Default 2017 Oshkosh RV Social



2017 Oshkosh RV Social

Monday July 24th

1366 WEST WAUKAU AVENUE


Starts When The Airshow Ends

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


She's back!

Yes, once again the old girl has crawled up out of the basement. Come join the Beer Fairy at OSH, on Monday after the airshow, for one night of libation, tall tales, and outright lies.

The nice folks at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co (formerly Nationsair, but still Jenny, Shanna, Jennifer, and the rest of the gang) are again providing the terrific backyard location, just outside the Waukau Avenue EAA gate, west of the tower. Please look for the Gallagher staffers and thank them in some appropriate way. They'll be at 1366 Waukau all week with cool drinks and shade for weary aviators.

Here's the map. Easy walk from anywhere. It is near the bus center, and parking if you have a car. No parking at the house. None. Zip. Please, don't even think about it.



Looks like ten kegs should do it, maybe eleven. We'll go with New Glarus Spotted Cow and Lakefront Fixed Gear (yep, that's the name, a red ale with a 6% kick).

Nothing flies without money...no bucks, no Buck Rogers. Your sponsors are kicking in the necessary Aviation Monetary Units, so please thank 'em when you see 'em:

Barrett Precision Engines, Continental/Titan, Lycoming/Thunderbolt, Delta Pop Aviation, Kitplanes Magazine, SteinAir, TruTrak, Flightlines, Flyboy/Team Rocket, and SureFly

The Social operates on the KIS principle. The Beer Fairy ain't Martha Stewart; we're not getting into food service or creating setup/clean up issues. We will have water and a very limited selection of soft drinks available, but hungry folks should grab a sandwich on their way to the party. The Sacred Heart brat stand is across the street, and last year the house next door was selling food.

Serious note..this is an RV owner/builder function. Same rules as before; anyone caught inviting bystanders for free beer will be spotlighted, stripped naked, smeared with proseal, and rolled in tall grass. There's no cop at the door....but we can't do an event like this at OSH and issue a general invitation to all. Likewise for those with bad manners. Overall, the Social Rules are the same as VAF Rules, but with beer: RV only please, and keep it nice.

Be sure to name tag yourself when you arrive. This year we expect some door prizes. Dancing on the picnic table is approved!

Hey Dan,

I know the rules and I haven't missed an event in years but, my son is coming home for two weeks from the Airforce and has never been to OshKosh. I asked the wife to give up her spot this year so he can fly in and experience the event as it should be, camping next to the 7. Can I sneak him in? Please please please? He will only drink a little beer, Airforce guys don't drink very much. That what he tells me!

Anyway, I will await your ruling and will comply completely!

Active duty Air Force, flying in with his dad in an RV-7? Qualified!

Heck, he can have my beer if it comes down to it.

Default Dude!!

Its because of this event that my wife says RV people are fun!

Thanks Dan and Arthur G Gallager.

Be careful tho, you know Oshkosh was named the 2nd drunkest city in the nation. All told 8 of 10 were in Wisconsin, but whos counting...bring on the beers.

Count me in again.
Where else can you get free suds & meet all the VAFers face to face.

Thanks to all the sponsors who put this great event together.

Let's be sure to remember them on our next purchase.
