I just received this e-mail and figured I would pass it along. Fortunately, me and Ninjasmoker live in Oregon, so we will be there for sure:
Dear NORML Supporters,
At the busiest and most productive time in the cannabis law reform movement's history, there has never been a better time to attend a national NORML conference!
The 39th annual national NORML conference will be held September 9-11, 2010 at the historic landmark Governor Hotel in downtown Portland, Oregon.
This year's annual conference is expected to be a quick sell-out because there are a limited number of rooms at the host hotel and conference registrations available than previous national conferences in San Francisco, Berkeley and Los Angeles.
The conference registration, list of speakers and agenda will not be released for a few weeks, but if you really want to attend this year's conference in Portland I suggest doing the two following items ASAP:
* Save the dates on your calendar
* Reserve your room(s) at the beautiful and centrally located Governor Hotel (all rooms have balconies and allow smoking)
NORML has negotiated excellent room rates at this historic registry hotel:
* Superior Room ($147/night)
* Deluxe Double or King Size bed ($157/night)
* Junior Parlor Suite ($166/night)
Reserve your room right now for NORML 2010 in Portland by calling 503-241-2109, and please indicate 'NORML 2010 Annual Conference' to receive the discount.
Procrastination will not pay! If you snooze, you lose! First come, first served!
Thanks again for all your help and support reforming America's antiquated cannabis laws, and NORML's staff and I look forward to seeing longtime supporters, along with new ones, at the organization's 39th annual national conference in beautiful, progressive and cannabis-friendly Portland, Oregon this September.*

**Double Bonus: Hempstalk, the largest pro-cannabis rally in Oregon, which is held at a beautiful state park at the confluence of the mighty Columbia and Willamette Rivers, is the same weekend as NORML's national conference!**
