Here is an update on the festivities for the “Zeniths to Oshkosh” builders banquet and aircraft parking for the 2013 Oshkosh EAA Convention.
There has been a big change for this year's Zenith Builders Banquet. We outgrew our previous locations so we moved it this year to the Elks Lodge in Oshkosh. We have very comfortable seating for over 250 people, our own private bar, and award winning food. The banquet will be held on Thursday, August 1st. The bar will open at 5:30 and dinner starts at 7:30. The price of the ticket has been reduced from years past to $18 per person. On the menu this year will be the Elks Lodge specialty, Pineapple Rum Glazed Ham and Broasted Chicken with all the trimmings. There will be a very special surprise dessert so make sure you bring your camera, and don't forget the great door prizes!
Pre-convention Banquet Tickets Available
The banquet will be held at the Elks Lodge, 175 Fernau Ave, Oshkosh, WI. The Lodge is very easy to find. There will be maps and tickets available at the Zenith display just like in previous years. If you would like your tickets sent to you along with the map, there are two ways to receive your tickets. You can mail a check for $18 per person to Joe Scheibinger, Zenith Banquet, 2809 Scenic Drive, Oshkosh, WI 54904, or you can use PayPal and send the money to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your tickets will be sent in the mail. Buying advance tickets helps the Zenith staff save time and sell airplanes, and it also gives us a better way to estimate the number of people attending.
EAA Zenith Showplane Parking
EAA has confirmed the Zenith showplane parking will be just north of the Homebuilders center on the flight line in its usual place. Place a sign in your window indicating "HOMEBUILT PARKING" and then one with "ZENITH". When they get near the parking area flagmen will help get you to the location requested. Once your aircraft is parked, EAA's policy is no engine operations in the parking area and the aircraft will need to be pushed to the east of the safety line for engine start. So if you are anticipating demonstrating or flying any of the aircraft during the convention, EAA has a new commercial demo ride operation parking area along taxiway p1 about 5 rows to the north of the Zenith parking row.
Here is something new for 2013! The Oshkosh Elks Lodge has a very large parking area. they are offering motor home and trailer parking for $10 per night for anyone coming to the banquet before coming to the EAA. If you would like to park your camping vehicle at the Elks for any number of nights, please call me at 920-237-1450 to make reservations. Some electrical spots are available for a slightly higher rate on a first come basis.
We could use some volunteers for the event. We will need 2 volunteers to come to the banquet early and help make sure everything is working smoothly, and to work the registration table. If possible, Also, I would like to have volunteers who are knowledgeable with the Zenith Company to escort invited EAA dignitaries.
Seeing that I live in Oshkosh, I would be more than happy to help you with anything you need to make your stay in Oshkosh the best ever. If you need any more information on the banquet, camping, special foods, etc, please call me directly at 920-237-1450 or E-mail me at email@example.com.
