Default Thanks, Van?s!

I got a surprise yesterday. I’ve bought at least two Van’s Aircraft calendars every year for over 20 years. This is a nice “Thank You.” I have Golden Ticket No. 19. With three reported in this thread, there are 22 more out there, and two of them have more value than the rest.

If you get a Golden Ticket, be sure to read the instructions at the bottom and send your email to the address that's listed!

Actually, I have an update on that. There very well may be three tickets that we stuffed in calendars that have considerably more value than the rest... Possibly something along the lines of another tail/emp kit discount ticket...

Lots of the calendars have already shipped, with more orders coming in and shipping every day, and we still have some in stock available to order! But at this rate we may just run out of calendars, so order now to make sure you get yours!

I just ordered 2 the other day. Anxiously waiting.....

Why is it that I feel like the kid in Willy Wonka....

Update: I got my 2 calendars and like Willy Wonka, no golden ticket.
Oh well I have the best 2019 calendars available to man.!!

Go to Doug’s first post in this thread and read the seven words in the black background in the photo of the Golden ticket. Choice of hat or shirt. Also a tour of the factory for me and a guest. I’ve done that but would like to do it again. However I doubt I’d travel all the way to Oregon just for the tour.

P.S. Christmas Day Update: I chose a shirt.
