Thanks for a Great Open House Weekend
Yesterday was the last day of the field season and the last of our open house days. We saw about 190 people on Saturday and another 220 or so on Sunday. That’s over 400 people visiting a site in a county of 2,000. Not too shabby. Overall, we had at least double the number of visitors as last year, and if it wasn’t for the rain last weekend and the timing of the local news stories coming after the first weekend already occurred, we would have easily tripled or quadrupled that number.
So thanks everyone for visiting the site and showing interest in our work and the Cliff mine. The timing of my posts run about 3 weeks later than current time so there are still a lot of posts and photos yet to come of our work. Plus updates on our findings and announcements about upcoming talks to be given (by me and others) in the coming months. Both the Keweenaw and Ontonagon County Historical Societies have requested talks for this summer and fall so stay tuned.
This was an extremely successful field season. I am excited (and frankly scared out of my wits-this is some complicated stuff) to get working on processing data, and then start planning for next season.
