    Who will be attending the FOSSIL Project mini-conference in June, in Cincinnati?

    I have a teaching engagement that I might be able to finish up by the beginning of June. If not, hopefully I can attend next time!

    I’ll be there! We’re going to have a lot of activities. We’ll be announcing the recipients of the Paleontological Society travel grant on April 15th, so we’ll have at least 10 people attending–oh and a bunch of the Dry Dredgers and North Coast Fossil Club members! ūüėČ

    @jkallmeyer recently informed me of the sad news that myFOSSIL member¬†@robert-marsh passed away on November 30, 2016. ¬†Bob participated in the Cincinnati Mini Conference this past June and his love for fossil collecting was highly evident. ¬†Due to health complications, he was unable to clamber over the rocks at our various field trip stops, but Bob’s niece¬†and other Dry Dredgers brought specimens back to his minivan where he enthusiastically inspected them with a portable electronic microscope. ¬†The FOSSIL team extends our deepest condolences to Bob’s family, friends, and all of the Dry Dredgers who knew him. Please see an image of his obituary attached.

    @egardner Thanks for posting. I attached a photo of Bob and Angelica from one of our Dry Dredgers meetings. Bob is in the center foreground wearing a hat and Angelica is seated close by wearing a yellow shirt and black jacket.

    @jkallmeyer¬†thank you so much for sharing this sad news. Bob seemed like a wonderful man who had a true passion for fossil collecting. I’m glad I got to meet him on the Cincinnati Mini Conference. My deepest condolences for the loss of one of your members.
