August 5, Saturday, 9am-4pm. EUGENE, champagne hike with Bill Sullivan to benefit the Oregon Mozart Players. Join Bill for a 2.6-mile hike to a twisting 80-foot waterfall at Cascadia State Park near near Sweet Home. The hike gains 450 feet of elevation, so bring good shoes. OMP flutist Alexis Evers will perform a special 10-minute concert of Debussy and Native Oregon music for us at a soda spring on the site of a historic spa hotel. All hike participants will receive an autographed copy of one of Bill's books. After a champagne lunch provided by Laramie Palmer, Bill will lead an optional 1.2-mile loop along the South Santiam River to see a pioneer wagon route and a cobble beach. We'll assemble in Eugene at 9am and drive in your own car (or carpool) an hour on paved highways to the trailhead. After 16 years of volunteering to lead champagne hikes this will be Sullivan’s final performance for the Mozart Players, as he focuses on writing a sequel to his latest mystery, “The Case of the Reborn Bhagwan.” For reservations ($70-100 per person), contact Jessika Kaiser of the Oregon Mozart Players at kaiser@oregonmozartplayers.org or 541-345-6648.
