SUNDAY NIGHT - 7PM 25th July 2010
Due to the massive rain events and super soaker rains OSH has had here in the
whole month of July, not to mention the last 72 hours, many plans have been
The formation flight has been cancelled, everyone has made the best
arrangements they can for locating themselves and their airplanes, some at
OSH, some at Appleton and other places. The B2OSH tent is or has been set up
(our location for Beer2OSH), I have learned that the the B2OSH party has been
moved to Monday night (already announced by Larry to me and to others, I do
not know if he has published anything yet, this stuff is moving quickly), the
ABS indoor dinner is/was scheduled for Tuesday, Kevin has told me he is doing
the Margarita and pizza party tomorrow starting at 11AM in the B2OSH tent.
Being faced with pushing Beer2OSH to Wednesday or tomorrow/Sunday, and
counseling with a few folks here on the scene, I have elected to move Beer2OSH
to tomorrow night, Sunday July 25th at 7pm (24 hours earlier than originally
My apologies for the change in plans but this has been a weather event unlike
any the veterans can remember at OSH.

food prep at the B2OSH tent around 3-4pm tomorrow.

Phenomenal Pictures of Old
Designed to enhance the
camaraderie and liquid libations enjoyed at the infamous annual
Margarita Party that is sponsored by Kevin O. after the
B2OSH Formation arrival at OSH.
This event encourages the
sharing of exotic and "full
strength" Beers (not to be confused with any Beer using the word "Light") from
your part of the world, to be shared, bartered or traded with others at the
Beer2OSH party. Bringing at least a 12-pack of your favorite
"premium/micro-brew/exotic" beer gets you a wristband to participate in the
grilled brats & corn and liquid libations brought by others.
Still confused as to what
qualifies as an exotic and full strength Beer? Click
Don't worry, if you don't have
enough useful load to bring an exotic brew, you can participate in Beer2OSH's
eating and drinking camaraderie by making a modest donation to the "kitty" when
you come through the food line.

So far, we will have a keg of
Bock brought by Texas Lister Mike S.
Yours truly will be bringing a few cases of Shiner Bock
longnecks hopefully to trade again for a Pacific Northwest Lister's
As a special Beer2OSH treat, we'll also be
grilling Wisconsin's famous Usinger Brats
and locally grown corn on the Kevin O. donated monster
Here we are cooking up the brats and corn in 2009

Beer2OSH III DOOR PRIZES
Thanks to the coordinated efforts of the B2OSH
folks, we will have a completed
beer can model to give away as a door prize at the Beer2OSH celebration. Each
person coming through the food line will be given a raffle ticket for the

This was the B.C. Air Bud Bo Model for 2009
The Shiner Poster Prints below will be hanging
in the tent to put everyone in the right "frame of mind" for Beer2OSH III. They
will be 24" x 30" prints on 0.020" styrene sheet stock. A great addition for
your Beechcraft Hangar
1. All Beer2OSH brews must be consumed in plastic cups that will be provided. So when you
crack one open, demonstrate your superior pour skills and serve your fantastic
brew in a plastic cup. If you must display your selected bottle of exotic brew,
do the right thing and stay close to the trash cans in our area. Broken glass on the ground can be a FOD hazard to people,
planes and air mattresses. Thanks in
advance for your cooperation.
2. Although, as originally conceived, Beer2OSH
is a "private" gathering of members of the
Beech List, we are a friendly bunch and have agreed to share our party
camaraderie with other Beechcraft owners who have come to experience the annual
OSH pilgrimage. We only ask that you bring a Premium Beer or be prepared to make a small DONATION to the kitty jar at the door (Al
"D Enforcer" DeMxxxx the Texan from New Jersey will be our "doorman") to offset the
party supplies costs! <vbg>
3. If you're planning to attend our Beer2OSH
bash and won't be
able to carry in Beer or Party Snacks, please consider making an advance
DONATION "to the cause" via the PayPal button below.
4. All advance donors of $40 or more by June 30th, will
receive a FREE Beer2OSH
VIP shirt (with embroidered Beer2OSH Logo) that you can wear to the party (Al "The
Enforcer" will also greet you with a smile when you show up empty handed <vbg>).
I'll deliver your shirt to you at OSH before the party to save on shipping
costs. If you won't be able to attend and just want to make a donation, include
your shipping address and I'll ship your shirt to you.
Here is the 2010 embroidered logo
stencil and 2009 shirt. The 2010 Shirt will be similar.
5. Donations will be used to defray the cost
of the the food, party supplies, cups and ice that we will have for the evening as
well as some of the great beer you'll be drinking (and anything else we can
think of to make the party a great event <vbg>)!
