" Rob and I were so glad to have attended as it's such an intimate and laid back but educational and so full of knowledge fun weekend, topping it off, made lots of new para-family friends. John and Jackie put on an event that will keep us coming back every year! We take away a lifetime of information and knowledge that few places offer in the paranormal world and amongst that, we get to meet other people with the same interest who become our para-friends and para-family! Kudos to John and Jackie for conjuring up this yearly event!" - Deb Simpson, Canada 2017
