Black Otter 2017

Postby bullojm1 » Sun Jul 16, 2017 6:50 pm

It's that time of year again to plan on indulging in the finest meats and seafoods WI has to offer at the Black Otter. Does Wednesday night work best for everyone? Let me get a headcount and I will arrange transportation.

Pics from last year! What a blast!!

Count me in! Brit might come with, but she usually trains with the dogs on Wednesdays.

Now that I've almost got a flying RV, I certainly want to join the festivities. My wife, Evelyn and I will be looking forward to joining you. I'll have a car, so if anyone needs a ride I'll have probably room for two or three.

The beer tasting is in Homebuilt Camping under the new pavillion.

It is on Sunday evening around 5. Meet me there and I will brief you on the rest!

Paullie, do you have wheels?

    RV-10 Dinner and Social. 5:30pm in Camp Scholler (in the area of 55th & Lindbergh)
  • Monday

    2017 Oshkosh RV Social (AKA Beer Fairy)
    1366 WEST WAUKAU AVENUE
    Image
  • Tuesday
    Van's Banquet. Not too many people from this board will be attending. It's worth it if you haven't been before. Last year CJ and I grabbed and Uber and went off-site to grab some dinner.

OK, here's the list I have so far for the Otter:

  • Mike B
  • CJ
  • Painless [Has car - 5 spots?]
  • Eric? Painless - can you confirm? We need the sheriff to keep us in order! [Has Car]
  • Chad w/ Maybe Brittany [Has Car w/ 3 spots] (White Land Rover??)
  • Bruce Hill and Wife
  • Steve and wife Evelyn [Has car w/ 2-3 spots]
  • Paul Trotter

So we have 10 people confirmed, with 3 people with cars. We have plenty of transportation!

Departure time: It's about a 45 minute drive to the Otter, and we like to leave before the airshow. Please meet your drivers at 4pm for a 4:30pm departure. Drivers - let everyone know where you will be on the ground at Osh. - passengers will come to you!

I have a white Ram 1500 now...but I'll have to check on time. We do have extra coverage in the booth this year so I may be able to get away before 5. Brittne can't go so I have 3 seats for sure.
