PLSO BeerLegger in Portland, OR (?)

Who's up for a BeerLegger in Portland during the PLSO Conference? It runs January 22 thru 24, 2020.

I'm thinking Wednesday is the best day, even though there's an exhibitor's reception at 5pm. Thursday evening is the scholarship auction, so that will go late (plus it's a lot of fun). Friday is out because we've tried that before but most people wanted to go home by then. So as of right now, I'm thinking Wednesday night at 6pm at a nearby hangout, maybe the restaurant/bar in the hotel. Here's the schedule: https://www.plso.org/2020Seminars

What do you think? Anyone want to do this? I'm game.

It's at the Airport Sheraton, so it isn't exactly beer hall central. I'm sure that the hotel itself will be nice. You can put me down for that.

I will be at conference, BUT as an exhibitor will need to show up AFTER the exhibitor's reception.

Depending on when/where the meetup is, I'll try stopping by.  I'll probably start at the exhibitor social and make my way towards the Young Surveyors Network Meet-up.  

 

Cheers, Eli

We are going to try to be there early, maybe to grab a bite to eat at the hotel. I'd say just come over whenever you wanna come over. Hopefully we'll be there. Smile

I was thinking that this would be a nice trip for me and SWMBO, especially to meet some of the renegades on here. That is, until SWMBO reminded me it is JANUARY at the North Pole where the Convention is. My winter wardrobe ensemble consists of one pair of long socks and a windbreaker. I wouldn't make it. I'd have the "Big One" as soon as I stepped off the plane. Be nice to plan for a Beerlegger somewhere in a central location though. (where snow shows up for a day or so only)

The temperatures are very mild in the Pacific Northwest. We have 2 weeks of Winter; 2 weeks of Summer; and the rest of the time it's Spring or Fall.

Today's high will be 51 with scattered showers.

Come on up, it'll be fun!

It's not nearly that bad, as Radar points out. But January isn't the month I'd recommend for a first visit.

Hey, it's in the Pacific Northwest, not in Montana, Minnesota, or even Missouri.  It shouldn't be too bad there.   See HC's post this morning about temperatures in SE Kansas for weather to avoid (Iowa is similar today).

55/45 all week predicted. Gets a little windy up by the airport, but at least we won't have a repeat of the conference several years ago with a nasty "silver thaw" that made rinks and ice ruts out of the roads. Portland (puddletown) will be living up to its damp reputation though. Heck, we get used to it; I prefer it to blazing hot and/or blazing hot/humid.
