That's because the house is not inside the EAA fence. Head west out the EAA gate on Waukau. Back yard, second private home on the right.

Well, that was fun.

Given the weather Friday night and Saturday (and the subsequent lack of Sunday arrivals), for a while I was thinking there would be a lot of beer to split between the 50 or so Friday arrival crews. However, the sky cleared, the sun came out, and free beer is a reliable magnet. In the end we used more than 500 name tags, and a lot of the crowd doesn't bother with them, as they are already wearing ID. I'd guess we had 600 guests through the evening, more or less. The evening weather was perfect for the ninth year in a row. Sure hope that statement isn't a jinx.

Next year we'll re-arrange the trailers and open more taps, just to ease the crush during peak time. First tap got pulled about 4:30. We ran out of beer (eleven kegs), soft drinks (six cases), and water (three cases), all about 9:30, which is perfect. Thanks to Scott and Tanya for helping with clean-up.

Many of you refer to the Social as "Dan's party", but it is not. I just arrange a few things and change out the taps when the kegs run dry. The Social happens because a group of loyal sponsors make it so. Some have been sponsoring for decades, Stein being a good example. Most of the current sponsors have been in since the first at the Waukau location; 2019 makes seven times. Thank 'em when you can.

Ok, so who has pictures? My phone was dead, but I can host a few of yours.

It was a hoot yet again. So many good conversations and so little time. Thanks so much to the beer ferry and the super awesome sponsors!

It is the single best opportunity for "Names + Faces".

We try to help the beer ferry most years when she gets a little goofy footed and needs some help shutting down the party. I do trash pickup in the dark and help "dispose" of the beer trough overflow bucket, and Tanya is "The Sweeper". "Party is over. Time to get a move on. Happy Oshoksh!"

Can't wait until next year. There will be new grand adventures to lie about.

Default Wow!

What a blast! Connecting the names to the faces of folks I have followed, advised, or seen only on the net was fulfilled. The location and weather couldn't have been better. Hats off to those who all put it together!
