2010 Field Report

Dinosaur Dreaming is pleased to announce that our 2010 Field Report has been published.  Friends and crew unable to attend the launch at the Museum last week should get theirs in the mail shortly.

Not that I'm biased or anything, but I think it looks great.  56 pages and over 20 separate authors.  Thanks to all contributors, to Alanna for layout, design and, well, making it all happen, and to Dave for letting us use his vollies for stapling and for giving us red wine and salty snacks when we really (really) needed them.

Testing the new dig house

This weekend, a small group of dinosaur dreamers gave the new Cape Paterson dig house a dry run.
Big backyard for tents
The house has a big downstairs area
And a veranda
We broke rock in Lesley's driveway
Anthony, Jillian and Paul work diligently
Peggy demoralises a rock.
We were a little distracted by the old newspapers used for wrapping the rocks that we reprocessed.

Andrew gets distracted by 2004
Jacqui reads an old quiz
Paul enjoys the sunshine
We did do some serious work! 
Jillian watches John and Anthony work

Mike guards a growing tower of empty boxes

My dino badge
Jacqui wins a FISH badge
Gerry shows support from the sidelines.
Dave feels the cold in the morning

The Field Report is coming along well.
