The 2015 MUFON Symposium was experienced by more than 600 souls this past weekend at the Hotel Irvine, in Irvine, CA. Feedback was extremely positive from beginning to end. The weekend started off with a Symposium Press conference with media from TV, radio, and print in attendance. Fox News did a nice piece which is shown below, as did the local newspaper the Daily Pilot.
Later Friday evening the first radio play ever in the history of the Symposium kicked off with a cast of UFO notables including Stanton Friedman, Lee Spiegel, Erica Lukes, Dwight Equitz and several members of the cast from HANGAR 1. The play was immediately followed by a dinner banquet and keynote address by the Honorable Paul Hellyer, former defense minister of Canada. From that point on, the weekend was a whirlwind of presentations all day Saturday and Sunday, with a pause to celebrate Season 2 of HANGAR 1 at the HANGAR 1 Hangout Saturday night.
The hangout was hosted by Jimmy Church of Fade to Black Radio and included most of the cast and crew from the hit TV series HANGAR 1. After the festivities ended, everyone retired to the bar and spent the rest of the evening talking, getting autographs, having pictures taken, and drinking a toast to the show. Sunday was very busy with the finale being a panel made up of Stanton Friedman, Dr. Robert Wood, Jaime Maussan, Marc d Antonio, Cheryll Jones and Lee Speigel discussing “Making Ufology respectable.” All in all it was an incredible time. DVDs are available for those wishing to savor the memories, or for those who missed out and would like to see what they missed. So get your orders in, and sign up early for next year’s 2016 MUFON Symposium August 25-28th, in Orlando, FL. Mark your calendar NOW, you’ll be glad you did!
