Question OSHKOSH ARRIVAL EARLY

Hello Gents

A couple of friends and I are planning on arriving in Oshkosh on Thursday July 18th and I was wondering if the special arrival procedure ( Notam ) will be in effect on the 18th or will it be just a standard arrival talking to Approach and tower as usual??

Thank you for feedbacks

Bruno

Honest question, for guys that arrive July 18-19, what do you do until the show starts? I assume watch arrivals, but what else?

Default We get there on Friday and..... watch arrivals

Seriously, it's my favorite thing to do at OSH.

In the evening we drink beer and talk about airplanes.

It's heaven.

Default Do the following

These are the things we do arriving on the Friday:
1. Get camping set up and stock up on food, beer, wine etc. for the weekend
2. Do the Mexican restaurant for dinner Friday evening, good food and great margaritas.
3. Visit with the volunteers (old and new) who make the entire HBC area work
4. Visit with old friends
5. Sit around and drink beer, wine, etc and talk about airplanes
6. Watch people arrive, land etc.
Saturday
1. Get coffee at 6am (assuming Rich actually gets his a** out of bed)
2. Find someplace for breakfast (subway??)
3. Wander around checking out aircraft, watch the vendors setting up, prep food/marinade for the evenings cooking on the grills
4. Watch the landings
5. Cook good stuff on the grills
6. Sit around drinking beer, wine etc. and talk airplanes.
Sunday
1. Repeat: Same as Saturday but the arrivals get more interesting
2. HBC beer bash

Works out to be a relaxing but very good time surrounded by good people with like minded interests. Can't be beat.

One thing you?ll notice if you arrive early is the sheer amount of work being done to set things up - you don?t need any formal invitation or training to jump in and lend a hand!
