[ AzTeC / SWA SASIG ] :

Reunion Salmon Ruins Project/
Rio Puerco Project 1978 - 1998

Twenty years have come and gone
the big Reunion now is on ....

The San Juan County Museum Association is delighted
to announce the second Salmon Ruins Project Reunion.
This meeting of the former San Juan Valley
Archacolical Project members will also host its sister
project, the Rio Puerco Valley Project as a joint event
(no pun intended), particularly given that many staff
archaeologists worked on both projects. Plan your
summer around this reunion and bring your family. Show
them how many people you roomed with in a 16 x 16 cabin
(yes the living quarters still exist). Visit the Salmon
Ruin and reminisce about those deep rooms and that long
throw to hit the screen. Evaluate past and recent
projects in ruins stabilization. See slides of your
friends and colleagues... bring your slides too! Lonnie
Pippin promises to demonstrate his famous "spit and
roll" technique.
