Rotary Conifer Evening Meetings
Mornings are difficult for some of us, that is why we have evening meetings. Please join us at 5:30 PM every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at St. Laurence Episcopal Church, 26812 Barkley Rd. in Conifer. We are the same club with the same interests and ambitions; helping people in our local mountain community and around the world.

Program: Bigfoot in America
Jim Myers
 
The Country store in Bailey, which was built in 1878, now houses the Sasquatch Outpost and Museum. Jim and his wife Daphne created the Outpost from the Bailey Country store.
 
The Sasquatch Outpost idea started shortly after they purchased the store, a long time member of the Bailey community had seen a Bigfoot in the Bailey area while out walking. She shared her experience with Jim.  Then the television program, Finding Bigfoot, came to Bailey after this Bailey sighting.  Over 100 people came to the event, so Jim knew there was a interest in Bigfoot and he and Daphne decided to create their Sasquatch Outpost and Museum.  Public interest has been impressive, over 10,000 people have visited since they opened the museum three years ago. The museum expanded two months ago to about double the size.  It includes a map with pins marking Bigfoot sightings of museum visitors. 
 
There have been sightings in every State and Canada, in the last 50 years there have been as many as 30,00 sightings.  Physical evidence of Bigfoot existence includes:
  1. Footprints (there was a 20 inch print on the Tanglewood trail; near Bailey Lodge—the prints were 7-8 foot stride)
  2. Manipulation of the environment (tree upside down and rammed into the ground and tipped into the crook of another tree, snapped aspen trees left hanging)
  3. Habituation activity—gifting sites (setting up a site with items, leaving it and returning to notice changes to the site)
  4. Sightings (Patterson-Gimlin Film 1967, Bluff Creek, CA)
 
 
Guests: Jim and Daphne Myers
