Now she is looking for someone else to volunteer their time to help the Espanola Schools: "Do you know any SCIENTIST that is willing to go speak with the Espanola Middle School science class? Don't know if anyone has ever done it in the last few years. I do know that it has to be someone who is open-minded, treats people with dignity and respect, and is willing to take a few insults from kids that don't know any better. There are some kids that REALLY want to learn and need the advice, and the opportunity a scientist be able to open the door to. Thanks!" Therese J.

You do not need to be a LAWIS member to come. Children under 18 may not "go underground" at WIPP (their regulation; about 1 hour of the 4 hour tour), but otherwise are welcome. By popular vote, we will stay in a cheap hotel rather than try and camp. Re when to go down and when to return: there was enough interest expressed that I am thinking that even if we carpool we can probably have a few groups going down/returning at different times to accommodate different schedules/interests. So check your favorite times and I'll try and coordinate this. ------------------------------- APR 3 WIPP SIGNUP SHEET interest in the tour: ___definite ___maybe ( ___future ) interested in seeing WIPP Friday Apr 3, 12-4PM: ___YES ___NO interested in seeing Trinity site Saturday Apr 4 (all morning): ___YES ___NO interested in seeing Carlsbad Caverns ___Not interested ___just watch bats Fri evening ___Friday AM ___Friday PM (note conflicts with WIPP) ___Saturday AM (note conflicts with Trinity) ___Saturday PM ___Sunday AM if interested in seeing Carlsbad Caverns, interested in a tour to a less traveled part of the cavern? ___YES ___NO [the preliminary responses were heavily in favor: I'll see what I can arrange....] would like to go down ___Thu PM ___Fri AM ___Fri PM (skip WIPP) would like to return ___Sat PM ___Sun AM ___Sun PM ___Fri PM (skip Trinity) other info/comments:_____________________________________________ ========================================================================= Attachment 3: Sign-Up Sheet for All-Day Field Trip; Thu, Apr. 16 -------------------------------------------------- AM: Jemez Geology Field Trip; PM: Milagro Gamma Ray Burst Observatory Carol Hogsett, GRA Representative at LANL and geologist by training (you may remember the excellent talk she gave to LAWIS last fall), will be conducting a tour to the Jemez and the Milagro Gamma Ray Burst Observatory on April 16th for several SERS/URS students here at LANL. She has graciously volunteered to make this a LAWIS event as well. You do not need to be a LAWIS member to come. The field trip will last all day, and we will need to carpool since parking a bunch of cars along the road at the various stops can be tricky. Please send me (Tinka Gammel, email@example.com, 7-9149) the following info by April 7 if you would like to join this field trip: Apr. 16 LAWIS Field Trip Sign-Up Name:__________________________ Telephone:_____________________ Email:_________________________ I do not know if it is possible to join for only 1/2 the trip, but let me know if this would work better for you (and which 1/2: ___ AM/Jemez ___ PM/Milagro ). There is no limit to the number of people. All participants should bring a lunch and water. Depart 8AM, probably from Study Center (to be determined when we make carpooling arrangements). If you can't make it this time, but might like to go on either or both 1/2's of this trip at a later date, let me know: Carol is willing to lead another trip later this summer if there is interest. =========================================================================
