Myth or not, the Sasquatch is in the spotlight this weekend.
The Olympic Peninsula Sasquatch Symposium is set for 7-10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 25, at Studio Bob, 118 1/2 E. Front St., Port Angeles.
The symposium will present a new way of knowing about the Sasquatch and their interactions with humans, event organizers say.
Presenters include columnist/fishing guide Pat Neal, author/producer Ron Morehead, and peninsula resident Judy Carroll.
Neal is a columnist on the opinion page of The Peninsula Daily News, a Hoh River fishing guide and former historian for the Washington State Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation whose research concluded the Sasquatch have been here as long as humans have.
In his latest book, “WildLife Volume Three, Fisherman’s Holidays,” Neal describes the history of the Sasquatch on the Olympic Peninsula and the failed efforts to document, explain and exploit this wild and mysterious phenomenon.
Morehead, an adventurist, researcher, author and producer, has for decades conducted worldwide research into the Bigfoot/Sasquatch phenomenon. Morehead and Al Berry’s “Sierra Sounds” are the only Bigfoot recordings that have been scientifically studied, time-tested and accredited as being genuine, symposium organizes say. In his new book, “The Quantum Bigfoot,” Morehead combines decades of experience and hours of research into the realm of quantum physics as it could pertain to Bigfoot/Sasquatch.
Carroll will share her own experiences in communication and interaction with the Sasquatch that will provide a perspective of the Sasquatch personality.
Symposium attendees are invited to share their own experiences at an open mic portion of the event.
Admission is $10 per person. A no host bar will be available. For more information, call 360-683-9867.
