Recorded at the CDF detector: the first proton-antiproton collisions in preparation for Collider Run II of the Tevatron, on 02 Oct 2000 at 23:21:42 (11:21:42 PM Central Time). The Early Bird Report summary of beam activity, filed by Main Control Room crew chief Darren J. Crawford, noted: Pbar tune-up for shots began at 12:00 and lasted till 13:40. The first pbar shot was injected into the Tevatron at 14:47. Shots to the Tevatron continued into the evening shift. An 8 pbar-on -1 proton store was established. The store was aborted at 19:04 when the A1 line ion pumps tripped off and the bad vacuum propagated into the Tevatron FZero section. The remaining 9 mA of antiprotons in the Pbar Source were used in loading another 8 pbar X 1 proton store. The store was cogged for collisions and CDF reported detectable luminosity. The store was monitored through the owl shift. Retiring
