Default 2019 Oshkosh RV Social

2019 Oshkosh RV Social

Monday July 22nd


Starts When The Airshow Ends

Ends When The Kegs Run Dry (or about 10PM)

Hey, 7 weeks until till Oshkosh! The Beer Fairy has again dragged her butt up the basement stairs, so mark your calendar. The 2019 Oshkosh RV Social is Monday evening, July 22nd. Location is the back yard at 1366 W. Waukau. Grab a shuttle to the shuttle exchange terminal by the control tower, walk two blocks west out through the Waukau EAA gate, and turn right into the second backyard.

Official start time is "when the airshow ends", but volunteers have been known to start early. It's a public service; someone has to clear the foam off the top of the kegs.

Our location host is again Arthur J. Gallagher & Co, the world's third largest insurance brokerage, and providers of an excellent specialty insurance program for RV's. The Gallagher Gang will be there all week with refreshments and shade, plus they're hosting their own event on Wednesday evening. You're invited then too, so stop by and say thanks. It has to be the best place in the whole world to get answers to airplane insurance questions.

The Fairy drank all her own money years ago, so your favorite sponsors have again picked up the tab. They appreciate your business; show 'em some love. The lineup includes:

Barrett Precision Engines (Rhonda and Monty Barrett)
Continental/Titan (James Ball, aka JB)
Delta Pop Aviation (Don Pansier)
Flightlines (Tom Swearengen)
Flyboy/Team Rocket (Vince and Blake Frazier)
JD Air (Darwin Barrie)
Kitplanes Magazine (Paul Dye and Marc Cook)
Lycoming/Thunderbolt (Jeff Schans)
SteinAir (Stein and the Gang)
TruTrak (Andrew Barker)

The old lady ordered eleven kegs, eight Spotted Cow and three Fixed Gear. Warning; Fixed Gear is 6.8 ABV, so don't let it sneak up on you.

Which brings us to a serious message. Let's be responsible. Keep an eye on your buddy. Walk or get a designated driver. Make sure all your people get home safe.

Get a name tag when you arrive; the goal is to put faces with names. Social rules are the same as VAF rules; keep it civil, and keep it RV. We'll again have water and soft drinks for the no-hops folks. If you want food, grab something on the way, or try the place next door. No parking on site, unless you bring your miniature Harley. The WalMart bullhorn went in the trash, thus no door prize interruption this year. And please, everyone try to convince Jenny to dance on the picnic table. 'Nuff said. See you there!

This is my favorite nite too, and one of the things I look most forward to at OSH. Meeting the people I ?almost? know on VAF and conferring them on ?special? stuff we talk about. The Gallagher girls are great, because they are on our team. Can?t wait....

Ha! The social is like the OSH itself. If you wait until the "official" start you're late!
