Chapters in Oshkosh, Join the Party!
March 2017 - EAA, for the second straight year, is offering a special camping package for EAA chapters! Chapters now have an affordable opportunity to establish a “beachhead” at which to base their activities. Rather than paying by the day, a campsite will be staked out until the convention ends. Chapters are able to purchase in advance up to six campsites at a flat rate to establish a chapter base of operations. Since the campsites will be staked out in advance, each chapter can direct its members to camp in the reserved area.
With the introduction of the chapter camping program for AirVenture 2016, EAA chapters were encouraged to compete for the coveted Oshkosh Chapter Grand Champion Award. Points were awarded based on the number of chapter members camping at the convention, the number of airplanes flown in by chapter members, and the distance traveled by the chapter to Oshkosh; bonus points were awarded for the best chapter campsite setup and decorations. EAA Chapter 237, located in Blaine, Minnesota, took home the 2016 Oshkosh Chapter Grand Champion Award.
With Oshkosh 2017 drawing closer by the day, it is time prepare your chapter for the 2017 convention. Be sure to sign up for chapter camping, and register for the Chapter Grand Champion Award!
