New Mexico Mycological Society
  Pat Brannen Memorial Foray

• Dates: 2o-23 August, 2o15
• Location: Sipapu Ski Resort

Foray Schedule
• As is traditional with NMMS Forays, there was no scheduled meal on Thursday. However, several participants brought a potluck dish to share, which resulted in a pretty impressive feed Thursday evening. For those who preferred, the Restaurant at Sipapu was open until 8pm.
• Foray Check-in began at 4 pm on Thursday, Aug 20.

• At the time of this Foray, there was no phone service at Sipapu, and Cellular signals tended to be unreliable. Verizon seemed to work--we were not sure about other providers. Cell signal availability may have changed since then.
