6pm to 9pm.  I'm crossing my fingers for dry weather, I'd like to use the outside south plaza boulder field for an hour or two by headlamp.  We'll also use the anchor-boards inside the basement.

I wish I could make this open to everyone, but I'm limited by student-instructor ratios, so I need to keep this to just who I've worked with before.  Thank you everyone for understanding!
