Dave Douglas

  Previous two weeks (Oct 26-Nov 9)
    - LERF: Fall two week restart/operations run (organization, documentation)
  Next two weeks (Nov 9-23)
    - LERF: Fall two week restart/operations run (organization, documentation),
      beam reanimation
    - LERF: energy recovery analysis for DarkLight - accommodating beam
      scattering in target (needs matching/coupling compensation as
      described above)

Chris Tennant

  Previous two weeks (Oct 26-Nov 9)
    - LERF: operations
    - ASML: mostly completed various aperture studies for lattice
      3.0.0, still investigating some "mysteries" in results,
      computing uBI gain in compressor arcs

      behavior of transporting a magnetized beam in TStep/PARMELA)
  Next two weeks (Nov 9-23)
    - LERF: operations
    - ASML: repeat aperture study analysis for lattice 2.1 (if
      lattice becomes available and time is available)
