The Annex crossover room was renamed "The atrium room" due to some confusion over the phones. The French word etrier for the webbing ladder used to climb up the ledge was misinterpreted as the atrium.

There was TV coverage in Cape as well as newspaper coverage on Perryville and Cape Girardeau. MMV also scored a detailed map of the sinkholes and drainage in Perryville.
