Halloween was great this year for WCGAPS. We had media coverage from four news stations and three newspapers. We finished up the long run of investigations and interviews last night with an event at the Gilbert Historic Museum. It went okay for the most part, but there are a few things that could have been done differently. The traffic was steady all night and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Their interests in the paranormal and West Coast Ghost and Paranormal Society was fascinating. So many questions and luckily we had the group there to answer. Everyone was intrigued when we let them listen to clips of paranormal activity we’ve captured over the last two years (and yes, we will have it up on the website soon).
I want to give a shout out to FOX 10 and their crew here in Phoenix and KVOA Channel 4 in Tucson! They did great pieces on us this year and working with them was without question a great experience. It was the third year of working with Bil Osher at FOX 10 and our first year working with Faye DeHoff at Channel 4. Take a look at the stories and let us all know what you think.
So, November is going to be a relaxation time for the group, as far as investigations go. We’ll be working on and updating the website, finished backlogged reviews, and working on some new case management projects. Always work to do, but the knowledge of having four weekends free is such a relief. Then in December West Coast GAPS will be off to (wish I could tell you, but you’ll have to wait another couple of days).
I’m thinking of having a contest to have a guest investigator come with us. Not sure what kind of contest yet and it’s just an idea at this point. We don’t let the public into our scheduled investigations so it would be a great opportunity for someone. We are planning to investigate four locations over two days in a town in southern Arizona (hint). So if you have any ideas for a contest or think it’s a good idea, comment on the post. Your input would be a great asset because I still have to pitch the idea to the group for their approval.
