I am going to have to take a bunch of pictures of people and associate with the names/VAF ailas - - - - otherwise I totally miss talking to people without a name/face association!

It was a hoot, Dan!

Great time again. Thanks to all the sponsors most of which I use. Great people and a fun party. Good to see people we deal with from afar. Thanks again to all the sponsors and to Dan who made it all happen way back when and keeps it going.

Default Great Time

I had a great time and made a few new friends. I barely scratched the surface of all the people there and wish I had met many more. Until next time...

Dan thanks again for putting everyone together. I tried to thank the sponsors when I first got there but I know I didn't catch all of them. Then it was too late because I'm a light weight and after a few pours things started to get a bit fuzzy. I blame Kyle . . . but seriously, I had a really good time and met some new folks that I've been wanting to meet for a long time.

Default Love this event!

Man, I only got to talk to 15-20 of my old friends this year, seems like there is never enough time.

This event is still one of my absolute favorite at Oshkosh!

Sorry I missed it!!!Having been at OSH since Friday and LOT of walking back and forth----yeah buses are on a LIMITED schedule, I was unfortuneatly got a pretty severe case of inflamed and swollen legs. Guess I wasnt in as good a shape as I thought I was. Hated to have missed it, but will do a better job next year.

A great time as always. Met up with several builders who liked my web log. My daughter was impressed that her Dad was "internet-famous", whatever that means!

Some photos of the event

Van himself was present!
