Chapter Dig Report 2014--08-31

Beautiful sifting this Labor Day Sunday 2014!

When an big and very quick bluish-black spider appeared on the screen and made a beeline towards Gary, was the first time any of us had seen him back up! He quickly regain his composure and provided a stick for the creature's escape.

Today's crew: Margaret, Steph, Gary, Barry & Clif.

Weather and schedules permitting, we'll see you next week!

Margaret, Stepth, Barry, Gary and Clif extending a shovel test pit line.

The dry conditions made for easy sifting, but not much evidence of early use.

See ya next Sunday, weather permitting!

2014-07-27 Dig…

Step, Gary & Clif arrived at the dig this morning, got set up, began sifting. Then it got so dark that we had to use a flashlight to examine the screenings. Shortly thereafter, a cloudburst sent us scurrying out. We'll return next Sunday - weather willing!

2014 Chapter Picnic

 A lovely couple.
 Howie sends one away…
 Then retrieves.
Do not mistake discipline for patience.
