  • Vortex 1 (1970)

    Vortex1 was a state-sponsored festival held at Milo Mciver state park in 1970.
    This festival is a cool part of the history of Milo and OPB had a video on it last night.. you can watch it online for free here:

    I look forward to hearing if any of you old farts were at Vortex and have any stories about it.

      me too, didn't see them though... pretty groovy scene back there in 1970. Awesome show pretty clever by the old Oregon government to come up with the concept to keep the kids away from downtown during that convention. It is just hard to believe that they had that many people down there. I believe I heard that it still is on record for the largest traffic jam in OR history pretty impressive being that the traffic jam that stopped the whole metro area with that snow storm a month or so ago.

        Not off topic

        Why did this post get moved?? This thread is hardly off topic as it pertains to the history of a disc golf course that is recognized state- and nation-wide.

          I read the article and it wasn't really about disc golf. Why does it bother you so much that it was moved? "Off Topic" doesn't mean "inappropriate"; that's "Controversial Topics."

          (I suppose this could also legitimately go in the Milo McIver sub-forum... so I'll put it there now.)

            Moving this thread displays a serious misuse of moderator power.
            It's not about a disc golf course, so it's "Off Topic."
