EAA’s AirVenture 2013 is just days away and Short Wingers are already driving and flying in to this wonderful annual event. AirVenture is a great place to meet up with members of our Short Wing Family – but – if you’ve been to AirVenture, you already know it’s a HUGE event and it can be terribly hard to find people there.
If you are looking for SWPC members or airplanes, be sure to stop at the SWPC table located in the Vintage Hangar about 100 feet south of the VAA Red Barn. Our table is managed by member Clete Cisler and should be staffed by Clete and other members from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday the 27th through the evening of Friday, August 2nd.
The SWPC Table is a great place to connect with other Short Wingers! Be sure to sign in and make a note of where you are parked or staying on the sign up sheet Clete keeps at our SWPC table so other people can find you. And, if you feel like getting out of the sun and want to help out the Club and talk to people, sign up to work a shift at the table.
Here’s some info from gathered from our Facebook page on where Short Wings have been know to, or are planning, to park:
Jerry Isbell from Ohio wrote , “there will be about twelve of our Short Wing Pipers just west of the Hangar Café [near row 66W]. We park there every year. Look us up. From California to Switzerland, and many places in between. Just west of us is Jim Gardner.”
Daniel Miller noted that “In the past many Pacer types have managed to be together in the west side of the vintage parking”
Feel free to add a comment below noting where you parked your Short Wing at AirVenture to further help fellow SWPC members find you. If you’d like, you can also comment as to where you are camped in Camp Scholler or post comments about trying to get a group together for dinner at AirVenture or to do some airplane watching with a fellow Short Winger or two!
If you have Short Wing news or pictures you are willing to share on the SWPC website, be sure to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll be posting updates on AirVenture if we can. Check back at our AirVenture page or Latest News page to read the updates.
