Oregon MUFON Events – September 9 & 11, 2012

Greetings to all MUFON members and friends.

You are all invited to join us for a picnic/skywatch on Sunday, September 9, at 2:00 pm at Molalla River State Park, just north of Canby, near the Canby Ferry crossing on the east side of the Willamette river. If you are planning to come, please reply giving the number of people you are bringing — yourself and family or close friend(s). I am planning to supply a main dish for everyone and I need a head count. If you want to bring a pot-luck item, please do, and let me know what you have in mind. I am planning to supply chicken legs and hamburger patties to grill, and buns and condiments to go with the burgers. I will also bring plenty of charcoal, paper plates, paper towels plastic cups and plastic utensils. BUT, my Weber kettle is not easily transportable. Does anyone have a portable charcoal or gas grill we can use in case we cannot occupy a picnic site that is equipped with a cooking fireplace?

Also if you are vegetarian, I suggest bringing a veggie/vegan main dish to share, please.

If you come, things to bring:
sun hat and sunscreen
rain shell or poncho, if you are a pessimist
sunglasses
folding chair(s)
a folding table if you have one you can bring
blanket for sitting on the ground
bug repellant
camera
binoculars
beverage of choice, or some to share (beer or wine okay in moderation)

Directions: Take Hwy 99E to Canby. Watch for Territorial Road, north of Canby. Turn west on Territorial Rd., following the signs to the Canby Ferry. Go almost 2 miles, then turn right at the stop sign on Holly St. Watch for the entrance to Molalla River State Park on the left.

Our regular MUFON meeting will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 11 in Muir Hall inside the Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church at SE Belmont and 55th. You may park in the church parking lot at 54th and Belmont, or you can get there on the Belmont Bus (#15). Walk up the steps (or use the ramp on the right) to the main doors facing Belmont. Inside the doors, turn left and watch for a door on the right with a sign above it saying “Muir Hall”. That’s the place.

At our September 11th meeting we will view one of the videos from the MUFON Symposium. I highly recommend Geraldine Stith’s presentation on the Kelly-Hopkinsville incident of 1955. Her father was one of the principal people involved in this very strange case. I will go through a list of the videos at the meeting and we can decide what we would like to view.

The Beaverton TC Max stop is about a mile from the library for those who are up for a walk.
