From: Ann Howard

This message is a follow-up to the message that the Arizona SHPO put out on
the web last week regarding setting the dates of the 1998 Archaeology Expo
in advance of the kick-off planning meeting for 1998 Arizona Archaeology
Awareness Month.  As you may recall, we were trying to get the Expo listed
in the Arizona Office of Tourism's Calendar for March 1998 and the
information was due on June 2, 1997.  Thus, we were soliciting input on how
you all thought the dates of March 14-15 would work out.

Thank you to those who responded to our query regarding this issue.  Half 
of the responses said that a date of March 14-15 (Sat. and Sun.) was fine,
but the other half felt that a Fri. and Sat. worked best for Expo
participants.  

Based on these responses, and in consultation with Kim Huber at the Deer 
Valley Rock Art Center, we decided that we should NOT change the structure
(i.e., go from a Fri/Sat back to a Sat/Sun) of the Expo dates without
involving the planning committee that comes together on July 21, 1997 for a
kick-off meeting in this decision.  Therefore, we decided NOT to post
definite dates for the Expo in the Arizona Office of Tourism's Calendar for
March, 1998.  HOWEVER, we did get the Expo listed in the Calendar with the
prefix "tba" which means "to be announced" and a phone number for contact
at Arizona State Parks.  So, it's listed, and if the public or the media
want to find out the dates, they can call ASP and receive the days/dates
(after they are decided at the July 21st meeting).

Just to keep you posted, and hope to see you all at the July 21 meeting
(10:00 a.m., Arizona State Parks Basement Boardroom)!  Thanks for your 
continued support of AAAM and the Expo!
