Oh, and in case that sounds totally unlike your normal cup of tea...there are people cooking up piping-hot Belgian waffles in the tents around the racecourse. Yum!
(Note--this event will be taking the place of our normal 3rd-Saturday sketching meetup.)
Here's the scheme:
- 9:30 am: Meet at the Delta Park/Vanport MAX station (on the yellow line).
- Walk over to the Portland International Raceway, about a 20 minute stroll.
- Scope the scene, snack on Belgian waffles, watch bike people whoosh around, sketch!
- Wander back to the MAX train around 1:00?
Rain is predicted, please dress for the weather. There will likely be some pop-up tents for the event but I don't expect much in the way of more formal types of shelter.

(If you want to see the folks racing on unicycles, you'll have to get there earlier in the morning!)
