Last Years first Spook Show went very well and we are confident this years conference will be even better!


the Twin City Opera House was built in 1892 and has been reported haunted since 1963 when 18 youths saw an aparition that was later identified by the owner Galen Finley as an usher Everett Miller who had worked there for 30 years and had lived accross the street from Galen as a boy. There have been two other aparitions reported there by multible people on several different occasions including a lady in white that always crosses the stage and goes up the catwalk steps. there are a couple other spirits in the catwalk as well a 10 year old girl named Elizabeth and a 30 year old stage hand named Robert. Elizabeth has been heard giggling many times up there and ocasionally will even be seen peeking down onto the stage. EVPs from both spirits have been captured during atempted comunication with these spirits. There is even more activity in the opera house down in the basement where pictures and video has captured a black mass and several sightings of shadowmen have been seen.

More information on the opera house can be found at www.twincityoperahouse.com

The Great Appalachian Spook Show continues to gather steam as we have added new venders this year in addition to our many returning venders and speakers. like U-Neel Rabbit Shawls, Shawls & Native American Crafts and Scream Queen actress Cassidy Rae seen in"Halloween Homecoming," "Santa Claus Versus The Zombies," "The Power Within," "Hell House," and Disney's "Secretariat to name a few.
Our after hours events are filling up too so if you want in on one of the workshops or ghost hunts you had better get signed up soon.
Lastly we are announcing a great new photography contest for this years spook show. All weekend long at the spook show or any of its events we encourage you to take pictures and do what you do, look for ghosts. the best pictures submited during the spook show showing some kind of paranormal activity will be in the running to win a 25 dollar prize, we will have some of our speakers and a member of the United Paranormal Project be the judges.
We are also considering having an open photography contest where anyone can bring their best paranormal photograph to the spook show to enter it into a simular contest so dig out your best pics and bring them with you. Theres nothing like being able to compare evidence with others in the field and talk shop anyway.

Great Appalachian Spook Show

Just a couple days untill the spook show and we have a couple updates, first off its likely that Brian Harnois will not be fullfilling his obligation to show up as a speaker or guest at our paranormal conference. he has stiffed several cons recently by taking their money and then doing a no show. unfortunatley I dont see our spook show as having any more chance of his appearance at this point since he is not returning messages or emails. If he should show then I will be the first to apologise.

Sadly their have been others this year and last year who were scheduled and waited untill the last minute to back out, they at least called but otherwise I dont see them being invited back either. But really this isnt unusual, in the paranormal field their are alot of people who don't manage to meet their commitments. I seriously don't think the field is not taken seriosuly just because of its subject matter, its also some of the people out there in the field, casting doubts as to their/our sincereity, profesionalism and reputation by these stunts. The majority are doing their best to advance the field but a few bad apples tend to spoil it for everyone at times.
This also applies to the flipside of a paranormal conference and the paranormal field, the organisers/promoters failing as I have been invited to speak at more than one conference over the years that then folded up and never happend due to not collecting enough pre-sales to satisfy the promoter/organiser or even shadier reasons like having never actually aquired/reserved a location for the show. Many would be conference goers have been stiffed at one point or another by such flim flamery and had to try to fight for refunds. Lastly the paranormal is such a popular field that many people decide they want to put on a conference or para-event and then become overwhelmed with the realities of the money/time and effort involved in schedulling and organising such an event and fail. These flash in the pan cons rarely make it thru their first year to their second. All of this leads me to our own para-con traversing the trials and tribulations and going into its second year.

The Great Appalachian Spook Show turned out to be a great weekend of paranormal speakers, friends and fellow investigators along with a host of interesting people/attendees that really ellevated the conference to a true meeting of the minds and sharing of ideas and theories about the paranormal.
I want to thank everyone who came out and joined us in exploring what the paranormal is and what it means along with tips and techniques on how to improve all of our continueing investigations into this fascinating field.
Our Speakers one and all brought their own unique perspectives and experiences onto our opera house stage and laid out exactly what they feel and believe in their hearts with out any BS or hedging. Their were no cookie cutter TV ansers or dialog at this conference only what real life people in the field for years have discovered in their own treks thru this undiscovered country. There were many outstanding individuals there this weekend and I want to thank them all for their contributions.
I especially want to thank Aron houdini for his outstanding performance and for sacrificing his body to do what he does and also for his frank and informative talk about Harry Houdini, his magic, his life and death and the houdini seances that followed. If you have not seen Houdini perform you really need to.
Speaking of performances, Brian Harnois pulled a dissapearing act and was a no show, no call, no nothing this weekend, stiffing us as we suspected he might after pulling the same thing on multible other events recently.
We had many friends, associate team members and fellow Ohio investigatios and paranormal teams come down to join us, show support, learn new things and catch up with old friends. In addition to the presentations, ghost hunts, venders and work shops, alot of good food and good conversation occured and a good time was had by all. Thanks guys, be Safe, untill we meet again.
Thanks also need to go out to all the attendees and paying public who came down and payed money to see our guests speak, to trust us that we had something unique to share with them and who showed us, the opera house and the paranormal field their support. Without them we would not be able to put on the spook show and we know that and apreciate their patronege. I hope to see many of you in the future, whether it is at next years show or another event or in the field. Take care
I am frankly pretty tired from hosting the spook show and am allready back to work to play catch up, so I will be posting pics and more info about the conference and some really cool news about what the two investigations and all these investigators found in thier own time spent at the opera house in the following days as I am able to go thru the evidence and sort everything out but I can say allready that there is at least on very promising photograph we are scrutinising very thuroughly from the weekend. The whole United Paranormal Project team is allready posting pics from the conference up on facebook and more pics and evidence will be going up on the Great Appalachian Spook Show website in the following days www.greatappalachianspookshow.com
