NOTICE TO PECOS CONFERENCE ATTENDEES

Due to a very recent decision by the state that is beyond our control,
liquor will NOT be served at the traditional Saturday night barbeque, 16
August.  Sorry, folks.

Tom Windes
Pecos Chairman

[ Bill Rathje and Mike Schiffer will be crushed to learn that
archaeologists will be unable to freely practice distintive discard
behaviors which might leave marker horizon diagnostics which could be
seriated. Then again, a sudden change or hiatus in the nature of the midden
deposits might have behavioral meaning too...hmmmmm.... I have not faced a
blue law since I was a flyboy in West Texas twenty-five years ago; there,
we had to bring our own bottles to the nightclub and buy the set-up.  I
would not have expected this news... EVEN FROM UTAH ! Everyone stock up
before you travel -- it could be a long weekend. --  SASIG Ed. ]
