Who else is going?
Do you want to carpool with us or share our train ride (we'll take the train of there's no one that wants to share the driving)?
Also, does anyone know if there are cheap motels near the event? I'm taking 3 days off from teaching to attend. And if I'm going to take 3 days without income, I would prefer not to spend $80 per night for one of the fancy hotels listed on the ball's website. Plus I'd rather have that money for Norwescon just 2 weeks later. So I'd like to make this trip as inexpensive as possible so I can save for Norwescon. Where can we stay in Portland near the Melody ballroom for cheap?
