11-Year Old Bigfoot Researcher Looking Forward Ohio Bigfoot Conference

Cal Marks wins 1st Prize at his Science Fair
"I tell them, well, with all the sightings, photographs and videos for evidence, how can they all be hoaxes?" -- Cal Marks' retort to skeptics

The StarGazzette has an inspiring story of an ambitious 11-year old who is an aspiring cryptozoologist and Bigfoot researcher. His name is Cal Marks; he sleeps under an inflatable globe marked with sightings, a poster-sized pinned map New York, and thick binder of sightings by county. To top it off, he won his school's science fair on the topic of Bigfoot.

Learn more about Cal Marks in the excerpt below.
Meet Cal Marks, of Wellsburg, Bigfoot researcher and aspiring cryptozoologist. His mom calls this amiable 11-year-old "Calisquatch," a play off his name and interests.

"Some kids think I am crazy because I believe in Bigfoot. They are trying to tell me that Bigfoot is not real," said the Broadway Elementary School fifth-grader. "I tell them, well, with all the sightings, photographs and videos for evidence, how can they all be hoaxes?"

Cal hasn't seen a Bigfoot, though he and his brothers went looking during one family vacation to the Adirondacks. He described how he would outfit himself for his next expedition: "I'd take a camera, number one, and probably a weapon, just in case. There hasn't been any Bigfoot attacks, except for maybe one or two."

Cal's research into locations of Bigfoot sightings earned him first place as a fourth-grader at his school's science fair last year. He thinks field research as a cryptozoologist for such creatures as the Loch Ness monster or Jersey Devil would be a great career.

"For anybody who doesn't believe, do you know how many new species of animals just last year alone were found? There are so many," he said.
Cal's whole family is going with him to the Ohio Bigfoot Conference and is looking forward to meeting Bigfoot legend Bob Gimlin.

 For over 20 years, Don Keating has been organizing and hosting a bigfoot conference in an area he has named the Sasquatch Triangle. It has grown to be the marquee bigfoot related event east of the Mississippi, boasting attendance in excess of 400 enthusiasts and consistent praise from those in attendance. The 2012 edition of the Ohio Bigfoot Conference is a transitional year as he entrusts this event to other respected and long-time Ohio bigfooters who have committed to continue the tradition of a quality bigfoot focused conference in the Sasquatch Triangle.  The Ohio Bigfoot Organization (OBO), led by Marc DeWerth,  is the host group for the conference.
