Default 2018 RV Social


2018 Oshkosh RV Social

Monday July 23rd

1366 WEST WAUKAU AVENUE


Starts When The Airshow Ends

Ends When The Kegs Run Dry (or about 10PM)




Hey, 60 days till Oshkosh! The Beer Fairy has again dragged her butt up the basement stairs and declared she was ready to party, so mark your calendar. It's Monday evening, July 23rd, opening day at OSH. Location is the back yard at 1366 W. Waukau, west of the control tower, just outside the EAA gate.


Official start time is "when the airshow ends", but a few start a wee bit early, merely to clear the foam off the top of the kegs. It's a public service.

Our location host is again Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. The Gallagher Gang will be there all week with refreshments and shade, plus they're hosting their own event on Wednesday evening. You're invited then too, so stop by and say thanks. It has to be the best place in the whole world to get answers to airplane insurance questions.

The Fairy drank all her own money years ago, so your favorite sponsors have again picked up the tab. They appreciate your business; show 'em some love. The lineup includes:

Barrett Precision Engines (Rhonda and Alan)
Continental/Titan (JB)
Delta Pop Aviation (Don)
Flightlines (Tom)
Flyboy/Team Rocket (Vince and Blake)
JD Air (Darwin)
Kitplanes Magazine (Paul)
Lycoming/Thunderbolt (Jeff)
SteinAir (Stein and the Gang)
TruTrak (Andrew)


The old lady ordered eleven kegs, eight Spotted Cow and three Fixed Gear. Warning; Fixed Gear is 6.8 ABV, so don't let it sneak up on you.

Which brings us to a serious message. Let's be responsible. Keep an eye on your buddy. Walk or get a designated driver. Make sure all your people get home safe.

Get a name tag when you arrive; the goal is to put faces with names. Social rules are the same as VAF rules; keep it civil, and keep it RV. We'll again have water and soft drinks for the no-hops folks. If you want food, grab something on the way, or try the place next door. No parking on site, unless you bring your miniature Harley. The WalMart bullhorn went in the trash, thus no door prize interruption this year. And please, everyone try to convince Jenny to dance on the picnic table. 'Nuff said. See you there!

I have it on good authority the mini Hog is suffering suffering with carburatum non workum syndrome but a cure is currently being researched.

I may try to come with my wife and son who'll be with me at OSH this year. Question - I'm staying in Green Bay and will have car parked at the show: what's the best way to get there in that scenario?

Shuttle wagons to the shuttle exchange station by the FAA control tower. Walk 100 yards west on Waukau, out the EAA gate.

Or shuttle to the bus park, maybe 75 yards from 1366 W. Waukau. Detour past the Sacred Heart food stand when you get off the wagon. Brats of course, but also Airventure's best little greasy cheeseburger, and generally less costly than food inside the gates.
