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.
