large collaboration report:

We observed the field of Swift GRB180314A (D'Avanzo et al. GCN 22478) on 
March 14, from 10:00 to 10:25 UT (mid time of 0.39 days post burst) with 
1-m and 2-m unit LCO telescopes in Siding Springs in the SDSS gri 
filters. We detect the optical afterglow (D'Avanzo et al.; Bolmer GCN 
22479; Lipunov et al. GCN 22481; Melandri et al. GCN 22482; Sbarufatti 
et al. GCN 22484) with the following magnitudes:
