Myself and Sarah Tisdale were talking about getting together and working on setting up an event here in Portland. Of course we want to make sure that we don't overlap the Bellingham event.

If anyone in Portland is interested in working on this with us, please feel free to contact me via email: Rachael @ or Sarah @

I've emailed Michelle Schutte about this, but I know she is a busy lady, in hopes to have a direct Bellingham contact. If anyone in Bellingham would like to be involved in a Portland event, I would love that as well.

  1. rachael,

    it's looking like the bellingham event is shaping up for July 17-18, if that helps you out. i'm pretty sure any/all questions could probably be fairly well answered by brent cole (, nora hughes or myself (, as well as michelle. let us know if you need anything and we will do our very best to provide.


  2. Myself and my friend Kim are very interested in being involved on whatever level we can be on helping coordinating a Portland event! That would be great. There has been a couple other people that have posted on the blog interest as well, so lets make it happen!


  3. I'd love to help. I don't know what kind of event you want to do but I've got lots of contact in the musical/venue/band world.


  4. what dates would work for anyone in portland? I cant do the weekend of July 25


  5. I would like to help in any way I can. I won't be able to go to the bellingham event but I would love an opportunity to be with friends. I can play music, help with sound, organizing...

  6. I will email you both as well, but I am a friend of some of the family here in Portland. I am certain that there would be attendance for this event, and I would like to contribute as well. I'll be in touch!

  7. I am in the midst of sending out an email to everyone that has contacted me. Melissa, I do not however have your email address if you could either write me or post it here, I would love to be in contact with you. Thank you everyone who wants to be a part of this.


  8. Copy of email I sent out:

    First and formost thank you to every one that has contacted myself and/or Sarah T.
    I wanted to orginally plan for a meeting to get everyone together this Sunday, but Sarah T. brough it to my attention, that tomorrow is Father's Day.

    So because of that I have determined that next Sunday June 28th would be the next best time for a meeting.

    1st Meeting to be:
    Sunday June 28th, 2009
    The Bye and Bye
    1011 NE Alberta St
    Portland, OR 97211-4533
    (503) 281-0537

    I don't know what times work best for people or area's of Portland. Myself and Sarah T, both have Sunday's off. I chose the Bye and Bye because there is lots of room and this is also where recently myself and a group of Gunther and Donnkie's friends met to support each other. If for some reason this does not work for you or you can not make it (I know for people like Brian, who live in Camas, this might pose a problem) I will do my best to take notes and send out the information in a newsletter type fashion via email.

    Once again thank you everyone and I look forward to speaking to you, meeting you all in person soon. If need to contact me feel free to call or text me at 360-319-3058
