End of Week 3
Wednesday, July 27, 2011
Today we decided to go prospecting in the morning to see if the rain from the beginning of the season uncovered any new finds. Lamont found a tooth from a tenontosaurus and Dr. Storrs found a juvenile ankylosaur tooth. The morning’s activities made most people tired, so around noon we decided to make our way back to the Mother’s Day Site.

End of week 2
With week two over, the participants are sad to leave. They removed many bones from the ground and found a couple large ones that the youth will have to get out next week. Two ulnas (forearm/elbow), several more vertebra, a couple of ribs, and more toes were removed. What could turn out to be a good sized humerus was exposed right before we had to leave the quarry yesterday. I am currently working on a scapula (shoulder blade) that is going to be rather large (it keeps going into the ground) and I will post pictures and update on its progress. The finally of the week was going to the pig races again, where Sophie got a real taste of the American West.

Week Two Participants
Goldstar Chili and The Cure Starts Now
The Cincinnati Dinosaur Field School would like to thank Charlie Howard and Goldstar Chili for their support of The Cure Starts Now (www.thecurestartsnow.org) and for giving participants the ability to come to the site. The Cure Starts Now is a great cause for fighting pediatric brain cancer and I recommend everyone to help out.
We would personally like to thank Charlie
Howard and Goldstar Chili for sending us many cans (48, I counted) of Goldstar chili; we will be well fed.
