Default 12th Annual N40 H.O.P.S. (Homebuilt/Owning/Piloting/Student) Party,Wed, 7/30/14

This is your official invitation to our annual HOPS Party in the
North 40 during Oshkosh Airventure. ("HOPS" stands for "Homebuilt,
Owning, Piloting, and Student".)

This will be our 32nd consecutive Oshkosh Fly-In! As always, this
party will be held at our campsite in the North 40 aircraft camping
area on Wednesday during the week of Airventure. This year, that will
be Wednesday, July 30, 2013.

If you're wondering what it's all about, here are some pix from each
year's event.

It's laid back, fun, and allows all of us to put faces with the names
we've seen on-line for years. Amelia's Landing Hotel provides the
food, while "admission" is a six-pack of good beer from your
hometown. Because we're from everywhere, this lets us all sample
beers from all over the country. It's great fun!

How does one find this party, you ask, in a sea of aircraft? It's
actually easy, with a bit of planning. Simply stop at the EAA booth
at the entrance to the North 40, and either give them our name, or
our N-number -- N14EG. They will vector you right in to our site.

Just remember that the EAA camping booth closes around 6 PM, so you
should obtain the party location earlier in the day. (Someone usually
posts it as well.)

The party starts after the airshow ends -- we usually have a nice
crowd watching the arrivals/departures that begin as soon as they
reopen the airspace. Bring a chair if you can, as that's usually what
runs out first.

If all else fails, look for the blood red RV-8A named "Amelia" in the
North 40. It will probably be the only RV-8A out there! We also
usually fly an enormously tall Texas flag over our site, so that
should help to track us down, too.

Hope to see you there!

BTW: The first 40 attendees receive the COVETED HOPS Party t-shirt!
Some guys have them going back a decade or more!

You missed a good one! We had over 50 people in attendance, with beers from over 40 different parts of the US and Germany!

Don't worry -- we'll do it again next year!
