Fellow Zenith Builders,

It's time once again to announce the Zenith Aircraft Builders Banquet for 2018! Our event will once again be held at the Oshkosh Elks Lodge, 175 West Fernau Ave, in Oshkosh, on Thursday, July 26. As always we have very comfortable seating, our own private bar, award winning food, and door prizes! The full bar will open at 5:30 PM for people that would like to come and relax early. Dinner starts at 7:00 PM. Tickets are once again available at the door for $20 per person.

The Elks Lodge will take cash, Master Card, & Visa. Any profits from the banquet and from the 50/50 raffles go toward the Elks charities that include the Veterans groups at the King Retirement Home, and our Elks Lodge statewide scholarship programs.

EAA Zenith Show plane Parking

Zenith show plane parking will be just north of the Homebuilders center on the flight line in its usual place across from the Zenith factory display. Please follow the NOTAMS instructions for signage for parking, and it would be a great idea to add another sign that says "ZENITH". When you get near the parking area flagmen will help get you to the location requested. Most of the parking volunteers know what Zenith airplanes look like, but any extra signage helps! Once your aircraft is parked, EAA's policy is no engine operations in the parking area and the aircraft will need to be pushed to the east of the safety line for engine start. If you are anticipating demonstrating or flying any of the aircraft during the convention, park your aircraft as close to the flight line as you can.


The Oshkosh Elks Lodge has a very large parking area and they are offering motor home parking for $10 per night for anyone coming to the banquet before coming to the EAA, or if you need overnight accommodations for after the banquet. For more information please call me at 920-237-1450 or E-mail me at backstagelive@gmail.com to make reservations. Electrical spots are available on a first come basis.

Everyone have a very safe and wonderful trip to Oshkosh. If I can be your Oshkosh connection for anything please call me at 920-237-1450 or e-mail me at backstagelive@gmail.com and I can help.

Watch for updates.
