Anyone else likely to go? It would be lovely to have a Vegan Fitness meet-up there! :D

The 2011 Portland VegFest has come and gone. Initial reports are that nearly 7,000 people participated this year and it was definitely packed when I went on Saturday. The only other VFer that I knowingly encountered was Robert Cheeke. He seems to be doing well and is bouncing around North America representing himself, Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness plus sometimes Vega at various VegFests and similar events. Anyone else make it out?
