I'm probably going to order prizes for the Portland Tournament early next week. I need to know my budget, so I need to know how many people will be there. If there is AT LEAST A 50% CHANCE that you will attend, please sign up here:


So far I've only got 15 attendees -- but that includes no less than FOUR 6-dans! Your mere proximity to this much power should make you stronger. Sign up now!

Details on the tournament are included below.

TRANSPORTATION: Parking on campus is free on the weekends. If you're coming from downtown Portland, you can take the Pioneer Express shuttle bus:


(Note that the shuttle route has changed slightly from last year.)

FOOD: Bon Appetit has a monopoly contract for all catering on campus, so it's a very bad deal for us to order coffee. Instead, we've discovered that there is a coffee shop (Maggie's) open on campus. The Fields Dining Room is also open for a buffet lunch. Info on both can be found here:


Note that Maggie's doesn't open until 10:00 AM on the weekend, so if you need an infusion of caffeine before your first round, bring something along.
