Meet the Super Serious Sasquatch Chasers of America's Premier Bigfoot Conference
Thursday, June 15, 2017
The annual Ohio Bigfoot Conference – or OBC for short – was first held in 1989. It combines the intellectual exchange of an academic forum with the oddball bonhomie of a “Star Trek” convention. Salt Fork State Park – a 17,000-acre expanse of lush forests, lakes and hills in southeastern Ohio – plays host. (Thanks in part to the number of historic Bigfoot sightings in the park, Ohio ranks behind only the Pacific Northwest in reported U.S. Bigfoot activity. DeWerth thinks the creature left the Pacific Northwest for Ohio in a search for more privacy.)
The 2017 OBC was held on May 20, welcoming a thousand guests from all over the country, with the foremost draw a series of talks by luminaries of the Bigfoot fan community. VIP tickets, which cost $50 and reserve the bearer a seat in the conference room where presentations occur, sold out in four minutes.
Here, Bill Lancaster, an attendee of the 2017 OBC, was filming a documentary "Less about the squatch than the squatchers.”
