I am willing to go anywhere reasonable for the clinic. But since no one has found a better spot yet, I'll keep selling the Washington County Fairgrounds. I used the ruler on Google Earth to learn that the field is about the same area as the Delta West field (about 6 acres). It does have a couple of trees, but they are easy to avoid. (They have been trained not to chase kites!) Now if we could only order the wind from yesterday to show up for the clinic.


I'm in total agreement...

Also, it's only 1/3 mile from a MAX (light rail) station which works really well for Eli, TK and I (coming via public transit from North Portland).

On the down side, it looks like a one hour forty minute ride (nearly 2 hours) from my house. :kid_frustrated:

We'll rough it necessary, but it'd be a real blessing if anyone has room for 3 people from Killingsworth and I-5. :innocent:

Let's go ahead and make it official.

Click here for directions to Washington County Fairgrounds in Hillsboro, OR

Start around 10am or so, until we feel like we're done, both Sat and Sun. ;)

Again, no fee, but voluntary donations are welcome!

I've wanted to check out the fairgrounds for quite a while anyway. :)
