That was me (Annie) and my dh (another Chuck). It was fun meeting Sparkers face to face, very nice. We stayed through all but the last 15 minutes of the concert. Great music, great weather, great venue.
Let's do it again sometime.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Enjoyed meeting Jory and sister coupled with the dogs. Cannot remember other couples name but nice people. Sorry I missed anne. I was about an 1 1/2 late due to traffic and missed the meeting area. This was my first time at Mt. Tabor Park. Nice park. Since I parked near Belmont and 60th I got in a good hike up to 69th st. and then up to the stage area. Great music and a "HUGE!!" crowd. Thank you Jory for spotting me as I was taking pictures to prove I was there.
I would like to do this again where we all could visit longer and get more people to participate.

Thanks Anne for starting this meet and greet. Until next time..Chuck

You can access Mt Tabor from 60th/Salmon (there is a light where you turn into the park from 60th (in between Belmont and Division). The road will take you to the top once you enter the park...Though, I believe you will want to access from Belmont as they are doing road work on 60th starting on July 19. You can also access from the eastside from Belmont. I live within walking distance to Mt Tabor so I will be on foot with my two puggle dogs.

What is the exact address of the Mt Tabor park. I pulled up an address on the computer but not sure it is correct. Is it the one on Park ave & Clay or the actual Mt Tabor?

Hi Jory,
I would like to come and meet more Sparkers but I get up early, get off work early and head to bed around 7:30. I'll look forward too the next weekend meet.

BTW, I heard you and Mike had a great time at the Biggest Looser day.

Count me in for a "meet up" on July 20 (I will wear one of my Spark t-shirts) -- Ive coordinated these types of meet/greets in the past for this team and they are a lot of fun...

speaking of which ... there are TWO WALKS this weekend that look like a lot of fun -- They have 5K and 10K options -- One is during the Gresham Art Walk tomorrow (July 17) and the other is a Sunday Parkway Walk (July 18) beginning at Lents Park. I will post details in the EVENTS thread!

Can we call it a SparkRally? I just read the article about that and I'm wondering. It seems any kind of a meet up falls into the category of an informal SparkRally of SP members.

Chuck, I'll bring my book, thanks for the reminder!!

I have informed 3 other Oregon Spark Teams about the Meet & Greet. There is some interest. I indicated to them this will be an informal gathering. Lets see where this leads us. Maybe something big!
If people do not have a Spark shirt maybe just wear something orange. Put a copy of the Spark Book sunder your arm. Good work Anne.

Let's Meet for the Tuesday July 20 Melao de Cuba concert at Mt. Tabor, SE 69th and Taylor.

Feel free to bring a blanket, picnic, your dog (on a leash), kids, whatever, let's just be a Spark Gathering, and no pressure, can't come, no worries. Please share this info with others.

Since the Official Portland team is so varied, I wanted to incorporate an activity that isn't necessarily food or exercise related, and if all you want is to meet & greet, I'm setting down my blanket at 6, um, where? I don't know. I think the concerts are where the volcano pit is. I don't have a Spark t-shirt yet, I haven't earned it yet, that's a reward I want to give myself after I've lost a bit more!! You will know me because I'm the woman with the silly smile. You can't miss me!!

And again, it is free.
Please check online for more information about Mt. Tabor concerts, I just googled Mt. Tabor concerts 2010 if you need directions etc.

Hope to see you July 20 @ 6:30!

Concert sounds good but I will be out of town until the 11th of July. If I get to Mt. Tabor I will have to walk the trails, I hear it is a nice walk. But whatever activity everyone chooses I will just get there early enough to get my walk.

I checked out the links to other teams, the Hood to Coast, for instance, but I don't want to join another team to meet other people. Just keeping track of the teams I have joined is enough for me.

I saw a post on Facebook that at Mt. Tabor there are free concerts beginning July 6, is that interesting to anyone, getting together for a concert in a few weeks? It would be a good activity especially since we don't know one another. There's salsa music to look forward to, let me know, happy 4th! Anne

Mt Tabor sounds great, I'll go anywhere I can get to within reason, later in the month sounds like it could fit better into many people's schedules-I haven't posted this on any other local team because I don't want to join another team!! LOL!! Please feel free to pass along what we're thinking about this SP meet up! I'll check back later, Ane

Mt Tabor is great because it's so central to the whole Portland area

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Anne...Sounds like fun! I have no idea where Mt. Tabor is located but Washington Park I know, near the Zoo right? Have you posted this same information on the Hood to Coast team as well? I will be out of town between July 6-llth. Hope I can be involved somehow.

An evening gathering at Mt. Tabor Park is one suggestion, it's fairly easy to get to from I84 or I205. I know that their group spots for weekends are already booked for the summer.

Is anyone interested in meeting in person for a Spark Gathering of local SP? Maybe gathering at a farmer's market, at Washington Park to see the Rose Garden or some other location? It would be fun to see others face-to-face and celebrate some of our success? Saturdy in the Park, anyone? This July? 1-2 hours, what do you think? The response will depend on when this can happen. Looking for feedback...
