This August for the fifth time the great and the good of British cryptozoology will once again be converging upon the Cowick Barton Inn, Exeter for three days of cryptozoology, good food, good beer, good company and sheer fun.

As always, all proceeds go towards the CFZs ongoing programme of research and expeditions. This year we are raising money for:

  •   An expedition to Mongolia in 2005 to attempt to catch a pair of Death Worms and bring them back alive.
  •   Our third expedition to Sumatra to stay with the semi-nomadic Kubu people and gather the first ever collection of their oral traditions of unknown animals
  •   Maintainance of our first ever nature reserve
  •   A project - together with Team Cryptokeeper - to search for giant snapping turtles in the Texas swamplands
  •   A hunt for the black `panthers` of the Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois
  • This years line up is better than ever.

    We can provide you with a list of cheap B&Bs or hotels in the vicinity, and the venue itself as well as hosting the cream of forteana for three days serves a wide range of excellent food and drink. What have you got to lose? (Apart from fifteen quid that is).

    Come and join us!
