UFO-CONVENTION AT GIANT ROCK AIRPORT

The UFO-CONVENTION at Lander's California's Giant Rock were epic in strangeness.  As odd as these gatherings were or was, there was a lot of good info passed on at these shindigs. Below are photos and data from these WOODSTOCK-ESQUE paranormal meetings.... These out in the wilds, no air conditioning, no heater, rough it, desert get togethers  -- spanned 3 decades. Sadly this event is no more and what a marvel it was.

LEFT & BELOW: The annual UFO-CONVENTION at the Giant Rock attracted the curious,  the seekers, the crackpots, hustlers, the lost, the honest, the dishonest, the worthy, the dishonorable and people looking for a fun time. The following article, goes into some detail about the group that assembled at the Giant Rock UFO-CONVENTION of 1954.

READING THE ARTICLE

The above article or parts of it is obviously concentrating on the outlandish personalities or mental cases that attended the Giant Rock UFO-CONVENTION.

However, there were legit people who spoke or went to this affair and these regular Americans had authentic observations or ideas about the Flying Saucer waves that were seen over the USA in the 1950s & 1960s.

This UFO-CONVENTION was held from 1954 to 1977. 

Below, a short article on how the man who ran the UFO-CONVENTION, was first contacted by aliens.

The articles concerning the UFO-CONVENTION, mainly dealt with people who had beyond bizarre stories. It seems the media was  trying to discredit the idea that there was legitimate UFO sightings and contact by way of publishing outlandish yarns. Tall tales were taken from some people who were at this UFO-CONVENTION and put into the main stream news outlets.  The idea by way of the authorities (OPERATION-BLUE-BOOK and MOCKINGBIRD type clandestine BLACK OPS) was to discredit UFO reporting or intimidate the curious by way of being associated with some of the outlandish stories and the few disturbed people that attended the convention.   

THE UFO-CONVENTION AT THE GIANT ROCK WERE FUN HAPPENINGS --- CONDITIONS WERE PRIMITIVE, BUT ROUGHING IT -- ADDED FLAVOR TO THE SHINDIG.

Below: Looks like Van Tassel in the tower and in the chair on stage right, it could be George Adamski who was a supposed contact. Scuttlebutt had it that both men disagreed with each other and disliked each other.

ABOVE:  The lady is very interested in a UFO-CONVENTION speaker, but that does not happen all the time, look at the 2 photos below. The crowd is bored by another speaker. 

ABOVE: The crowd looks like it is bored with speaker X. LEFT: The guy with his sleeping wife on his shoulder looks like hs is thinking the speaker is a fraud, what a waste of time this speech is. Maybe they are listening to contactee GEORGE ADAMSKI, that man could be very boring!

THE UFO-CONVENTION 1965. To get to this meeting you could fly in or you could travel from a paved road, down 30 miles of dirt road. It was an adventure getting there.

Below - this UFO-CONVENTION PHOTO is from early 1970s, because of what looks like a COORS truck on the right.  If I remember correctly, COORS did not  expand its operation into California until 1971. Then again, maybe it is not a COORS truck and the photo is circa  mid-late 1960s due to the van & trailer's body shapes.
