Hangover be damned! I was determined to make it back into the office today and sure enough here I am, Monday morning to report on the wild times in Oregon. After landing in Portland, I grabbed my rental car and hit the road for what I thought was going to be a 2 hour drive to Lincoln City. Instead of using my handy dandy Magellen GPS to lead the way though I decided to try and kick it old school with a map. 4 hours and countless stops for directions later, I did finally arrive at the Chinook Winds Resort.
The place was pretty damn swanky… much nicer than I expected. The last time I’d been to an Indian Casino was when I was in college driving through Palm Springs so I wasn’t expecting much. This place was like a mini-vegas hotel though. Anyway, I got checked in and somehow managed to pull a room with a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean.
After getting settled in I headed over to the APA room to check out the scene. Didn’t take too long to find her though… I just looked for the tallest girl in the room and like a beacon of light, there she was playing in some of the mini-tournaments the APA was running with drink in hand.
All I can say is that if you ever have the opportunity to attend a WPBA event, you will not be disappointed. Melissa Morris, Sarah Rousey and Debbie were even able to get me out on the dance floor which is something that hasn’t happened since my Bar Mitzvah. I also had the extreme pleasure of hanging out with the infamous OMGWTF who is just as funny in person as she is on her blog.
We’ll be helping Frank get his pictures up on Frank’s Blog in the next couple days, so be sure to stay tuned for that.
