ASSOCIATION
INFORMATION
 
 T

ESPIE
BUTCH
JOYCE
PRESIDENT,
VINTAGE AIRCRAFT ASSOCIATION
It s
the beginning
ofJuly,
and EAA AirVenture 1999
is
just
down
the
end
of
the runway
, so to
speak. This
year
should be once again a great show the entire family should be able
to
enjoy. The weekend
of
June
2
were the dates for the first annual Vintage Aircraft area work party. The work weekend was headed up by Bob Brauer, your new Convention V AA Maintenance Chairman. Bob and the crew were able to install new windows at the V AA Head quarters and build a foot bridge across the large ditch
just
south
of
the type club tent (just
to
the northwest
of
the shower house). There were a number
of
other projects that got completed during this weekend. My thanks go out to everyone who helped during this work weekend.
If
you'd like
to
know how you might be able
to
assist Bob Brauer
in
doing Maintenance and other projects
of
that nature, you can contact him at 3121779-2105 or E-mail atphotopilot@aol.com. Steve Nesse has again put together a great workshop tent area for your enjoyment and education, hosted by your Vin tage
Aircraft
Association
.
Some
of
the
most
well
known
names in the metal forming and
shaping
industry
will be there. The tent
is
located just south
of
the V AA Headquarters building. Should you like any further infonnation about this activity, contact Steve at 507/373-1674. Located next to the Maintenance tent is one
of
the most popular services that the Vintage Aircraft Association pro vides for its members -the Type Club Headquarters. In the past this area had been chaired by Joe and Juila Dickey. They did a great
job
in
making this area very popular. This year, they have passed the torch to your Director Roger Gomoll. Roger tells me it sounds as though there is going to be an other great turnout.
If
you have any questions about the type club tent, contact
Roger
Gomoll at
507/288-2810 or
rgomoll@heritagehalls.org . Our flyout this year
is
chaired by Bob Lumley -for ad vance information you can contact Bob at
4141782 2633
or lumper@execpc.com. The Past Grand
Champion
reunion is
chaired
by Steve Krog.
We
expect a record turnout for this year. We encourage past grand champions to come back to Oshkosh so we can continue to enjoy viewing these beautiful aircraft. For more
information about this activity
,
please
contact Steve
at 414/966-7627 or sskrog@aol.com.
The
aircraft parking
for the
Vintage Aircraft
area
is chaired by George Daubner, assisted by Geoff Robison, who is also the
Chairman
of
Security for
our
area. Should you
have any
parking concerns
you can
contact
George at
414/673-5885 or antique2@ao1.com. You can contact Geoff at 219/493-4724 or chief7025@aol.com. Volunteers are always needed to help us man the different activities
in
the Vintage Aircraft area during AirVenture and our Manpower booth is chaired by Anna Osborn. Anna will open the booth on Sunday, July 25, for you early arrivals. Should you like to contact Anna in advance
of
the show you can do so at 803/896-4614 or annajohn@ktc.com. There will once again be an Association gathering Sunday night
during EAA AirVenture
at the
EAA
Nature Center. Tickets for this event can be purchased at the red bam in ad vance
ofthe
gathering. Should you need any assistance or need any information any time during the fly-in, V AA Headquarters
is
the place to come. During the day, there
is
generally someone there who can help. Just stop at the information booth and say, "Help " Should there be something that I might be able
to
help you with, contact me at 336/393-0344 or windsock@aol.com. There are a couple
of
items
T
should pass along
to
you for
information.
As
many
of
you
know,
each year
for
over
a decade we have given out a Participants Plaque, featuring the convention logo and a photograph
of
your airplane on the
AirVenture flightline.
A
great memento for you
to
take home and hang
on
your hangar
wall
or
in
your
den .
For
V
AA members, that plaque
is free for the
asking.
Bring
your V
AA
card and be sure and stop by V AA Headquarters and pick yours up
For those who
are not
VAA members
,
if
you d
like to have one
of
these plaques, the cost
is
$10.00. You can sign
up
to be a V AA member at V AA Headquarters, as well as any other EAA membership booth on the field. Also, an
added
benefit
of
VA
A
membership
is the dis
count
you will receive when you purchase items from the Vintage Aircraft
Association s
store. You can easily gain back your membership cost at Oshkosh this year.
Ask
a friend to

would
love to have
them
on board.
Let s
all pull in the same direction for the good
of
aviation. Remember we are better together. Join us and have
it
all.
