    I am determined to set up a group in Oregon to trade Disney pins. I live on the coast in Florence, so Coos Bay, North Bend, Eugene, Springfield, or even some where between here and Portland. I go to California and get pins every few months, we could start a great trading group. Who wants to join? Please let me know so we can set it up for March or April, 2015.

    :anxious:

    My family lives in Silverton and are light pin traders. We might be interested in going to a Eugene/Springfield for an event (will get me back to Cabela's as well!)

    Keep me in mind and if schedule works Id love to go

    Some friends and I might be able to come as we're right below Jackson County. We already visit Portland about once a year. Any of the locations you mentioned is fine, but Coos Bay sounds kinda fun. :)

    Ok this is my first post in quite a long time... We just moved here to Oregon and we brought along about a dozen or so boxes of pins... Coming from So Cal we have a ton of stuff... I thought our trading days would be over, but if you have a gathering I am sure we would make it...

    We now live on the coast just south of you in Winchester Bay...

    Maybe if we ask real nice, we could convince Docfish to make the drive down... Just trading with David is as good as a pin event...lol...

    So I mentioned the Pin meet up in Vancouver the other day. It is being run by a Facebook Group called NW Pintrader Nights. It is an open group that anyone can join.

    Their Inaugural meet up is at Leonardo's Pizzeria in Vancouver, WA on February 21st. Here are the details that the organizer sent me. He would like people to contact him on Facebook for a head count. If you are not on FB I can pass along a message.

    We are NW Pintrader Nights. Right now the group is open so everyone can see everything. We are meeting at Leonardo's Pizzeria at 16505 SE 1st St. in Vancouver on Saturday February 21st from 2-4. If the numbers get large enough we may add some time. Booster Packs and Beyond out of Florida is sponsoring with discounted pins, booster packs, start up sets, door prizes, and other things. Open invite. Kids welcome.

    By the way everyone. If you have not contacted the organizer, Dennis at his email (Aposkibum@aol.com ) please do so with a head count. He wants to get an idea of how many people will be there. Last I heard it will be around 20. Also we are getting the space for free, so he owuld really appreciate if everyone could buy something at the restaurant. Thanks.

    Apparently so. I am not the organizer, just a person who wants to spread the news to hopefully make it more of a success.

    Tomorrow is the big day. I know Vixy and I will be there. I hope to see some of the rest of you. I will do a report afterwards to let you all know how it went.

    So the pin event this last weekend was a big success. We had over 20 traders attend and Booster Packs and Beyond brought some great pins to buy. There were limited edition pins from WDI as well as plenty of Open Edition pins, lanyard sets and starter packs at great prices. Leonardo's Pizza was good and the space was comfortable. I highly encourage people to try out their meets. I will post when they announce the next one.
