Default RV-3 Gathering at Oshkosh 2012 - Wed @ Noon

We few, We Hearty "Band of Brothers" (and Sisters), We builders of the -3....we must MEET!

The question is when? We need to work around the Van's Day activities on Monday, and the morning of Tuesday is tied up with the Theater in The Woods tribute to Van. many homebuilders starting making their escape after Wednesday (Oshkosh is always a bit sad later in the week), but Wednesday is an option.

How about Sunday afternoon/ Will folks be planning to be there by then?

Chime in all of you brave souls building -3's. Doubtless, whatever time we pick will not not work for everyone, and someone will have to miss it. But if we can get a majority to be happy, that would be great. Those that aren't happy? Well, you're building a primitive kit...you're used to being unhappy....

I'll throw out three options that work for me:

Sunday, 1600
Tuesday, 1400
Wednesday, 1200

Default I'm in...

All three times could work for me, though Sunday may
be sketchy if there are weather delays coming from the
west coast.

Looking forward to meeting the gang... And of course I'll
have the new baby with me :-).

Anytime for me too, but Sunday might be cutting it close. Not sure yet how we are getting there, it's either Cub or Scare-line.

Can't wait to see Tsam and Danny Boy!

Thanks for the inputs so far folks - we'll leave this open for more comments for a while, then pick a time in a week or so. Looks like Sunday is too "iffy" for folks (not surprised), I may now be tied up with the RV-1 on Tuesday afternoon....we'll see how it setles out. And I am really lookign forwad to seing "Danny Boy" as well!

Bump....bump....bump.....

Come on, we had a dozen folks at last year's -3 builders gathering - where'd everybody go?

We'll take any more inputs then post a meeting time next week sometime. I'm leaning towards Wedensday, unless a bunch of folks say they can't be there then.

If a day and time is set while I am still at OSH and it is not during one of the two RV Formation teams that are flying time slots, I will be there with my camera to document it.
