2013 Ozark Mountain UFO Conference APRIL 12–14

2013 Ozark Moun­tain UFO Con­fer­ence

Ozark UFO Con­fer­ence
In 1988, Bill Pitts of Fort Smith, Arkansas held a UFO con­fer­ence in Eure­ka Springs, Arkansas, and Lou Far­ish decid­ed that there was a need for an annu­al UFO con­fer­ence in that region of the coun­try. From 1989 through 2009 he direct­ed the Ozark UFO Con­fer­ence, con­sid­ered by some researchers to be one of the best UFO con­fer­ences in the coun­try, with a typ­i­cal atten­dance of 400 — 600 peo­ple from hun­dreds of miles around. Lou want­ed the con­fer­ence to be as afford­able and acces­si­ble as pos­si­ble, so he sched­uled it on the sec­ond week­end in April every year, just before the more expen­sive tourist sea­son motel rates took effect in Eure­ka Springs. Also, he charged less than $50 for the three-day con­fer­ence, which usu­al­ly includ­ed at least nine speak­ers, some from as far away as Rus­sia. Because of the qual­i­ty of the con­fer­ence speak­ers, the laid-back and con­ver­sa­tion-friend­ly envi­ron­ment of the Inn of the Ozarks, and the nat­ur­al spring­time beau­ty of Eure­ka Springs, many atten­dees rou­tine­ly reserved a room for the fol­low­ing year as they checked out at the end of each con­fer­ence. For many, the con­fer­ence was like a big annu­al home­com­ing expe­ri­ence to look for­ward to. After 20 years, Lou stepped aside and turned the lead­er­ship of the con­fer­ence over to Lee Clin­ton, who had man­aged the con­fer­ence audio­vi­su­al pro­duc­tion for most of those years. For 2013, Lee has passed on to Dolores Can­non the lead­er­ship of of what will be renamed the Ozark Moun­tain UFO Con­fer­ence.
