Combining my passions, part 2

I may yet end up moving to Portland, Oregon, with Bill and Todd. Portlanders love their beer, and love their alternative transportation. Bill sent this to me yesterday:

Subject: BTA mini-Digest: Tour de Fat is this Saturday!
Date: Thu, 17 Aug 2006 19:45:54 -0700
From: Michelle Poyourow
To: Michelle Poyourow

Don't forget - this Saturday is Tour de Fat, the big benefit bike and beer festival put on by New Belgium Brewing (makers of Fat Tire beer), at Waterfront Park just north of the Hawthorne Bridge. Come on down and have fun, or, if you like to earn your fun, we still need volunteers to help with the party.

The festival benefits the BTA and PUMP (the mountain biking group) - every dollar you spend on beer or t-shirts benefits the BTA!

Tour de Fat features:

--a bike parade, departing at 11 am, a costume contest, and bike limbo
--a corral of strangely engineered bikes you can try riding
--great live music
--great beers
--great company!

Taps open at noon and close at 7 pm.

Volunteer shifts that need to be filled are:

10:45-1 pm, at the front door
4:45-7 pm, at the front door
7-9 pm, tear down and a few other spots.

Volunteer and help support good biking in Oregon and SW Washington! Lend a hand if you can - email me to sign up.

See you on Saturday!
