This weekend we will visit Flat Rocks with more than 20 new volunteer applicants for the 2014 dig season. We'll put them through their paces, showing them how to tell the spot bone in the rock, carry equipment up and down the stairs, move rocks and bucket water. I'm not sure whether we'll do the traditional dig-a-big-hole-in-the-sand or not; that skill is far more useful at Flat Rocks than Eric the Red West. It will be a fun but full-on day. We may even find some good fossils.
