The guidebook is now available online, at http://pubs.usgs.gov/of/2007/1281/. Remember, you need to print your own copy for the field trip!
Pre-registration closed on Thursday afternoon, Sept. 27. Those of you who registered later than Sept. 12 may not get a T-shirt, or at least not in the size you wanted. If there is enough demand, we will probably order more; details will be available at registration on-site.
The proposed add-on trip to southern Death Valley on October 8 has been postponed, possibly to winter break this year. Contact John Caskey (email@example.com) if you are interested.
Information will be distributed on this website; announcements regarding updates to the website will be made using the Pacific Cell Yahoo! group; if you want to receive update announcements make sure you are registered by sending your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Send questions to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. The guidebook will also be posted for download on this website before the field trip.
