BONUS to OSH Seabee owners!
Member Dennis Dent is inviting all Seabee owners (and passengers) to his rental house on
Lake Poygan (about 10 NM NW of OSH) for his birthday party!
Coordinates are N44.10 W088.65
Dennis OSH
Elev: 804'. Freq: 123.45
Fly out will be coordinated at OSH.
Mooring on the lake and I believe limited parking on the shore.
You can spend the night (tent) or just fly out for the day and back to OSH
after the airshow; 6:30 I think.
We could all meet at the Seaplane Base and takeoff from there.
More to be announced.
