Tonight, Ruben will present his detailed research on a case that most people are not familiar with, but the details of which will ASTOUND you.
This is the story of one man's terrifying encounter with aliens in a dark forest near Cisco Grove, California in 1964. This is when California hunter Donald Shrum faced his own personal "War of the Worlds."
This stranger-than-fiction event took place in the ruggedly scenic foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the Tahoe National Forest. Into this remote wilderness stepped the 26-year-old Shrum, who planned to enjoy a relaxing weekend hunting deer with his bow and arrows. As he entered the forest, joking and laughing with his two hunting buddies, little did Shrum suspect that shortly he would be locked in the midst of a terrifying 12-hour struggle with alien forces. Armed only with his wits and one of mankind's most primitive weapons, Shrum expended every ounce of his strength in an all-night battle against invaders that seemed bent on overtaking him and carrying him away to a fate worse than death.
Come join us to hear this amazing story, based on detailed painstaking research that Ruben conducted over several years.
