Almost time to give the old lady her annual bath and fly her to Wisconsin. The party happens rain or shine, so don't forget your raincoat.

Looks like several sponsors have door prizes for the crowd, so when you arrive, find the the picnic table, and get a name tag for yourself.

Now the important part. Look for the roll of drawing tickets. They're in pairs, same number on each. Tear a set off the roll. Put one ticket in your pocket. Put the matching number ticket into the bucket, or box, or whatever we have there on the table to collect them. Honor system; one number per person please.

We'll be drawing from the bucket later, and calling the numbers, so keep your ticket handy!

Ok, that's it. There are eleven kegs this year; find me when a tap runs dry. As always (1) don't waste the cups, (2) thank the sponsors, and (3) keep track of your people. Walk, or elect a designated driver, and make sure everyone gets home safe.

Late to all the replies, but I will be there to talk about my multiple starts, never finishes, and tall tales

Look forward to putting some faces and names together. I want to go to the concert as well, so trying to figure out the timing on this.

Default Skybolt Fastener Kit

Dan, can I offer a complete Skybolt Fastener Kit as a door prize/silent sponsor? Deb and I will be there all week and this would be a fun time for us on Monday. Depending on which aircraft takes the prize, I'll simply ship it to the winner. Deb hosts the Performers Tent and I plan to roam the premises to talk with customers through Monday.
Regards, Ned Bowers - Skybolt

Osh first-timer here. So looking forward to the event! I have a very experienced pilot flying right seat with me, all the better to spot traffic converging on Ripon.

Thank you Dan & the great sponsors for putting on a terrific event again.
It was great reconnecting with all the VAFers.

Oh, & thanks for one of the many door prizes handed out.
I will definately use it.

Many thanks to Dan, the vendors supplying the beer and door prizes and to Gallaghar for providing the venue. All present seemed to have a really good time. Biggest and best social yet, in my opinion.

Let's do it again next year!

I wandered through event a little late, did not see anyone I knew personally, came out far end and noticed guy at picnic table by himself and asked if another stranger joined him.

We had great conversation about RV's and in time invited several other guys looking lost...had great time, especially after several of those cow beers, whatever it was, was good.

None of us knew each other but we did by end of evening.

Thanks for the party, enjoyed it.
