Summer 2019 Portland Pente Summit
Posted: Jun 4, 2019 8:03 PM

Based on the inexplicable preponderance of strong pente players in the state of Oregon, and the lucky fact that watsu is planning a June trip to PDX, I am proposing a Portland Pente Summit, continuing a tradition started perhaps by Brf?

Date: TBD (interested parties please reply with dates of availability)
Location: TBD (most likely a Portland bar)
Invitees: Everyone who can make it, especially the following people who are ostensibly going to be in the area:

watsu
brf
haijinx
gaylen
hybrid
pete777

Anyone else? Let's start planning.

It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.

I'll be in Portland between the 8th and 19th. I think my brother in law has a chess clock. Guess I should pack my red tube, eh?

I don't want to play non tournament rules games. If you take one of my unrated invites, play tourney

Sorry not to reply before...my out of state family just left today (son's graduation last week).

I'm available off and on during the rest of that time, have a couple boards, and at least one functional chess clock. That said, with next weekend being my son's birthday and father's day, I'm more available during the week.

Excellent! I'm going to be in Portland Friday through sunday. I should have a board and stones with me. Friday and Saturday are best for me. Watsu has recommended the following venue in Sellwood:

thelivingroombyadsideo.com

I could be persuaded to meet there.

Format: 50% regular, 50% Boat, 50% speed, the remainder by popular demand.

Wish I could.
I never would have been anything but cannon fodder, but drinking beer and playing games...I'll go lots of places.
Hoping others try something similar. Just more notice
I need time to find affordable flights and board the pets.

We're planning a gorge trip tomorrow, so Saturday seems like the best option.

I should be able to play between the hours of say 1-6pm tomorrow. Gaylen, haijinx, anyone else able to make it?

Regretfully, I can't this weekend...I can get up to Portland early next week to see watsu and whoever else is around. I'm sure I can get down to Eugene some time soon.

The things we learn to take for granted in online Pente if we haven't played OTB in many years are interesting. For example both players having the same overhead perspective of the board position without a rotation and the time and care it takes to place, adjust and remove stones from the board...

I was visiting a friend up the hill from Rainier OR last weekend with no internet and then came through Portland on the 17th. Then I remembered meeting up for pente only after I was on the road South of Portland. If Watsu or any players (pente or chess) would like to stop by I am easy to find. 11 miles South of Cottage Grove on I-5. Take the Curtin exit, turn right, take the left curve across the tracks, turn into the first driveway, take an immediate left and look for my red Hhr. But message me first for phone number!
