Today's location: not yet announced
The Eugene, Oregon graticule is located around latitude 44, longitude -123. Consisting of Benton County, most of Polk County, most of Lincoln County, northwestern Lane County, and parts of Linn and Marion Counties, the Eugene graticule contains a national forest and the Coast Mountains.
 Notable Cities in the Eugene Graticule
- Corvallis (Oregon State University)
- Eugene (University of Oregon)
- Monmouth (Western Oregon University)
- Salem (Willamette University and State Capitol)
Notice: This should be a very active graticule. With the University of Oregon, Oregon State University, Western Oregon University, and Willamette University there are over 50,000 students in this graticule. What is up? Though all the students are on the east edge of the graticule and the locations are in forests or fields the locations are easy to get to because of logging roads and in the event that the location is too far away check out the Springfield or Oakridge Graticule. When the location is out near Newport the Springfield location is right of I-5.
Please use discuss to find others at the schools to set up big meet-up.
