Hello Members and Supporters:

We are planning on excavating at Creekside Village this coming weekend, Oct 15 & 16 again. The weather looks good for this coming weekend. We intend to continue efforts in the kiva (removing the fill from the SE ¼ to expose the floor, expose the bench, and hopefully find evidence of the entryway).Our previous weekend efforts were very productive as we began to expose the floor in the SE ¼ and were able to expose much of the bench face. We also have two pit structures in progress that we need to continue in if we have enough participants. Over the summer, I have been excavating shovel trenches to expose portions of a new ditch that we found earlier this summer. Nearly half of the large pit house that Dale Frost has been working in is open to view. Given the time of year, I anticipate that it will still be really nice, but accordingly for the heat/sun/cool mornings. We have two planks to serve as our bridge so you won’t have to get your feet wet. Let’s meet at the “y” in Tularosa at 8:30 am (old gas station at the intersection of US 54 and US 70). Please RSVP me by replying to this email if you are planning on joining us so I have an idea of how many to expect.

I will try to set up another weekend in November and will contact everyone when that has been firmed up. Remember, these are free programs supported by your membership. Also, visit our website for info on upcoming programs and events.

I have attached a membership form (if your membership has expired or is about to) and the Waiver form that each participant needs to complete (if you have already completed one, you need not complete another). Thank you to everyone who has renewed your membership last month. We really appreciate the support.

We also have Volumes 1 and 2 (collections of papers from the Tularosa Basin Conferences) available for sale. Volume 1 is $25.00 ($22.50 with current membership) and Volume 2 is $20.00 ($18.00 with current membership). Please include $5.00 for postage. The order form is also attached.

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at upcoming events. We thank you for your interest and support. Please feel free to share this information with your friends and associates.

Thank you, Dave
