In the third quarter of 2010, three classes were completed or are in progress in Denver, Glen- wood Springs, and Loveland. One other course was cancelled during the quarter due to insufficient enrollment, for Field and Laboratory Photography in Grand Junction, and another course on Perish- able Materials in Pueblo was rescheduled for October due to illness. Enrollment ranged from 10 for the Rock Art Studies class in Glenwood Springs, to 18 for the on-going Historical Archaeology course in Loveland. There are no new PAAC certificates to award this quarter.

As noted in the last quarterly report, the PAAC training survey at Antelope Gulch in Fremont County this past summer was the third session for that project, resulting in coverage of roughly 230 acres with 24 sites and two IF’s newly recorded. Site form preparation has commenced with help from summer volunteers who have been sent copies of the field forms. Toward that end, a site form workshop was held at OAHP on September 29, with a second workshop scheduled in late October. Only one Denver chapter member attended the first workshop, although several volunteers have signed up for the session to be held on October 23. A summary report on the work at Antelope Gulch will be presented at this annual meeting; lab analyses will focus on the 34 lithic artifacts col- lected on the survey.

Speaking of which, on the PAAC web site (www.coloradohistory-oahp.org/ programareas/paac/ certreq/labcreditb.htm), you will find a list of the 15 dates in December and January scheduled for
