Status of Siouan List

Just a friendly reminder that you are all invited to attend the Siouan Conference on June 20-21 at MSSU in beautiful Southwest Missouri (the fair city of Joplin to be exact).
Deadline for submission of Abstracts is not far away - May 12th!!
There will be an early-bird gathering on Thursday night, and sessions should run from 9-4 both Friday and Saturday. Papers can last 20 minutes, with 10 minutes for questions and discussion.
Fun activities may include visiting the Quapaw Casino nearby (or other Tribal Gaming Establishments)
Flights directly to Joplin are possible, but I suspect that Springfield/Branson, XNA (Fayetteville,Arkansas), or Tulsa airports are typically much more affordable, and each is about an hour from Joplin.
I will post hotel information next time, as I have to go attend my Social Science Department meeting right now.
