Black Otter 2019!

Post by bullojm1 »

Wow, how did Oshkosh sneak up on me so quickly this year???

Who's in for Black Otter 2019? What day works best? I rather liked Tuesday last year. Only downside is <not> missing out on the Van's banquet.

Thoughts?

This will be my 8th Oshkosh, 7th in my RV-7 and 6th consecutive! I don't recall if I went to The Black Otter my first year - I drove in from Chicago and only spent one night (CJ's tent in Camp Scholler :o ).

Let's make it Tuesday. Who's got rides, and how many can you squeeze in? Right now for attendees I have:
  • (2) Painless and Guest
  • (1) Bruce +1
  • (1) Bullock

One night in a tent with CJ.... Have you recovered yet?? :o


I’ll have the Queen of the Fleet there, but may just have one free seat. I’m going to assume Eric S will be attending as well.

What time at the Otter?

I have room in my car for 3. I usually take CJ since nobody else can put up with him for that long!

Aiming to arrive 530ish?

There might be a slight issue....they claim they didn't order enough prime rib :o . I am going to call them when they open at 4pm and let everyone know. We have a few alternative places picked just in case.
