Friday and Saturday, May 15 & 16, 2009
Hotel Oregon · McMinnville, OR

Has it been ten years already?

In celebration of our 10th anniversary, we’ll kick things off on Friday evening with a presentation by Kathleen Marden and Stanton Friedman, co-authors of Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience. The True Story of the World's First Documented Alien Abduction (2007). Marden is the niece of the Hills, who were the focus of one of the most well-known alien abductions in UFO history. Marden also served 10 years on the MUFON Board of Directors as the Director of Field Investigator Training. Stanton Friedman is an internationally recognized UFO expert who has published more than 80 UFO-related papers, appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs and provided written testimony to Congressional hearings.

The following Saturday morning, gather to hear about an amazing UFO sighting that brothers Kris and Marc Bales experienced during a camping trip in Northern Idaho in 2000. These eyewitnesses will relate exactly what they saw and heard in the sky that night!

And on Saturday afternoon, we are honored to host keynote speaker Linda Moulton Howe, reporter/editor for Earthfiles.comLinda M Howe and investigative reporter for “Coast to Coast AM with George Noory” and “Dreamland Online” with Whitley Strieber. Howe will give a fascination presentation on one family’s eyewitness account of a 1974 military encounter with a UFO in Albuquerque, NM.

We hope to see you in McMinnville! Buy your event tickets online – it’s $10 for each ticketed event; $15 for two events; or just $25 for all three ticketed events!
