Bits and Pieces
If you’re reading this newsletter, you are most likely already at, wishing you were at, or nearly at Oshkosh for the AirVenture 2010. You will have an itinerary or plan of action for your hectic days, wanting to take in as much as possible of all the sights, sounds, and excitement of the greatest aviation show on Earth.

Add the following to your schedule:
If you’re flying a Canadian registered aircraft to Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, be sure you pick up a special Canadian prop card to display on your prop.
Canadian Welcome Desk and Show Information Centre
Be sure you make one of your first stops at the Canadian welcome desk in the EAA Welcome Centre. We want to meet you, know where you’re from, and help you connect with other EAA members and chapters in your area. Use this welcome centre (our first Canadian Oshkosh booth) as your ‘home away from home.’ Stop by for a cool drink and, if you can, volunteer for 20 hours to help man the booth and earn a free wristband for next year’s Oshkosh.
The intent is to use this welcome desk as a current update centre on happenings of interest to Canadians. To do this, we need your help in bringing items of interest to our attention, as well as using the information tidbits gathered, for your own information purposes.
Ice Cream Social
Mark your calendar for this: EAA Headquarters is holding an Ice Cream Social for all Canadians on Tuesday, July 27, between 6 and 8 p.m. in the Partner Resource Center. (This is the large white tent behind Exhibit Hangars A and C.) Let’s see a big turnout for this event. Volunteers are needed to help serve and scoop ice cream. Use this opportunity to meet your Canadian council members, and to get the gem on upcoming Canadian events and activities.
See You at the EAA Welcome Tent
