Right Here in Elgin Park!

Broady Road heads north out of Elgin Park for about 5 miles but was never completed; it just dead ends in the middle of the woods. It was at that very spot that Nick Florian, Chad Warwick and Sheila Burk found the crashed UFO.

"It was sticking in the ground without any damage" recalled Nick. "And there wasn't any sound coming from it. Come to think of it, the whole place was pretty damn quiet."

Sheila allowed that the three of them threw some stones at it and Chad tried to kick it, but his foot couldn't get any closer than a few inches from the shiny surface.

"Probably some sort of force field" said Chad. " I've seen enough of those kind of movies to know what this is all about."


The space ship was gone by the next day with only the gash in the road giving any indication that something had been there.

The rumors and gossip spread throughout the town over the next few weeks but it was NOT officially reported.

The consensus was

summed up by Chad when he said:

"Like I told you, I've seen stuff like this in movies and didn't want the authorities crawling all over the place."


This has since become the hot spot to hang out and has been unofficially renamed UFOdy Road.
