In conjunction with David Wells' visit to the East Coast for Paracon Australia, Team W.S.P.R were lucky enough to be joined by David for a Bridgeclimb. Scaling 1390 steps to the summit, 134 metres above sea-level, W.S.P.R were able to show David the sights of Sydney as seen by no other vantage point.
David and the crew thoroughly enjoyed their climb, as they experienced a full complement of all types of weather.
"This has been a highlight for Team W.S.P.R. Spending time with David was amazing... He is a true gentleman, funny, intelligent and very down to earth", said Craig Powell, Lead Investigator at WSPR. Case Manager, Beth Luscombe stated that meeting and getting to know David over the past three days was like he was a "long lost friend".
Team W.S.P.R would like to Thank Kerrie Wearing and Access Paranormal for Paracon 2012 and for arranging David's visit - We'd also like to Thank WSPR Founder, Nicky Myers for organising this amazing experience with David.
Oran Park House - The Home of ParaCon 2012
The first ever ParaCon Australia was held over the weekend of 24-25 March 2012 - And what a Welcome to ParaCon it was!!!
This now to be annual event is sure to be a huge success every year and will be sure to get bigger and better each time.
This years paranormal conference was held at Oran Park House, south-west of Sydney. It was an awesome opportunity for groups, ghost tours and other operators in the paranormal field to show case their talents. It was the perfect networking platform, where enthusiasts, fans and associates can come together and put faces to names.
There were stalls set up, not only by ourselves, but by another paranormal crew A.P.P.I, Newcastle Ghost Tours and also SoUL Searchers. It was a great opportunity for these organisations to show case their tours, equipment, evidence etc, etc.
