Creature Weekend is proud to announce that the cast of Destination America’s hit TV series “Mountain Monsters” will be joining the speaker lineup at the 2015 Creature Weekend Conference held at Salt Fork State Park in Cambridge, Ohio.

Mountain Monsters is a weekly show that airs on Destination America, and follows the Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings (AIMS) as they defend their mountain community from mysterious monsters that have spawned countless sightings in the Appalachian wilderness for generations.

AIMS was founded by John “Trapper” Tice, Jeff Headlee and Willy McQuillian. Longtime friends, the three discovered that they shared the same passion for the folklore of Appalachia, including tales of beasts that purportedly roam the Appalachian Mountain region. Any skepticism that they had soon dissipated as the three began having their own encounters with these creatures. Eventually, the three decided to pool their resources and the result was the formation of the AIMS group. The group later expanded to six members with the addition of Joe “Huckleberry” Lott, “Wild Bill” Neff and Jake “Buck” Lowe.    

As stated on their website, the mission of AIMS is to “investigate mysterious sightings of creatures and phenomena in the Appalachian Regions, as reported by individuals who are frequently scared that they will be laughed at and ridiculed for what they saw. Upon investigating these reports we will move to track, trap and capture these creatures. In the end we will either know that our witness actually saw a mysterious beast or that no beast exists. We want to help these people to have peace of mind and know that they are not alone in their mysterious encounters.”

Each episode of “Mountain Monsters” displays the group’s ingenuity at tracking and trap-making. More information about Destination America’s “Mountain Monsters” can be found at http://www.destinationamerica.com/tv-shows/mountain-monsters/

Trapper and the whole AIMS team of “Mountain Monsters” will be available for autograph signing and photo opportunities throughout the weekend. They will be in attendance at the Friday night private “Dinner with the Speakers” event as well as the conference on Saturday. Weather permitting, there will be a special “Mountain Monsters Safari” conducted on Saturday night following the conclusion of the conference. At this event, AIMS will lead a small group of attendees on a night expedition in search of the elusive Sasquatch at Salt Fork State Park.
