Hello again,

Of course we realize that many of you are overwhelmed with work and/or school, and might not be able to attend the event. Luckily, the bicycle advocates at CrankMyChain.com are helping out by including tonight's forum in their nightly webcast. According to their newsletter:

#BikeCheck will fire up early tonight around 6PM so we can have special coverage of the Mayoral Candidates forum. We then plan on doing the 9-10pm show from Salmon St. Springs (with Marquam and Hawthorne bridges in the back ground) (unless we come up with a better idea).

So if you have access to the web during the times the forum will take place, feel free to tune in (http://www.crankmychain.com/articles/read-bikecheck-live-webcast-m-th-9pm_63.html) and multitask while you tackle whatever else you might be doing that is preventing you from attending. Many thanks to #BikeCheck for helping out with all this.

We hope to see you at the event tonight, and if not we hope you will be seeing us on the web!

The Planning Club,
