Fellow Builders,

Thanks so much to everyone that attended the Zenith Builders Banquet during the Oshkosh EAA convention. The event was held at the Elks Lodge in Oshkosh. With 162 Zenith builders attending, this was the largest Zenith banquet to date for the Elks Lodge. Profits from the event go to the many charities that the Elks Lodge support including education and Veterans groups.

And once again the door prizes were outstanding. Patricia Porter was the grand prize winner of the David Clark headset donated by the David Clark Corp., John Read was the winner of the Sporty's Air Band radio.

We had a huge surprise when Robert Hamilton, President of the Dynon Corporation,  stepped up at the banquet and donated one of Dynon's new glass panels to be used as a door prize! Talk about a surprise! The panel isn't even on the market yet! Ken Fullilove was the winner of the Dynon panel.

The 50/50 raffle raised a little over $700 for Elks charities. The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, gave his portion back to the Elks in honor of his father, who was also an Elk. 

Pictures of the winners are attached below. Thanks again for everyone who came to the event, and we will see you at Oshkosh 2019!
