Please keep a running tab of all polarized target work to do in the foreseeable future.  Lets keep things moving and make the most of our time at Fermilab.  Anyone can add tasks here.  Once a task is complete please comment on its completion and leave enough information for someone else to find the item, continue the work, or know the situation status.  When possible make an entry in the ECL logbook about that task being complete with the nessisary details.  If you purchased and received the item post here where it can be found.
