As far as Stumptown's reasons for looking into and then deciding not to run a Portland Ice Bowl this season, I suggest you ask Stumptown (I was not present at the meeting in question). (They have their own website with forum, at www.stumptowndg.com
.) I think it was because the available manpower did not align with the available event dates. Additionally, I believe the ideal event date was not secured before another nearby event claimed it. Again, don't quote me on that reasoning, as I was not at the meeting, but that's basically what it said in an an email I received on the subject.
