The Cavalier is still for sale, $500 obo. We almost had a buyer for the BD-4 but he has been unable to unload his Long-EZ project. He gave that up due to sensitivity to fiberglass.
Oshkosh is coming up soon. Traditionally the chapter has had a campsite, and would like to do so again. We had a show of hands and there appears to be plenty of interest. Mike Young has a room available at Day's Inn, contact Ron Wright if you're interested, details are also on the Yahoo Board. Chapter picture is usually taken at the chapter house with all our attendees. Jeff suggests early evening as a time in consideration of volunteers. Dave proposes Thursday at 5:30 p.m. Since the chapter house is gone so the brown arch will be the new location.
