None of this fun and connection is possible without the continued support from sponsors like Turnstone. Adding to that list of fantastic sponsors in Portland is CRESA. They were good sports and handed over their bounties without too much pain. We are also attracting passionate and driven founder from across the river in Vancouver, WA.
