Anyone interested in sharing a shuttle from airport to Ashland on 9/6 any time 1:30 on? Or anyone willing to pick me up at airport the afternoon of 9/6? I'm happy to pay for a ride.

Linda Plaut Aug 18, 2015 at 01:13 PM

I'm due to arrive at the airport near Ashland at 1:15 on Sunday 9/6 and need to be at aiport for flight home by 12:30 (or a bit later). I'd love to either get a ride or share a shuttle with someone.

I will arrive late 9/6 & depart 9/20. This will be a great season.

Greetings: I will be driving from Portland to Ashland on Sept 6th. Ride share anyone?

I am not going to be on the West Coast this year. My next Road Scholar trip will be to Paris in 2016.
Roz Cole Aug 18, 2015 at 03:59 PM

Made my flight res before you posted, or I would have planned a couple of days stopover in Portland. Maybe next year?

Hi Peggy, At what time will our 7/14 orientation and dinner be? Thanks.

2013 - July 14 program:
You will have time that evening to see Shakespeare's Cymbeline on the outdoor Elizabethan stage. There are even some $25 tickets available now (late May).
If you choose to stay an extra day, on July 19 you can see My Fair Lady, and there are a few seats for King Lear. Call 800-219-8161 for a ticket also to a noon talk by OSF Artistic Director on directing King Lear. I'm looking forward to a busy week with you all! Group Leader Peggy Newman

I am registered for 10/7 program. Is anyone else going? Will arrive MFR late 10/6. Staying 3 more nites after to see 4 more plays. Have been to OSF many times & would be happy to share my experiences with first-timers.G

Judith Bergman Aug 29, 2012 at 04:14 PM

Clarification of my previous post: I will be flying into Medford and taking the airport shuttle to Cox Hall Sunday afternoon, September 9. Ashland is a 1+ mile WALK but not sure how safe along highway at night. Would like to attend a Sunday evening performance with someone or a couple who are coming with a car.
Carol Moore Aug 31, 2012 at 02:49 PM

Hi Judith, I am the group leader for your group and would be glad to ask people when they arrive if they are planning to see a performance Sunday night. It is safe to walk, but it's quite a ways. There will probably be many people out on the streets because of the theater. We're showing some videos about the programs that evening, but if you can arrange to see a play, that's great. Looking forward to meeting you. Carol Moore
Judith Bergman Sep 02, 2012 at 03:11 PM

Thanks, Carol. My friend in Portland tells me it is a well lit and safe walk. However, I plan to wait and not purchase a ticket until I definitely know abuot someone who is also planning to see a performance on Sunday. So I'll wait to see if you find anyone and you can let me know.
