Karen (Cruisin-K), would you mind keeping an eye on the list while I'm onboard Quantum this week? I'm leaving tomorrow AM, and will be back on Friday. Not expecting much movement or updates in such a short time, especially mid-week, but it always seems that there is a major shakeup or announcement when I'm away!
Definitely a slow week. Everyone is probably waiting until you get back and then you'll be bombarded with updates

It's really too soon to know the assignments for next summer.

My guess: If Casey is returning in mid February, and it is a typical 4 month contract, then he will be off in mid June, and the fill-in CD will be onboard for the following 2 months.
