Default VAF: RV-12 Get Together at Oshkosh 2012

Good morning all.

What does the group think about a get together at Oshkosh.

It might be fun to put some names and faces together.

It might also be fun to get a group photo taken, with an RV-12 in the background.

Some meeting place sugestions:

Van's booth at a set time
One of the lunch spots at a set time
Someone's airplane that will be at a known location at a set time.
After one of the Van's fourms.

Anyone interested?

If so I will put together a list of VAF name, real name, hometown and airplane status.

I will be at Oshkost Monday thru Friday afternoon, overnighting in Green Bay.

Hope so see some of you there.

Marty Santic usually has a RV-12 bash. Maybe he will this year also?

I am all for it. Had a heck of a time finding RV12 people last year, Joe Gores was the only one and that was a chance meeting. Too much to ask, but it would have been far nicer for me if the 12s had all been parked together.

Default Sounds Good!

We are in. Coming in as a flight of 4 arriving July 22, Sunday, late in the afternoon. After we park I can update my blog (That I will be starting on the the form that same Sunday) with our parking location. We can meet there at some designated time for the Picture if you want. Make the time earlier in the week as people start to bug out on Wednesday. We will be there the whole week from Sunday to Sunday. We will be staying in the Dorms.

Count me in if I can get away from the tent for awhile. Sure like to mix it up with you guys and get some faces to attach to names.

Out of consideration for some of us old beat up guys that have to use an electric cart to go the distance, lets consider it on a paved area nearer the center of activities. When those rental carts get in the grass, the battery useful endurance goes waaaay down in a hurry.

Do we have to have our -12 flying or can they be like mine and newly under construction? But we will be at Oshkosh for the whole week.
