    Ok guys and gals (always looking to upgrade the HBA community), it is time to finalize plans for the annual EAA Convention at Oshkosh.

    Last year HBAers gathered at Homebuilt Headquarters around 0745 or 0800 hours to meet each other face-to-face over a cup of coffee. I propose that we do so again this year. Look for a small "HBA" card on a picnic table to locate us.

    I know that some of you plan to participate by flying in, being a commercial vendor, speaking, volunteering, teaching, etc. Please let us know your details so that we can visit your display, forum, etc.

    Looking forward to seeing 2017 participants again, and meeting more of you this year.

    Should be there Thursday morning at least, and maybe Friday. I have been asked to do a presentation on "How to build and run a successful EAA chapter". I'll be doing that from 11:30 - 12:45 at the Blue Barn, and will probably have one of the Aviatres women in aviation with me. If any details change I'll let you know.

    Are any HBAers from outside of North America planning to attend?

    I had a drinking competition with two gigantic South Africans last year at their huge camp over in Scholler, and lost. I did lose in style though - woke up the next day in the back of the SUV with no idea how I got there. I do hope you are not a gigantic competitive drinker from down under.

    Thanks, Mark.

    Without your coffee, there would be no HBA morning coffee gathering.
