Hey folks,

I wanted to let you know about this awesome event I'm
helping to spread the word on.

The upcoming Vegan Vacation gathering was inspired by
the great folks from who
have yearly meet-ups. These meet-ups have generally
happened over in Europe and so Robert Cheeke of decided to organize a
gathering based in the united states.

This event will be taking place from August 3-9 in
Portland, Oregon USA

The basic idea is to have a get-together of the Vegan
Bodybuilding & Fitness forum members to hang out and
meet in person, but everyone is welcome! You dont even
have to be Vegan or into bodybuilding & fitness - just
come out for good times and to see what this is all

While the Vegan Vacation gathering is still in the
planning stages, there will definitely be a variety of
activities focused on fitness, great food, veganism &
generally having fun! Most events will be free or
low-cost. Organizers will provide as much free housing
and food as possible. YOUR assistance and ideas are

Originally, the Vegan Vacation location was going to
be Los Angeles, California. For a variety of reasons,
the gathering location has been switched to Portland,

So Why Portland?

Here's just a sampling of what Portland has to offer:

- Portland is the #1 Vegan Friendly City in America
- Portland is one of the most beautiful and clean
cities in America
- Portland is one of the fittest cities in America
with all kinds of outdoor activities during the
beautiful summer for athletes to take part in
- Portland is only an hour from the Pacific Ocean so
we can still "hang out on the beach"
- Portland has more vegan and vegetarian restaurants
per capita than pretty much anywhere
- Portland actually has vegan soft serve ice cream
that comes out of the machines (kinda like a Dairy
Queen, but vegan)
- There are many forum members in Portland and around
the region so we are sure to have a nice turnout and
lots of local tour guides
- Portland has lots of other attractions such as being

located near Mt. Hood and Mt. Saint Helens, Seattle,
Olympia, Eugene, Vancouver & Victoria plus all kinds
of great wild nature, rivers and mountains.
- Did I mention that we have Food Fight!, the ALL
VEGAN 7-11 type convenience store?1?

If you have any questions, please email Robert Cheeke
