Don't forget the Willamette Valley Wine Tour on Friday, August 6th , 2010 which leaves from the Double Tree Hotel in Portland at 10 AM and arrives at the Phoenix Hotel in Eugene at 5:00 PM. The bus will leave at 6:00 PM from the CAMCOR facility in Eugene on the campus of the University of Oregon for dinner at the King Estates Winery. See the registration form below for some additional details.

Willamette Valley Wine Tour:
The Willamette Valley is home to one of the finest wine growing regions in the United States and has a large number of top notch wineries. World class Pinot Noir for starters! See here for some information:

On Friday August 6th after M&M and before the Eugene workshop, we are also planning a chartered bus tour down the Willamette Valley for wine tasting and lunch at a few of these fabulous wineries. The cost of the bus tour and lunch is separate from the workshop but will be $60 per person (limited to 40 people). The bus will leave around 10 AM in Portland and will continue to King Estates Winery outside of Eugene for dinner that evening after a brief stop at your hotel in Eugene to freshen up before dinner. The bus will take you back to the Phoenix Inn in Eugene after your dinner.  You will need to book your hotel yourself and many nice hotels are available in Eugene although the Phoenix Inn is close to the campus and conveniently close to Eugene's picturesque downtown shopping and river walks.

The workshop will be the next day on Saturday and on Sunday you can either leave from the Eugene airport or take a bus, train or one way rental car back to the Portland airport.

Spouses and significant others are welcome on the bus tour and for those not attending the workshop Eugene is a fun place to walk around on Saturday- the summer Saturday Market downtown is always a treat for visitors.
