The drillers put new cutters and shoes on the drill in the morning. The first drill run with the new cutters and shoes produced 86 meters (according to the driller's depth) of rubble ice. These shoes were switched out with a more aggressive set of shoes and we were back to getting good core quality.

Drill depth: 119.28 meters
