How to Bring a BFRO Town
Meeting to Your
Town or School
If you or your local organization (e.g. Historical Society,
school, local newspaper, etc.) would like the BFRO to
hold a town hall meeting, here's how to make it
Organize a Fundraiser to
bring the BFRO
Organize a fundraiser
to raise $5,000 - $7,000 for
the BFRO to prepare, advertise,
promote and then
fly people in to emceee the meeting, and pay
costs for witnesses to attend the meeting.
cost will be closer to $7,000 if your fundraising
provide an auditorium venue with minimum
seating capacity (75
seats) and modern audiovisual basics
(microphones, PA system,
projection screen, etc.).
As soon as the funds are raised the
BFRO will send its own
organizers to meet with local organizers for
a few days.
The BFRO people need to inspect the venue and test the
audiovisual equipment and discuss which local witnesses
presentations would be most informative for the community.
BFRO organizers will return there to run the actual meeting.
between those two visits, he BFRO wil promote the meeting
social media and publicize it in local (statewide) mainstream
media to bring in even more witnesses.
The TV show Finding
Bigfoot was able to pull in more than
500 attendees on some
occasions so no auditorium is too large.
The production team
also had access to the BFRO's internal
unpublished Rolodex of
50,000 witnesses. Only the BFRO
can reach into a well so deep and
so old to pull out so many
credible witnesses from every state
except Delaware and
Organizers can potentially
recoup all of the money raised
by charging door fees and
and vendor booths, etc. In this way the
are paid back for their efforts. Hence if a
Society or boyscout troupe raises the funding,
can get back all of the money raised (or most of it) and
for a different project for those local organizers.
In this way the
organizers can fund two projects from
the same fundraiser, or
return the funding to the sponsor.
A door fee
should be no more than $8 for adults, $6 for minors.
town hall is part of a larger festival for which the general

and recruit the witnesses
and presenters, then emcee the meeting
from the audience. The BFRO also advertises for these
meetings in advance via the BFRO web site and the group's
substantial social media following.
In some cases Matt Moneymaker
and some other
cast members from "Finding Bigfoot" will
emcee the meeting and possibly run a local bigfoot
expedition during the ensuing days.
In most other cases Matt
Moneymaker will be involved
with the meeting via video
keen to work with people who want to make their event
an annual event
which grows in popularity each year, as did the
conference which now attracts thousands annually.
These meetings are similar to the ones seen in the TV series
"Finding Bigfoot." The big difference is the depth of examination
for each incident, particularly with regard to geography.
listen to witness stories then examine aerial imagery of the
sighting locations to see what can be gleaned from them.
More can be learned from aerial imagery of sighting locations
than you might expect, especially after examining several areas
within a given state.
