Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
I was delighted with the response I received from builders who would like to bring their Zeniths to Oshkosh for 2011. I received 18 replies from pilots who would like to come to Oshkosh next year if we put up some sort of formal event. So it looks like we will proceed! I even received 2 e-mails from builders who would like to help, and one in Kenosha who would like to coordinate a place to assemble before the convention for those who would like to fly in formation to Oshkosh!
So here we go! I am meeting with Tom Poberezny on Thursday, September 16th at 10:00 AM do discuss the possibility of having EAA help host our Zodiac family. On my list of discussion points will be having a place on the field where we can ALL park together similar to the RV's of today and the Long-eze's of yesterday. We also would like EAA to give us press release space in the magazine. I will also ask EAA to honor Chris and the family at next year’s convention.
Please help me by thinking about this and posting ideas that I should take along to my meeting with Tom.
Once EAA agrees to a suitable parking arrangement, we can go on with step 3, providing a place for everyone to stay in both the campgrounds and at the University, provide transportation, publicity, etc.
Please help me by posting your ideas. We sure can have a lot of fun with this!
