Guys-

Sounds like fun. Since this will be our first time to Oshkosh in many years I'm not real sure of the lay of the land and since our -7 is not yet flying we will be in Camp Scholler, not HBC. You old hands must know... Can we get into HBC from the "outside" on Sunday?

Default I Sounds like fun... :)

This is the first year it looks like I should be able to attend Oshkosh. A beer tasting sounds like my kind of event. I hope to be there barring bad weather or a last minute gig I can't refuse...

You can get everywhere on Sunday. Gate guards don't get serious until Monday, the official opening day, and even then, an admission wristband is all you need to get to HBC.

Looking at the pics from last year, who wouldn't be? One suggestion for us newbies - name tags with home location and model type maybe?

We're in if we arrive according to plan. Couldn't make it in last year on Sunday due to weather and a simultaneous pet crisis.

I don't think this is true anymore. I thought they made the Monday wristband a Sun/Mon wristband and started screening on Sunday. It also may be dependent on which gate you enter too.

Any reason to sit around with good people, talk about planes, and drink beer... I'm in!

Last year we arrived Sunday early and after we were tied down the guard at the gate in the SW corner of HBC allowed a friend to drive his car out to my plane to deliver my tent. (Don't ask why I needed my tent transported by a friends car) the gate guard was very generous all Sunday. Hope they are this year!

Hope for good weather this year and we will be there Sunday morning again.

Count me in again Mike! From what I can remember, I had a great time last year. And as always, willing to help out anyway I can.
