Hello list members, this is an invitation to a meteorite event at Cascadia Meteorite Laboratory at Portland State University in beautiful Portland, Oregon.

For over ten years, we have held fun, successful fundraising banquets, sales and auctions to raise money to support the work done at C.M.L. (Cascadia Meteorite Laboratory). In the early years, the events were held here at my home featuring wonderful steaks, salmon and vegetarian on the grill. The wine and beer flowed endlessly in an effort to warm up the bidding. The auctions have always been great fun. Many of you may know our auctioneer Peter Abrahams. He is very well known in Astronomy circles and a long time meteorite collector. Peter handles the auction in a unique, intellectual and entertaining fashion. Your guaranteed to enjoy his style.

The CML meteorite event quickly outgrew my home and has moved to the university. Just as CML has taken on a life of its own and grown into a substantial institution, we hope that this event will grow in size.

This is an invitation to all members of the international meteorite community: researchers, curators, educators, dealers, hunters and collectors. In the future we hope to have a large vendor area, displays and lectures, food, drink, friends, trading, auction and field trips to places like our local active volcano (Mt St. Helens) and the Columbia Gorge. For you beer lovers, Portland is referred to as the microbrewery capital of the world!

If you wish to be one of the pioneers and attend the first of this new era of CML events, please contact us through the link above.

There will be selling tables for dealers who wish to attend this year's Spring 2015 CML event.

Please support the lab with a visit to the beautiful Northwest and Portland, the river city!

Edwin and Patrick
