Oshkosh, By Kosh - Two-Day Fly-in!!

Update: If you are even thinking about attending the East Central BAC
Fly-in at Oshkosh we need to hear from you as soon as possible. Whether
some of the events will be held will hinge on knowing how many people
may attend. Please contact Bob Schmidt at (rgschmi@execpc.com) or call
him at 414-397-8215. When you call or email Bob to let him know you are
attending, let him know the number of family members and/or friends that
will be attending any of the events so he can get a better handle on the
head count.

Update: The Green Bay FSS tour is a YES for Sunday Morning, the Green
Bay tower and Green Bay National Weather service are both pending
approval (staffing on weekends is the concern).

Update: To reserve a room, call the Hilton at 920-966-1300. If you have
any problems, call Kathy Doran at 920-237-5201 during business hours.
The block reservation will expire on Aug 31 at midnight. They will
honor the block price of $79.00 on Friday and Sunday nights as well.

Update: There will be a presentation on the two Musketeers and four
Musketeer pilots' flight to Alaska. Three of the four Alaska pilots are
planning to be at the fly-in.

Update: The Oshkosh tower controller has stated that it should be no
problem if we want to fly the 'Fisk Arrival' as a group. We can do it
after a fly-out or just fly ten miles or so away and then do the
arrival.

Update: Orion Flight Services WILL give us ramp space, a place to
display the banner, meeting space and will give us a fuel discount.

Group tour of the museum. They have the world's only full motion flight
simulator with 360 degrees of motion in pitch, roll and yaw. $6.00 per
ride. It'll get you sick!!

Other events being planned (tentative - more as exact details become
available): Pioneer Airport will have the Ford Trimotor, the Swallow and
the Travel Aire available for rides (at a cost).

Possibly a maintenance clinic.

_______________________________

There is a pretty good mall across the street from the airport for those
spouses and family members that would prefer something non-aviation.

Note: We feel that the number of events being planned will require a
two-day fly-in. If attendance looks light or all the events don't get
firmed-up it may end up being a one day event on September 10.

Let Bob Schmidt know ASAP if you are a definite or a maybe for
attendance (rgschmi@execpc.com) or call Bob at 414-397-8215.
