I had received an email about an impromptu town hall with Rick Larsen, supposedly scheduled for this Saturday, August 15th. I don't know if that is correct, so I will attempt to confirm it before I list it officially.

  2. I posted last night about a change of venue for Adam Smith- guess what?- it has changed again (via his website). now it is moved to Harry Lang Stadium (behind Clover Park High School). Space should no longer be an issue, as this is a large sports stadium. Adam Smith's site still says to call and reserve. address 11023 Gravelly Lake Drive SW Lakewood, but this insider's tip, you enter the parking off of 112th Street SW. If it moves again, I will let you know. What a Scavenger Hunt!
