Eastern Pacific Ocean Conference 2002

Lodging and Meals Reminders

Wednesday Arrival

We will have a check-in desk in the main lobby from 4-7 where you can pick up your abstract book, pass us your computer presentation, pay dues, etc. From 7-9 there will be an informal social gathering in the Ram's Head bar, and you can check in there also.

Wednesday Dinner

If you would like to dine at the renowned Cascade Dining Room on Wednesday evening (highly recommended), you should make table reservations in advance by calling (503) 272-3700. Timberline lodgers will have a voucher for Wednesday dinner to a face value of $28 which they can spend in the Cascade Dining Room or elsewhere in the Lodge. If you would like to form a table group for Wednesday dinner, post a message to the message board.

Last seating in the Cascade Dining Room is at 8 pm, but late arrivers can eat in the Ram's Head Bar until 11 pm.

Box lunches

Box lunches will be available by prior arrangement. 24 hours notice would be appreciated, and you can make your request at the front desk.

Timberline Packages

Some reminders of what you do and do not get in your Timberline lodging package:

Meal vouchers will be provided for Wednesday Dinner and Thursday/Friday lunch with face values of $28 and $10 respectively. These vouchers can be used at one of several dining locations in the Lodge. The package includes a gratuity in addition to the face value of the voucher. Also included in the package are breakfast each morning, heavy hors d'oeuvres prior to the poster session (Thursday) and the EPOC banquet (Friday). So, depending on which nights you reserve a room at the package rate, you receive:

  • Wednesday night: Wednesday dinner ($28 voucher), Thursday breakfast, Thursday lunch ($10 voucher)
  • Thursday night: Thursday dinner (`heavy' hors d'oeuvres prior to the poster session), Friday breakfast, Friday lunch ($10 voucher)
  • Friday night: Friday dinner (EPOC banquet)

    Two drinks vouchers are provided to all attending the poster session. Drinks at the banquet must be paid for individually.
