Worlds Highest Society Since 1938

Upon our arrival at the Portland Airport, we were ferried by private vehicles to our convention hotel...the Red Lion(97217). On the way to collect our luggage we bumped into Joe & Geri Durrenburger, also from Los Angeles & we shared that ride! The Portland Skyliners Tall Club made us all feel comfortable and shuttled most of the attendees both ways. 


This is my first convention that I can say that I really had time to relax. Yes there were many activities that we did participate, but I never did think we were to spend so much time on the tour buses! There were 2 trips where we were out from 8-5. Yes they took us two hours west to the Sea and two hours east up the scenic Columbia Gorge to museums, memorials, and even a winery. We enjoyed all the events, but as Bob Koster said "the after hours parties are what Tall Clubs are about". Yes after hours events are quite unique, this year beginning at 11 pm and going to....? Each night has a different theme and it's beverages galore! IF the clients were staying at this hotel then all of us got breakfast vouchers to pay for it. Since this hotel is located right next to the Columbia River and located on an island we has front row seats for the Fourth of July celebration.


CTTC was represented at the convention by: Bob Cramer, Kris Teachman, Bob & Sheila Koster, Bob & Wendy Fisher and us, Tom & Ann Jonynas. 


At the queen's ball Lauren Bath stepped down and our new Queen was selected by the executive board to be: Lindsay May also of Canada. Walter Narog the TCI President has resigned and the delegates voted for our new President to be Carolyn Goldstein.


There is much more to follow, probably next month...all that delegate information.
