Run Planning meetings will be held daily starting on Monday. They will be at 8:45 am in the Counting House.

Collaboration Meeting

Mahmoud will give a start counter talk on Friday afternoon. He will be at JLab.

Calibration Update

Mahmoud is working on the attenuation algorithm to get ready for the upcoming run.

Run Readiness

Eric went through the Hot Check-Out procedure both before and after the target cart was inserted into the detector. This includes taking data with the cosmic self-trigger and looking at monitoring histograms from the resulting data. All channels checked out fine both times. Mark moved the start counter in the detector category to "ready" in the system.

NIM Paper / TDR contribution

When Eric is done with final thesis edits he will turn to condensing the relevant chapters in to a detector paper. He also would like to revise the current section of the TDR on the start counter based on his thesis material.
