I just got off the phone with USGS CVO, the open house on May 4th this year has been canceled due to budget constraints.

Next year maybe.... :cry:

Aw! And some of my friends thought it sounded worth the trip!

Yes it's sad, I suspect they were /told/ to pull it off the website, as they didn't put up a cancelation notice there. The silly thing is it doesn't cost that much, and the public outreach does more to promote wise spending of tax dollars, then canceling it would save.

It's likely an example of the Washington Monument Syndrome (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_Monument_Syndrome). There's a lot of that going on right now.
