Donut delivery requires somebody who is driving into the show.

I think they sell Krispi Kream at the Barn.

I like it. This year Tuesday 10 AM is open. Did not make last year as I was flying in an RV Formation and we were briefing while the RV-8 group was meeting.

No, Scott, I won't be there. My Oshkosh days are over. However, I will always think fondly of these meetings over the years when the end of July rolls around. The RV-8 Gatherings at the Theater in the Woods started a long, long time ago. Pretty amazing that the tradition continues! You guys have fun.

Besides, it's Bob DiMeo who is in charge of the doughnuts.

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.
Kevin,

I'm not trying to volunteer for anything but wanted to say thank you for organizing the gathering and your continued efforts at keeping it going.

Sorry to hear you can't make it this year. My wife and I attended last year for the first time and found it to be a great resource to getting many of my questions answered and meeting some really awesome folks.

See the rest of you attendees on Tuesday at 1000, Theater in the Woods.

Default It looks like we have a concensus!

Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. At the Theater in the Woods. I will take care of the donuts. How about coffee?

Any other suggestions? Let me know.

Thanks Charlie. I've greatly enjoyed meeting a long list of RV-8/8A builders and owners over the years. The first few times I went to OSH, it was all about seeing all the aircraft, talking to vendors, watching the air show etc. The last 10 years or so have been much more about spending time with old friends I've made over the years.

I'm sorry to miss this year, but I've got a lot more OSH visits to go. Hoping for next year.

Cheers,
