    Make sure you read the notam and understand it. There are youtubes of people flying in, watch a few. When you make your signs use card stock not paper and make them large and bold. Imagine your the marshaller trying to understand a half folded over piece of paper scribbled in route. I'm usually in the back seat of a RV8 with the canopy open trying to hold up my signs in the prop blast.

    Okay guys, here is what is planned right now from the SWPC. The convention will be held at Lock Haven on June 21 through 25 along with Sentimental Journey, providing the state of Pennsylvania allows it to happen. Then we will stage at Baraboo WI for our arrival into OSH. Starting July 21 we will be arriving at KDLL with a brief on Friday July 23 for our departure into OSH on Saturday morning. As Gilbert pointed out, we will launch airplanes at 1 minute intervals to provide spacing and a continuous trail of Short Wing Pipers into Oshkosh. The first 50 planes will parked as a group in Vintage. As long as this Covid thing doesn't get in the way, we will have a really good time this year. A lot of people have been working on this for a long time and we hope to get as many people to attend as possible and make this a really good year of friends and fellowship!

    More detail will come soon,

    Steve

    Like Jeurgen, I'm putting together some summer flying plans. Having never been to OSH, I'd like to really make this happen this year. Just need to find someone willing to fly shotgun fron Denver. Any other Shortwingers coming from this direction for a flight of 2 or more?

    I would definitely meet up with others somewhere in Wisco. I'm about an hour from OSH.

    I'm thinking of flying up to Baraboo KDLL on the 22nd or 23rd, then fly into OSH on Saturday. Really! Just two of us interested?

    I have my calendar blocked to come up to KDLL and then stay at OSH the whole week. I’ll fly to OSH in June for a “work week” to help prepare the grounds.
