Florida Ghost Chasers at the Community Center

I am speaking with the Florida Ghost Chaser’s about their upcoming event, FGC Paragon which will be held on September 26th at the COMMUNITY CENTER 60 ORANGE ST, ST. AUGUSTINE, FL 32084.

Hi all, tell me how Florida Ghost Chasers began and what it is about?

We started out as a group of friends with like interest in the Paranormal Field. We decided that we would like to have a great team of serious investigators to go out and pursue our interest even more. Some of us have been investigating for many years while others just started out in the last year. Together as a whole we have over 40 yrs experience through our group!

We are a group of investigators in the North Florida area who have come together to investigate claims of paranormal activity. Our goal is to discover and record credible evidence of potential paranormal occurrences through audio, video, and data specific means.

We are not recreational investigators. Our mission is to collect verifiable evidence of the paranormal and to set a standard that will bring credibility to the field of paranormal research by bridging the gap between the paranormal researcher and the main-stream scientific communities.

Our team is comprised of people from different backgrounds and all walks of life, but we all have one thing in common- the desire to prove whether or not phenomena exist that defy the boundaries of nature, science, and reason.

FGC holds its operations to a higher standard than can be found within the main-stream paranormal research community.
FGC has chosen to separate itself from the hordes of Dust Chasers who have successfully defined paranormal research as the pursuit of mythology, misinterpretation, and trickery. As serious researchers, this boundary gives us the freedom to leave behind the failing tools, tactics, and brands of evidence that those in the main-stream paranormal community are bound to by custom and requirements of inclusion while allowing us to establish standards and protocol that are bound by reason and accountability.

Although we do investigate claims of ghostly phenomena, we are not to be confused as ghost hunters. We do not investigate for the purposes of linking seemingly paranormal activity with sources that are, for lack of a better word, mythological or improvable. Our investigations are geared towards proving whether or not paranormal activity exists at all in its basic form as an occurrence that defies logical explanation. Our tactics are geared towards eliciting and documenting genuine phenomena in a manner that will gain the respect and attention of the main-stream scientific community. We recognize that, in the end, they will be the ones who make the big discoveries pertaining to sources of paranormal activity. Our job is to provide justification and validation for their efforts.
Who are the organizers for the event? We Florida Ghost Chasers as a team collaborated together to make this event possible.

Will there be ghost stories, paranormal speeches?

Jenny Stewart of Paranormal Research and Resource Society will be presenting “Hello. Is anyone out there?” a hands on presentation demonstrating how to efficiently collect and review audio. The presentation also includes a demonstration on the use of the “Shack Hack” which Jenny has fondly dubbed the Ghost Box! PRRS has been one of the leading teams who have devoted countless hours to the use of the Ghost Box in research. A recent investigation they conducted with the aid of the Ghost Box will be featured later this year on a new show appearing on Animal Planet. Jenny Stewart is the executive producer of the full length documentary that will be released later this year Secret Sacrifices, The Henryton Project. Both have collected and reviewed over two hundred audio hours from the Henryton Project and will include some of the EVP’s collected during the project five month lifespan along with a sneak preview of the documentary.

Shawn Sellers will be doing Presentations on a number of topics – 1. Cleansings – How to protect yourself and home from negative entities. 2. The Dark side of the Paranormal – Various stories about his and SPR’s experiences with the dark side of our field. 3. The Legend of the Crossroads – Where music, spirituality and the devil meet. 4. The 2012 Theory

Deadtime Paranormal Investigations will be doing a presentation on a project going called “Ghost Awareness”, where they promote the use of safety techniques while conducting paranormal investigations. Their group personally encountered a very dangerous situation while doing an EVP session where a man was thrown against the wall by a great amount of force and it was done while using what they call “Provoking techniques”. They have footage of the incident where the man was thrown and thought they would use it during their speech and they would also speak about other cases where other groups have encountered these type of incidences. They have been gathering a lot of information about these types of cases and safety precautions for groups like ours to use. While they do promote the dangers that can be involved, they still promote paranormal investigations as it is probably one of the most important sciences there is due to the nature of the subject and what it means. It can ultimately mean our destiny as human beings and what is in store for us in the hereafter.

This is just a few of the day’s presentations that will be given! We will also be holding classes as simultaneously as other presentations are giving.

What types of entertainment will be at the event?

We will have Drum Circles and Belly Dancing throughout the day along with Drumming Classes!
