OK, these aren't big events, but if you end up traveling to the Portland area for whatever reason, come check it out. For some people it's a serious race, for others it's just weekly paceline training, and for others it's just fun to skate on one of the smoothest tracks in the country. PIR was repaved this winter, and it's unbelievable! We got to test it out at the grand re-opening party in February. Bring your Matter Yellows or maybe even some 89a track wheels -- it's really fast!

The 'official' announcement for the 2008 season is copied below:
