Scott Cabot, a pilot and fellow Madison Club member, has offered to assist us in escorting a group of Madison Club members at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh on Monday, July 23. Our group will have an opportunity to explore the grounds and receive info about the various planes on display. EAA is very large and this is an excellent way to navigate the show, especially if it is your first visit.

This year’s show features a celebration of the Centennial of the final year of WWI, featuring historic aircraft, one of only two flying B29 bombers, a collection of rare British Airforce jets, and 12 vintage Travel Air bi-planes.

If you are interested in this opportunity (no cost beyond admission and parking), you must RSVP by Monday, July 9.

I have greatly enjoyed organizing the Wine Club tastings and interacting with its participants over the past twelve years. It is exciting to be a part of this special trip. Truly this is a grand opportunity to experience the magic of Bordeaux.
