Considering the date tomorrow, this event is going to be cancelled. Let's let our Inner Archaeologists out to play!
We'll meet at the designated dig field near Yekau Lake at 7:45PM to start our dig at 8:00PM.
If you're not trained in Archaeology that's okay, as we'll have a visiting guide, Saur Dinovich from abroad to help us learn and prevent any damage to the fossils we're looking for.
Expect it to be a bit cold, so ensure you dress for the weather!
Our hope is to unearth at least a good bone or two and have them represented in a museum claimed as found by EOC!
If you've got a dog, definitely bring it along, they can help us start getting the topsoil cleared off.
To protect your dog's feet from abrasion from the frozen topsoil, there will be Blow Dryers provided to thaw the first 8 inches of ground.

Since all participants so far are bringing dogs, instead of having the horse drawn carriage we're going to have the dogs tethered together to pull the carriage. Please do NOT bring carrots for the horse because the horse will no longer be there.

Required Items to Bring:

- Pick Axe
- Soft Bristled Brush
- Head Lantern
- Small Handheld Vaccuum
- Rubber Boots
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:Look for the coordinator with the Blue EOC cap, holding a large shovel and a bright Headlamp.

Because of the sensitive nature of this event, we'll only be able to arrive by Horse Drawn Carriage which will be waiting at the meeting spot so you can drive there and enjoy a rustic trip to the site.
