Default Need an organizer for RV-8 gathering at OSH

We've had a gathering of RV-8/8A builders and owners at OSH for many years. I've organized the last several of these, but I won't make OSH this year due to a hard scheduling conflict (house sale closing date).

I wish I could make it, but it simply isn't possible this year

If there is interest in a gathering of RV-8/8A builders and owners, we'll need someone else to volunteer to organize it.

Don't feel anywhere near qualified to organize... but keep me in the loop.

Default I would like to be a community organizer!

I will be volunteering at OSH all week and would be happy to heard all the 8(A) cats. Besides, our brother Luke will be here from Italy, which deserves a special celebration. What if we break from tradition and meet for breakfast at Lasure's?
Let me know your thoughts.

If it is a breakfast meeting, count me OUT.

For those that camp, finding transportation off the grounds will be difficult.

Default Lasures is readily accessible to campers

If anyone is worried about getting to Lasures, it is not difficult. Just take the North 40 bus to the gate near Friar Tuck's on the northwest side of the field. Go through the gate and walk across the street for the best breakfast in OSH. We would have to arrive early to avoid a lengthy wait and we could not all sit together, but the 8(A) gatherings in the past have usually split up into small groups.

If you guys are not hot on the breakfast meeting idea, then we can certainly do something else.

What say you, fellow 8(A) builders, pilots?

Steve

Default keep the tradition

I can't imagine the week without the 8's builders gathering.

We are so cool



IMHO could be easier stay 'inside' the area, I'll arrive sunday 23 with another italian 8 builder - Franz (the orange one).

ps: sad that Kevin is busy this year, see you next time.

I'll be there for the first time in a few years. Can we draft Dr. Don to return with the doughnuts?
