Default It was great to see you guys

I had a great time talking to my RV-8(A) brethren at the Theater in the Woods. The duct tape name tags were the result of me forgetting to purchase "proper" name tags. I think it worked out even better.

The excess donuts (thank you Pic-N-Save) were given to the able flight students on the Theater stage. As you would expect any teens to do, they inhaled them.

I tried to email the group photo to DR, but it did not go through. I will try to figure out how to post them here and give it a shot.

Till next year.

Steve

Steve, send me a PM or a mail info@rv8.it with your e_mail address, I arrange for you a private directory in my Dropbox so you can upload the group photo and I'll share it to Doug.

Default Great time !

I had a great time meeting "like minded" RV-8 builders and flyer. It was my first experience meeting other RV-8 builders face to face since I started my project. Just a great bunch of people from around the World.

Can't believe Osh 2017 ended a week ago...time flies too fast at RV speed !

Looking forward to meet you all again, maybe showing you a newly completed and flying RV-8...
