Thank-you to all the wonderful dig-tour groups we had booked for our final week. During the past week, my group found a poorly-preserved mosasaur vertebra (but it was still grandly large), one of Kathryn's groups expanded and found more vertebrae from the mosasaur skeleton, and Matt's group found more fossils from the mosasaur, Angus, who was our big find in 2008!
Morden's big Corn & Apple Festival was this past weekend and the CFDC offered discounted dig tours to the public. One lucky family found a Hesperonis femur (thigh bone). And more skeletal elements from the mosasaur were also found! We also had a special visitor, Flora Marcelino, Manitoba's Minister of Culture, Heritage, and Tourism! Abigail Williams also visited us on the weekend, she was one of our paleostars who worked in the Death Assemblage in 2008.
On our last day the whole fossil crew went out to the field for one last adventure. And the year's final "Perfect Score" winner was decided... congrats Matthew Duda! For getting the highest rating museum and dig tours this month!
