From: Ian Thompson  

Once again it is time to start thinking about the biennial Big Meeting at 
Crow Canyon (Big MACC), Saturday, February 8, 1997.  The meeting is open to 
all and provides a forum for discussing current research in the Four Corners 
region.  This year people's schedules are so full that we decided to reduce 
the meeting to a one-day event, which we feel compelled to call the Little 
MACC.  As always, however, we are looking forward to your enthusiastic 
participation in thought provoking presentations and discussions.  We will 
continue to allow ample time for questions, comments, and maybe even some 
answers.  In order to organize the discussions, we need some feedback from 
you about presentations you would like to make or topics you would like to 
discuss.  Soil Systems recently completed their work on the Ute Mountain 
irrigated lands project, and there is a lot of interest in hearing about 
what they found and what they found out. The Soil Systems folks have agreed 
to give us a two hour overview of the project, which included sites ranging 
in age from early Archaic to historic Ute.  If you would like to make a 10 
to 15 minute presentation on current research in the Four Corners region, 
let us know and we will try to fit everybody in and arrange a sensible 
schedule.  Little MACC will be held at Crow Canyon on Saturday, February 8 
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The registration fee of $25 includes lunch, snacks, 
and refreshments after the meeting.  If you'd like, you can stay in the Crow 
Canyon Lodge the evening before, or after, or both for an additional $20 per 
night.  All registration and fees will be collected at the door, so you do 
not need to send any money at this time.  We would like to know how many to 
expect, so please return the registration form below to me by JANUARY 31, 
1997!  I look forward to seeing you at the Little MACC.  Attendance at the 
Little MACC is open to all interested parties.  So please feel free to pass 
this notice on to others who might like to attend.  Hope to see you on 
February 8!
