The July meeting of EAA Chapter 284 will be held on Sunday, July 10, 2016 at Red Stewart Airfield at 2:30 PM. Mike McKosky will talk about his most recent riveting experiences with Ivan. I expect that a local high school student and his parent will be visiting.
IF you are going to AirVenture I would suggest purchasing you tickets in advance on the EAA web site. I will be marking out camping space when I arrive, probably on the 21st. In the past I have been able to mark out sufficient space with little difficulty. Occasionally campground security will come around and want to see the camping credential for for those who are expected to be arriving. Technically camping fees should be paid from the day that the space is marked out until a person leaves.
EAA Chapter 284 will hold its June 2016 chapter meeting on Sunday, June 12, 2016 at Red Stewart Airfield at 2:30 PM. Here some news of interest to chapter member planning to attend Airventure in Oshkosh Wisconsin this year that we can discuss at Sunday’s meeting:
EAA Offers Group Camping reservations
The EAA is now offering group camping reservations for up to 4 sites for a flat rate of $247.00. The The basic rate for staying in Camp Scholler is $27/day. The $247 rate is equivalent to 9 days of camping. I normally arrive late the Wednesday before the show opens and generally stay for a total of 10 days. I arrive early to mark out camping sites for chapter members and some folks from the Fisher Builders group. It appears that I would have to pay for the 4 reservations in advance for a total of $988.00. If the chapter opts for this program I would have to have member’s money in time to make the reservation.
Just a reminder that the May EAA 284 Chapter meeting will be held on the 3rd Sunday this month and not on the usual 2nd Sunday
We make this change every year so that our members can share Mothers Day with their families.
