Houston MUFON meeting Aug 30, 2018
Special Event: Cash-Landrum Incident Site Visit and Sky Watch with British TV Series Filming August 30, 2018
THIS EVENT WILL BE FILMED BY A BRITISH TELEVISION PROGRAM AND WE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO COME JOIN US. CASH-LANDRUM
We will first visit the site where the Cash-Landrum incident took place in 1980 on the North-East side of Houston. SKY-WATCH
Following the Cash-Landrum site visit, we will be have a Sky-Watch at a location near Crosby Texas which is about 20 minutes from the Cash-Landrum sight.
We will be joined by a British Actor (who has been announced as the next Companion in the new "Dr Who") and his son who are working on a new travel series in which they are going on an American Road Trip together. Both are fascinated by the study of UFOs and the dad is especially intrigued by the idea of alien life. The production is looking to capture some personal accounts from some of our members in a communal spirit and approach it with an open minded attitude. If you have had a personal experience you are welcome to share it with the production but there is no pressure and you are not obligated to do so. NOTE: They are filming a new travel series, they are NOT filming an episode of Dr. Who!

Finally, We do not have a membership fee so we are asking for a $5.00 voluntary donation per person at the event. You are NOT required to donate. This money goes to pay for drinks and snacks at the general meeting, for the Meetup site fees, for any other expenses related to running the meetings and helps us to have events like this. The books are completely open on this and I will have a spreadsheet of the account available at the general meetings if anyone is interested. As always, Keep your eyes to the skies! --Steve
