    Posted: November/04/12 at 11:59am


Come join us for a drive to the Edgefield hotel in Troutdale OR to welcome in spring on the weekend of April 27/28. We will be taking a nice long drive down to Portland and spend the night at the Edgefield Hotel in Troutdale. Edgefield is one of the flagship McMenamin properties. It has 2 restaurants about 5 bars, a spa, and a 12 and 20 hole par 3 golf course.


We are announcing this so early because is very difficult to get room at the Edgefield on a Saturday so if you think you might want to attend, make reservations now! They do not charge your card and you can cancel with no penalty up to 48 hours before you arrive. So it costs nothing to reserve your place. It can be done on-line at the link above or call

Rooms are $90 (Queen) to $114 (King). All rooms have the bathroom down the hall. They have big fluffy bathrobes in the rooms and most of the bathrooms are private so it works pretty well.

Stay tuned for more information but this should be a fun weekend!

If you want to join us but don't want to or can't stay at the Edgefield, there is a Best Western just down the road about 1/2 mile. Rooms run about $109.
So who is in? Make your reservations now!

There is no room block. We would have to rent a dining hall, and that came with a host of issues.

So how are the common bathrooms? for people who have been. I tried to book a room with a private bathroom, but they were all taken! So I assume the common bathrooms are multiple full bathrooms? the doors lock and such for when ur using them and all? or is it like a bath house O.O lol!

There are a couple types. On the first floor the showers and baths are behind doors and closed compartments in the mens room with stalls and urinals like any regular bathroom. Don't know about the women's. On floor 2 and 3 the bathrooms have showers or a tub and sink and are private rooms that you can lock and shower with your sweetie. There isn't a separate mens and woman's bath. You see lots of folks wandering to the bathrooms with their bathrobes on so it doesn't feel weird.  The bathrooms are actually quite nice.

updated the guest list in the first post. If anybody is considering going on this drive, make reservations now. Edgefield fills up quickly on the weekends and reservations are hard to get. But they are easy to cancel if you find you can't make it. Reserve now with no deposit and cancel at least 48 hours before your scheduled arrival with no risk.

See details in the first post.

Would love to attend but that's opening race weekend for Conference that weekend at PIR. Might be able to stop by for a brew after the race though! Stop by the track for a bit on Sat or Sun for a field trip ! ;)

The homepage lists all events within a 60 day time window (might even be 45 days, I don't recall), so unfortunately this event is too far into the future to show up.

When I get back to my desktop I'll add a link to this event in the homepage news section.

Still rooms available. Reserve a room if you are considering going. There is no obligation if you cancel 48 hours before expected arrival.

The Mrs and I were talking about this trip today...we're very excited.

I know the specific schedule is still TBD. But will anything we do on Sunday take us terribly far from the PDX area? We're considering extending our stay in the area an additional night...

Thanks in advance

Regarding the question mark next to Elliott's name, sorry little dude, this one is adults only.

I was also curious about the shared bathroom set up prior to staying, but we were on the second floor with totally private full baths.  Very nice.

We made an initial run this weekend. We are going to do a coast run with a lunch in Astoria. We found a great place for a mid morning stop with great seafood. Oyster shooters and shrimp cocktail for good prices and very fresh. We have a fun lunch stop in Astoria. 

We have found some good twisties and some not so good gravel roads ( that we are not going to do). We will be doing some more checking around, but this looks to be a very fun run.

Stacie and I will unfortunately have to bail on this one.  We will be attending a wedding of a friend that weekend plus there's some other things going on during that time period as well.  We've known about the wedding for a while but hadn't sat down with the "save the date" fridge magnet and the computer until yesterday.  

We've reserved a room but will put it in somebody else's name if there's a member who hasn't booked a room yet.  They may be tough to get at some point so PM us and we'll hand our room off to you.
