LUNCHEONS
We will continue the practice initiated in Iowa City of asking registrants
interested in luncheon discussions to specify on the registration for
topics they would like to discuss.  We will post lists of individuals with
related interests in the registration area in the UMC, and discussion
participants can choose the time and place for lunches.
    
LITHIC RAW MATERIAL EXCHANGE
We will continue the exchange of lithic material from the Plains and
adjacent areas initiated at the Iowa City meeting. The exchange will be
held on Friday, November 21 from 5-7 pm.
    
IELD TRIPS:
Due to the unpredictability of Boulder weather in November, we have
scheduled a limited number of trips to close and relatively accessible
locations:

Lamb Springs:  Late Pleistocene and Cody through Historic age site
excavated by the Smithsonian in the 1960s and 1980s; currently owned by the
Archaeological Conservancy and under study by the Denver Museum of Natural
History.
    
Magic Mountain: Archaic through Woodland/Early Ceramic age site excavated
by Cynthia and Henry Irwin in 1950 and 1960; currently being reexcavated by
Centennial Archaeology.
