Each August, archaeologists gather under open skies somewhere in the southwestern United States or northwestern Mexico. They set up a large tent for shade, and then spend three or more days together discussing recent research and the problems of the field and challenges of the profession. In recent years, Native Americans, avocational archaeologists, the general public and media organizations have come to mix with archaeologists. Individuals and groups play an increasingly important role, as participants and audience, helping professional archaeologists celebrate archaeological research and mark cultural continuity.
Program: Jim Potter, PaleoWest -- TBD -- Dolores Project or Basketmaker III
Join CAS members from throughout Colorado to hear great papers presentations and exchanges between avocational, professional and student archaeologists. Banquet speaker is always someone exceptional.

Trips & Special Events - Chapter Members Only
Saturday we will assist the Utes on a project to be determined. These usually involve clearing and/or improving trails to sites. Sunday we will join Ute guides to visit backcountry sites normally not open to public visitation. Camping will be available at no cost in the Park campground; however, commuting from Cortez is an option. The campground is primitive with basic pit toilets, picnic tables and adequate space for tents or trailers. Contact Tom Hoff firstname.lastname@example.org Participation will be limited, possibly requiring a lottery system depending on interest. We do not have further information at this time, and we will put out another notice which will include signup information when details become available.
Fix a pot of your favorite chili (red, green, white, or veggie) and join the fun in McElmo Canyon. If you’re not up to cooking chili, come with some snacks, salad, corn bread, or dessert. There will be stove space to warm up your creations and plugs if you bring a crock pot. Larry and Sandy will provide bowls, utensils, glasses, iced tea, and margaritas. Bring any other kind of liquid refreshment you want and your favorite outdoor chairs. Please RSVP 565-7804 or email@example.com
