Sad News about UFOWisconsin:

We have come to a very difficult decision which we have thought seriously about for several months. Effective February 1, 2004, we will no longer be running UFOWisconsin. We are very proud of the success we have had with UFOWisconsin, with hundreds of people submitting their reports to us, thousands of people visiting the site daily, top results in every search engine, and the newspaper/media popularity of the site. However, we have decided to move on to other ventures.

We would like to take this time to thank the following people:

Jim Aho, for giving us the initial 72 files to launch this website, and for his support throughout the years,

Bill Burt, for designing many of our graphics,

Kevin Sturgis, for taking photographs at some of our events,

Heidi Hollis and the members of The Lightside, for their continued support of us and UFOWisconsin,

Krista Soloski, for her constant support,

Every individual who has submitted a UFO report to us,

Every individual who has attended one of our meetings or get togethers,

And countless others, too many to name, who have visited the site or helped out in ways too numerous to mention.

In the event that someone would be interested in continuing on with the website please contact me. I can get the actual monthly stats if anyone is interested, but suffice it to say we get several thousand unique visitors a day, utilizing approximately 5-6 gigs of bandwidth per month. The domain fees are paid until August for ufowisconsin.com, ufowisconsin.net, and ufowisconsin.org. The hosting we use is fairly inexpensive, and if you kept the same hosting company it would not be necessary to edit any of the forms on the site. There are currently over 1200 pages on UFOWisconsin, with categories such as UFO Reports (by date and by county), UFO News, UFO hangouts & groups, UFO education, UFO library, Photo & Video Gallery, SkyWatch, a new discussion forum, and many other categories. If you know anything about html, the site code was hand written by me using current html 4.0 codes and it does validate. Feel free to email me at: Jenny@ufowisconsin.com or call 920-458-4721 (serious inquiries only please).

On a more fun note, we will be having a final UFO meeting / farewell party on Saturday, January 31st at our home in Sheboygan. We will cater with pizza and soda. So just bring a hearty appetite for conversation, an appetizer if you wish, and join us for one final major ufo get - together!

This is bad news indeed...Just wondering how things stand right now. Has anyone else stepped up to take the reins? I know we'd all hate to see a resouce like this disappear!

Keeping my fingers crossed,

Shelter from the storm, and then back out into the rain. There is no other site even remotely as effective, or informative as this one. I hope very much that someone mans the helm soon.

Hi Crazy (I hate to address you as "crazy" but that's the only name I see for you on your post!). What kinds of things are you seeing? UFOs, ghosts, or something else? Feel free to share. We'll only call ya crazy if that's what you tell us to call you! cheesy
