Bigfoot ? - Major Bigfoot Expedition Seeking Participation From Corporate Sponsors and Journalists
REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 01/07/2004 -- "The only way to prove that some kind of Bigfoot creature exists is to put together a big time expedition to capture and study one," according to Bigfoot explorer, C. Thomas Biscardi of Redwood City, California. Biscardi is currently putting together that expedition now and is inviting journalists and corporate sponsors to participate in his "American Bigfoot Expedition," set to launch in the spring or early summer of 2004.
"'The American Bigfoot Expedition' will be both a commercial and scientific expedition and we will also offer the rights to televise it," according to Biscardi, who has lengthy credentials when it comes to searching for Bigfoot.
Biscardi's first search for Bigfoot was documented in 1973 and then he produced a documentary film in 1981, "In the Shadow of Bigfoot."
The timing of this current expedition was prompted by the recent sighting and news reports of an "albino" Bigfoot. Biscardi has seen and has a photo of a baby Bigfoot with white fur. This creature is not necessarily an albino, but it does have white fur. The photo was taken by tracker, Peggy Marx. The encounter happened while Marx and Biscardi were driving along a logging road in the Shasta area of northern California. Marx was doing some advance planning for a bear hunting trip when they ran across the signs and scent of Bigfoot.
A photo from that encounter can currently be seen at www.barrows.com/bigfoot.html. (The barrows.com website site is the site of the advertising and public relations agency that is helping Biscardi coordinate the corporate participation and the initial media relations for this expedition.)
This expedition will be offering companies sponsorship opportunities to participate in the outfitting and equipping of the expedition as well as the opportunity to bid for broadcast rights and merchandising rights.
"Everything that will be necessary for this expedition to become a success will be open to corporate sponsorship and participation," according to Tom Biscardi, "and that includes goods and services from outdoor gear and food and water suppliers, to hi-tech communications devices, global positioning equipment, computer equipment and everything else we will take along from hygiene and health products to bug spray, deodorant and legal, insurance and medical services as well as journalistic and scientific participation. The expedition will make detailed observations of their findings for scientific publication. These findings will encompass natural and environmental studies, anthropological, botanical and zoological reports, as well as sociological studies of the participants in the expedition as the expedition progresses.
Companies that supply goods and services for the expedition will also be eligible to send a qualified representative of their company on the expedition. The sponsors will be asked to put up a participation fee and supply their goods for the duration of the expedition.
The key to making the expedition a success is knowing where to go to begin this search for Bigfoot and having the experience and know-how to track Bigfoot. Biscardi plans to begin the expedition with some detective work into the recent sightings and known "hot spots" for Bigfoot sightings. The primary tracker in this expedition, Peggy Marx, maintains maps with the locations of numerous Bigfoot sightings on them in The Bigfoot Information Center at Burney, California. Peggy Marx and her late husband, Ivan Marx, have functioned as an unofficial clearing house for a multitude of reports on Bigfoot sightings.
The actual locations that the expedition will be working in will be kept secret for fear that thousands of amateur Bigfoot hunters will flock to the woods and endanger the Bigfoot as well as themselves. The photos, findings, stories and descriptions of the findings will be the property of The American Bigfoot Expedition and will be offered for commercial sale, use and distribution and scientific study.
Companies interested in submitting proposals for participating in the expedition can contact Robert Barrows, President of R.M. Barrows, Inc. Advertising and Public Relations in Burlingame, California at 650-344-1951. R.M. Barrows will be coordinating the initial sponsorship requests and media relations for the expedition. Barrows will also be working as an associate producer on the broadcast, film and print projects based on the expedition. Barrows has worked with the Biscardi organization on the advertising and publicity for several other projects and events.
