Nicholasville, Kentucky — PsyTech, in conjunction with FANTASMA! Magazine, has announced plans to host the First Annual Kentucky Paranormal Conference at Nicholasville’s historic Camp Nelson in September. The convention, a must for anyone interested in ghost hunting and other paranormal topics, begins Friday, September 22 at 6 pm and ends Saturday, September 23 at midnight. The cost of $99 per person includes a campout at Camp Nelson on Friday evening, where tents will be pitched on the very ground where soldiers’ barracks once stood, and ghost hunting at the refugee cemetery and the old Civil War prison. “We have had previous campouts here, and have experienced a good deal of paranormal activity,” says Starr Chaney, organizer of the event. “We’ve even heard the soldiers walking around our tents while we were trying to sleep!” Chaney and her daughter, Jessi, form the paranormal research team known as PsyTech, and they have investigated many cases of alleged hauntings around the country. The 2006 Kentucky Paranormal Conference is designed to bring aficionados of the supernatural together for learning opportunities and an exchange of ideas, while at the same time drawing attention to a historic part of the state.
“Participants can also attend classes held on Saturday in Nicholasville’s haunted Old Jail,” says Chaney. “There will be past life regressions with medium Denita Ross and seminars lead by nationally renowned EVP Specialist Todd Bates of Haunted Voices.” Chaney, a certified paranormal investigator and member of the American Dowsing Association, will also give classes on how to use dowsing rods to carry out paranormal research. Chaney and her daughter will also be featured in a special pre-screening of Utopia Dream Production’s new documentary Haunted Kentucky. On Saturday afternoon, Louisville writer David Dominé – author of Ghosts of Old Louisville: True Stories of Hauntings in America’s Largest Victorian Neighborhood and Phantoms of Old Louisville: Ghostly Tales from America’s Most Haunted Neighborhood – will give a talk about the haunted history in Old Louisville, one of the mot haunted neighborhoods in the USA. A continental breakfast, box lunch, and sit down dinner on Saturday are included in the package price as well.
