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.
