Promoter Eyes '08 UFO Show; Beckley Not Ruled Out

Register-Herald Reporter

Honeymooners and the plain curious from a number of states and
foreign countries helped make the first UFO Extravaganza a
success, and promoter Larry Bailey says he is already throwing
out some ideas for the 2008 show.

One is to use chartered buses to visit some of the sites dear to
UFO enthusiasts, such as Flatwoods, home of the so-called
Braxton Monster that frightened adults and school children alike
on a September evening back in 1952 and formed the backdrop of
Bailey's first show.

"I wouldn't rule out Beckley," Bailey said Tuesday when asked if
he would consider staging the second show next summer outside

"I wouldn't rule out some of the little cities, either. I'm a
firm believer that if they want you, you have to listen to

Bailey's first show, held at the old Capitol Theater in
Charleston, featured nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman, who has
spent years researching the UFO phenomenon ever since the 1947
benchmark incident in Roswell, N.M., where many believe aliens
crash-landed spacecraft and the government launched an elaborate
scheme to cover up the evidence.

Friedman's presentation was based on what he calls a "Cosmic
Watergate" with the federal authorities systematically hiding
evidence of visitations by aliens in their zeal to maintain
control of the citizenry, who, if they became aware of the
truth, would be inclined to see themselves less as citizens of
individual nations but as earthlings.

Author Frank Feschino autographed his second book on the
Flatwoods Monster, which he asserts was an alien who hobbled
into West Virginia after his craft was disabled in a space
battle between ETs and U.S. jetfighters.

Bailey said the UFO event, if staged annually, could help stir
some economic development.

"We're kind of dying on the vine at times," he said.

"We definitely need some tourism or something to rejuvenate this

Besides chartered tours of eerie sites, Bailey is exploring the
prospect of bring in a variety of other speakers next year.
Before then, Bailey intends to take the show on the road to
Charlotte, N.C., either by the end of this year or next spring.
