New Visitor Amenities and Services Available This Year at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. - (June 28, 2007) — EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2007 attendees will have additional services and benefits on-site this year, especially benefiting those who camp at EAA's famed Camp Scholler. EAA AirVenture, "The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration," is July 23-29 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.
Gander Mountain, OfficeMax, and Wheel & Sprocket have partnered with EAA to offer a variety of products and services to AirVenture participants.
"These partnerships are valuable not only to EAA members and those who stay in Camp Scholler, but to everyone who attends AirVenture 2007," said Jeff Kaufman, EAA's director of business development.
In Camp Scholler, Gander Mountain will offer many outdoor items, including cots, tents, cooking equipment, lanterns, toilet paper, ponchos, and lawn chairs from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. from July 20 through July 29. Throughout the week, the company will also sponsor the movie "60º North at 500 Feet," showing in the newly renovated SkyScape Theater located in EAA's AirVenture Museum.
OfficeMax will be based just north of Exhibit Hangar C and offers office supplies, shipping services, faxing and copying to all exhibitors and attendees from 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. (July 20-29). EAA members will also receive a five percent discount on all OfficeMax products at the event. This convenience is part of a new Business Service Center that also includes DHL shipping available for all attendees and a U.S. Postal Service location.
Wheel & Sprocket's "Mobile Bike Shop" will provide services to those using bicycles in and around Camp Scholler. These services will be available 10 a.m.-8 p.m. (July 23-29) and include tire changes, wheel replacements, bike rentals, next-day service on most repairs, and a wide selection of quality bikes to purchase for the event. (NOTE: Bicycles are allowed only in the Camp Scholler and North 40 camping areas, not inside the flightline gates.)
"We sought these services as they are among the most commonly requested among AirVenture guests, especially those in the campgrounds," Kaufman said.
