We report on efforts to establish an ongoing program of blazar monitoring at Pomona College’s Table Mountain Observatory, located at a dark site near Wrightwood, CA. The telescope is equipped with both optical and, more recently, IR CCD cameras with standard filter sets. The first such observations were carried out in the spring of 2000, with more extensive VRI observations during the summers of 2002 and 2004. This work was funded in part by SURP grants from Pomona College.
