Thanks for posting this John. It helps me start to plan how these fit around college football and family commitments.

Do you have an idea of when we will know what topics the speakers will cover?

Does anyone know if the apple ID team ever follows up on apples that they weren't able to identify? I brought apples from 2 really old trees and a younger tree from an old farmsite along the Columbia river near Washougal, which is now part of the Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge. The team identified the younger tree as Red Delicious, but they were stumped by the older trees. They took my info, took some pictures, and said they would get back to me. I haven't heard anything yet, and I am wondering if they really do follow up?

The trees are pretty close to "Point Vancouver", which is where Capt. William Broughton turned around when he came up the Columbia river in 1792. On Oct. 30, 1792, he wrote:
Quote:
"I landed for the purpose of taking our last bearings; a sandy point on the opposite [north] shore bore S. 80 E. distant about two miles; this point terminating our view of the river, I named it after Captain Vancouver" (Voyage of Discovery, Vol. 2, p. 759).

He then proceeded to claim the Columbia river and all the lands that it drained in the name of Great Britain. At the time he thought that the source of the Columbia was Mt. Hood.
