As with any week at the Pole, activities involved a mix of work and play. First and foremost last week, voting results were announced from this year’s Winter Antarctic Film Festival. Congratulations are in order for the South Pole station, who garnered a tie for first place in the screenplay category and took a second place in acting. The week also saw some maintenance on a large Cat loader, research undertaken on snow depth measurements for IceTop, and a little cabling cleanup at the IceCube Lab. Pranks around the station with a found Nerf gun rounded out the fun and excitement.
