7:00pm
Welcome Nathan Jones back from his wildly successful Trans Am Bike Race, which he organized and also completed.

We'll do a miniature victory lap here in Portland starting at Colonel Summers Park (a full lap would require we all ride from Astoria to Yorktown). Then have some beers at Velo Cult Bike Shop or some such beer monger.

It's short notice and there are other contenders (like Eric Helwig) who are still finishing the race so we'll probably need to have an official party at some point, as well.
