I attended this (possibly) once in a lifetime conference of strange happenings in the sleepy little town of Dulce, New Mexico. At first we had to turn people away as the crowd swelled to over 100 +. The Best Western management started to freak out as the bar/lounge started to explode with excitement and a little anger, as the crowd exceeded room capacity. Finally the former public safety director and speaker Holt Verde helped the conference find a more suitable venue next door at the new grocery store. So we stopped the event and physically moved everything across the street. Now in a more comfortable setting, the event continued. Speaker after speaker, some of whom were Jicarilla Apaches, told amazing stories of strange events in the area over the last 50 years and kept the audience in a deep state of attention.
Before the event started we all had a wake-up call at about 6:00 am in the morning as three or four large unidentified helicopters buzzed the town and scared the residents. The guests in town didnâ€™t think much of it and thought it was maybe a normal event. But after we got up and heard the townspeople complain and talk about the noisy encounter, we knew this was not normal. Maybe someone was being warned. Could this have been official army or a paramilitary group, telling the townâ€™s residents to keep quiet and not attend the conference? The residents were visibly shaken, but they still came with their stories of abductions, Bigfoot, UFOs, little people and their infamous underground base. They even poked a little fun at Norio, the conferenceâ€™s organizer, telling us that during Norioâ€™s visit 19 years ago, they planted disinformation as a trickster would. We all laughed, even Norio.
In the next few weeks I will take each speaker and condense and present to you the guts of this profound event that I was honored to attend. Side note: the conference made the front page of the Albuquerque Journal.
Sleep tight and dream long.
P.S. Dulce is a beautiful physical (and metaphysical) place, with wonderful caring people.
Norio- Concerned look as the crowd becomes restless.
