Update 6/2/2009: The Green Park Inn is currently closed. I already have a very exciting alternative in place but I have to work out a few details to make sure it is both hunt-friendly and affordable, in order to preserve the type of community we're building. We may move the date slightly but it will remain in November. We already have lined up three exciting hunt locations, with several others under negotiation, as well as a great rate on a hotel (hunts are off-site but the core locations are within easy walking distance of each other).

Please postpone registering until I finalize details, which I hope will be by mid-June. If you've already paid, I will grant an immediate full refund if you wish. I expect the conference price to remain similar but I'm unsure about the room situation at this point. In the meantime, don't hesitate to ask questions.

The 2009 event at the Green Park Inn is now canceled--the owner has auctioned off the furniture and I don't see any hope of having new ownership in place anytime soon. I hope to return there one day but for now the spirits can rest in peace.


This year's theme: "Science, Faith, and the Supernatural"

The conference is hosted by Appalachian author, supernaturalist, and folklorist
Scott Nicholson, with presentations and ghost hunts by Paranormal Scene Investigators, Deborah Leblanc, Jonathan Watts, Jeremiah Greer, R.G. Absher, and more TBA. Tentative panel topics for 2009 include more advanced equipment and hunting techniques, ghost boxes and EVP's, "Healthy Skepticism," hunting ethics, and a Psychic Reading Room, as well as healthy debate on the elements of science and faith in ghost-hunting. 2009 schedule TBA.
