Default First time going to OSH as a RV-8 builder !

Hello all RV-8 builders and flyers !

I will be at OSH this year, for my second visit. First one was in 2012, and it sparked the interest in building a RV-8. This year, I am attending as a RV-8 builder

My Dad decided to join me this year. We will be driving from Montreal, Quebec all the way to OSH. We will gladly join you for a social event.

Looking forward to meet you all !

OK Campers,

I am blasting off for OSH tomorrow morning. This is your last minute reminder that we are holding our RV-8(A) Airventure get together at Theater in the Woods on Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. I will bring doughnuts.

I will also bring name tags.

It has always been a tight gathering, so lets each be prepared to give a little 2 minute run down about what has been going on in our flying/building. Nothing formal, but a way to better connect with each other.

As Pope Paul used to say, it's not about the airplanes, its about the people. I really cherish seeing you guys every year. Let's make this one count!

Default Thanks

Thanks guys. It was fun to make our first OSKH with a year old airplane and get together with you. We hope to do it again in a couple three years as OSKH seems to work out best for us along that time line. I really had a good time there talking to some of the new builders. The B-52 driver was fun to talk to about his day job and his 8 build. That's what it is all about. Thanks, your as always, R.E.A. III #80888

I kept my duct tape name tag all day, and told the high-zoot folks it identified me as a homebuilder. It was universally acclaimed!
