Wanderers in Eugene

I'm thinking Portland's version of Wanderers has evolved to a self-sustainable state, such that a copyable template might serve in other cities up and down the Willamette Valley, perhaps some of them to one day enjoy faster passenger rail service (still calling it Amtrak?).

What this might look like in practice, is a bunch of people sitting around a table (indoors or outdoors) at that McMenamins on High Street, another eGroup, website, snacks & beverages fund.

I've sent some ideas for branding, mug and T-shirt type stuff (clever slogans mostly).

I'll probably be specializing in these out-of-PDX operations, on the assumption that our top management here has it all handled.

Tacoma another focus.
