READING THE ARTICLE

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

However, there were legit people who spoke or went to the UFO CONVNETION, 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 happenings, by way of publishing outlandish yarns. The tall tales were taken from some the people who were at this UFO CONVENTION.  The idea was to discredit UFO reporting or intimidate the curious.

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

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 -- looks.
