In July or early August 1998, Perth TV viewers, accustomed to ducking for cover from jarring salesmen shouting their iffy bargains at them were suddenly pounded by slick, on-the-button ads announcing an imminent and unmissable spectacular event. World-famous UFO researcher, Stanton Friedman, nuclear physicist, Roswell expert, nemesis of sceptics everywhere, was coming to the once quiet (except for the tele’ ads) little city of Perth. Stanton was in possession of the goods, he’d recently routed Philip Klass, self-proclaimed know-it-all sceptic, with documentary evidence and this Canadian bulldog was taking no prisoners. The noisy-negatives, as he called the sceptics, when he wasn’t calling them de-bunkers, had nothing to fight back with and holstered their smugs.
There are, and have been, many people over many years doing their best to make a difference by holding talks and other events.
There is little to compare with meeting up in person, to exchange ideas and make real new friends and contacts.
In so many cases, despite doing everything they can, and can afford to do, organisers end up struggling to continue. Despite ignorant and darkly contrived allegations that they are ‘in it for the money’ this is not at all true for the vast majority. In fact, so far, presenting events that challenge orthodox programming has been one of the quickest ways to go broke. Most people put on conferences for the benefit of attendees, not for themselves, but events in our genres run on a shoe-string and very often end up losing money through poor attendance.
