Skeptic Night investigation

Well, we had a “psychic night” investigation, it’s only fair we have a straight-up “skeptic night” investigation, too, isn’t it?  Of course it is!  While our psychic night investigation expresses itself as a hugely popular event simply by the sheer numbers of participants it draws in, the skeptic night investigation is set up in quite the opposite manner.  When we put on an event that somewhat mirrors the processes Maine Ghost Hunters uses during our own investigations we can’t have too many people involved or the potential EVPs collected during the investigation can’t be depended on as evidence.  So, as a general rule, we keep the participant numbers with skeptic approach investigations to a much smaller affair and, as a result, investigators are more likely to have collected data they can work with when they get home.  That is the goal, after all, isn’t it?  To collect data that hasn’t been contaminated or which is dependable in the review process?  Sure seems like a reasonable goal to me – but then again, that’s coming from a Maine Ghost Hunters’ perspective.  (guilty as charged!)
