True, I was assuming the same times as our regular meetings (7pm to 
9pm), but it would probably vary for a meeting in Wilsonville.

A ride to Tualatin or Tigard (76 & 78 to Beaverton from there) would 
work perfectly fine for me since I live in Hillsboro, but I guess it 
would depend on the meeting times...
