for those who don't want to go to the EAA forums:

Hello, I'd just like to take a minute to clear the air on this.

This promotion for discounted AirVenture passes was made available to a small number of EAA members who live in the area and have never (at least as far as we can tell) attended AirVenture. Our hope is to get people to give the event a try so that they can become even more involved in general aviation. This is core to our mission and for that reason we are giving this a try. I'm happy to answer any questions on this, as I understand there are concerns about our willingness to be transparent.

Thanks,
Eric

I've posted elsewhere:

It isn't the mistake (and this was one, IMO) that gets people fired up.

It is the cover up. And EAA 'fessed up what they were trying to do and ended it, so there's no cover up.

Mark it down to a bad idea and move on...

I agree, I have better things to do than get upset over this. I doubt that will be the majority however. People are always looking for something to complain about these days....
