By Ian Brown, EAA 657159, Editor and Canadian Council Board Member
June 2018 - I guess the countdown clock started the day after EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017, but now we’re down to the to-do lists and travel-planning stages. The EAA Canada Tent will be back in action this year with a stellar cast of presenters. Canadian chapters are already booking group camping sites, and individuals are downloading the NOTAM.
We’re excited to be planning our forum presentations again, and looking forward to seeing many of you in the audience. Here is a list of the presentations and presenters.

Don’t miss our free Tim Horton’s coffee on Monday morning beginning at 8 a.m. while supplies last. We’ll also have some local doughnuts.
On Wednesday, we’ll have our breakfast near the EAA Nature Center 7-8 a.m. The breakfast is free to Canadian EAA members, but tickets are required and can be picked up on Monday. They go fast and space is limited. Immediately after the breakfast, we’ll have a presentation honouring great Canadian contributors to the EAA spirit.
We’re also continuing the traditional free ice cream social on Thursday at 4 p.m.
Two more events we encourage Canadians to attend but which aren’t organized by your Canadian Council are the parade of international visitors under their flags on Friday at noon, and the international visitors dinner and party on Friday night. You can pick up tickets for that at the International Visitors Tent just behind the EAA Canada Tent. Just go to the Canadian desk and tell them we sent you.
