Default 2021 Oshkosh RV Social

2021 Oshkosh RV Social

Monday July 26th


Starts When The Airshow Ends

Ends When The Kegs Run Dry (or about 10PM)

Last week the Beer Fairy emerged from her basement quarantine to ask if the world has returned to normal. "Yeah, sorta" was good enough for her, so it's official...there will be a 2021 Oshkosh RV Social!

Mark your calendars. The date is Monday, July 26th, after the airshow, in the back yard at 1366 West Waukau Ave. It's really easy to find. Go to the OSH control tower, then walk west on Waukau, out the gate to the second house, and look for the crowd in the back yard.

Our location host is again Arthur J. Gallagher & Co, aka Gallagher Aerospace. The Gallagher Gang will be in the big tent all week with refreshments and shade, plus they're hosting their own event on Wednesday evening. You're invited then too, so stop by and say thanks. It is the best place in the world to get answers to airplane insurance questions.

The Fairy drank all her own money years ago, so your favorite sponsors have again picked up the tab. They appreciate your business, so show 'em some love. The lineup includes:

Barrett Precision Engines (Rhonda, Monty, and Allen)
CQ Headsets (Scott and Tanya)
Delta Pop Aviation (Don)
Flightlines (Tom)
Flyboy/Team Rocket (Blake and Vince)
JD Air (Darwin)
Kitplanes Magazine (Marc)
Lycoming/Thunderbolt (Jeff)
SteinAir (Stein and the Gang)
TruTrak (Andrew)

The old lady ordered eleven kegs, mostly Spotted Cow, same as 2019. For some reason Lakefront Fixed Gear isn't available this year (Ms. M drank it all?), so we'll try a few kegs of another Lakefront amber called Riverwest Stein. (You like that? Fixed Gear and Stein?)

Serious message. Let's be responsible. Keep an eye on your buddy. Walk or elect a designated driver. Make sure all your people get home safe.

Slap on a name tag when you arrive; the goal is to put faces with names. Social rules are the same as VAF rules; keep it civil, and keep it RV. We'll again have plenty of water and soft drinks for the no-hops folks. If you want food, grab something on the way, or try the place next door. Don't toss your cup; keep it for refills! When a tap runs dry, find me and I'll hang another keg; can't connect them all at one time. No parking on site, unless you bring your miniature Harley. No door prize interruption this year. RSVP's are not necessary. And please, everyone try to convince Jenny to dance on the picnic table.

'Nuff said. See you there!

Unfortunately in science, what you believe is irrelevant.

Another sign the world has returned to its regularly-scheduled (an)normalcy. Wouldn't miss it!
