Earlier in 2014...
"Jo Davy and James Gilberd of Strange Occurrences were delighted to be invited to speak at Paracon Australia, which will be held at Maitland Gaol (out of Sydney) on the weekend of May 10th-11th, 2014.
"We will be talking about some of the topics covered in our book 'Spooked - Exploring the Paranormal in New Zealand', including a section on photography and the paranormal.
"We are looking forward to meeting others in the paranormal community and hearing international speakers such as Dr Cairan O'Keeffe. The venue should be interesting, too!"
After the event...
Well, sadly neither Jo nor Dr O'Keeffe were able to attend. The Paracon was a success, though. Some organisational glitches meant the lead-up was a little tense, but James Gilberd, and Mark Wallbank from Haunted Auckland, attended and spoke at the conference. There were about a hundred paying punters, and we all met some great people, made new friends and contacts in the paranormal world and had a great time. We are hoping to attend (and maybe speak at) the next Paracon in Australia, possibly in Melbourne.
Looking forward to it.
