original Texas Bigfoot Gig - Reviewed

This past weekend I was at the annual Original Texas Bigfoot Conference, a cool event which I have reviewed for Mysterious Universe. You can find the article here, and below is an extract and a few photos from the gig:

"On Friday, October 9 I traveled from my Arlington, Texas home to the town of Jefferson for the annual Original Texas Bigfoot Conference. It’s an event organized by Craig Woolheater of Cryptomundo. Like me, most of the other speakers (Ken Gerhard, Lyle Blackburn, John Kirk, and Chester Moore) arrived on the Friday afternoon. A couple of hours later we strolled down to a nearby restaurant, along with around 50 or 60 conference attendees. As well as chowing down on some fine Mexican food, me and Ken gave an approximately thirty-minutes-long overview on the matter of the strange creatures of Texas.

"That included the legendary, near-Fortean 'Goat-Man' that provoked havoc, hysteria and excitement in the summer of 1969. It was a large, rampaging humanoid which was seen late at night in and around the woods of Lake Worth, Texas. The creature was variously described as scaly, cloven-hoofed, and even with horns on its head – hence the name. As we noted, however, since those long gone days, suggestions have been made that the beast was a wandering, white Bigfoot. An equally odd scenario!"
