Fun with our EAA guests

August 25, 2014 by braytonbb

This picture was a memorable evening out with some of our EAA guests. Yes, it should have been posted a month ago, but we have been pretty busy around here. Thank you so very much for that by the way! We love it!

We usually have the same guests every year, for the exception of one room that sometimes rotates out with new guests. That being said, we have become great friends with these guests, that unfortunately, we only see once a year. They are usually so busy working that they have little time to play, but this year, some of them made the exception. We introduced them to the best cheese curds in town and yummy burgers.

Don’t ask me what is going on with Scott. He always has to be the unique one in the photo.

Hops & Props is back again for another year at the EAA grounds. Hops & Props is the premier event for beer connoisseurs and fine food tasting this Saturday, March 8 from 7:00-10:00 PM. You can be part of a VIP experience prior to the general session. More information coming soon.

You will defiantly get a chance to try something new and perhaps find a new favorite. 

Great music from several live bands, food, coffee and sweets also add to this incredible event!

EAA Skiplane Fly-In

January 20, 2014 by braytonbb

EAA Airventure is months away as I am now thinking of warmer weather. If you are getting that itch though to catch a glimpse of a few planes, or should I say skiplanes, the annual EAA Skiplane Fly-In is approaching. Traditionally it has been in January, but the date has been moved to  Saturday, February 8, at EAA’s Pioneer Airport in Oshkosh, to increase the likelihood of sufficient snow to host flying activities.

This incredible winter event, which has welcomed more than 30 skiplanes in the past, celebrates  skiplane flying as well as the anniversary of the first-ever meeting of the Experimental Aircraft Association which was on January 26, 1953.

In the unlikely event that snow and weather conditions do not permit aircraft arrivals at Pioneer Airport on February 8, other activities will continue as planned, including complimentary chili and cake served beginning at 10:30 a.m.

The Skiplane Fly-In runs from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and is free of charge to the general public. Signs will direct visitors to the skiplane area upon arrival to the museum. Shuttle services will also operate from Basler Flight Service and Orion Flight Services for those landing at Wittman Regional Airport. Regular admission rates apply for guests visiting the museum itself.
