Planning for the 2017 Field Season

Planning for a Field Season starts a long way in advance.  Tom Rich and Dave Pickering have been thinking about it for some time, and the first meeting of a few key organisers is scheduled for this weekend.  I expect we'll propose dates for our rookie training day and the ETRW season, and decide what to duplicate or change about such thing as equipment, transportation, fossil protection, and feeding/housing the crew.  I'll let you know if anything gets decided afterwards.

Dr Jack Horner to speak at Melbourne Museum

On 22 March, Dr Jack Horner is speaking at Melboutne Museum as part of the new Jurassic World exhibition: https://museumvictoria.com.au/melbournemuseum/whats-on/recreating-dinosaurs-for-our-future-world
I believe he has plans to create a Chickenosaurus.  That would be pretty cool.
