 To those planning on attending Oshkosh '97, if you go to
and browse the pages you will see a change in admission policy.
It is now three tiered:
Current members (join prior to 16 july '97         $13.00
New members     (join after 16 July '97            $16.00
NON-EAA MEMBERS                                    $21.00

I expressed my concerns about having people not knowledgeable about
airplanes on the flight line and the potential for damage to Tom
Poberezny via e-mail (tpoberezny at I received a phone call
from a Mr. Schumacher (hope I spelled his name right) who said that
my concerns were being addressed, and that only 7% of the previous
years admissions were non-flight line passes. I stated that 7% of
several hundred thousand is still a big number, but that I would 
reconsider my decision to not expose my airplane to that level of
potential damage.
I have reconsidered, and I am not bringing my airplane to Oshkosh this 
year. When I see how the issue has been addressed first hand, I'll
make plans for next year.
I'll be there either around the IAC building or my volunteer position,
in the Communication Center.
